Local Independents are backing the LibDem Candidate. Mr ‘ I’m a Conservative really’ Woodley has signed Cllr Longley’s Parliamentary nomination papers as has Cllr Assenheim. Seaside news first raised this back in February as a distinct possibility but this proves what we have always said – but the Independents have always denied – that there is a coalition plan between the Independents and Lib Dem / Lab to try and take control of Southend Council.
So what does this mean-
- This proves if Southend people vote Independent, they will actually get Lib Dem / Lab
- This proves Independents are anything but independent
- The only way to maintain a Better Southend is to vote Conservative on May
