Our error proved to be correct about his being “Candidate Elect” after all

following his recent interview for Cottingham.tv, we wish to stress that being willing to appear on Local Social Media is important for all Candidates, not only the successful ones!

Please scroll down to see our interview ..

Europe 2.0

Town and Council Elections

Cottingham North: Councillors Ros Jump and Geraldine Matthiessen re-elected!

Cottingham North

Bucking the overwhelming trend at both the regional and national levels to vote Conservative (hence the ‘hive mind’ Microsoft logo as proposed by the editor) , independents Ros and Geraldine are re-elected as Independents. As former Conservatives, they made a courageous choice to abandon central party diktats and stand to “put Cottingham first”

Cottingham South

The East Riding returned all Conservative candidates, excepting Independents Ros and Geraldine and Labour in Hessle.

Demonstrating the halo effect of adding your promotions on Cottingham.tv

We have published interviews with Ros and Geraldine (Independents) and Alex Duke and Edward Hart (Labour). Each of those we interviewed said yesterday they did “far better than they expected!”

Labour candidate for Cottingham South Alex Duke and Parliamentary Candidate Edward Hart whom we interviewed previously also improved their votes!

Labour held Hessle (as featured in the video footage),

Nick was delighted to be invited to attend the election count  in Anlaby yesterday (8/5/2015) and he will be uploading video footage over the weekend!

Meeting David Davis at the count to offer congratulations

Whilst being delighted to engage with him and have a rare opportunity to discuss business issues relating to patents and IP infringement briefly when invited, he “Doesn’t do inventions!”

Do you feel let down as an inventor and innovator by governments and financial institutions?

If you have ever struggled with a patented idea and struggled with a business start-up against hostile authorities, we would like to hear from you.

Yes “it does make one feel pretty bloody well pumped-up about it”!

The chicken and egg problem of innovation, finance and patents

Why is East Yorkshire maintained as an ‘Intellectual Property cold spot’?

Did you know that East Yorkshire has long had the lowest number of patent registrations per head of population in the UK! The Government featured my invention for their front cover (check out the link above)!

Let’s hope David Willetts and cabinet colleagues can aim to up their game now in the new regime – or better – shift the blame onto the Liberal Democrats role in the previous regime and make a fresh start in the regions with their non-technical political leaders and sweep away their coterie of jobsworths and special advisors!

 

Answers to Cottingham.tv please

Much has changed at the National Level! Heads have rolled!

As other broadcasters said; “Politics is a brutal business!”

Europe 2.0

The Local Council Votes are being counted at Haltemprice Sports Centre from 2PM this afternoon and we hope to bring you news updates asap.

On a personal note: as a political activist and lapsed Conservative Party member, the editor has not affiliated himself to any other political party but focussed instead on representation, reform in Europe, graphics the usability and pshchology of governance and commenting.

Part 2

As soon as we switched the camera off, he opened-up and gave us a more engaging discussion, so we added this post script!

Editor’s note: –

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

Our Conservative Candidates appear to be reluctant to come forward and be interviewed, claiming we’re ‘biased by interviewing the other candidates beforehand’! But we would urge them to come forward and please support us as a local media and technology start-up enterprise which will help the region as a whole become more media savvy, especially with the advent of broadband. Come on guys, aren’t you supposed to be on the side of small business?
