  1. Elsewhere it’s looking pretty devastating for Labour. Amusing interview with Diane Abbott on ITV, if you can dig it out, you should.

    If this is a foreshadow for the GE then Labour will join the LibDems in the wilderness and May will take it as a green light to pretty much do what she wants with Brexit.

  2. Someone who has worked tirelessly and visibly for the community for years just holds on over a challenge from someone who doesn’t, and sent out a pre-election general newsletter making unsubstantiated claims, complete with spelling errors. A dire comment on the state of the electorate.

  3. Ah, ever the troll.

    So I read, from John Griffin’s comment, that he’s dismayed that someone could serve a community for so long and only receive a marginal victory, against someone either opportunistically standing in the same election or hasn’t been active in the community.

    Not sure what you find difficult to understand Rob?

  4. Darryl:
    Could be that the electorate were aware of the length of service but didn’t think it was that good and about half of them fancied a change. Their prerogative in a democracy eh?
    What’s difficult to understand is the implied insult on “the state of the electorate” remark, as though they should know better or have something to be ashamed of.
    I really don’t understand this troll thing because it’s a term I never use. It appears to be dished out by posters to anyone who disagrees with them.
