Just time for a quick roundup of the week..
Our big stories
We also updated our list of local election 2019 candidates. Things are getting busier for us now as we hurtle toward May, so if you’d like to help us out, you can buy us a coffee or even become a contributor to this site.

Rehman About Town!
If there’s one feature we’re asked to bring back more than any other, it’s our weekly roundup of everything and everyone the MP for Gillingham and Rainham has had his photograph taken with.
This week, Rehman has had his photo taken with the Singapore High Commissioner, people from his Conservative Association, Nick Robinson while appearing on Radio 4, a Pakistani cricketer, the Ambassador of Switzerland, residents and councillors in Wigmore, some folks from Arkansas, some students from Rainham Mark Grammar School, the Bishop of Rochester, the Oast House Christmas Bazaar, the Hempstead Village Fair, and residents in Rainham. Phew.
Somehow, we’re back: It’s been a tough year for all of us, and we had to take a little step back from The Political Medway. But we’re back now, and trying to provide as much good, independent coverage of politics in Medway as we can. We are a volunteer run team, and while there’s lots of things we’d like to cover, we only have a finite amount of time and resources we can dedicate to this. If you appreciate what we do, please consider making a one-off or monthly contribution via our Ko-fi. If you aren’t in a position to donate right now, that’s totally cool, and we really appreciate you stopping by regardless.
