Right : today is April 4th; and the mid-day deadline has passed.
So just exactly who has put themselves forward for election to Glastonbury Town Council and Mendip District Council ?
The information is known; for some unknown bureaucratic reason Mendip DC has control of both elections; and for further unknown reasons, they are not going to publish this information for a further 48 hours. (Mid-day Wednesday.)
They have the lists of names already (have probably had them for several days, in fact) — so what is preventing them from publishing them immediately on their website ?
Could it be that the ruling Tory clique with access to this information wants a 48-hour lead over anyone else in order to prepare their campaign response ?
Nah. Surely not.
