East Sussex County Council stars in Private Eye's Rotten Boroughs column

Private Eye shone the spotlight on East Sussex County Council Leader Keith Glazier's huge expense claim - and the 37% increase in his leader's allowance.

The Rotten Boroughs column is well known for highlighting greed and dubious behaviour in local councils, and this time they found easy pickings in Mr Glazier's claim for £3,327 for car expenses - plus £446 in fares and subsistence - on top of his allowance of £36,054 allowance. 

This, of course, comes at a time when Cllr Glazier is pushing through £112m in cuts, with 200 jobs to be lost.

It's interesting to note which party the councillors claiming the highest allowances belong to. Any guesses? Yes, it's the party of austerity, the Conservative Party. They really are all in it together.

Voting Green and 'tactical' voting in Wealden

Voting LibDem or Labour won’t unseat Nus Ghani, no matter what they say.

Voting Green sends a strong message to the new government: Green voters demand significant change on climate and social justice.

Voting Green is a clear vote for remaining in Europe.

We encourage everyone to vote for the party that best represents their values. 

Why didn't the Greens stand down in Wealden?

A Unite to Remain candidate is only standing in constituencies where a Remain candidate has a good chance of beating a Leave candidate.  

The Unite to Remain strategy gives the Green Party significantly more chance of electing more Green MPs. 

In Wealden, the combined votes of all opposition parties won’t unseat Nus Ghani. 

Wealden Green Party is a successful party. We have increased our share of the vote in most recent elections and plan to do so again.
