UKIP comes third in Rutland by-election

After the recent defection to it of the three Rutland councillors, UKIP must have had high hopes of last night's by-election in the Ketton ward. In the event they came third.

The result:

Gary Conde (Conservative) 330
Andrew McGilvray (Independent) 260
Liam Powell (UKIP) 130
Martin Brookes (Independent) 24

Yes, that is Martin Brookes the blogger.

It is a shame there was no Lib Dem candidate, but I believe this was the first time there had been a contested election in Ketton for 12 years.

Am I really a blogger?

24 votes from people I have never met or communicated with can't be a bad thing.

Town Council next! Nominations start on the 1st July 2013
That is bound to be a dirty contest....(not by me)
