Over the past months a small number of readers has suggested that there should be
more opposition put up against the main parties at the elections next year.
It’s not something that interests me, I do not think it is a job I could do, but yesterday I took a look around the Electoral Commission’s website to see what might be involved. An awful lot of form filling it seemed to me. It would be nice to deliver a bloody nose to some of the leading lights at Bexley council but I shall leave that to others.
While Googling around for useful information I stumbled across the Electoral Reform Society (EFS) and found they were particularly interested in councils like Bexley. It is listed among their One Party States with 82·54% Conservative members.
The EFS is currently asking for your story if you consider you live in ‘A Rotten Borough’. What are you waiting for?
