  • Shame you don’t put the areas in which those voting ‘for’ are located. Why would someone who represents and lives in Great Wakering worry about the over-development, drainage and traffic 7 miles away in a town they hardly visit? Even the rubbish dump they use is in the Southend Borough so no queuing in Castle Lane for them!
