Little's Log: Norwich City Council: UEA Students need not apply

Little's Log: Norwich City Council: UEA Students need not apply
I am not usually the world's biggest fan of Tory Cllr. Antony Little, but in this post he is bang on the money. It is a disgrace that the LibDems in Eaton are whipping up anti-student prejudice in this election to try to hold onto this, their last 'safe' seat in the city.
The Green Party is standing a number of students for the Council this year in Norwich, and if elected they will make excellent Councillors, as did Adrian Ramsay (who was still at UEA when he got first elected to the Council.). For example, Ruth Makoff in my ward (Wensum) and Amandine Stone in University ward -- both highly-intelligent and hard-working candidates. It will be especially interesting to see what happens in Uni ward. 'The University ward Labour team' have in the past not been averse to student-bashing, in a 'populist' bid to win votes off campus. But Amandine seems so far to be winning quite a lot of Green votes both off AND on campus.
Perhaps those in the LibDems and Labour who bad-mouth student candidates for Council will have cause to regret doing so, at this election...
