Labour cannot find candidates for Wokingham

It is extraordinary that Labour is only contesting six of the twelve Wokingham Council seats on offer in the May 6th Council election. Labour claims to be a national party, and is still the UK governing party. Local Labour campaigners say they are concerned about Wokingham’s problems. Why then do they not put up twelve candidates, so every Labour voter has someone they want to vote for? Doesn’t Labour really care about Wokingham at all?

    Actually, John, no they dont. Unless you're part of their client state they'll ignore your constituents (other than to raise their taxes of course) so they can spend their time elsewhere trying to con folk into voting for more bad government.
