Carfax Ward by-election. 4th September.
The Greens have criticised Labour for engineering a 'sham election' timed at their convenience for when the majority of voters were absent.
Says Green Group Leader Cllr Sam Hollick "This is a hollow victory for Labour who won with the support of less than 4% of registered voters. This was a 'sham election' engineered by Labour to maximise their chances of retaining their remaining seat in Carfax ward following their defeat by the full electorate in May. I feel most sorry for the disenfranchised majority of electors.
