Some closing comments on events last week.

Friday May 20, 2005
I’m not too sure about the libel laws of England, and so I would point out that all of the following facts are already in the public domain either in published WWDC papers, or published in The Wiltshire Times today.

GOSW have made their decision about 'calling in' The Gap road.

West Wiltshire District Council's new Cabinet has been confirmed.

Friday May 13, 2005
The new leader at WWDC has announced the following Cabinet positions.

They have, I am sure, been awarded on ability, and not as a reward for supporting the 'coup' on Wednesday evening. However, this is not always the case, as evidenced by a letter written by a Lib Dem councillor from Preston City "Cabinet roles should be seen for what they are: patronage in the gift of the majority leader, unrelated to ability, often discharged inadequately and unworthy to be rewarded from public funds."

Cllr. Sarah Content succeeded in 'sacking' Tony Phillips, last night.

My heartfelt thanks to everybody that assisted me in my WCC campaign. Without the volunteer 'leaflet delivery team' there is no way that I could have delivered my Election Address and other flyers.

My thanks also to those that displayed my posters in their windows and gardens, and, of course, to the 1,612 people, other then me, that voted 'Ernie Clark, Independent'.

The result for this area was declared at 10.45 today.

Friday May 06, 2005
In a close run election over 4,500 votes were cast, but amazingly there were 57 'spoilt' papers, most of which were blank. It seems as though some people simply folded their ballot papers together and forgot about the WCC election.

Free speech alive and well; as long as it isn't anti Lib Dem!

Thursday May 05, 2005
In a rather surprising posting on his web site, the current leader of the Lib Dems at County Hall felt obliged to berate the Independent candidates standing for election today. Who said that free speech was dead?

Sunday April 24, 2005
In the Election Address I list 20 of my 'aims' for Wiltshire County Council, together with a brief "Who am I?" piece.

I plan to issue one further flyer explaining my achievements over the past couple of years, and this too will be posted on this site, later this week.
