voters and candidates - by-election ballot box - candidates

Dear Editor,
There are many positives from our General Election campaign.

At our first attempt to stand for Parliament we were able to beat two long-established national parties.

It also enabled us to post a A3 leaflet, via Royal Mail, to every home in the Crewe and Nantwich Constituency. All 54,400 of them!

This was a brilliant opportunity to get our message and our priorities and policies to the whole of Crewe and Nantwich and to attract new supporters and helpers and potential candidates for future elections.

Also, the election allowed us to broaden our base from just Crewe and to become #CreweAndNantwichFirst.

This means that now, when council elections and by-elections occur in Nantwich and the surrounding villages, we can put up candidates as well as in Crewe.

So altogether, there are a large number of positives that have resulted from our first attempt at standing in a General Election.

I would like to thank all those who voted for us and all those who helped in the campaign and contributed towards the cost.

Yours faithfully,

Cllr Brian Silvester
Putting Crewe and Nantwich First

    what this another leaflet,?? I only got 2 and this party was not one of them

  2. Jeanne Dow says:

    He actually got 0.07% of the votes cast.

    The leaflet was shockingly designed. If it was done by a professional graphic designer, he should demand a refund.

  3. Cynical Syd says:

    Think you might need a reality check Brian…

    78,423 registered voters of which you received a mere 588 votes = 0.7% of all potential voters supported you.

    Bragging about beating “two long established national parties”… one of which was the Monster Raving Looney Party, which your party received only 388 more votes!

    PS, thanks for the leaflet, made a good fire lighter!

  4. And the spin misses you lost your deposit, finished 5, had leaflets printed outside of Crewe and Nantwich and we’re at the same level as the Monster Raving Loony party…. Congratulations on losing!
