News Flash. The Independent Candidate John Ireland has been caught out tonight. At a Public Meeting of Anston Electors, he did not deny that he spoke to a Parish Councillor in the Pub and admitted that he was standing to “split the vote”. He was asked who he was trying “to Split” but said no one had asked him to do it. he then went on to say he was standing because he was the only one who lives in Anston. Technically he is correct, but the UKIP Candidate Bernard Frogett, was born in Anston, and lives in woodsetts, which just happens to be part of the “Anston and Woodsetts Ward”.
The Public have been asking why would a 77 year old man, who has presided over a totally failing Parish Council, for the last two years, Stand for Election at RMBC, That very same RMBC Council has threatened to disband the Parish Council, the one he has been running on behalf of the Labour Party. (one failing Council disbanding another failing Council, you could not make it up)
Please Members of the Public don’t waste a good vote on this man.
Labour are the experts of the dirty tricks campaign but they can’t fool the people now they have realised they gave been betrayed by them for years
This is the standard labour “sorry we missed you” calling card. It gives Kevin Barron’s contact details (nothing for the Borough candidate). We had “same”one for Barron/Pitchley yesterday in Aughton.
Incidentally, Robert Taylor was recently co-opted (by the Labour majority) on to the Aston-cum-Aughton Parish Council. He has only been on for a few months (the resignation of his predecessor who had moved out of the parish over two years ago & only attended very infrequently resigned too late for there to be a bye-election!! Surprise, surprise), so difficult to assess how effective he might be. He was just greeted (and congratulated) by his Labour colleagues at his first PC meeting. He did not introduce himself to the public or the rest of the PC, and when co-opted there was no indication as to who he was or his credentials…typical Labour shoe-in.

Mr Thornton’s crass comments have once again shown that he is unfit to be a Parish Councillor and is an affront to democracy
