    Most interesting to note is Wish Ward: 2 former Conservative councillors who defected to the Lib Dems, now clearly disillusioned with party politics and running as Independents. Jenny also served a term as Mayor and stood for the Conservatives as PPC for Hove soon after her first husband died.

    We do need Independent councillors but when we get them, they are either irrelevant, ruthlessly sidelined and left off committees (when there is a clear majority Administration), or, in a hung council with no overall majority, they have votes to sell to the highest bidder in horsetrading that could benefit their wards (Brunswick & Adelaide under the 2 LibDems, Paul Elgood & David Watkins).

    This of course happened in 2007 when LibDem David Watkins voted with Labour on planning just weeks ahead of the Local Election then – his one vote allowing the Karis/Frank Gehry planning application to gain consent. He backed it. Labour put weak candidates into Brunswick & Adelaide and the 2 Lib Dems were returned in May 2007 to serve another term. But perhaps it was a coincidence and David Watkins truly believed Gehry’s tin can towers and the massive swamping of the seafront with hundreds and hundreds of flats at King Alfred was A. Good. Idea. I have never forgiven him.

    Independents can split votes which is a kind of tactical move if they choose a ward wisely in order to help particular candidates. When I & Brian Ralfe stood in Westbourne in 2003 for the Lib Dems – then a tight marginal – I split the Labour vote in half and the Conservative vote remained exactly as before and they won. I freaked out the Lib Dems by getting a very obviously green election flyer printed for myself, even coloured green….coded message there, a foot in each camp.

    Parties manage close marginals danger by cutting deals with each other. There was considerable rage in Labour ranks in 2003 – seething rage, because they thought they had a deal with the Lib Dems that no candidate would stand there. Got that shouted at me by a former Labour Councillor. Without myself and Brian Ralfe, Labour would have had a much stronger hand.

    This time former Labour Councillor Simon Battle who did not stand again in Goldsmid in 2007 will be standing for Labour in Westbourne. He poses a real threat to Denise Cobb in my view. Watch that space!

    Party politics is a filthy, filthy, filthy – permafilthy – business and it is very hard to think of a way out of the mess of politicians with no special knowledge or capabilities being voted into positions of power that very, very few use well or wisely.

    If only residents took more interest in council meetings, looked at the webcam coverage at least (live or archived), so they had some idea of the worth of these people beyond the doorstep charm offensive…..votes really do need to be for individuals and not political parties. There is good and bad, saintly self-sacrifice serving alongside plain evil in every one of them.
