NOTE THE EARLIER ANNOUNCEMENT GOT THE DATE WRONG – SATURDAY IS THE 4th!!
We’re breaking through into national media: East Devon is the ‘fun one’ in the local elections, where the ‘battle is largely between Conservatives and independents’, while ‘in the parliamentary seat Claire Wright, an independent, has a fighting chance of winning ahead of the Conservatives’.
The New Statesman’s Stephen Bush writes: ‘Ooh, there’s a lot going on here. The fun one is East Devon, where in the parliamentary seat Claire Wright, an independent, has a fighting chance of winning ahead of the Conservatives. The local battle is largely between Conservatives and independents, so keep an eye on that.’

@CllrIanThomas, leader of East Devon District Council, has left the Conservative Party, which is falling apart locally as well as nationally. There is a historic opportunity next Thursday to end 45 years of one-party rule in East Devon.
Councillor Ian Thomas, Conservative leader of East Devon District Council, has announced that he has left the Conservative Party, citing ‘national issues’.
It is now clear that the Conservatives are falling apart locally as well as nationally. This shows that there is a historic opportunity to end 45 years of one-party rule in East Devon in next Thursday’s elections. Everyone should vote for Independent candidates who have the best chance of ousting the Tories in most cases.
There is real chance that East Devon Alliance and their fellow-Independents could have the chance to head an alternative administration in a week’s time. Over now to the voters – turn out on Thursday and give us the chance.
East Devon postal voting instructions don’t tell you what to put in which envelope – I explain it here
This is what you should do – but the instructions don’t say it, as they usually do:
- You should put the completed ballot paper in Envelope A, and seal it.
- Then put the completed Postal voting statement together with Envelope A into Envelope B, with the EDDC address showing in the window, seal and return.
Paul Arnott is standing again for the Coly Valley, where he came within 200 votes of beating the Conservatives in 2015. Paul will be campaigning hard in Colyton, Colyford, Southleigh, Northleigh, Farway, Offwell and Wilmington up to voting on May 2nd. Email me firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to help by putting up a poster or leafleting.
