Shame that so many couldn’t be bothered to vote. Well done to us all who did, only just over 36%

Retained by 589 votes. In fact a majority of voters cast 712 votes and therefore will not be represented by their choice. So long as the “winner” represents his minority the he stands a good chance of being “re-elected” again.

Yep, I am not a natural conservative, but on a national level, I back Boris 100%, don’t matter what the liberal elite and state media propergander try to throw at him, people are wising up,and they don’t care about his refurbished flat,he is good for the UK and good for the union,we need strong leadership in this unpredictable world!

Hopefully you will still be saying that once the pandemic has cleared, and you will see the damage he has caused with Brexit. The Irish border is still unresolved, small businesses are struggling to export to Europe, and people will begin to see price rises everywhere!
Then we have the Tory sleaze and backhanders going on with Tory donors and mates being given lucrative pandemic contracts.
If that what makes a strong leader, god help us!

It is people like yourself, constantly talking down and bashing the UK for whatever reason, you won’t be happy until we are a third world country and you can say ‘ I told you so ‘, Boris ain’t perfect, but he is the best out of a bad bunch, and like it or not he is the choice of the silent majority! I have faith in this country and I am proud to be British, I am/was a labour voter, but they are to busy pandering to People like yourself!!!

I mean, if Borris refurbishing his flat is the only negative thing that springs to mind when you think of him, you either need to have your senses or sensibilities checked…

I think people like yourself need to grow up and think of the big picture, If you lived in a foreign country,I would expect you to realise how lucky you are to be here,he is not perfect, but who is? But he is the best we have got at the moment! End of, x

You are a proper goose – I think you mean propaganda. You may not care about the refurbished flat but I most certainly do. Sadly the days when politicians had any integrity or altruism are long gone.

Why has Love been re-elected in East Cowes? He has done a lot of bleating but achieved absolutely nothing for East Cowes. Landslip not cleared, slipways still unusable, floating farce still in place etc., etc.

Fantastic news that Dave Stewart has be booted out of control. I wonder how long it will be before he sells up and moves off the Island for good. Quickly I hope, because I’m sure a lot of people will be shouting “LOSER” in his direction.

It will take a good few years I think for the stinking brown stain he has left us Islanders to clean up. Good riddance.

Does it just show the apathy of the island residents that barely 37% turned out

I won’t be voting again until the First Past The Post system is scrapped. Complete waste of time.
I voted (as usual) yet will be represented by a candidate who achieved just 29% of the vote.
This is NOT Democracy. .

Only 893 votes cast in my ward, absolutely disgusting the remaining resients couldn’t be bothered to get off their arses and vote. Please don’t let me hear any complaints when things don’t go the way you want them too. You deserve what you get!

So 63 people in every 100 couldn’t be bothered to vote!
If you have an elected member in your ward you didn’t want AND you didn’t vote, you only have yourself to blame.

The dear lady in front of me at the polling station asked the door monitor how we vote in this part of the country! How many homes? How many votes? If that’s even legal, which it may be, then the minority is swaying geographical democratic opinion, surely….
