I am in election detox mode (EDM) - i.e long walk in the country this morning, three pints of Marston's Pedigree, Bangers and Mash at a canalside pub with the missus and a nice sleep this afternoon. Perfeck!
However, I think I can safely suspend EDM to say well done to all the candidates in the West Berkshire and Newbury Town Council election. I am sorry to the ones who were not elected.
Well done to the LibDem team. Despite a result that will take some absorbing, there were some little nuggets of gold in the results. Getting David Rendel back on the council is fantastic. Retaining largest party status ("control") on Newbury Town Council against the district council pattern was a real shaft of sunlight.
