28 days to the electionLast Monday was a memorable day for me when I found out who I would be contesting the Rainhill seat with at the forthcoming elections on May 4th. Both the Tories and the Lib Dems have candidates but I don't know them personally. There are no other nominations but unfortunately a British Nationalist Party candidate is fighting Town Centre ward, a party whose ideals are detested by myself and fellow councillors Joe DeAsha and Mike Doyle.
Labour officially launched its Election campaign in London on Wednesday and it was extensively covered by BBC 24hr News. Ian McCartney, the Party Chairman made the introductionary speech and admitted he was a Wigan Warriors supporter, adding that the Leader of their great rivals, St Helens, Marie Rimmer was later going to brief everyone how a top Labour controlled council, St Helens, was leading the country in efficiency and deliverance.
