2018 Local Elections
2018 Local Elections
We are less than a month away from the Local Elections that will be held on 3rd May 2018 and was wondering what thoughts people have, I am part of a group on Facebook with over 31,000 members who are fighting to stop Brexit and from what i have read they plan to vote Lib Dem, Green ect as a protest vote, weather this does anything or not remains to be seen. I have the choice between Labour, UKIP and Torys so even if i wanted to do that i cant. For once i have considered not voting as Labour want to knock down my town and re-build it which would cost a lot of money and its now coming out that they are not even talking to local businesses about their plans which has already forced one highly respected independent shop to close.

Anyone else got anything to add? i have also included a Poll in this feed as well, It will not show anyone what option you pick.

RE: 2018 Local Elections
I actually trust some Local Politicians less than the National Politicians , in some areas the vote is a foregone conclusion which no matter who you vote for wont result in a change , instead of voting for a third of the seats every year bar one , it should be one election every 4 years to fill all available seats on the council , this would probably result in more councils changing hands than is the case now.

Some Councils do hold all their Seats at once but i do like seeing the ones that come up every 3 out of 4 years as its a good indication of which way the votes are swinging and can act as an alarm bell for a party to change its policys before its to late

I know she’s standing for Haydock Amy ‘whats her name’ and somebody for Labour, but I haven’t seen a single leaflet from any other party that concerns St Helens. Nor any knock on the door from either candidate.

Be interesting to see what proposals are for Greenbelt and fracking.

In my ward, we have Labour, Conservatives, UKIP & Green candidates standing. Looks like the Lib Dens have given up.

Actually in St Helens the number of Lib Dem Candidates has gone up since the last local election (2016) as the Lib Dems stood in 3 wards Eccelston, Newton-Le-Willows and Sutton but this time they are standing in Bold, Eccelston, Newton-Le-Willows, Sutton and Windle. Interesting UKIP stood in 15 Wards last time and are standing in 9 this time having dropped out of Bold, Earlstown, Eccelston, Haydock, Moss Bank and Newton-Le-Willows
