Hanover ward here in Brighton is electing a new councillor tomorrow. The by-election was called because one of the sitting Green Party councillors has decided to move away from the town. I keep thinking I might offer to do some ‘knocking up’ for Labour. The problem being many folk simply won’t bother coming out of their houses to vote. And if the bit of graffiti I saw on the Level (a park at the bottom of Hanover) is anything to go by, very few will vote tomorrow.
If they don’t understand that the council IS the people there is little hope.
