Nick Xylas has officially been confirmed as the Wessex Regionalists candidate for Eastville. Writing on his election website blog, Nick, who was raised in Patchway and lives in Upper Eastville , said, 'I had my meeting today with the council's electoral services department at their offices on Smeaton Road. I was slightly delayed due to the traffic disruption caused by the Metrobus works, thus giving me ample time to prepare my big speech to the council, if elected, asking why it is taking them 18 months to build a glorified bus lane when Brunel managed to convert the entire Great Western main line between London and Bristol from broad gauge to standard gauge in a weekend.
The officers of the council spent a long time dotting every i and crossing every t, and ensuring that everything was signed in triplicate, but eventually my papers were accepted. The only thing that remains is for them to verify the names on my nomination paper, but I don't anticipate any problem with that'.
The Wessex Regionalists have never contested Eastville before, and Nick will be delivering a message of decentralism to the ward's electorate, including replacing the present unelected Neighbourhood Partnerships with democratically elected Community Councils.
Nick would welcome assistance in delivering the WR message from party members and supporters, as well as donations towards the election funds. You can contact Nick via his election website at http://wr4eastville.weebly.com/contact.html.
The Wessex Regionalists are the only real alternative to the Westminster parties and the centralised diktat, and our participation in the Eastville election is anticipated to be the first of many electoral challenges ahead for the party. As Nick says, 'The preparation is over. It is time to begin the campaign in earnest'.
