Looks like he has forgotten to include "Standish" in his address.......shouldnt the good folk of Bryn know exactly where he lives?

Was he the one who kept banging on about councillors not living on their own patch?

I believe he did SD, on a now defunct Facebook page.

To be fair, Broady, it’s become a sticky thread and I often miss those as well.

Jo Anne,
Only today and I never read them. I remember from last week. I don’t know why but I saw the name and thought “ car expenses”

Jo anne, they are not "the borough's" councillors.

Sorry Tonker, I worded that badly. Would it have been better to say ‘all the councillors for the wards within Wigan Borough’?

The people of Bryn get what they deserve with only 15% turnout

Gareth got a respectable 353 votes though, Stardelta, only 76 less than the candidate that was elected.

He took about 25% of the total vote.

No prizes for third place.

So 25% of 15%? That means 3.75 voters per 100 in the ward voted for him. Don’t think that will have Boris/ Kier missing any sleep.
