In their own words,
"Medway is a two horse race between Labour and the Conservatives as only the two main parties are contesting all council seats."
Labour clearly believes that failing to contest every seat means you are not in serious contention to win.
I have therefore Tweeted Medway Labour to ask, if this is the case, have they given up on Chatham and Aylesford, as Labour have failed to field a full slate of candidates here? Given only the Conservatives are contesting all 30 council seats, is C&A a "one horse race"?
I am awaiting their reply.
@MedwayLabour @Conservatives @cllrtrisosborne If fielding a full slate of candidates is so important, why aren't Labour doing so in C&A
