Mr Mustard's interest in local government is not political, he is concerned with finance and democracy. There is an election coming up which gives you the chance to exercise your democratic rights and it is often said that no-one has the right to tell you how to vote.
Mr Mustard is not telling you how to vote but he thinks that one outspoken individual needs to learn some humility and that the vote on 3 May presents an opportunity for that individual to learn that you do need to please some of the people some of the time.
There does seem to be a certain amount of cross party support for this ABC idea.
There are 3 ballot papers that you are presented with on polling day so you have ample chance to follow your party loyalties in choosing your mayor and the London-wide members. Mr Mustard would be grateful though if you could set aside party politics when it comes to who represents us in Barnet so please vote for one of the other 4 choices ( Fresh Choice(UKIP), Labour, Green or "London" Liberal ).
Please vote for the person who you think will do the best job, who will listen to the residents and treat everyone with respect and decency.
