Hullo, it’s me again
I am a member of an endangered species, a Conservative councillor standing for re-election on May 2. And I am worried!
I am in danger of extinction despite being in opposition to a Labour-led council for the last 3 years. During that time we have had regular increases in council tax. And their proposed potty local plan! But being seen with “terrible Theresa” is not good for my image, because the issue threatening to wipe me out is Brexit. Our only hope for survival will be the recognition by the voters that local issues have a more direct impact on their lives than Brexit.
Things like potholes.
OK, hands-up, Town Green is neglected and we did say we would fix it, but we promised Brexit too…you just can’t believe a word we say!
