Although winning some would be nice at the moment.
Work got in the way of me being able to do much work in either Aston or Bordesley, the by-elections caused by the vote-rigging scandal from June 2004. I did manage to get out a little in the final week and knocked on a few doors and ran a few electors to the polling station, so I can't claim much of the blame for our defeat in five out of the six seats. I was disappointed to see that Stewart Stacey wasn't able to get back onto the council - it sorely needs people with his experience and ability and having him back would strengthen the Labour group.
There's always next year.
And Tilsley? Don't go claiming that you defeated us on an issue of principle until you know what principles are.
