Cleobury Mortimer: Is this the end?

In case you were worrying, the Shropshire Star reports that:
Voters were out in force today to elect a new parish council for a town plunged into chaos when four civic leaders resigned. Residents from Cleobury Mortimer and surrounding villages were voting throughout the day.
Will it work? One of the "civic leaders", Adrian Pearce is quoted as saying:
"The new council will have two years to show the people that it is doing what the public expects. If it fails, residents will have the chance to elect a different council in two years time."
G. K. Chesterton writes:
But we are the people of Cleobury Mortimer, and we never have spoken yet.
Mock at us, pay us, pass us; but do not quite forget.
