I wonder if you can help me, I have been trying(without success) to find a list of the EU and local candidates for Bristol.
I have been through quite a few different sites but cannot get any satisfaction, perhaps they are all hiding seeing as the present climate is anti politics!!
Got a feeling that I need to do something drastic this time and see if there is anybody not in the top three parties that I can trust enough to vote for.
This lot in our local government are a bunch of liars whose noses are so far in the trough they could get a job in Westminster as advisors.
I spent a couple of years fighting them over the prefab project (another story) so I got to know them well, especially as the same ones just seem to change chairs and positions but stay there like bloody old outdated fossils (yes that’s you Peter Hammond, you bearded Tory boy tosser with an equalities policy, ed.).
Sorry, waffled a bit. The prefab project is still going on, I had to leave mine three years ago and the site still has not been re-developed, so much for the jobsworths haste to chuck us out.
The scandal is that like the new development at Elm Grove/Filton Avenue, apparently the rented properties on the pre-fab sites are being handed over to housing associations, so I’ve been told.
Look out then for council tax rises in a couple of years, without rents they will have to find their dosh from somewhere.
