Party Politics has no place in local matters, particularly when measured against individuals who actually care, and can rise above the unnecessary personal attacks of this campaign. Will the 'stone -throwers' learn lessons and change ? show some humility and non party engagement ?, or will the arrogance and disconnect continue? Time will tell, but the public are not fools... Well done Residents of Wilmslow.
