Election news

The polling is over and the local election votes have been counted.

I am very proud to have been elected to serve my home parish of St Enoder and to have received such support from local people. The full result was:

Dick Cole (MK) - 927
Jacqui Fair (Con) - 177
Keith Wonnacott (Lib Dem) - 91

In total, Mebyon Kernow won three seats. Andrew Long won a resounding victory at Callington and Stuart Cullimore picked up Camborne South by 20 votes.

I have yet to study the results in detail, but a number of MK members managed some good results and some achieved solid second places.

I will blog again soon with more thoughts on the results and, of course, the European Election result which will be announced on Sunday.

Yes, congrats are definitely in order. Good to see MK firmly on the map, and putting Kernow on the map.

Yes, well done Dick! Not sure about the futile effort of putting up CJ up against Bert Biscoe though.

MK will need to make friends among independants and win them over if it is to succeed. This will not have helped.
