Blue Tide Sweeps Away Rickster

The official residence of the Mayor of Welling

They will be taking the Charlton memorobilia down from the walls of Welling Town Hall today after Councillor Rick Everitt lost his seat on Bexley Council. The former Valley Party activist was swamped by the blue tide that swept across London.

The Rickster polled 860 votes, 374 votes behind the least successful Conservative. He came second among the Labour candidates, suggesting that there was perhaps of a less Charlton effect when he was first elected.

Elsewhere in Bexley former Charlton supporters' director Wendy Perfect lost her seat in St.Michael's Ward. The Orange Juice party was not successful in any ward.

The defeat has its bright side as it should give Rick more time to develop the Valley Express service, affectionately known as the Rickshaw
