Candidates a mystery

I have lived in the Ilkeston East area for more than 35 years and I have a postal vote because of my job and being away from home all week.

Now I am semi-retired and I expected to be visited by at least one of the prospective candidates for the Derbyshire County Council elections on Thursday last week.

The only one I might have recognised is Glennice Birkin who was pointed out to me on Bath Street some years ago.

The rest were simply names on a sheet of paper which could have been a figment of someone’s imagination as far as I know.

Is this the way to run an election? I don’t think so.

If a private company was run in this way it would soon go bust.

Or is that the method behind this charade? Regards from thoroughly disgusted.
