    You haven’t listed your UKIP candidates. Blatant bigotry

    • Frank le Duc Reply

      Maggie, this list does now include the 11 UKIP candidates but we were waiting to hear from the party who they were fielding. This took a little longer than I had hoped. Sorry about that.

      two Years ago I sent Caroline Lucas 2emails asking for her assistance in a crime that was being ignored by Brighton police , no surprise there as it would have meant leaving their nice air conditioned office but the crime was serious but Caroline Lucas who is boasting of putting more police on the streets, totally ignored my emails, not even a response so how she can keep a straight face whilst being so concerned about crime makes me sick, she couldn’t care less about crime and I still have the emails to prove it.

      Bigotry? That’s rich coming from someone wanting UKIP candidates

  2. Mrs Pauline Winyard Reply

    Just tell us what we must vote that’s how it works now isn’t it

  3. Alan Harper Reply

    If we don’t get the candidate we want can we have another vote so we can? If it’s good enough for the rest of the UK it must be ok for this sleepy backwater?

      Umm, actually, yes; you get to vote every 4 years. lol

    LibLabCon are quite rightly going to be hammered. They should not even bother getting out of bed.
