Louise Gallavin is our (Candidate) candidate.

She stood for us last year securing our best result in the ward since 1992. 

Louise is 25 (our youngest candidate this year) and a Sales & Marketing resident.  She is also a former resident of both Gorse Hill & Pinehurst so knows the area well.

Normally this is the ward with the most candidates, however it would appear that there is only the 3 traditional parties.

We had expected a UKIP candidate so we are just checking that they haven't been missed off the initial list.

No BNP this time after they targeted this ward the last two times.

Sales and Marketing is the strange land where all politicians come from.

They dress well, do not gesticulate too overtly, and are fluent in a language we know as bollocks.

They can recite party dogma  for several minutes entirely from memory and the curious thing is that when you attempt to summarise you realise they have said exactly nothing. Bit like a verbal prawn cracker in the satisfaction ratings.

Can't wait til one turns up on my doorstep.

Sales and Marketing will shortly be applying for eu membership, their prime export is unsubstantiated promises of which there is currently, a glut.
Sometimes I think you have to march right in and demand your rights, even if you don’t know what your rights are, or who the person is you’re talking to. Then, on the way out, slam the door.
