Not elected

A very bad night for my political side and I believe for Lewisham politics in general too.

Thankfully I have a full life besides politics and plenty of things to keep me occupied, even too many.

I have no regrets, I remained myself throughout the election. People showed support and went out to vote for me, thanks to you all.

Unfortunately with the general elections on the same day many more people came out and voted for Labour, that’s Lewisham Central.

Labour is back in full control with over 40 Councillors, Lib Dems fortunately retained 12 out of 17  Councillors. The Greens were nearly wiped out, they lost five and go back to Darren Johnson alone. The Socialists of Telegraph Hill were instead completely wiped out and as I left they were recounting the votes of Grove Park, where one Tory may have won, but maybe not.

    I am so disappointed for you. And for Tamora. Such as shame that we are to be inflicted with a Labour Council – given free to screw up in Lewisham even more! To be honest I had not expected Labour to do so well in London. Most depressing.

    I hope you are not put off doing all your good work in Hither Green. The area still needs people like you.

    Hi Mo,

    thanks for the support, honestly, I’m ok about not being elected.
    I will of course keep on doing what I normally do, one doesn’t need to be elected to anything to campaign on issues and keep up community work.

    I’m of course not at all happy about those that have been elected but hey, if that’s what it takes to be elected then count me out, I’d rather be able to look at myself in the mirror.

    We’ll have a get together soon with all those that helped.

    Sorry to see you lose out – and thanks for your kind words on my site, too. I saw how you were buzzing with confidence last Monday on Blackheath, but I few people saw how strongly the Labour vote would come out on GE day.

    I think I feel the same way as you about the outcome (although the fight was certainly dirtier in Lewisham)… keep on fighting and enjoy having that extra bit of time with your family!
