Council by-election results

I'm still in hospital and will be for another 5-7 weeks whilst doing intensive physiotherapy to get myself walking again.I hope to be blogging a bit more from next week.

There was only one council by-election on Thursday:

Minehead South Ward, West Somerset DC. Ind hold.
Ind 393 (51.5%; -7.5), Con 370 (48.5%;+7.5). Swing of 7.5% from Ind to Con since 2007.

I look forward to your 'results coverage' for Erith soon.

Just as soon as Downing Street have stuffed the required number of votes into the ballot box to ensure the success of their own candidate.

Just when you think Labour can't possibly get any more corrupt..........they just DO!

Honestly, it's enough to make you vote for B O B Piper LOL

Silent hunter, the various accusations (most of which sound like sour grapes from folk who haven't canvassed as hard or sent as many leaflets) are all against a Blairite candidate, who is thus extremely unlikely to be "backed by Downing Street". Do try to keep up with the different strands of Labour opinion.

I'm in an NHS hospital and it is very clean. I wouldn't go private on principle - I don't believe queue jumping because you can pay should be legal.

Dear Luke
I've just logged on to check your news, as I do from time to time and I am very sorry to learn of your illness. I do hope that you make a full and speedy recovery and we are once again able to cross swords (blunt ones)at Council in the not to distant future. Once again best wishes.

Get well soon Luke. We need you to put these Tory windbags in their place. Labour should take no lectures in corruption from the party that gave us Neil Hamilton, Jeffrey Archer, Joathan Aitken, Shirley Porter, and more recently, Derek Conway.

Arnold all politicians are corrupt left and right. There is no difference between Labour and Conservative. They all stand for their own selfish aims and that of big business.

Come the revolution!!!!

Well another year and another budget,,,,but this one may be interesting.

No matter what happens now or next year we all know there are going to be massive cuts in public spending and an increase in tax. This will happen regardless of who wins the next election.

My big question is what are they going to cut. I fear that it will be leisure services and adult education that wil be first hit....in particular leisure centres and night school classes.

I've been there too Luke and was very well treated in a first-rate NHS hospital. This has excellent doctors, clean and modern wards, attentive nurses and modern comforts like digital TVs at every bedside. It would be difficult to conceive of a better private experience. My experience is that the NHS is very good and very responsive for serious illness, but that more routine conditions can put you on an unreasonably long waiting list. So the hospital may be good, but you wait far too long to get to it. That is where private healthcare has some role to play.

Blimey. Hope you get well soon as Luke. You may be wrong about all manner of party issues, IMO, but your campaigning zeal and ability will be missed in the Euro campaigns. Take care.

By a bizarre coincidence i also suffer from CIDP, having being very ill about two years ago, and now being in the long recovery phase.

the condition does improve over time, although to be honest the ocassional pain stays with you, but my experience is that the debiliating aspect that stops your limbs working sort of gets better on its own.

Luke - if you want to chat with someone who has had the same thing and come out the other end, please fell free to contact me

Incidently, I was also treated by the NHS (having opted out of private health insurance on principle, like Luke)

the NHS were absolutely brilliant.

Poetic justice. Straight out of late Dennis Potter.

Our boy's got fucked up for the fuck ups he's imposed on everyone else.

And now he's going to have to terms with the NHS. £100bn and he'll wait yonks for a crap nurse and crap doctor and get crapped on.

Someone glue a red flag to the poor bastard's dick.

Try the link above its a very interesting film about the secret "global elite" Obama is popular. That is the only reason he got elected. He is the right one for the purposes of the new world order clan

Its time we done away with parliament as the majority of MP's work for the Global Elite and not their constituents!

The system needs restructuring MPs should be replaced by elected people deputies and must spend at least 1 day doing manual work and live on the average workers pay!
