Dollard slates Labour – will stand as Independent in local election

Cllr. Mick Dollard who has been a Labour councillor since 1984, confirmed to Topic this week that he intends to contest the upcoming local elections as an Independent candidate.

He was scathing in his criticism of the Labour Party, which he said has lost its core values and no longer represents working class people due to its failure to deliver social housing while in government from 2011-2016.
