    Well done Martin, he worked so hard along with his Labour colleagues to get the vote out over the time leading up to the election. He will be an asset to the Council and knowing his fairness and co-operative background will help ALL his constituents who need him regardless of their political persuasion,

    Marek do I detect a touch of sour grapes here. Labour got over 60% of the electorate who could be bothered to vote on a cold January day. Congratulations to the winning candidate. A remarkable feat gaining such a high percentage of the votes cast on the day.

    14% of the ward electorate voted for Martin Tiedeman. And of course, 86% didn’t.

    You’ve got the votes wrong. He got 1593 votes not 2552. That was the total no. of votes.
