I HAVE received a leaflet from the Liberal Democrats stating that their candidate was stepping down from the election in The Hemingfords on May 1, the main reason being Mrs Maxine Hay, who is standing as an Independent.

For what exactly? You clearly sympathise with Mrs Hay, and rightly so, because of her reasons for standing here against Ian Bates. Maybe Mr Richard Oliver thinks that by standing down he will be passing on his votes to an Independent.

When I've spoken to various councillors on various issues, they usually agree with me, only to add that nothing can or will be done. If that's the case, why stand at all if they cannot deliver in the first place?
