While we didn't get a massive numbers of votes in the recent local by-election in Medway, at least we did better than the candidate who won. He has resigned after 2 weeks having realised that he can't continue to work as a special constable and be a councillor. Interstingly he is also a head teacher at a local private school - if it had been a state school he would have had to give that up too.
I hope that we stand again in the next by-election. Getting out there on the ballot paper is always the right thing to do.
