Although our party leader was not elected, it was with great exultation that he was almost 100% up on the last time he stood in same election, and gained only 60 votes.
He was also jubilant that in some neighbouring wards he received more votes than 3 other Labour candidates and 1 other.
Something to build on, for the not to distant future. Hopefully! All is not lost party wise though, he still holds his seat on the Fleet Town Council, and has done for 9 years now!
More news to follow from other members who stood, as soon as known.
Other News, we shall be standing in the Peterborough by-election on Thursday 6th June. Papers all in and accepted, thanks must go to the Incredible ‘Flying Brick’ our party treasurer. For it was he, that traveled all the way from Derbyshire to Peterborough to procure the 10 signatures that I needed in the pouring rain. There’s professional Loonyism for you.
If any members live in and around Peterborough, I shall be there as from Monday 27th til Friday 7th , come and find us, we’ll be in town. College Arms, Drapers Arms, Sportsmans, are looking good places to find us. Look out for anyone wearing a ‘Loony Badge’ to catch up!!
