Self edifying election statements from parties in opposition have begun to arrive. The usual spin and publically hated by tradition Wansbeck Tories have hung their evidence of proof on statements made by a Councillor who failed to win a selection for the May 2017 County elections from her local branch as she hasn't worked hard enough for her Community over the last three and a half years.
The local branch has replaced her with someone they know will fulfill the correct criteria.
From our doorstep contacts the new candidate is well ahead of the field. Wansbeck Tories seem to be hanging their hats on the rantings of someone who doesn't know what's going on and is screaming sour grapes at every turn.
