PM Theresa May worried about #GE2017 seat after Tories lose 100% of seats in council elections!

With all the Champagne corks a popping at Tory HQ, the Windsor & Maidenhead council election result must be extremely embarrassing for the Prime Minister Theresa May and her prodigy Simon “Dudders” Dudley as they lost 100% of the seats … Continue reading PM Theresa May worried about #GE2017 seat after Tories lose 100% of seats in council elections!

Windsor Election Twitter Campaign Analysis

Before I talk about Twitter I’d just like to thank HALF the people of Windsor for believing in me and voting accordingly… Now that might sound like Adam Afriyie’s inaugural speech but actually it’s mine?! For the first week of my campaigning I monitored how many people responded to my knock on the door… 40% of people would open the door, 99% would take my leaflet, half would say thank you and walk back inside to the safety of their nest while the other 50% would talk a while on the door step and establish my credibility for being a … Continue reading Windsor Election Twitter Campaign Analysis

Last day of my first RBWM election campaign

The last month has been fun mixing old and new methods of campaign engagement… mixing the doorstep challenge with social media engagement… One thing I read just as my campaign began was about how the Green Party had achieved 50% of the under 24 vote in the last General Election, while the Tories got 50% of the over 60 vote… This explains why the Tories main focus is on saving grandma 40p on her council tax! How very patronising but hey, it probably works. Thing is they are not that hot with social media and getting down with the kids. … Continue reading Last day of my first RBWM election campaign

House Building Using Community Shares in RBWM

Tired of enforced house building not being affordable to our kids in Windsor & Maidenhead? Then you need to VOTE for JON DAVEY your INDEPENDENT candidate in Thursday’s elections and I will research how we engage with Community Shares to build future housing stock. If the government is forcing house building probably because it’s one of the only things that has made people money in the last few years, so good for pension funds but also good for generating annual council tax! If we need to build houses then let’s build houses for our kids so they can get on … Continue reading House Building Using Community Shares in RBWM

It’s time for a change at RBWM Council

Currently we have 46 Tories, 6 Independents, 3 LibDems and 2 UKIP Councillors… You could argue that the 2 UKIP and one of the Independents are Tories because that’s what they were elected in as but then changed horses… so 49 Tories and 8 others… which means, 3 or 4 leading Tories decided what they want to happen this week and that’s what roles out! THIS IS NOT DEMOCRACY! Things need to change at the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead Council and on Thursday you can make that change by voting for something completely different. Take time to contact … Continue reading It’s time for a change at RBWM Council

“Windsor Day” Bank Holiday Celebrations 2016

Should I be successful on Thursday and win a seat as your Independent Park Ward Councillor then I’ll be looking to establish Windsor Day on the first Bank Holiday Monday in May. A day to celebrate the people, businesses, initiatives and communities in Windsor, giving the community at least one day a year that it can come together to discuss & celebrate all things Windsor. I was looking for what’s on in Windsor this morning and we have Pepper Pig at Windsor Racecourse or Star Wars at Legoland and while Windsor Races do a Family ticket for a very reasonable … Continue reading “Windsor Day” Bank Holiday Celebrations 2016

Rotarians helping the people of Nepal

DG Fred King @shelterboxuk and Mike Brown @WindsorRotary @visitwindsor collecting for #Nepal congrats Kate xx pic.twitter.com/xP9I3TIy84 — Vote Davey & De Luca (@ParkWardWindsor) May 2, 2015 Yesterday I did a 2 hour shift with other Rotarians, collecting money for the people of Nepal. There are reports of fears of the money not getting through because the government can’t be trusted… this is where the Rotary network kicks in… we’ll be giving any donations directly to fellow Rotarians in Nepal so we know it is maximised and not fleeced by greedy governments or questionable agencies. As usual, only 2% of people … Continue reading Rotarians helping the people of Nepal
