Wycombe Wonders!

For those that do not know that I stood for the UK Parliament in High Wycombe in 2005, please excuse my absolute delight at this local election result:

Totteridge Ward

Steve Guy (Liberal Democrat) 733
Tim Hewish (Conservative) 408
Ian Bates (Labour) 214
Spoilt Papers 3
Turnout 31%

Liberal Democrat gain from Labour.

Hearty congratulations to Ian Morton, Chairman Wendy, the team and Councillor Steve Guy!

Update:

My "Aunty Rosemary" took the Aboyne and Upper Deeside from the Conservatives on Aberdeenshire Council. In Inverness we gained just short of 60% of the vote and there were big wins in Redbridge and Waverley too.

It really was a very good night for the Liberal Democrats.

Cicero, your thoughts always encourage us. When you were our PPC you inspired us and we haven't forgotten the impact that you had.
