A couple of days ago we posted on the Tories efforts to data harvest opinion as a pre-cursor to the Milford By-Election due on 13 February. The dubious alliance of Peter Martin & Carmel Oates sent out a questionnaire to residents seeking ??? Votes ???
Can’t have been for any other reason, because the Tories have repeatedly shown they don’t give a damn about Milford – judging by the planning applications recently approved. Will they face censorship for disobeying Electoral Commission rules?
So, who is genuinely interested in representing the views of Milford People rather than increasing the Tory Party’s hold on Waverley Towers?
In one corner we have : Parish Councillor Maxine Gale standing as an Independent. It’s called doing the decent thing in Milford.
In another we have another independent Rosaleen Egan, who has had more than her fair share of quarrels with ‘Your Waverley’ over the years. Mrs Egan is canvassing with her outrageously cute campaign manager. She says, “any little advantage is fair in love, war and politics.”
We should add, that we have heard nothing from either the Handheld -based Tory Office or Ms Oates or Cllr Peter Martin, despite being happy to hear what she intends to do for MILFORD and Witley?
