FOR 1,500 YEARS, since the fifth century AD, Canvey Island was predominantly used for sheep rearing; but now it consists of a small, urban sprawl of some 40,000 residents - whose voting majority, judging from the latest local election results, shares much in common with those docile, bleating creatures. On 5th May, 2011, there was no change in Castle Point Borough Council’s landscape – and all the existing Canvey Island Independent Party (CIIP) blaggers retained their seats.

WHATEVER TOMORROW’S LOCAL ELECTION RESULTS, the Canvey Island Independent Party (CIIP) will have proved that it is possible to cajole a significant proportion of the population into voting for them, by simply applying three familiar rules:-
- Always misrepresent the facts.
- Always seek to discredit your opponents, and
- Never answer any questions.
