|Will Marco Cereste still lead the Conservatives after today?|
YOU DECIDE. USE YOUR VOTE.
Still uncertain or just undecided how You will Vote in the Peterborough local elections TODAY? The last political party doorknocker has jumped back into his/her smart BMW possibly never to be seen again in our ward, possibly taking a candidate or two with them - won't be seeing much of them either in the future elected, or unelected!
So how can we help? If you didn't feel like paying an eyewatering £1:20p (they've put the price up again for the now Yorkshire Printed 'local' Weekly newspaper, with less 'local' produced editorial, fewer 'proper' journalists and where did the bevy of professional press photographers go? ( The price hike does however buy you a double dose of Stewart Jackson MP!) The PBROTRIB is here, and you can access and search all our stories over the last few years for free! For the Election just Enter the word VOTE (or any other search term) in the search box top left.
The PBROTRIB has employed comedy, satire, lampooned and given some form of stick to most if not all of our local Peterborough politicians. Its not really been done before in Peterborough, they've had for years a shockingly very easy ride. Some councillors have objected to the wider exposure. A few have been downright vicious in their efforts, lying through their teeth to shut us down (Cllr Turnip is by all accounts still at it... bless). But its all done in the hope that some of our elected representatives might actually wake up, and do the job they were originally elected for.
It would only take the CONSERVATIVES TO LOSE FOUR SEATS and not gain any, to see a significant seachange in Peterborough politics. So your one single vote (unless of course you've illegally harvested loads of postal and/or proxy votes, then police attending polling stations in our neighbourhoods and would welcome your company) wields a lot of unbridled power! SO use it!
It would we truly believe be the end of MARCO CERESTE dominated rollercoaster solar wrapped politics and 'robotic voting' decision making in this City. Consider that Marco Cereste has spent more time frantic door knocking and leaflet stuffing in Stanground Central in the last two weeks, than he probably has in the last two years, His German taxi, the black Marcomobile with the MC personalised (Standing for unfettered Mandate Cancelled) numberplate was parked outside The Carpenters Arms Wednesday evening. And Marco isn't even up for election, or drinks in the Carpenters Arms! Unless you know better?
You may consider that none of the local candidates can offer you anything, and there is no need to vote. That is so wrong and frankly plain stupid. Generations before us fought and many even gave their lives, so we can all vote today. If you don't cast your vote today, then you have no grounds to complain at what is likely to happen in this City over the next year. We need a turnout of at least 60% not the usual pathetic 30+ %.
If we tell you that an even tougher financial period before next years General Election is planned (excepting of course ring fenced vanity projects!?) for Peterborough, no matter who gets in and controls the council, then consider from the list of your possible candidates who on the list has a real chance of changing the direction of this council and/or will really work hard for you and your ward not just the Party...
Its called tactical voting, and your votes collectively can play a vital part. How dynamic are your local candidates, or are they just content to put in an appearance and trouser the generous expenses? Are they just 'paper candidates?' put in by political parties to make up the overall national numbers, but have no chance of being elected.
Who are the obvious 'beyond their sell by dates' candidates? Weed them all out, then VOTE! It really is as simple as that.....but above all it is YOUR VOTE , you cast it in secret and you don't need to tell or show anyone (not even your family) how you voted. And that is Official.
Finally, today May 22nd 2014 is important in another way. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MORAG IRVING!
