Thanks, I still support your re-election even though we will differ on
this one ;)

I know some that would say you want all the cake and eat it all too, but
that's fine with me, as basically its the independent local groups that
do all the hard work anyway (I spend a considerable amount of time with
one of them in such ways), I know that some  want to retain their
separation from an organisation that LA direction is heading towards, it
was discussed some time after some  saw the attempt by previous council
to change the name of LA. I also am aware that there are many  people
either on current, past councils and current candidates, that feel the
same way as you, so I know the change is inevitable.

All the best.
