The local elections can be a confusing time, and with John Randall on the way out, and Boris on the way in, Uxbridge & South Ruislip is up for grabs. We’ve studied the manifestos of the “big four”, so you don’t have to, and we’ve boiled down the carcasses until just a rich stock remains. Heathrow seems to be the topic on which this election will be won or lost, so we’ve focussed our investigations on that.
The riders and runners:
Boris “Show Us Your” Johnson
He’s the man everyone’s talking about. Big Bojo, The Big Guy, London Mayor – Boris Johnson. One man’s lovable buffoon, another man’s scheming Tory despot. Patiently waiting for David Cameron to stand at the top of a flight of stairs with two bags of heavy shopping so he can give him a little shove in the back.
Chris “Endless” Summers
Labour haven’t had the easiest of rides in Uxbridge in recent years, but Chris’s plans to turn Heathrow airport into Europe’s biggest water park has really captured the imagination.
The Liberal Democrats are going to have an uphill battle in Uxbridge (and S***h R*****p), but Mike Cox can rise to any occasion. Standing tall for the gentle townsfolk.
Jack “Buttered Muffin” Duffin
Can Jack Duffin ride the wave of UKIP’s success and send political shockwaves™ through Uxbridge & S***h R*****p?
