NO, D R Smith. I, as one of the many Coxford area voters who gave our independent councillor Keith Morrell a landslide win, were not under the illusion that he was Labour.

How dare you suggest we are that stupid (Letters, August 29).

It is exactly your and Labour’s contempt for us voters why we pushed Labour into third place in Coxford.

Mr Smith – we know the difference between a hardworking candidate who put people first and a Labour stooge.
