A great day for democracy.

Well done to the "NO" campaigners and a great big pat on your own back Nick.
The people of Darlington have decided.

Obviuosly dont agree with the last sentiment, but hopefully the closeness of the vote will make some sit up and take notice.


Least I was pretty close with my prediction for 60-40 for the NOs!

I see it as practice for round 2!

Yes why not waste another £100,000 of council tax payers money on another referendum on the backs of a very few disgruntled people who really should try to get out more...

Nick for Mayor?

Aeres said...

Not a waste of money in my opinion. It must be a good thing that structures can be challenged in this way.

That said, that should be it for now and the town should move forward from this. I don't think there can be another one for another 5 years anyway which sounds about right as a minimum.

I didn't have a strong opinion either way to be honest, but I'm pleased to see that the result was reasonably clear cut and provides a mandate to move forward.

"why not waste another £100K" clearly it didnt bother you when it was wasted on other things like the PHart for example!

I dont think 7000+ yes voters warrants the word few!!

Are you by chance a "No" voter?

The tiny bunch of John Williams haters behind this have wasted everyone's time, effort and money on a hare-brained scheme, just to oust a popular and hard working council leader.

These selfish folk manipulated the democratic process to force this unnecessary, expensive debacle without regard to the detriment it would have caused the residents of the borough.

This was a vote of confidence in John Williams and a giant raspberry to these deluded troublemakers and malcontents.

If only all that effort and money these one-dimensional people had expended had been channelled into doing something positive, instead of negative...

Once again another brave anonymous poster says....

"wastes everyones time and money on a Hair brained scheme"

That rings a bell will look it up in the dictionary under PHart!

This same brave anonymous poster goes on with more twaddle....
"This was a vote of confidence in John Williams and a giant raspberry to these deluded troublemakers and malcontents."

Hardly a giant raspberry with a difference of 3K or so, more like a GIANT WAKE UP CALL, as to just how close he came to being ousted!

For my part in this so called "debacle" I still ask why the need in the first place if he was doing such a good job as you anonymously suggest?

So in sumation I may be "one-dimensional" but if it has forced a change to the way things are now done it has all been worth it!

Wrong again, Ian.

Would that be Peter Barron's "pet" Echo?

Hardly the font of un-bias reporting when it comes to his pals at DBC!

How many were in this survey? 6, and all Labour councillors?

I dont recall being asked?

I White, Anoyimous said...

I cant be right all the time!

Pity others cannot admit when they were wrong!

Paul Leake said...

That there was an actual informed decision by the electorate which wasn't a walk over for either side, and with proper campaigns on either side suggests that DBC was right to have a referendum this year, despite there not being enough signatures this time round to force a referendum. There have been plenty of polls around the country where really tiny groups of people have got a referendum, done very little to campaign and been beaten massively. Now people have a few years to see what comes of promised improvements to the current system. Democracy working for once.

Leave "Cookie" alone.

You were beaten fairly and squarely.

Your web site did a great deal to help the "no" vote but only you cannot see it.

Perhaps I can't but I will never trust anyone who wants to close a top performing school, after promising it would stay open!Betrayal of trust is bad but when those who represent you do it, it is dispicable!

This was the start of the rot and now hopefully that message has finally reached home and sank in!

Personally I think you would of been singing from a different sheet if the yes vote won.

Like I have said many times, I now think its time for JW to retire as leader with dignity, anyone who has not got the messsage by now is not in touch with the people they are meant to represent.

The Labour party in Darlington has been harmed so much by his over stay as leader, lets get the town back in safe hands, this means a change of leader and for one who will listen not just pretend to.

Its done, its over, No's won fair and square...nows the time to move onwards and upwards!

THE END (on this issue)
