City’s big ideas more likely to sway vot­ers this time around

Birmingham Post - - NEWS -

VOTES in Sut­ton Cold­field elec­tions have tra­di­tion­ally been counted in the Town Hall – but this year both the coun­cil and par­ish elec­tions will be counted in the halls of the In­ter­na­tional Con­ven­tion Cen­tre. And the rea­son for this – Showad­dy­waddy.

Yes, the 1950s style rock­ers fa­mous for the brightly coloured teddy boy outfits had al­ready booked a gig at Sut­ton Town Hall on Fri­day, May 4 – the day of the elec­tion count and want to set up early that af­ter­noon. Imag­ine try­ing to an­nounce an elec­tion re­sult to the strains of ‘do wah diddy’.
