I would especially like to thank Andrew Brons, Robert Storey, Peter Westwell, Steve Smith, my wife and all the party people in Leicester and Yorkshire who have assisted me in the campaign, and not forgetting the Waterside Ward, Colne residents who nominated, assisted and voted for me.
I see It as a small crack in a very large shell, but we are now more determined to keep chipping away, a possible ray of sunshine is that the Tories will find it almost impossible to renege on the promised EU referendum; even when the penny drops that their policies were not the catalyst for their widely unexpected majority but more likely the on going televised European invasion from North Africa & our people have realised it is time to pull up the EU drawbridge.
Withdrawal from the EU is a single issue that can unite many & is currently favoured by the electorate, the pro EU factions know they will have to & will unite to increase their possibility of winning. This time we must not allow them to snatch a victory from the jaws of defeat through the Nationalist disposition to self destruct.
