Try as they might, the Liberal Democrats cannot get away from two poor results in Southend last June. In Southend West the Lib Dems lost their deposit (for the first time ever).
Leigh ward is in Southend West, and last June the Liberal Democrats were wiped out as two-party politics hit Southend West for the first time in many a year. Will the Liberal Democrats be able to recover enough to hold on here, in Leigh ward? I doubt it. The Labour candidate is doing very well, and the Tories appear quietly confident.

If voters in Leigh ward really want their vote to count then I would encourage them to support Michelle Williams
