I’m standing as an independent candidate. I should probably explain why I’m doing that.
At the council level I don’t believe that party politics should be involved. Councils should be working to get things done without being restricted by ideology. And yet all we see at the moment is squabbling between councillors because they’re in different political tribes.
I’m not connected to any political party. If I’m elected I don’t really care whether the people I’m working with are Lib Dems, Labour or even Tories. I’ll be voting for or against stuff based on whether the stuff I’m voting on is a good or a bad idea, not simply voting against stuff because it was proposed by a different political party.
That’s how we get stuff done. We can’t fix things unless we have an open mind and are prepared to work with people who have different opinions.
