Lewis Atkinson wants to be elected!
I was drawn by my stat counter to the fact that I had received one single visitor from the website of Lewis Atkinson, Labour's "wannabe" in Cleadon and East Boldon next May.
It must be difficult for the Labour Party to enthuse anyone about fighting this ward (which is traditionally Conservative) so I must take my hat off to this young fellow, he has created a website to help publicise himself and allow electors to stay in touch with him. I think this site is in it's infancy, and we therefore have to assume that "content" is to follow. It tells us very little about young Lewis, his age. or occupation. It tells us that his village needs a stong voice, but, as yet, little else.
Lewis probably knows that I am not a natural supporter of New Labour, but what his site does tell us about him, is that he is a big reader of Curly's Corner Shop!
Thanks for the link Lewis, I hope you enjoy your election campaign and that you learn much from the experience, democracy needs more young men and women to "have a go"!
Speaking of Cleadon Village, I learn that our occasional contributor, Cllr. David Potts is once again extending his political ambitions north of the border. Having had a taste for the fight at the last General Election in Falkirk, (where he almost doubled the size of the party's vote) he is to seek election to the Scottish Parliament next year. I can only imagine that it must be part of a personal development plan to encourage the Tory party to eventually find him an attractive seat to win for them at the next General Election. There you are then, two ambitious young men in Cleadon!

I've been pondering over the contents of my first post for a few days, but you've brought the issue to a head so I've taken the plunge and made my first post - check out www.lewisatkinson.co.uk
Further updates to follow - as I say on the site, I'll hopefully be posting a few times a week, and look forward to getting into some good debates with you and others in the coming months.
