Admin notice

As a result of complaints received by the Electoral Commission and at the polite request of the Electoral Commission, we have withdrawn a number of articles . ?Although we do not agree with the Commission’s assessment, we aren’t going to test their will through the courts. ?It is a waste of time and money for us as well as the tax payer.

However – the same posts will return tomorrow with a view to discuss what exactly could be considered an election advertisement or an attempt to influence the outcome of the by-election.

With advanced voting open for over a week during which everyone was influencing who and what to vote for, we understand the law is the law and it has neither a sense of humour nor a need to provide common sense.

We have OIAd who has laid the complaint.
