    That’ll be the last we see of him until the next election.

    So, 3 or 4 months then.

    Who are the people who vote for this #mydude is beyond my understanding. His achievement list is ridiculously short, his voting history shameful. Instead he is an arrogant and populist man with a hair that’s laughing stock across the country.
    Who are you people? Talk to me. Why did you vote for this clown???

    He is the perfect appointment for Lichfield. He’ll do nothing, the vast majority of the population of Lichfield don’t need anything doing, and they don’t want anything doing. They want to be left alone to live their nice comfortable lives and they don’t like the idea of having to think about those not living nice comfortable lives.
    Elect the chap then leave us alone until next time. Perfect.

    Didn’t expect anything else. The verdict of a lot of elderly complacent people (Not a stereotype, I’m 65 and I hear them)

    Most posters on here seem to be completely out of touch with the majority of the Lichfield electorate.
    Guilty of living “nice comfortable lives” when with a bit of effort it could be turned into a festering suburb of Brum or Wolverhampton – how dare they be so selfish?

    Because Fabricant works SO hard every day to keep Lichfield a perfect paradise ?

    “No deal is better than a bad deal” as Theresa May goes off to deal with the Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland.

    Coalition of chaos, regardless of Fabricants win.
