Labour’s problem for 2012 – time to wield the knife?

This is the time of year that all local politicians dread, at least those involved in selection or reselection battles for next years May council elections, that is!

I bring you the full list of sitting labour councillors who’s term of office expires next May:

Anston and Woodsetts Ward: Darren Jason Louis HughesCon Lab – 1704 (520)
Boston Castle Ward: Mahroof Hussain – Lab 1545 (641)
Brinsworth and Catcliffe Ward:
Dinnington Ward: Simon Tweed – Lab 979 (117)
Hellaby Ward:
Holderness Ward: Hilda Landells Jack – Lab 1311 (515)

Rother Vale Ward: Jeb Nightingale – Lab 1161 (392)

They aren’t a pretty bunch are they? If Labour intends to field more than just a mere few of these miserable specimens as their candidates again, the people of Rotherham should rightly conclude that the local labour party is taking them for fools!
