10-Feb-2011 John ISON A BITTER LITTLE CHAP HE SEEMS!
I would like to associate myself with the comments of Richard and skeptyk except where skeptyk wishes you well in the local elections. Your disinterest in local governance is well known and I haven't the faintest idea why you wish to stand for the council. You say you "hope" to stand. There is nothing stopping you from standing except for a few signatures. Are you so unpopular within your community that your hope cannot be realised? As I don't have any clue as to why you seek election to your Council your inevitable defeat will be well deserved.
I'd've thought that subsequent to an article published in an interesting magazine you would have been flooded with activists and willing candidates. Should we assume that despite that excellent piece of publicity you are the only person willing to stand for ILTEUA in May? A full slate in Scotland is not plausible but if ILTEUA is a credible party a good smattering of candidates in both Scotland & Wales is essential. I would generously suggest about 5 ILTEUA candidates in both Scotland & Wales will be enough to justify the continuance of the party. A few dozen local election candidates will similarly suffice but no evidence is apparent that there will be any other than yourself.
