Amicus/Unite Facebook Straw Poll

In the absence of any scientific polling about the current election for General Secretary of the Amicus Section of Unite, here's the number of supporters each candidate has managed to register on their campaign pages on Facebook:

Kevin Coyne - 116 members

Derek Simpson - 113 members

Laurence Faircloth - 99 members

Jerry Hicks - not on Facebook

Paul Reuter - not on Facebook

Luke this not your typical left right split, it is about integrity. On nominations so far it is between Laurence and Kevin

Hi John, I have been told that the candidates have the following as friends on their face book sites.
Derek - Gill George
Kevin –Mr. Terry Steak & Kidney.
Laurence – Sun Reportere
Jerry- Tom, Mr. Richard and Harry
And that Paul Reuter has been told that Face Book has banned him just in case he gets too many friends which may crash the face book site.
All of the above can be proven as a scientific rumour.
Keep smiling…
