Lunchtime today saw the close of nominations for the local government elections on the 6th May. Here in Moreton West and Saughall Massie we have my colleague, Cllr Simon Mountney (Local Conservatives) seeking reelection, we also have the usual suspects, New Labour, Green, UKIP, Lib Dem and sadly this year a BNP candidate! I hope all parties join together to condemn such a far right party.
Its also interesting to note that the promises made by Merseyside Trades Council leader, Alec McFadden to stand a candidate against every Labour and Lib Dem candidate who voted for the Strategic Assett Review has just been another publicity seeking empty promise made at the time, he and his Wirral Against The Cuts Party has not fielded one candidate in any seat. The word Bull**** springs to mind.
