Look at Abbey Meads result

Big majority for Mr Heaton and Mr Jones.... but labour into third place with a massive UKIP vote.....

A local issue?

Rod only just scrapped through as well, i wonder if he'll see that as a vindication or as a shot across the bows?

There was a twitchy 5 minutes for Rod when he had a Junab Ali moment. Sarah's votes were miscounted showing her as a winner by 200. Bit of entertainment at the end of the night but soon corrected.

Martins leadership challenge won't solidify.  Over this weekend the Rodigarch will have his new Parliamentary puppies phoning round the Tory group and giving them the 'don't rock the boat speech'.

I'm happy to be proved wrong if it rids us of Swindons verion of Peter Mandelson.

Surely the MPs are the big dogs of the Tories now. Rods antics did not do them any favours in the run up. I would have thought they would like a bit more local stability if another general election is round the corner.

If Nick Martin's bid is dead in the water and I think it is very likely now, then Rod will rule so get used to it. Being proved wrong on this one is OK by me for as the saying goes  a "new broom etc", but what about Labour should they not now have to consider their leadership too.  The game has changed for them just as much. I am sure of one thing some cllrs in Swindon will be hopping over both sides of the fence this weekend  :-X

Fairly certain that the result above is wrong and the Lib Dem and UKIP vote have been mixed up.  Will try and find a source to confirm.  By the way, first post on TalkSwindon so hi everyone.

Edit:  http://www.swindon.gov.uk/local_results_2010.pdf

That's the one - top result.  Lib Dem and UKIP have been mixed up in the top post above

I need to say front-up that I've not moved to Penhill; this double quote seems logical to me.

Chris you said;

and Geoff-bin-in jadedly replied


But that's common sense thinking Chris, have you forgotten we're talking about politicians?

To which I say..
There is a diff. These are stories playing with stories. These civic stories elected the London-bound boys. Party cohesion is a bit more important to them than is implied ( comment on this Mr Dubya? - you were once one of them...after a fashion). The civic stories will do quite a bit to present the perfect story image. There'll be no cracking for a while.

I need to say, the term is up-front. I have moved to Penhill, bought a house, do vol work in the community, am a co-founder of a charity oh yes and paid my way through evening classes, college and at the grand old age of 40 University (BSc) , my husband is a highly trained professional who also spent 35 years in the regular and territorial army, I live near a mental health worker, teacher, teachers assistant, and others in jobs as varied as kitchen fitters to account administrators.....just what was the point you were making here?

And surmising by your by-line under your name tag that you are a Tory, 444 'Penhillians' voted for 'your' party  some of them may just be reading this as well!

Ermmm... just that I don't as a rule use  quote upon quote in my posts, as Penhillians have been light-heartedly accused of by another.

What, may I ask, is your point?

Oh... well no actually....
I consider the Leakey's to be  the most civic minded people I've met ( of course I've not met you, so I may be wrong but let's accept they are in my top-15).
Kevin Leakey would've been a brillant cowcillor, as would Karen.

You are indeed making an assumption.

Two to be precise.

1. That we are all party political
2. That Penhillians are a seperate species.

Hi Zip

Yes I used to be one after a fashion, just like I used to be six stone once something I can remember, but something I will never acheive again, well not until 6 months after I am dead and buried?

As for the Leakeys yes I like them both but as an election is counted on votes 1202 people X factored one box rather than the Leaky one.

Liz in Penhill Zip is not a Tory by any stretch of the imagination and recently pointed out the tactical vote in South Swindon was not for the Tories.

Zip you must have been pleased with the Chippenham result and a tad ticked off with Northwilts? I was sorry Mike Evemy did not make it home I wanted him to stop the Building os Swindon |Doorstep. I now have to face the reality will the following stop development on Swindon Doorstep?

James Gray Tory MP
Jane Scott Tory WC Council leader
Robert Buckland Tory MP
Justin Tomlinson Tory Tory MP
Rod Bluh Tory SBC Council Leader


I would be very happy to be proved wrong on this one :popcorn:

You're spot on re Mr n Mrs Leakey (although the cowcillor bit is making me smirk, I'm guessing it’s a typo, I do hope so cos if not you are SO dead!) :fence:

ZPW, my apologies, :(

 I spent hours with a bigoted stereotyped numpty who was acting as a teller at the same polling station I was listening to him spout on about penhill people and their 'reputation', I was oversensitive to your remark and unaware of previous multiquote posts.

However I never assume, it makes an ass of u to me.  I surmise!
So
1, If you vote, discuss or ‘label’ posts then, IMHO, it’s a fair indicator of political interest at the very least.
2.  Penhiilians  are not a separate species, they are people, of all walks of life and ideas.  Whilst working as a PA to the Director of Governance in a blue chip company I stepped in to correct a stereotype.  A head of dept made a swingeing statement about the possible performance of employees from Penhill.  Having spent two days helping him resolve an issue I asked him what he thought of my work.  When he finished I told him where I lived...for once..he didn’t know what to say.

Yes Mr Dubya,
I was vee happy to see the Opera star better the Sausage Czar in Chippingham.
Really pleased - a victory for the anti-image contingent as well as all else.

I despair of North Wilts. the farmers got what they deserve a perfect dinner-party bore for the next term of Govt.
Mike Evemey was always a bit of a long shot, but he really should've played his campaign to a tune the shire-folk would be able to dance to. Most of this constituency vote for Westminster control... so I guess he was always going to lose...

I think your hope for a stay on dvlpmnt is now truly doomed.
Jane Scott could give a tinker-cuss about Swindon and any seeping of it's westen borders.
Charmaine, the Scrutons and Inchcape  might be your allies...? Their NIMBY energies need another a fresh outlet perhaps - they are also very minded that they need a broader group to add fibre to their 'good works'.
But hold on...I'm clearly inhaling the drug of optimism...( or should that be the optimistic drug? Correct my English here if you will Penhill-Liz) You haven't got a hope, the building will go on ( and on and on and on....)

Indeed, i meant to type 'cowncillor' but whateva... the point is made. Kevin will continue to be a great cowncillor - it's just so much more mammoth a task if one is working for the ward outside the civic. Still... he's done it for years and will doubtless do so for many more

Steve, when you say "you used to be one", can I assume that you refer to your years as a tory? if so, can I ask if you have finished your journey around the council chamber?  I noted that you appeared on one of Anne's election leaflets and wondered if that was a sign that you intend to continue your journey to the 'left' (a term I hjave to use loosely given the way political parties are practically falling on top of each other these days).

Are you going to join the labour party?

Hi Buster

Ask away  I have to look at the Tory Libdem out come as that is one possiblity no one was talking of a few days ago. Will I join Labour I do admit I once voted Libdem/SDP in Putney against David Mellor and yes it was a tactical vote. I had been impressed as well by an active Putney Libdem one Peter Hain now look where he is. I was also interested in another Liberal Winston Churchill.

Buster what is your political affiliation? (If you want to answer it?) I am the only independent in the SBC council chamber. I intend to stay that way until 20th May 2010  ;) If I was going to join the labour party they would be the first to know unless you are their membership secretary?

Why Labour anyway? If Andy Harrison becomes the leader of the  LIbdems then who knows what may happen in Swindon in the future  :-X

Looking at UKIP no I dont like flying!

Green no even they are far to socialist even for my liking.

Socialist Unity "Hope not Hate" now that has a ring to it that I like.

Buster I think the journey is as they say still on the bus, but to be fair how likely am I to vote with conservatives in the chamber, depends on their policies.

I am at present representing the people in the ward not a party, but some party policies are better for the ward I represent and this town  and I will vote with my conscience accordingly.

The journey continues.

I think certain councillors have come across 'the look' before !

Thanks Steve, I was just curious as I saw you in a labour leaflet and as you were a member of the tories at one point.  Given the propensity for councillors at SBC to cross the floor, some stopping in the middle for a short time and others making the journey from one side to the other in one go, I thought I'd ask if you plan to join labour.

I'm not affiliated to any party, I think of parties as being a bit of a scurge of politics, the way they force all their members to follow a party line or a party message is a bit like forcing people to buy off the peg which just forces people to sacrifice their preferences over the shade or the size in order to have something affordable.  Sometime tailor made is best and settling for off the peg just won't suffice.

A politician who follows their convictions and votes accordingly may be unpopular with other tribal politicians, but will usually have the respect of the people they serve, look at Ken Livingstone and his relationship with Blair....he still managed to become London Mayor. It's far easier to argue your case if you genuinely believe it rather than trying to argue a prescribed case presented by a party machine which you don't genuinely support.

I hope you stay independent of the other parties, in doing so you may not be trusted by the other councillors, but for the very reasons they may take that attitude towards you, IMHO the public will feel the same sense of distrust in them.

Many other councillors have been criticised on here for crossing the floor and not resigning, and you appear to have escaped that questions so far, however if you only walk half way across the floor I think you can justify your actions more effectively than anyone who leaves one party and joins another in the style of Ms Tossing Curls and her hubby and a number of others have done.

You said in your reply that you would be independent until the 20th may 2010, what happens on that day?

Hi Buster

Its a private joke, but as I know this board is read by lots of people I just thought I would put it in. 21st May is the start of the new Municipal Council Year and if you are going to cross a floor that is the day to do it. BTW This happend a few years ago when a Tory switched to Labour on that date at that meeting and it went down like the proverbial lead ballon.

To be fair as far as I can recall all those that switched have been re-elected to the council so there is life after party.

Ps Bobby never a truer word spoken in jest :)
