WHAT are the big issues for you in Solihull and Meriden?
For many it will be the loss of maternity services at the hospital, for others education, the loss of the green belt, transport, or council tax and business rates.
The list can be as long as you like and however you view it, there is enough there on both a local and national level to keep the politicians busy right up until polling day on May 6.
On the national stage we have some excellent leading candidates too, so it’s a pity that with no end of problems to sort out, attacks have descended to the personal level in Solihull.
This is really not what we want to see - mudslinging does no one any credit and the idea that it’s an indication of just how important the Solihull seat is just won’t wash.
There are six days left until May 6 - and no doubt all the parties will be shifting into frenzy mode in a last ditch bid to convince the floating voter to put their cross by them.
Let’s hope they keep it clean and we are allowed to focus on what really matters - the issues.
