Here we go again: The Political Medway is a volunteer run website attempting to cover politics in Medway from an independent point of view. As we approach yet another General Election, there’s lots of things we’d like to cover, but we only have a finite amount of resources. If you appreciate what we do, please consider making a one-off or monthly contribution via our Ko-fi page. The more money raised, the more coverage we can provide, so every little bit really does help. Thanks.
