The BBC is reporting that the request for postal vote in two Birmingham city wards have dropped since the last election by up to 80%.
The wards mentioned are Bordsley Green and Aston.
The councillors who won the seats in those wards are:-
CHOUDHRY, ZAKER [Lib Dem]
KHAN, SHAUKAT ALI [Lib Dem]
SHAH, SHAFIQUE [Lab]
AZIZ, ABDUL [Independent]
ISLAM MBE, ZIAUL [Lab]
KHAN, AYOUB [Lib Dem]
Yet from listening to Radio 4's Today programme this morning you would never have known it was largely Labour and Lib Dem councillors who benefitted.
Draw your own conclusions.
