Thurrock Independents Commits To Better Politics For All

THURROCK Independents are laying down the gauntlet to the Tories and Labour Party. However this is a gauntlet that represents respect, debate, and consensus building for the sake of Thurrock. A new, kinder politics if you like. says the new group.

Thurrock Independents Group Leader, Cllr Graham Snell said: “Thurrock Independents hope that the Conservatives and Labour share our rejection the old politics of pettiness, confrontation and conflict. The newly formed Thurrock Independents will bring upbeat, optimistic and positive politics to Thurrock. We will concerntrate upon expressing our concerns about the problems this community faces and offer the solutions we believe will be successful.

“A basic understanding of the electoral balance in Thurrock tells us that the chance of one single party having an overall majority in May 2018 is incredibly remote. After the dust is settled, we will respect, debate and attempt to reach a consensus with both Labour and the Tories for the sake of the residents of Thurrock. The people of Thurrock must always come before bitter political rivalry.

“Recent elections have seen some real low points in the conduct from all parties. However last year’s general election demonstrated significant improvements. Let all involved commit to building upon this improvement. Let this election be about ideas and policies not badges and personalities.

“Thurrock independents hope that Labour and the Tories can both publicly commit to making this a local election about ideas and policies not personal attacks; debate not scare tactics. The Thurrock Independents are proud to publicly make this commitment.

“Let us make the local elections of 2018 a benchmark for how local politics can be conducted. Let all sides commit to a promise of working together after the elections in a responsible way. Conduct that prioritises the needs of Thurrock not narrow party interests. Let us make sure that we always put people first, politics second.”

  1. I’m all for better politics for all Mr Snell, but please clarify to us all this Independent/UKIP fiasco.

  2. Thurrock Independents Commits To Better Politics For All

    THURROCK UKIP Independents, a new kinder politics, is not the UKIP way regardless of whatever you call yourselves now. We will respect, debate and attempt to reach a consensus
    what happened to we will be running Thurrock Council in 2018. The people of Thurrock must come before bitter political rivalry, I suggest you tell that to the Army veterans
    you refused an application for, a few months back where did they come on your list of kinder politics, the answer last.
    Recent elections have seen some real low points in the conduct from all parties, but outfront and in the lead as usual Thurrock UKIP Independents. An example being
    swearing at residents in the public gallery at a council meeting and refusing to apologize, not the kind of behavior anybody wants to see from a local politician and great PR
    Let us make sure that we always put people first, politics second.” Just like your demonstrating now with Tim Aker UKIP and he’s 4 assistance that work for not an independent MEP but, of course a UKIP MEP
    that’s not what I call putting people first, politics second. To me that sounds like plain and simple greed.UKIP are clearly a dying party, all you have done is put yourselves on life-support for a few more months how sad
    what makes me angry is the idea that you think the people Thurrock especially the ones that voted for you, that you clearly have no respect for. And you think are stupid enough to believe, that you are Independents
    I have yet to see any real comments on why you decided to quit UKIP, but then again it would be political suicide stating that you belong to a party you now detest, I would like to see you defend that in much more detail
    if you truly believe, you have any future at Thurrock Council I would suggest, you all step down and have local by-elections, this will prove that you are indeed putting people first and politics second

  3. A new, kinder politics if you like. says the new group

    A new brand of politics that lasted less than 24 hours

    I have just been informed that UKIPs Councillor Wheeler has been expelled from the newly formed UKIP independent group at Thurrock for verbal abuse
    directed at the Labour leader Oliver Gerrish, apparently words were exchanged after last night’s council meeting, which resulted in Councillor Wheeler calling Mr Gerrish a
    W***er, leopards don’t usually change their spots
