Belief reinforced by standing

May I, through the Courier/Weekly News, thank the 1,000-plus people who voted for me as Independent candidate for the Stoneleigh and Cubbington Ward in the Warwick District Council Election.

Unfortunately, their wishes were not quite enough to overcome the general swing to the Conservatives but my campaign reinforced my belief that there is a groundswell of support for a strong, reasoned and principled opposition.
