This task has been made even more challenging by the local Tories being seen to waste millions of pounds on loans that won’t be repaid, pontoons that aren’t used and a statue which brings no discernible benefit to the lives of local residents.

That and the failure of his government to secure a Brexit deal have left local people angry and left ordinary Labour Party members uncertain about how to respond. Those candidates we did secure were committed, determined and resolute in their aim to be the very best councillor they could be.
