Well that was what all the brew ha ha on friday about Mr Old Sorry Mr Young resigning from this that and the other.
I hope he wins in Clacton that way will finally get rid of him in Colchester, something I have been praying for over 20 years.
They have used the borough akin to the proverbial weekend mistress.
Coming here for work and to cream the best schooling for their children, one did not want a repetition of their own upbringing.
Our town has been the laughing stock of this bully beef and chips style of political machinating and show-boating.
I mean the poster the other week on this site who quoted"""I am late for a council meeting Officer""" Then the subsequent media fiasco that ensued in the courts.
Police only watered down the case, because it was at the peak of the "Blair babes" control of the frenzied Noughties period.
Officers outside Chelmsford crown court made a statement on national TV "We don't really like bringing a situation such as this to court however etc etc" I mean what a wash down?
This political orifice abound in the borough over the last 20 years, has had a sad and quite loss of je ne sais quoi effect on the town.
What was once a friendly together community, manifested into this political cage fighting type of aura and mentality.
You never really wanted us and we never ever wanted you our your philosophies.
The best thing to come from you was "WIFE SWAP" or in your case "You changed my life":
Mrs Leopard skin pants gave you a run for your money and pumped the old tyres up?
The work you have done on Greenstead is what it said on the tin its a Rons**l environment:
Mind you once your the MP for London's gangland weekend retreat, you can have the Boundary Commission change the areas and put Greenstead in Clacton. That way you will not be too far from home. You may not even have to move.
I am sure Boris & Justice69 sorry 79 will do some of your canvassing for you?
Hopefully its Good bye, Good Ri*****e, & Get L**t.

How anyone can justify standing as a labour candidate in a general election beats me - don't they realise the horrendously ignorant mistakes/****-ups they made during their last misrule?
Heaven save the country if by some mischance, and due to Ukip, they actually get a majority in 2015

Interesting a man convicted of Dangerous driving after running a Police officer over in Colchester in 2001 decides to stand as an MP. The trial judge said of him "You displayed that afternoon an arrogance that ill became you."
Sounds like ideal politician material, maybe if Labour get in he could get a job as Secretary of State forTransport or may Home secretary overseeing law and order as he clearly has a working knowledge of both. Still he is already on the county's new police and crime panel, maybe if they end up with elected Chief Constables he could apply for that.

Ah yes, the world banking crisis all the fault of Gordon Brown. It must be very aggravating for you to see that Labour are now continually ahead in the opinion polls and heading for victory in 2015 with or without UKIP. And that's because Ed Miliband stands up to big business and vested interest on behalf of the people of this country, whereas all the Tories do is attack the most vulnerable members of society while sucking up to the rich and powerful

It seems very unlikely that Clacton will become a Labour parliamentary constituency and I presume Young has been selected as a party loyalist who will get them some publicity and not make any big gaffs.

I note Labour are said to have a 20.6% chance of winning on the latest calculations reported in the electoralcalculus website, with the Conservatives at over 79% and all other parties at less than 1%. Possibly his prospects will increase a little when it is next recalculated, considering his local connections.

However, though he will probably 'fight' a reasonably effective campaign in electoral terms, I suspect that ultimately in cricketing terms it will be said - he hardly troubled the scorer!

Were Young serious about getting to Parliament, I think by now he would be in a more winnable candidate. It is interesting Labour have not put him up against his old adversary, Sir Bob, who a little surprisingly has chosen not to hang up his pads. Presumably he will have a fairly easy win, unless the national revulsion of Lib Dems hits him harder than might be expected bearing in mind he is such a recognisable 'local' MP.

I should have added, that electoralcalculus website gives the LibDems a 48% chance of victory with Conservatives on 27% and Labour trailing on 20%. UKIP register enough for the scorer to need to pencil in 3.5%.

Rather different to when Russell was first elected in '97 and it was a genuine 3 way split. He must really still rankle the Labour bods particularly as he was first a Labour party parliamentary candidate in Colchester in 1979 when he won nearly 33% of the votes behind Conservative, Tony Buck's nearly 53%

Young would not have been eligible to be elected as a Police and Crime Commissioner, with any criminal conviction at any age.

Police Officers and Probation Officers and other staff in both their employing organisations would only be employed after stringent examination of criminal histories, though a conviction itself is not an absolute bar.

After all probation work is, secondary to public safet, about rehabilitation. A significant proportion of all men have criminal convictions - I think over 30%. I doubt it will have much impact on the election outcome in Clacton.

Seems very strange that Tim Young who must be very popular in Colchester should stand a a Labour Candidate in Clacton. He has absolutely no chance of winning against Douglas Carswell who will no doubt increase his majority once again.Surely he must have a much better chance of winning Colchester where his is a councillor than moving elsewhere. A strange decision

maybe they just dont want him in Colchester anymore RB,
the next biggest district is our own.
when you break down the "traditional" labour voting areas here in "Clacton"
you come up with very little of substance = hence, generally labour dont do very well.
For a headline grabbing attention seeker, perhaps tiny tim will come out with stories akin too-
Its my aim to redevelop those areas roads which are described as "non adopted"
well, if tiny tim punts that about - Yawn....
been done so many times before,
by so many 5 minute famous wannabees and since the mid 1950`s still nothing has/can/will ever be done about it...

Clacton IS and always be a strong Tory stronghold. and is backed by so many monied patrons of the Clacton Conservatives who favor no one else ever!!

a very nice guesture indeed Andy, but perhaps do some homework on "poor" old Jaywick first eh lovey ...lol
firstly, it is without doubt one of the areas biggest employers with its Park resorts holiday centre,
it has a very friendly neighbourhood at the best end, near the holiday park..;)
my end of course.
it also has a now somewhat well documented Martellow Tower thats stood defiant in excess of 200 years now,
maybe thats where I/we get our derfiance from ??
its also been funded from ECC/CBC and "others" over the last near 10 years as a arts and heritage centre, and as such, does very very well.
Does your firsite intend to follow that timeline,
for over 200 years, oh "really"........ I think we both know that answer young Andy.

You see, we get lots of people who make remarks, throw insults, stand and riddicle us "poor" (sic) proud Jaywickians, but do so coz the bloke down the pub told them so...
oh really, young Andy ??

Did your total knowledgebase also include the recient £13 million spent of refurbishments, mine Included, new windows, airsouce heating, and 8inches of external Insulation, bringing them up to near modern specifications as newbuilt OR better,
oh really young Andy...
This applies to both tennented and owner occupied,
but the tennented lost out with windows & modern heating, sadly....
Me and my neighbours though, were just fine....
meanwhile those snooty types in St.Osyth are now being treated to the same type of total refurbishments thats covered our neighbourhood, but thanks for asking young Andy..
HamiltonAndy,
why dont come visit me, in my humble home, look for reason for Insults,
look for space for your failed firstsite (sic)
look for our streetlights shining brightly all night,
as I`m sure two of my friends, being the labour concillors for our ward, would absolutely thank you for increase our tourism with those lost souls who go looking for narnia at the bottom of a presently desolate, decayed area of colchester town.
Oh dear, should you worry I have Shhh Labour friends ? why yes, why not, for we are all friends here, unlike some other districts we read of..
I was also a friend of the last prospective candidate for the Nation Front,
as we are all residents, all meet (or did do) at local meetings, why not become friends.
An open outlook on life gains more thoughtfulness rather than be all somewhat secular in friendships, while differences of opinions are fought via the ballot box.
Vote Conservative in Clacton, and god bless our gracious Queen.
All other are welcome....

thats all we need, my dear friend Boris banging on my door,
along with the much misaligned justice (sic) 59/69/79 whatever.
sadly, Greenstead is one ward we no longer need adding to Golf Green,
but we have ample green space just waiting for the right builder,
we even have our own Airstrip for those fly away moments.
although all this, I actually do have friends who live there, who would love to move away from the tardiness of Colchester, into the seafresh air of Golf Green.
It would be one way of continued Labour supremacy within our voting ward - nah, think not !!

To have a realistic prospect of getting a UKIP MP in Clacton - folk will need to do far more than just vote for whichever candidate UKIP put up.

That electoralcalculus web site I mentioned earlier is predicting just a 0.3% of the poll support for UKIP in Clacton under our existing electoral system.

It takes more than keyboard bashing to change election outcomes!

And that, is exactly why our Douglas will win once again,
