Actually YH - you're taking an interest because this is part of the Parliamentary Seat! It makes bad reading for all the other parties. It shows that the Conservatives can no longer rely on the village vote - the Tory MP must be worried. Furthermore, it shows Labour have totally given up on the village vote and couldn't even put up a candidate - so how could Suzy Stride pretend to represent these people IF she won next May - answer - she can't! It also shows that neither the Green nor the Lib.Dem's are taken seriously in the villages! It's UKIP who are the real winners here - 33 votes is hardly a good majority - if 16 Tory voters had chosen to vote UKIP instead Mr. McEvoy would now be Cllr. McEvoy!
