Deeply disappointing. So didn't want it to be him.

Sarah-Jane was unavailable for comment as her mouth was full too busy eating?

I guess mud doesn't stick after all tBG. Epic effort on the smear campaign though :-P

Upsetting to see CF has fallen to the false prophet of UKIP.

It's a landslide for Cooper and a mudslide for me.

Oh joy. Cooper wins, but the entire rest of the exec is the remains of Matt's slate.
Prepare for a dysfunctional year.

What happens to the rest of the Exec posts now?

The irony of the slate winning is that with those numbers one could argue Robinson was never going to win. Well done slate though!

Cooper's win shows that negative campaigning can work afterall.

I think this tells us that the membership is fed up with careerist Cameroons running the show. The irony is Holmes was on the right of the Party, but he made the mistake of becoming associated with the CF establishment and Chairman Howe.

Get in! Cooper will be great for CF. A real active chairman willing to do the rounds nationally. Really happy for him!

Each of Cooper's votes must have cost him about £500. I hope he feels its money well spent!

I for one can think of better things to blow £20,000 on.

He spent £4,500 not 20

By Cooper's own reconing he was spending about £500 a week. Probably more when you factor in all the drinks he was bribing people with.

Looks like Robinson took the bullet so Manning, Sewell and Corbridge could get over the finish line.

I feel for TeamJasmine. What a genuinely decent, hardworking and honest girl. She fought hard and deserved to win. CF needs to make sure to keep her involved. And SJ ought to be nice, some of the facebook comments on people's statuses are shameful. Yes, the one on Dan Valentine's page - plain rude about jasmine! What a disgrace SJ and you've only just been reflected by the skin of your teeth!

@10.02 Is that Charlie Winch? The elections are over now. No need to be bitter. Just move on.

@ Anon 2.05.

No, genuinely not. Sadly I'm losing my TBG comment virginity now though...

Just looked at that Dan Valentine thing, he'd said something like "all the candidates who attended won" and SJ said "those that stayed til the end", I think she was only pointing out the obvious, Jasmine was there but lost, ok she was there at the beginning but then rudely left not even halfway through. Nothing wrong with honesty.
If you still really want to smear people, just get your head out of your arses and kiss the seats you could have had if you wern't so negative all of the time.

Dan Valentine is too old to be hanging around with CF. He's a fucking weirdo.

Well if we're being honest I think you'll find jasmin left to go to another Tory event that evening! She said it was the Bright Blue thing with the MP she worked for when I spoke to her. There was a clash and she quietly departed after saying hi to people. The only rude departure was SJ's at the ybfrally!
