Key party insiders are reporting a shock blow to the Peterborough Election Tories as Cllr Brian Rush (Con, Stanground Central) is hanging up his trade mark red jumper, and retiring as a councillor for the Conservatives in the Stanground Central ward, although he has another year to run when all councillors will have to go through the process again as wards are redrawn, merged and scrapped due to Boundary Commission changes but Brian is bailing out early, say insiders.
Clearly if the mounting rumours are true, it puts the Stanground Conservatives in a difficult position, too late to run in new candidates through the Conservatives charm school, (Cllr. Turnip missed that one) but if the official announcement of Brians rushed departure can be fudged to say the end of April, other parties won't be turning their full attention and resources on the ward battle.
A flurry of mismanaged photocalls -all on top of each other - mainly of the Dear Leader wearing a virgin white safety helmet and expensively sharp suited, in some pictures Brian looking lost wearing a black jumper, clearly not too happy, with the way things are moving.
BODY LANGUAGE, BRIAN!
Reckless spending and political concentration on Cardea, at the expense of Stangound resources, new Cardea dressing rooms for the Park Farm Pumas childrens football teams adds to the council debt mountain. Stanground Library soon to be closing, unless volunteers can be found, has greatly angered Stanground residents and Cllr Cerestes fanatical addiction to all things solar might just add up to another eclipse, not partial but total and Cllr Cereste at the centre of it!
