Geoff Gollop - Thank you

I should like to thank the 8,136 people who voted for me to be Mayor of Bristol. Of course, I would rather enough people had voted for me to elect me as Mayor but electors in Bristol, like so much of the country, wanted to give a message to all the mainstream political parties and unfortunately Ken Maddock (the PCC candidate) and I were on the receiving end.
