For those eager readers waiting for full analysis of this years Rotherham local government elections, disappointment, I am afraid is inevitable! It takes time to do this.
The highlight of the night came at the very end of the counting session, with the declaration of the result for Anston & Woodsetts ward.
Clive Jepson, the doughty Independent, had beaten Darren Hughes!
What the voter giveth, they can take away again!
Selling out Anston’s green belt to the Brethren Cult, was never going to make Darren popular! It’s that kind of place, that and the simple fact, that they wouldn’t be taken for fools! Not twice!
Elections can be wonderful occasions! Revenge of the ‘duped’, perhaps? Or even Rotherham’s very own ‘Portillo’ moment?
More on this story later, when I wake up properly!
The results are here on the RMBC website.
