Vote strategically!

leave a comment »

That’s the message from Peter Shaw

Had to have a laugh at the latest missive from the South Tyneside Independent Alliance whose editor of The Beacon newseletter urges people to vote strategically to get rid of Labour’s Cllr. Audrey McMillan in South Shields’ Beacon and Bents ward. The Independent Alliance reckon that a vote for any other candidate than theirs will amount to a Labour victory, because a plethora of candidates with with questionable motives are out to do their man in!

This is the same Independent Alliance who strategically placed a Branley family member into the West Park ward last year (perhaps with questionable motives) split the vote and ended the long term tenure of a very well respected and hard working Progressive councillor Ken Hickman! The ward now has a Labour member for the first time in eons.

You have to admire their sheer nerve!

Anyway, it looks like we are in for a lengthy campaign for the local government elections in South Tyneside this year, I’ve already had a leaflet from the Progressives, the Indies are out and about and I’ve just nearly ran over Jimmy Foreman out distributing leaflets – shouldn’t he be playing fives and threes on a Sunday morning?
