HERALD FOLLOWS GAZETTE WITH THEIR SHEPWAY POLL

Local paper, the Folkestone Herald have followed the Hawkinge Gazette with its own poll asking the question, 'Should voters look for another party to run Shepway?'

The Gazette poll was targeted at the beginning of the week by the local Conservatives attempting to influence the result.

The Herald have said that following the controversy it has decided to conduct its own 'truly independent poll'.

We wish them luck, but short of inking voter's fingers the party machines will still be able to conjure up supporters willing to pay 50p for the newspaper in order to vote.

But with more people voting, I can see the Herald sales being the biggest winner in this democratic exercise.
