Nicola and I have been re-elected as Notingham City Councillors by Bridge ward.
With increased majorities.
Nicola had a partcularly commanding result – 61% of the vote.
I am definitely going to have to be nicer to people.
A point I made in my acceptance speech – pictured gloriously by the new Conservative councillor for Clifton North.
My concern now is the disappointment that many young and many poorer people will now feel having turned out to vote in the hope for a better result nationally.
Just not clear how much we can protect them with more casework, surgeries and re-working spending.
