There is a postponed Council election tomorrow in South Kesteven. It is the contest for the Deeping St James Ward which was postponed from last month after the sad death of sitting Conservative councillor Ken Joynson.
At first sight it would appear their are no Labour candidates. But the electors of Deeping St James should be aware that Phil Dilks, who gives himself no Party description, is a Labour Party member and former Labour councillor and Labour press officer. If even someone like him is embarrassed of his Party association then Ed Miliband really is in trouble.
Mr Dilks styles himself "Fair Deal Phil". Wouldn't it be offering a fair deal with the electorate if he was straight with them about his allegiances?
