This was slated to be the UKs first social media election, but then they also said that in 2010. Perhaps it has happened elsewhere in the country but there are few signs that Slough or Windsor have been dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century. UKIP, however, has won the social media election in Slough, for what it has been, by a clear lead.
UKIP may have only taken 16% of the vote in Slough in last week’s Local Election, but it has taken a staggering 32% of the vote for the European Parliament.
Dexter Smith and Avtar Kaur Cheema were elected as ward councillors yesterday in a Local Election result that left the political colours unchanged in Colnbrook.
Colnbrook goes to the polls this morning with both seats on Slough Borough Council up for grabs. But in a surprisingly low profile campaign have the candidates managed to get their message across, and who will get your vote?
Finally some of Colnbrook’s candidates with the forthcoming election have announced actual policies for Colnbrook! Independent candidates Rakesh Pabbi and Aarti Joshi have revealed initial details of their manifesto.
The starting pistol has been fired in the contest for Colnbrook’s two posts on Slough Borough Council – but despite the unusually high number of candidates none have revealed any actionable policies for the village.
Colnbrook’s Cllr Dexter Smith is leading local Tories’ campaign to have Slough Borough Council’s programme of roadworks shut down immediately – and reassessed by councillors.
