  1. Just to add to that: 5th on the list (East Devon District Council) is currently run by a Democratic Alliance of non-Tory councillors in which Lib Dems have a significant stake – and it’s all up for election this May. (A large portion of EDDC lies within Richard Foord’s par;iamentary constituency). The Tories were removed from office in 2019 after more than 40 years of domination.

  2. LIONEL KING, aged 86 years and 9 months is to contest Knowle Ward, Solihull MBC
    in response to the appeal by Solihull & Meriden LA for candidates to contest on a broader front than for many years past. Lionel has been a parliamentary candidate at three General Elections and in eight previous local government elections, beginning in Birmingham in 1961. He was a member of Balsall Parish Council 2007-2019. It is possible that he is one of the oldest candidates of any party to be standing in May 2023.
