    Hi Kelvin, Marvin Rees is a nice fellow sure enough. But his planning consists of asking for a review. On the BBC debate he had no idea what to do about lots of important things. He did not know how many care homes he wanted to close for example. Bristol has spent a long time dithering not sure we want any more. His living wage plan is copied from the Green Party's plan and he has also copied the Green Party idea of buying energy on a community basis. Still it is great that he is copying so many Green policies. Marvin and Geoff are both doing this which is good.

    Marvin Rees is the only candidate with a clear plan, the ability to deliver it and will draw on talent across the different communities right across Bristol.

    Daniella Radice. She is the only woman standing and her policies are very good. So good that the men are copying them. Have a look at them here
