I want to take a moment to say a massive thank you to the people of Clacton, Frinton and Walton, who chose to go out and support me to be our MP.
Unfortunately, we did not make it this time, but that is not to say that we did badly.
In the 2014 Clacton by-election, we came fifth with 1.3%, this was improved slightly in 2015 where we got 1.8%, but still came fifth.
In 2017, we came fourth with 2%. But in 2019, we held our deposit, with 5.8% and came third, our best result for ten years and a sign that we can begin to rebuild in Clacton, Frinton and Walton.
So now, the fightback needs to begin with 5 years of hard work before the next election.
