Sandwell: We leaflet street where Labour councillor lives (it's true!)

For the last two days, activists have been out leafleting in Sandwell, West Midlands, where Britain First's Paul Rudge will stand for council election in May.

We covered a lot of ground, including Britain's most infamously named street (below), home to a prominent Labour councillor ('It's true!', says Paul).

Leafleters received much positive feedback from local residents.

 

Many voters in the area regard their local councillors as useless, and their opinions of national Labour and Conservative politicians are, frankly, unrepeatable!

Thursday: after refuelling on Black Country chips (yes, they really are orange!?) we visited the Shell Corner monument in nearby Halesowen.

In memory of the men who gave their lives in the First World War, it's a disused artillery shell painted by local artist Cliff Collins with poppies and images from the trenches.

Friday: residents on one estate told us of problems with drugs, prostitution and anti-social behaviour, of how one house had become a base for criminality, and how the authorities had largely failed to address residents' concerns.

Paul pledged that, if elected, he would honour the commitment on his election leaflet and do his utmost to clean up criminal troublespots like these.
