Today UKIP has begun its campaign for the forthcoming by-elections in both Brinsworth and Catcliffe and Dinnington. Boy was it cold, but the team was out there, and will be for the next two weekends both leafleting and speaking to people in the wards So if you have any questions please stop and ask us, we are only too pleased to answer, and help where ever we can.
We have two great candidates, both dedicated to the cause of local service.
Our Dinnington candidate, Lee Hunter, already has experience as a councillor and cannot wait to get back, the other Steve Webster is full of enthusiasm for the job, he is up to speed on all issues local and national and will prove to be great asset for the ward.
I cannot end this short update without reference to the tweet from Mr Healey (see below) today who suggested Ian Finnie was not up to the job. Ian resigned due to ill health and out of his sense of duty not to take public money when he was unable to fulfil his role and he was supported by the party. Where as Mr Roddison was forced to resign due to sexual impropriety, and even then did not go willingly, he had to be forced to resign. Who will be next?
Finally worth pointing out that the Lib Dems and Green party candidates have manifestos full of what they say they will do, but no idea of how they will do it. Put quite simply they do not have a clue.
