Former councillor Nils Christiansen

In response to: Joe Public Is Not Stupid

I was not aware that Nils Christiansen was deselected as a candidate for the Conservatives and if this is true it is shocking as he has for the last four years clearly displayed excellent impartial counsel to the council.

I was aware that he resigned from the Conservatives to join the Independents which to my mind better suited his honest impartiality anyway and I thought he was just taking a break from politics.

His departure is a great loss to Guildford and had he stayed I feel he would have made a great candidate for leader of the council.

Maybe, if he wanted to jump back into the office he could contest any by-elections between now and 2023?

Please come back Nils.

Editor’s note: The deselection of Nils Christiansen, and others, was extensively covered in The Guildford Dragon as can be seen via the links below.
