I do apologise for the rather spartan preview this week. This was due to a number of factors ranging in severity from having to do multiple shopping trips, signing legal paperwork and a breakdown in my internet (caused by unannounced work on the phone lines in my village). A lot of the information has been sourced from “English Elections” (which can be found at www.englishelections.org.uk) for which I am grateful and all things being accurate (and there are no more unexpected phone line work) normal service will be resumed next week
