  1. All the best to you Andy, you got my vote for sure. Good luck with the election and ride safe.

  2. I am very conflicted. I would love Labour to win the general election but don’t think Labour can win locally and really don’t want Conservatives here. I like Tessa Munt as a person and visited her for advice a couple of times when she was our MP. Can you persuade me that my vote for Labour matters here?
