OUT IN THE FIELD: Uh oh, someone’s in big trouble
Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. I bet somebody at the Essex-based printing firm which managed to have a delivery van stolen containing thousands of blank ballot papers, which were destined for Eastbourne in time for Thursday’s elections, is in hot water. Fortunately though new ones are being reprinted on different colour paper and will be at the Town Hall in good time for next week. Needless to say our intrepid team will be at the parliamentary count until the small hours of Friday morning when the MP will be announced and again on Saturday when 27 councillors on Eastbourne Borough Council will be named. You can follow all the news and results as they come in at www.eastbourneherald.co.uk and on Facebook Eastbourne Herald and Gazette.

LETTER: No to tactical voting
Someone everywhere knows somebody who has been adversely affected by policies that the Lib Dems and the Tories introduced. ‘Tactical’ voters locally, who in 2010 voted for Stephen Lloyd in order to stop the Tories controlling Eastbourne, must be surely be questioning their decision. They have since seen his party, in partnership with the Tories, introduce some very toxic policies such as the Health and Social Care Bill and the Bedroom Tax. Eastbourne, like the rest of the country, is experiencing a rise in the working poor, food bank users, homeless people and cuts to public services.
