It’s a beautiful day, the sun is shining and there are 3 UKIP candidates for you to vote for in Shifnal, Cosford and Albrighton.
The Conservatives have been in control of Shropshire Council for far too long and have shown an unhealthy disregard for democracy.
Abolishing the district councils has failed to deliver the savings it promised as expected. Shropshire residents knew that it wouldn’t which is why they overwhelmingly rejected it in referenda but councillors ignored their wishes and did it anyway. They’ve ignored voters’ wishes on car parking charges and school closures. They’ve wasted money on consultants and councillors’ iPads and broken the law trying to get more money out of elderly and vulnerable people to pay for their care homes.
The 51 Conservatives, 14 Lib Dems, 7 Labour and 2 independent councillors have treated Shropshire residents with contempt – this is your opportunity to vote for change.
