We are a week away from the local elections, and campaigning is in full swing. All parties are throwing themselves at this, in the knowledge that up for grabs is control of the council itself. As I have said many times before, there is a high likelihood that the Tories will lose their hold on the council.
In fact, after seeing the reception that Roger Hadley received at the Shoebury hustings on Monday night, I wouldn’t be surprised if the count on Friday sees a cull of Tory councillors.
My Conservative opponent in West Shoebury is particularly vulnerable. So I have to ask, where on earth is Tony Cox?
