Labour Party Mayoral Candidate (Chad 22nd October). How can Martin Lee (the Labour Party Mayoral candidate) hope to wear the mayoral chains of office when his party councillors banned the current mayor Tony Egginton from doing so, on the grounds that the mayoral chains were only to be worn by ‘appointed’ mayors, not ‘elected executive’ mayors? 
Surely the Labour Party are not so arrogant as to believe that only their members are entitled to wear the mayoral chains of office? As for Martin Lee’s three priorities, jobs, homes and health, I dread to think what the council tax will rise to in order to pay for them.
