Thanks for your support

The elections results brought to an end two decades of being an Uckfield councillor for me, and other Lib Dem councillors throughout Wealden were also defeated.

May I use your pages to thank all those who have supported us over the years?

Without active participation by “ordinary” people democracy is at risk.

It is also at risk if people do not feel represented.

Although David Cameron has enough seats to form a government, the electoral system is creaking, if not quite broken.

It is worth remembering that 63 per cent of the electorate voted against the Conservatives.

Again, thank you to those who supported us.

Alan Whittaker,

Chairman, Wealden Lib Dems
