Gavin Webb, former Liberal Democrat and ex-Communications-Director for the UK Libertarian Party has announced he is standing for Uttoxeter Town council. He stands as “the candidate with libertarian principles”.
Uttoxeter is a town of 13,039 in Staffordshire. The controversial poll, allegedly called at the instigation of the Conservatives, takes place on Thursday, 7th July in the parish. It would not have gone ahead were it not for the intervention of a non-resident Tory who galvanised support from 10 residents to force the poll.
