Would this be Toby's worst nightmare and the  Libdem silver dream glitter in their hands whoop whoop result? However if it is; it will it still be a   :wakeup: its a coalition for the people of Swindon? http://www.thisisgloucestershire.co.uk/news/Lib-Dem-s-Chris-Coleman-wins-Cheltenham-Borough-Council-seat-Springbank/article-2815096-detail/article.html

Anyway Cheltenham's Springbank ward is a long way from Moredon's borders :coffee:

NB LibDems were down 1% Tories were down 16% but Labour were up 13%

I used to do some work up there in Cheltenham, and the town pretty much tends to be in it's own climate there. Springbank's population makes it pretty much a LD safe seat. The Tories discounted it in their general election plans when they had decent money floating around--so what's to say they didn't this time too? Whilst Labour is counted as credible or powerful as the Greens, so its interesting to see their rise.

I think if we can read anything from that, it's that our chief non-government parties i.e. Labour, Independents, might be in for a big bump in Moredon?

Oh I think not.

Sometimes I think you have to march right in and demand your rights, even if you don’t know what your rights are, or who the person is you’re talking to. Then, on the way out, slam the door.

Cheltenham was tory once just like Moredon, which has been both labour and tory during this century. A libdem to join the conservative councillors in the same division? A thought to savour, but you never know the larger group of libdem councillors being driven by their recently found impetus may yet do something incredible in Moredon?
To qualify for inclusion there is only one rule - something described must have been said to have happened. `If the facts don`t fit the legend, print

Hey Ringer, nah! I actually meant the Springbank ward in Cheltenham! The wider constituency--pfft. Nigel Jones attacked. John Taylor's selection. That could merit a rather long, rather up and down history all of itself!

--Other news, Moredon's gone red with a large vote also for UKIP...So, I proudly stand by my predictions. Tories did well though...very well all considering. And commiserations to Chris Watts, squeezed outside. Though I'm sure his hard work won't go unnoticed.

I think that there has been a terrible terrible mis-understanding.

This is me after the election.
