Byline TV’s Caolan Robertson went to Wellingborough the day of the by-election to find out why the previously Tory constituency saw a massive swing to Labour, despite Keir Starmer’s party barely attracting any new votes. What he found was, rather than a boost in enthusiasm for Labour, a cohort of Tory voters who feel let down by the Government and the Conservative party and decided to simply not show up.

    This is not a recent phenomenon and it has been fostered by all of the main political offerings for decades now. They used voter apathy to their advantage and never sought to encourage non-voters who had missed two polling opportunities, to start voting again.

    They ALL stopped posting literature, and knocking on the doors of non-voters because they knew that if they managed to get them to turn out, the voters would not vote for them and they would lose.

    So they left them alone behind their front doors to rot and wallow in self-pity, moaning about the state of their towns, but never doing the only thing that could save them…

    Voting for alternative Independent alternatives.

    People who are just like them, who have stood up to fight this purposeful and intended destruction of our democracy.

    This is not just Wellingborough and not just an isolated event, it is a growing cancer inside our Town Hall local elections, Mayoral elections and General Elections. They knew what they were doing, but we have now reached the tipping point where their actions will show our democracy of the past 40 years for what it is… A sham!

    If you don’t believe me when I say they intended all this, well consider this!
    They know if you vote or not, they know your name, where you live and if those you live with vote or not. If you have not voted for a while I guarantee that you have not had anyone leafleting you, trying to canvass you or encourage you to vote…
    Even though they know who you are!
    Think about it.

    The cure is still voting at every opportunity, but NEVER EVER for any of the usual suspects… Vote Independent every time, because we are as fed up as you are, with the lies and broken promises, the only difference is that we have stood up to take this fight for our democracy to them!
