Voting this Thursday

In Mapledurham ie those who vote at Mapledurham Pavilion, we can only vote in the European Elections on Thursday, 22nd May.

Reading Borough Council has a four year electoral cycle with a third of wards up in each of years 1, 2 & 3 and a barren 4th year.  Each ward, except for Mapledurham, which has just one councillor (namely me), all have 3 Councillors.

I hope all of you will take this opportunity to vote. If you are interested below is what Rob Wilson has to say about the European elections:

"At a European level, our Conservative representatives are once again demonstrating their determination to listen to the views of the British people and to deliver the real change that the people desire. Conservative MEPs are continually fighting Britain’s corner in Europe, standing up for our interests and working to bring back power from Brussels.
"We are the only party that will guarantee you an in-out referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU: Labour and the Lib Dems refuse to give you a referendum and UKIP cannot deliver one. The Conservatives plan to negotiate a better deal for Britain and then, regardless of the results, give you an in/out referendum by the end of 2017.
"Remember, a vote for the Conservatives in Europe is a vote for change.
