A representative of Easington Labour party has said in the Northern Echo that there is a real possibility of Labour losing control of Durham County Council. After more than 90 years of control, the political map of County Durham is finally shifting. People across the County are waking up to the fact that there is an alternative to Labour.
Just three years ago Labour walked into power once again at County Hall. This time round even they believe they are in trouble. If Labour fails to win the vast majority of the seats in Easington, where their local party is in turmoil, they may not be the largest party on the new Unitary Council. This is why every vote will count on May 1st in every division across County Durham.
By ignoring the views of local people across the County, Labour now deserve to be ignored on May 1st.
