Vote Loony – You Know It Makes Sense!

Close of nominations reveals the first Official Monster Raving Loony Party candidate has appeared in Rotherham! Omar Mehban is standing for them in Mahroof Hussain’s Ward, Boston Castle.

There has appeared also a rift in Holderness Ward Labour Party where the Official Labour Candidate, Christopher Robinson is opposed by the newly Independent (and Unofficial Monster Raving Loony Party Candidate) Hilda Jack, the sitting Councillor. She is refusing to lie down, after being dumped by Labour in a ‘palace coup’, organised by her long term ally Gerald Smith. See: Rotherham’s disgraceful parade gets ever longer!

The third surprise is Thomas Fenoughty who, despite having a solid majority, is not defending his Wales Ward seat?
