Although the election bill is yet to pass through the House of Lords, it is widely expected to do so and all eyes are now beginning to turn towards the upcoming campaign.

Parliament will dissolve next week, triggering a relatively short five-week election campaign.

  1. Come on vote for what we voted for to leave the EU.Reece Wilkes is the only candidate who will do that.Karen Lee lied to the people when she said that she would honour the Referendum result.

  2. A vote for the conservatives is a vote for the Boris deal which is not leaving the EU.Its the same as Mays treacherous deal.vote BP
