THE LOCAL ELECTION BATTLEGROUND IN ROCHFORD DISTRICT
April 26, 2016 by Editor
But this is not news for our local papers who have failed to tell readers that there even IS an Election.
How could control be lost? With just 20 non Conservatives being elected.
21 Labour candidates
9 Liberal Democrats candidates
8 UKIP candidates
8 Rochford District Residents candidates
4 Green Party candidates
2 Independent candidates
There are 52 non Conservative Candidates.
If only 20 were to be elected then RDC would be in No Overall Control leaving the road clear for a Rainbow Administration.
If only 50% were elected, 26, then there could be a comfortable majority for a Rainbow Administration.
This is NEWS. But not something that the Echo wishes to run even in the public interest.
Or do residents wish to see the Conservatives to continue to be in Overall Control or even have a LANDSLIDE VICTORY?
