I have been remiss in not providing
the promised link to the Blackfen & Lamorbey Independents’ new leaflet before today.
Having seen an early copy I think I can say without fear of contradiction that it’s better than any Conservative, Labour or UKIP leaflet I have seen so far - in terms of paper quality anyway. It looked like a quality job to me; as for content I shall leave others to judge.
One thing that caught my eye was Mick Barnbrook’s (true) claim to have been responsible for getting several expense fiddling MPs banged up. Recent events may have persuaded you that he still has work to do in that department which gives the perfect excuse to extract the following letter from a file he loaned me some while ago.
Voters in Blackfen have the opportunity to get rid of a councillor associated with extreme homophobic obscenities and another whose only claim to fame is that he pays care workers less than any other nearby borough and who was in a civil partnership with a man who suddenly disappeared after a theft from his councillor employer. A very odd couple of candidates, one proudly gay and the other apparently of very much the opposite view. I think I would prefer to elect a man who has spent a lifetime chasing crooks rather than people who are so closely associated with the criminal fraternity.
