Although not of my political persuasion, Norman was a first rate MP. He was passionate about what he did, always made himself available and was well respected among those who had dealings with him both as a Minister and at local level.

There you go Norman, perhaps next time you will look after your constituents rather than sell your soul.

Appalling. We have lost an excellent constituency MP. We have a woman who virtually never set foot in Lewes and her contribution in Viva Lewes was pathetic. Heaven help us and the NHS.

Its all about house prices mark my words. Where ye constituencies have huge rise in the value of their property they will turn to the dark side of conservatives.

A new MP was voted in, winning by over 1000 votes and suddenly we get numpties on here slagging her off before she's even done anything. It's a done deal so let her get her act in gear before you start attacking her. Well done Maria!

revolted, repulsed - a travesty of a system. ruled by the stupid, selfish 36% of the electorate. Thanks Scotland, thanks a bunch. No wlet's sit back and watch the poor suffer for the pleasure of the rentier classes. May your house prices and your portfolios burn in hell!

Baker has lost because of wholehearted rejection of tactical voting . They are being rejected because they went into government and supported the Tories.

Belladonna - If going into government with the Conservative Party is so bad then how come ..... I think Labour may wish to reconsider its choice if leader and its back to basics NHS scare stories, its relationship with the Unions and its dependence on the anti English vote .
What I want now is a period of moderate stable and fiscally cautious government which will be good for us all .

My house price will rise, along with the rest of Lewes. I still wont be able to move around Lewes for this reason so i do not see my house price rising a bonus. What i do see is more of my firends moving out of Lewes and a NHS which will be in a sorry state. Norman may not have been everyones cup of tea but at least with him things did not look so bleak and we knew where we stood. I hope that the non voters in Lewes (and the rest of the UK) will now see how important it is to vote and in 5 years we are looking at a different picture. Unfortuntley, i think that those who will be hit the hardest (and who were less likely to cast their vote) will now look at things and see that they are screwed and it will back up their view that there is no point voting

As I said in another thread, Maria Caulfield SUPPORTS FRACKING!!! And NHS PRIVATISATION!!!
She said as much last month at the hustings at All Saints. I hope all of you who voted for her and are wallowing in your increased house prices, are happy about that.
As to the rest of us, be afraid. Be very afraid.

I am now officially embarrassed of where I live. I have loved living in Lewes for many years. But I am now struggling to look at people in the street, fearing that they may have voted for this evil party. We should be very ashamed.

Old Man, not sure why 'bonkers' when I'm simply stating fact. Btw the CONSERVATIVES have just completed the LARGEST sell off in NHS history - £780 MILLION pounds worth of contracts to 11 firms. Let's hope you can afford to sick
