Rochester and Strood - a local comparison

The last time the Hedge Town Council Wildern ward was up for election, even the unsuccessful Lib Dem candidate got more votes than the Lib Dems did in the entire Rochester and Strood constituency at the recent parliamentary by election.

On Thursday the Lib Dem candidate had 349 votes. Here is a reminder of the Wildern result from 2011:

  1. The result above just goes to show 'You reap what you sow'. The Electorate are not stupid and should not be treated with contempt. If a pledge is made, it should be adhered to. The Lib Dems have proved themselves feckless liars.
