Claire Wright Independent Candidate for East Devon –
Claire Wright ten times more popular than Jupp!
See post below – no mention on BBC local news so here is what they COULD have broadcast!
Well, you DO see independent councillors and Claire Wright pretty often – but not with Hugh Grant!

Why not when Jupp got coverage for Johnson and Hancock visits?
“Hugh Grant has backed the Independent Parliamentary Candidate for East Devon Claire Wright and will join her on the campaign trail on Monday morning (December 9).
The actor is encouraging people to vote tactically at the polls next Thursday to stop a Conservative majority and has been out campaigning alongside Labour and Liberal Democrat hopefuls.
He is supporting Wright, whose 21,000 votes at the 2017 general election make her the only candidate with any realistic chance of taking the seat from the Conservatives.
It is the seventh constituency the actor has targeted during the election campaign.
Mr Grant will go door knocking with Wright’s canvassing team. He will rally canvassers and supporters at Sidmouth seafront around 11.15am.
You are free to follow the canvassing team around the town and to film and record the event. Hugh is happy to talk to local and regional media but time will be tight and there will not be any time for extended one-to-one interviews.”
