Nominations extra

Posted by davidburbage on April 5, 2007

If this was a Borough Press Release it would be titled “Nominations Eggs-tra” because it’s Easter. Moving swiftly on.

The Libdem Leader is – to use the well-worn political phrase – “chicken-running” from Clewer East to Castle Without.

The Libdems are losing former Libdem Leader Jeremy Hyde, and Peter Herlinger, and Mike Bruton. On our side Peter Spooner is standing down.

Also effectively quitting by putting their names up in rather longshot areas are

– Margaret Hyde, shifts from Boyn Hill to Oldfield (although they might argue about that interpretation

– Bryan Hedley who is putting his name up in Datchet

– Martin Pritchett who is putting his name up in Wraysbury

– Tony Langdown who is putting his name up in Oldfield, another former Leader.

In Bray it’s David Burbage, Leo Walters and Barry Thompson faced with an interesting trio – Peter Janikoun, Mike Singh and Nick Bagri .

Mr Bagri is a likeable and charming fellow – really – who currently represents the Oak Tree ward as an Independent Mansfield Community Councillor on Mansfield District Council but has recently moved down to Oakley Green. He was, as I understand it, a member of both the Conservative Party and the LibDems simultaneously for a while, and told us that he did want to run for the Council, under someone’s flag.

“Flags of conveniance” are common amongst international shipping, but less common in local politics. Well, not any more!

 There are 4 BNP candidates across the Borough – in Clewer North, predictably, they are standing and have 2 candidates, and one in Cox Green and one in Pinkneys Green.
