‘We the undersigned state that we support the Bournemouth Christchurch and  Poole Unity Alliance.

We believe they have taken on the challenge of the Administration of a newly merged council, under a new political alliance very successfully. We believe that during the 15 months in control of the council, 6 of which have been a time of global and economic health crisis, the Unity Alliance has managed a unique set of circumstances, with an already depleted budget from Central Government, in a measured, caring, and effective way.

With the latest rise in COVID-19 cases, we believe the Officers and staff of the Council and BCP community do not need a change of Administration at this time (and some have stated this).

We believe the Unity Alliance to be a more democratic representation of the BCP community. The Conservatives, with only 28% of the electorate's vote, do not represent a true reflection of the community's wishes. The criticisms of the Unity Alliance have been inaccurate and disproportionate, especially regarding the transparency of the Unity Alliance, which has been the most open and transparent administration this area has known.

We ask Council Members to vote for the right leader to ensure the protection of the Unity Alliance Administration, to give a balance of cross party political power that truly engages with the BCP community and listens to its needs and wishes.
