Down in deepest Halsall, people are asking “Where is the labour presence in Halsall?”
It has not gone unnoticed that there has been no campaigning by the Labour party there, no leaflet drops, no knocking on doors, no social media and no sightings of the Labour candidate!
It’s somewhat strange and unusual practice by West Lancashire Labour as Halsall has had a very hard working and successful labour Borough councillor. Sadly for Halsall Maureen Mills has stepped down from local politics.
Why isn’t Labour making an effort to fight for this crucial seat? This is an important election. Independents may have the balance of control.
But Halsall will probably elect the brilliant independent, local Parish Vice-Chair, Neil Campbell, the best candidate by a country mile.
