Blimey, how will the old school react to so many outsiders?

I believe it will be a positive response as (IMO) the electorate has clearly said they want wider input and discussion in their local politics. Lets hope that everyone who has been successful brings forward new ideas and is proactive in improving our lives.

From my lowly position and only looking at the results for Hertford I feel there was a clear statement that the electorate, whilst in the main happy with EHDC, are looking for a Council that is more prepared to challenge central Government on issues such as building on the green belt and laying more concrete on the countryside. Cities have greater power than Districts, who get pushed around by Central and County. I feel the vote is saying people want a greater, not less than, say on what happens in their district and is looking to its Council to respect that view. There also needs to be a clearer and more open published dialogue with County which at times seems of the opinion it runs the show irrespective of what voters feel.
Wow! Care to explain exactly how you manage to divine all that from looking at these results?
