Yesterday we had a look at how the political parties are preparing for the Local Elections 2011. With all of this talk of Big Society we imagined an intense focus on this opportunity to represent local concerns and stand up for our communities. After all that is the purpose of politics. You can imagine how surprised we were, therefore, that not one of the high profile parties' had any mention of the fast approaching local elections on their homepage.
Approximately 45 million people will have the opportunity to go to the polls on Thursday 5th May.
If political parties aren't even interested in local politics maybe people need to look at their alternatives. Independent candidates are the only alternative to party politics. Find your local candidate today.
