Residents now have a real chance this year to say there is "There is no place for national political rivalries in my Council this year". The two main Parties are in disarray, sackings and resignations within the Conservative group and a lack of leadership and a candidate in place for the national elections. Harlow and it's residents deserve better, the bun fight in the Council chamber must stop. Nicholas Taylor, Leader of the Harlow Alliance Party.

The Conservatives have been in far to long and there has to be change as nothing is the same in this World like before! The town is in a very sad state with homeless, Litter, empty shops, Crime, Policing, environment including Roads, cycle paths, playing areas and its as if no one gives a monkey anymore! It really is in a sorry state even the buses are so dated that no one else wants them as they are so polluting yet good old Harlow will take them and use them in our broken streets and on our broken roads! When I walk my dogs I come across broke grey metal posts and the lower half is left sticking out of the ground all rusty waiting for some person or animal to seriously hurt themselves! We have a car transporter that has been parked up on our road for 11 months and not moved at all yet it has been reported and the reply is its taxed and MOT is current so im just waiting to see if MOT gets renewed as it clearly is rotten! Lets see change not just a shuffle of the political map!

In my earlier post I should of course made it clear that Labour do not have a candidate in place for the General Election.

Two ex-UKIP in Mark Hall and Sumners and two Liberals in Mark Hall and Bush Fair. It's nice to know that none of them have a chance of being elected, but it gives the punters an opportunity to waste a vote to make a point to the mainstream parties, a bit like the service Screaming Lord Sutch provided for many years.

What's up Forman, scared your bad behaviour will be exposed again eh? If you're on the ballot paper, you have a chance! Maybe you should try it sometime instead of carping from the sidelines and peddling cobblers as you've done for over ten years!!

David, all across the Country voters are turning their backs on the two main political parties. It is certainly not a wasted vote to vote for an alternative, nothing will change unless people vote for change. A number of councils are now run by local parties and the same thing can happen in Harlow. The Harlow Alliance Party will be launching their campaign in a few days time. Nicholas Taylor, Leader of the Harlow Alliance Party.

It is saddening, as well as deeply frustrating, that the to and fro of Westminster politics stalls the development of the town, that the local council makes tons of promises, whichever colour is in ascendency, and residents of the town just see the continued decline of the town, from failed businesses due to preclusive Business Rates, to potholes, which are 'fixed' temporarily because the Council chooses this rather than finance a proper 'fix' to this problem. If you watch what is going on in other places can we expect the 'politicians' to propose and augment without referral to the electorate, a hybrid of the ULEZ and the Oxford 15 minute city scheme in Harlow? Green issues are extremely important, but so is a sense of reality. Which political faction are actually going to use the funds acquired from Central Government, and local businesses and residents, to actually do what the people of Harlow actually want? Who will actually consult with the People to get what they want and need, instead of importing more people into the town to attempt to 'thin-out' long-term residents aspirations for the town?
