The nominations for the Southend-on-Sea Borough Council elections on May 22nd have been published.

Full slates for the Liberal Democrats, and Labour. The Tories have a puzzling entry in Eastwood Park – Andrew Moring is describing himself as ‘Local Conservatives’ ( and not The Conservative Party Candidate) – is there a split in Tory ranks?

UKIP have twelve candidates – up on the six originally promised, but still some way from a full slate.  The Greens have three, the far-right (in the form of the National front) have one. There are nine independents.

The most crowded ballot paper will be in Westborough owing to the two slots up for grabs. Victoria is next, with six competing for the one place. Leigh, again, produces the most straightforward choice for the electorate.

  1. UkIP have 12 candidates (in 11 wards) by my count, Julian?

  2. Yes, and this confirms my lack of arithmetic skills! I will correct.

  3. Julian it is also noticeable that Ukip are not standing against the ‘official’ Independent Party candidates. Another shameful grubby deal. I wonder this year if my Ukip opponent will be a devil this year and have the Ukip party logo on the ballot paper. The past two elections has seen him either embarrassed to have the logo or as I suspect make him look like an Independent Party candidate.

  4. Lavender says:

    ~Sigh~ Looks like I’ll be shredding my ballot paper again…

  5. No vote, no say. Voting is always a compromise – surely there must be one candidate in whichever ward you live in who you would agree with on some issues?

    Of course, I always recommend Labour, but if not Labour what were you looking for?
