At tonight’s Charity and Finance meetings of Anston Parish Council sham Independent Cllr.John Ireland (who is standing as the Independent candidate in Anston for RMBC) was asked for a copy of his leaflet and a summary of his manifesto. ”I have not printed any leaflets and my manifesto is I live in Anston”. You may remember a previous post about Ireland standing for election out of pure spite, he did this at the behest of the Labour councillors who, because they have been exposed as ‘not fit for purpose’ failures, persuaded him to put his name on the ballot paper to split the non – Labour vote. Ireland is making a mockery of the democratic process and this is the only time this blog urges people NOT to vote for this charlatan. Vote for a real candidate with real policies. Someone who has put in the hard work delivering leaflets, who wants to make a difference and has been out meeting people. Not a Labour poodle who doesn’t give a carrot if he’s elected or not.
