Soham carnival - where were the by election candidates?
There are six candidates for the Soham South District Council by-election on June 19.
Two of them are from away, though they ‘represent’ political parties that have some local support.
The remaining four, including myself, an Independent, live in Soham.
We had the Soham Carnival and it was a glorious occasion with huge crowds in attendance.
I was at the carnival for much of the day and I saw just one other of the candidates.
I am amazed that the others couldn’t or wouldn’t attend this major Soham event.
I ask myself do the others care?
