Is there a by-election coming?

Are we about to see a by-election in the borough? That's the question we've been asking ourselves here. According to an insider there is a whispering campaign going on against any of the former Labour councillors that lost seats or stood down in May. Our source has suggested that this is the modus operandi in smoothing the way for chosen candidates prior to selection interviews. Of course, if it's true then where could a by-election be?

Could this explain the recent, and somewhat mysterious, Labour campaigning in Charlton that we were mailed? Does this also explain why Kidbrooke and Hornfair councillor, Norman Adams is attending surgeries in Charlton as well as his own ward?

There really is nothing more enjoyable than wild speculation to liven up the day!

Campaigning? Charlton? No, somebody's winding you up.

There is the possibility that Janet Gillman may stand down to care for her husband former councillor Jim Gillman.

Janet is one of the few decent councillors and it would be a shame for her to be replaced by the likes of Norman Adams, whose longevity as a counillor seems entirely due to the fact that his name appears first on the voting slip.
