  1. 59 rejected ballot papers all saying” non of the above!” what a joke!

  2. Bidston and St. James and Seacombe have both been Labour ward a long, long time.

    Although where I live in Bidston and St. James there were 6 candidates.

    Assuming that if there were only 2 candidates (as in Seacombe) and that the people who voted for the other 4 candidates didn’t vote, that’s 569 people in Bidston & St. James who voted (but not for Conservative or Labour) that had they lived in Seacombe would not have the choice of their chosen candidate or party on the ballot paper.

    I realise first past the post leads to a two party system but when I vote I expect to see more than just Conservative or Labour on the ballot paper!
