Strong support for Paul and Ted as campaign continues Paul and Ted are continuing to find strong support in Southfields as they meet residents as part of their election campaign. In the first week, almost 100 electors pledged their support and some offered to assist delivering leaflets. Much of their effort in the early days was concentrated on meeting students before they left for their Easter holiday. “I think that students have been impressed with the work that we have been doing on street marshals”, said Ted. “They realise that such a scheme would be both in their interests and of local residents who have to tolerate noise and disturbance from a very small minority of students. They also cannot understand why Labour councillors, when they bother to attend the University campus liaison committee, are so vehemently opposed to such a scheme”. Students also expressed their support for the work that Paul and Ted were doing to ensure greater control over landlords and totally supported the idea of a licensing scheme. “Selective and additional licensing is something that we have been pushing for the past four years”, explained Paul. “We have succeeded in getting concluded in the Conservative manifesto and this will become policy after 2 May. Curiously, the Labour manifesto merely states its support for ‘mandatory’ licensing which is, of course, already implemented effects the larger HMOs”. Paul and Ted intend to continue their work among students when they return from their holidays in before the elections. “There are a significant number of students living in the ward who are entitled to vote”, added Ted, “and with Loughborough having reputation as being the most pro-Conservative university in the UK, we are conscious that gaining their trust and support is a key part of the work that we do.”
