I would like to congratulate Michele for the new job and I wish her all the best at council.
for Ukip I would just say this: to you who hae wasted all these votes you must be feeling very frustrated this morning: Well done!
As for the 475 people who voted for Victor Eni I have the greatest respect, you wanted a change for this ward sadly we didn't get in this time but I have the outmost respect for all of you who tried!
Victor will not be out of the picture that easily, believe you me this story is to be continued....

WatfordMan could there be a tad of jealousy in the air? At least Mr Eni stood up for what he believes in, your comment is just pathetic and pointless.

Congratulations to Labour on their win but why is the Conservative candidates wife so bitter and sneering towards the UKIP candidate and all the people that voted for UKIP?

Labour? Some people never learn. Wish them well but I hope those that voted them in are now prepared for council tax rises and a reduction in quality of the services around the borough.

Labour will not be able to do anything that does not suit the ruling Conservatives, 34 Conservative and 5 labour councillors.

We have now witnessed another example of cowardly behaviour by 'bwood ukip' masquerading as Hertsmere UKIP and exploiting the anonymity of a pseudonym to abuse Victor Eni the former Conservative local election candidate.
The political status of the person standing for election is less important than their offer of service to the community by engaging in local activities.
Sadly others who have supported this abuse, who unlike Victor Eni, also find the need hide in the obscure corners of anonymity, should be equally and thoroughly ashamed of themselves.
UKIP may not carry the torch for the Conservative Party but we respect Victor ENI and the other candidates who fought their campaign without the need to resort to the despicable and deplorable practice of telling lies to smear another Party.
The Labour Party unable to come to terms with the growing popularity of UKIP not only locally but nationally told lies about UKIP and embarked on a smear campaign in Boreham Wood by producing an election leaflet containing misleading claims about UKIP policies.
Meanwhile, back in Cowley Hill the silence is becoming louder as Councillor Harrison, Leader of the Labour Group, prevaricates over the allegations made by Victor Eni that she confronted his 12 years old son.
This failure to either deny or respond to this allegation by Councillor Harrison has added credence to what is now beginning to emerge as a prima facie case of guilt by choosing to remain silent?
The following evidence may now prove to be admissible in the circumstances?
While handing out leaflets in Shenley Road during the election, Councillor Ann Harrison walked passed as I was responding to questions from a resident about UKIP policies.
Unable to control her arrogance and contempt for the right of the resident to make enquiries about another Party, Councillor Harrison shouted the following comment: 'Don't believe a word of what he says its all bloody lies.'
When I identified the person who made the comment and her status within the community, the disbelief of the resident followed by words of condemnation are almost unprintable in a family newspaper?

The comment by' Believe in better' claiming that 'bwood ukip' is a member of UKIP, is just another pseudonymous critic sulking in a dark corner, grouping for something intelligent to contribute, safe in the knowledge that neither accuracy or accountability are compulsory.
However, if 'bwood ukip' is prepared to cast aside the sinister cover of anonymity, on being found to be a paper member of UKIP we would assist this lost soul to find asylum in the local Labour Party where the need for the prefix of being 'political' is even less important?
