Have they forgotten she’s two faced, a supposed green candidate that is also a housing developer??
It’s like Turkeys voting for Christmas.

IF she ‘is’ two faced, then how come she always wears the ugly one?

Vote reform, for truly endless arrivals of those who have huge families are the LEAST green thing that an happen to such a small country as we have.

Why doesn’t SHE address that issue, which is more damaging to our country than anything else? Vote reform only ones with the sense and guts to say the truth.

Tory boy boy was useless, full of waffle, did he help the people that got flooded in Ryde, nope, turned up for a photo op of course then buggered off. Very helpful. Sarah Morris chipped in to help though. Vote Reform.

I’m sure she only did it for the votes. Don’t vote Reform.

Sarah Morris did not do it for the votes! She was actually fighting keeping her own property dry, also lending her pumps to fellow neighbours who were flooding and helping them clean up in a horrendous situation they all found themselves in. She is a fellow islander who helps assist in anyway she can for her community. There are no hidden agendas. Vote Reform.

I agree. She put a rubbish leaflet through my letterbox that I had to put straight in the bin. Now very green at all.

I bet if that had been in the west wight the result would be very different.
They have seen first hand her “green attempt” at ruining the countryside to make expensive houses and great profits, i wonder how many “greens” know her husband has a mining business….
Maybe the termanology “green” fits these people perfectly.

Obviously, her mates snapped up most of the tickets. She has zero chance of winning because we know she can’t be trusted. All about herself.

This is the shower that wants to increase foreign aid from 6 billion to 26 billion a year.
Also her rosette is not able to be recycled and she drives a car. This means that all the rubber coming of tyres i s
washed into rivers and seas destroying the environment.

Just think about more than pot holes or sewage in our sea which ought to be a Council/ Island Roads and Water board issues.

Consider what it will mean for your children’s future IF as is happening we have a truly never ending and seemingly unstoppable amount of illegals filling this small country.

Vote REFORM if you love your children , country and culture
