Prittlewell Ward intouch Spring 2014

PrittlewellinTouchWe are four years in a Conservative-led Government. We are many more years into a Conservative-run borough in Southend-on-Sea. You would have thought this would have provide an abundance of stories – instead Meg Davidson believes the best way to win votes is to tell voters what they have told her.

Does this ‘take a look at yourself’ approach to political leaflet writing indicate an absence of news? It certainly shows a lack of ideas, whereas there is plenty of news items.

As a gesture of helpfulness I suggest the following topics for Ms Davidson in her next leaflet:

Tories, making the rich richer at the expense of the poor
How to manage once those essential services have been cut even further
NHS, sold to the highest bidder
Foodbanks – how Cameron has sent us back to the nineteenth century

That should do for now,

    Seem to be lots of female conservative candidates this May. Is it too early to tell which party has the best gender balance?

  2. It certainly looks like the Tories have bettered Labour in this respect in Southend-on-Sea. We have done better this year than in the last two sets of elections, but we still have some way to go. I have no idea what the Liberal Democrat slate will look like across the whole borough, but I doubt they will have as many female candidates as us.

    However, there is no doubting who has the best gender balance in the council chamber – half of Labour’s complement is female there.
