VETERAN campaigner Terry Hutt is delivering a stark warning to Hertfordshire County Council: No buses, no votes.
Mr Hutt is urging people who are opposed to the council's decision to scrap the number 17 bus route to display posters he has produced in their windows.
He said: "Politicians are worried about their seats, and we want them to know that if they don't give us the bus service we need they won't be getting our votes.
"I've given out about 200 posters so far, and people have been telling me they will put them up in their homes and even in their cars.
