  1. Thanks Stuart! So we have our first Green Party councillor and a couple of Conservative gains. Perhaps we will end up with a council that listens more to the local communities
    – hope so!

  2. Congratulations to Karl Beaney for holding the West St.Leonards seat, commiserations to John Cannan, Jane Packman and, Stewart Gregory Rayment.

    This clearly demonstrates the lack of trust felt by the community of the controlling Labour group, one that is seemingly echoed nationally.

  3. It looks to me as though the voters have made it a mark on how they feel this current council is treating the them. Yes Bryan some better hope they will listen to the community but Labour are still in overall control. They will just have to work harder at opposing what the public want and not what they want all the time.
    I do hope the Conservatives will be more vocal and challenging than in the past.
