2007 Local Election Polling Stations With 4 weeks to go until the May 2007 Local Elections, Bristol Indymedia rounds up recent posts to the newswire. Bristol Indymedia Election Guidelines. The Investigator writes: One of the ex-Bristolian editors has started a website to expose corruption in the Tory party. Sarah CO writes: John Kiely the LIb Dem councillor for Easton is destroying our elderly care services. He is responsible for pushing through a deal to privatise home care services which will inevitably lead to a decrease in working conditions for the home carers and a decrease in quality of service for the clients. (eg.just as it has in public transport, refuse collection etc.) This leaves some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in our society at risk. The Bristol Blogger writes: Meet Steve Comer ... He’s a Liberal Democrat and a Bristol City Councillor. He’s quite influential in Bristol because he’s an Executive Member and sits on the Cabinet that takes decisions about the city. Steve is a very busy man as he also has another job sitting on the National Executive of the PCS (Public and Commercial Services Union). This is the civil serviçe union dominated by the far left that has a reputation for militancy and robustly taking on New Labour over public service cuts, privatisation, pensions and the growth of fat cat consultants in the public sector.
