THE debate has started before the big day July 4.

Here is a post from Peter Smith:

“The political outlook for Eastbourne is bleak.

Clearly the Conservative Party will not win and the only hope for Eastbourne is for a hung Parliament.

In that scenario the Libs will have some traction and given that it is likely the Libs will regain Eastbourne the local MP may have some bargaining room.

If Labour secure an overall majority we will become a backwater as Labour has no historic presence record here so they are unlikely to fund any developments here when they have no future prospects of winning the seat,”
