Polling is only a few days away and I have more or less finished my campaign. About 95% of the houses in my division have been leafleted twice and we have also been out knocking on doors canvassing. Indeed, there is no substitute for actually talking to people to get to know their concerns.
At this point I would like to thank all those who came to help me, it was great to meet up with other like minded individuals from the Libertarian Party and I know some of you made long journeys to get here.
But I have to ask why am I the only candidate who have been round canvassing and leafleting. In a way I can understand why the labour, libdem and Ukip candidates are mere paper candidates only on the ballot to make their party look good. They are discredited parties with nothing new to offer the voter.
But what I can’t understand is the attitude of the incumbent tory, Cllr Simon King, does he hold the voters in contempt?
He must do, otherwise he would have at least made the effort to put out a leaflet.
But he couldn’t even bring himself to do that. Does he think the position is his by right, that just because he is also a district councillor and town councillor that he needn’t put in the effort?
What sort of message is he sending to the people of Wisbech?
The message is coming out loud and clear, he takes you for granted.
