The more I think about it the more cynical things look with parties expected to hold selection meetings for candidates in the middle of local election campaigns. Those chosen are unlikely to be known to the local electorate and are basically names on ballot papers.
The PM has made it clear that the battleground is "Brexit" which will mean more of the unpleasantness of the referendum campaign. Clever move I suppose as it takes the limelight away from the desperate state of the NHS, cuts to schools budgets and benefits for the disabled. The timing is also good as Local Authorities won't start making cuts to public services until the new leaderships have had time to settle in to their posts.
