PS. UKIP, one of the teams that you say 'harassed' you, have just announced. Quote:-We will expand our research team to monitor the performance of these new UKIP Councillors.''
You wanted it:
Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
We'll be watching you with bated breath!
Remember: You belong to me.

I predict for the next GE for Wycombe. Steve Baker will lose a sizable chunk of his majority, UKIP will come 2nd, Labour 3rd and the Libdems....somewhere near the bottom. I also think for the local elections - The Tories will hold/lose some WDC Cllrs, Libdems will lose to the gain of Labour and Independent Cllrs. There may also be a couple of UKIP Cllrs although they aren’t very well established in the area compared to the rest of the main parties. I’m glad that the Libdems has almost been wiped out and although I am not a fan of UKIP – I’m glad that they are starting to hold the main 2 parties to account. For too long the Tories and Labour party have been dictating to us ‘plebs’ that they know best and playing a merry-go-round of in/out of power and then passing the baton to each other every few years. The Libdems were offered a chance in the last general election and they messed it up and are being punished for it. The same will happen to UKIP if they also mess up (i.e. get sucked into the Conservative Party machine, etc).

In truth = not a lot.. There is only 1 UKIP Cllr in WDC = Brian. Although he's a very nice chap and means well, I'm not happy with his performance in the last few years in Booker and Cressex. This is one of the reasons that I would look to stand again prehaps next year.

Thank you. And yes, Brian is a good old fashioned, pleasant chat.
I will leave the rest to you politicos.

Would you know about the UKIP boys elected to County? Per their agenda, have they been foxes on the Conservative hen house, or at least mild-manner mongooses?

To be honest - I think that they do a very solid job of keeping the Tories in check than the old Libdem opposition. As much as I have respect and like Brian a lot, they are in a different league and are more active in the middle of the County.

However as I'm in no political party, UKIP or otherwise - I think that they are all much the same as each-other - I would rather see more Independents standing in our governments (or Residents Associations, etc).

Sympathetic words for UKIP County Boyos is noted, but where is the tangible progress? We were promised action, dynamism! Not this!!
You slipped in an ad for Independents/Residen
ts Assoc. Fair play, cannot blame you.
On Independents/Residen
ts Assoc. policies. Do you any radical plans on improving this County? Bringing it into Anno Domini 2014?
What about pot holes, health, education, school transport, The Gap between rich & poor?
You know you can safely tell us your policies, the Tories ain't listening to nobody, Lab and Libs are stuck in a depression from Hell. And Nigel has his head stuck up the EU.

Where to start...? OK for starters = Get rid of County/District government models and create a Unitary Council for Bucks. Then let Wycombe have its own Town Council (which is the only town in Bucks that is not allowed one by the current Tory mafia). Have 3 more grass cuts a year (it was cut from x10 down to currently x5), have LAT's (local area technicians - the guys whole drive round inspecting potholes) on targets to make sure that they themselves spot and report potholes rather than leaving it to the public to report them. make sure that what happened for the last 10 yrs never happens again (i.e. no money gone into the roads only the very bear minimum), bring back the A&E to Wycombe (which has a knock on effect to the rest of the County i.e. SM always overstretched!) make our schools a million times better - study why Finland has done so well and replicate it over here. Increase Grammar schools and make sure that secondary schools are of a very high standard and kick out bad teachers including head teachers / encourage more grads to go into teaching - make it more appealing to them, etc - not that it’s to do with a County level but I think that HS2 is a massive waste of money and nothing more than a large dodgy deal for the construction companies and senior civil servants getting very large golden handshakes, etc Making voting compulsory and stopping the current system which favours the Labour and in this part of the world the Conservatives from always getting their 'man or woman' in. Having the right to kick out bad Cllrs or MP's if they are not helping people out. I could go on and on - but unfortunately I am just one person in this County that isn’t in a political party but who has seen 'people power' in action and believe it or not there are parts of the Country that have independents running Councils and the world doesn’t fall apart if it’s not being run by Libdems/Lab/Con's... The system needs change. For one thing that UKIP can have a pat on the back for is in trying to make that change, as public opinion wants it and is punishing the main parties for not allowing it to happen as it should. But - I still think that UKIP being a political party as it is, will eventually go down the same road as the other 3 main parties... you also asked about closing the gap between the rich and the poor – well this is part of the current rot that we have in our system in that big corporations back political parties to get political influence – they are the real ones controlling our society. They don’t care if we have a Labour or Conservative party in power, the big boys make sure that both sides get paid. Until the current system is stopped, nothing will change. The ones who can afford to use technology as the bigger stick will rule over those left behind with the bad education that live in the social housing or privately rented slum houses getting poorer.
