With the recent news of a stool pigeon in the Fellgate and Hedworth Ward, information has come to the fore that all may not be well in Primrose Ward. Rumour has it that the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats will not even field a candidate in May’s election. If correct, the Ward will be faced with a two horse race between the BNP and Labour. With dissatisfaction in the way Labour have managed the Borough, there is a good chance that the BNP will sneak in on either a low turn out, the “dissatisfied” vote or a combination of both.
Hopefully, somebody will come forward who is able to offer the Ward a credible alternative. If not, we may be faced with our first elected BNP councillor.
