2 Conservative 19%
3 UKIP (Alan Procter) 821
4 Green 11.85%

It was a really good election campaign where the UKIP vote doubled since last time and pushed the Liberal Democrats into fourth place in their former safe seat, signs of things to come?
There is an ongoing problem between Labour and UKIP in Moortown Ward Leeds, who will win?
Meanwhile Jenny is giving advice to be careful who you let in your home and where you put the cross in the election. You can see this on Cross In The Election by JennyC(Version3) !
Looking forward to meeting prospective Moortown Constituents thursday afternoon.

The UKIP campaign team were out and about in Moortown again on a nice warm sunny day.
A tortoise has gone missing on Church Lane, the local NHS Primary Care Trust had a meeting down Scott Hall Road and whilst campaigning we met an Hon Alderman, Penny, who let us know about some other local issues.Leaflets were found from an organisation called power of speech uk.
Issues regarding the UKIP campaign so far, are that people think there are not enough posters out and information leaflets. That will change.
Some of the Big Parties insist that councillors pay a percentage to them as a condition of being nominated.
UKIP do not do this and we candidates have to pay our own way. Even if a UKIP candidate has the money to fund a full election campaign, the election materials have to be approved by head office before publication and this can be a timescale problem.
Other questions, “Is Sharon Hamilton the wife of Fabian Hamilton MP” – Dont Know
Is Labour Councillor candidate for Chapel Allerton Jane Dowson Alan Procter’s former Partner “Yes”
UKIP MoortownCampaigning now suspended and will start again when the rain stops on tuesday afternoon.
The basic Idea for election day is to visit all polling stations and try and get you to vote.
But what else will UKIP do in Moortown Thursday? Will the Lib Dems put out thousands of tiny posters? Protest, vote Procter!

This has to be good news for the UKIP protest vote, I have never seen as many election posters before in one ward. This will really motivate people who want change.
There are Labour posters scattered down Meanwood Road, Jane Dowson for Chapel Allerton. then from Meanwood to Moortown verges are covered with Re-Elect Sharon Hamilton.
The Conservatives and AGS were there too but I only saw one Lib Dem poster.
When I saw the AGS posters near Baptist Church I thought someone had built a fence.
The UKIP lorry is going out later to take advantage of the nice weather and get more posters out following the school run.
Its going to rain heavily on election day morning, so if your voting UKIP find your brolly now.
Protest – Vote Procter – 22 May 2014!
I was out and about in Moortown today, sunny warm, people out in gardens talking.
I got the impression that most people have made up their mind who to vote for, and the only way the turnout can be changed, maybe is the weather, latest forecast for 22 May is the chance of heavy thundery rain?
There were flash floods in parts of north Leeds today, and following three nearby lightning strikes, I abandoned the campaign, and put my remaining two posters allocated on Otley Old Road.
I only have about 50 Leaflets left to hand deliver in Moortown, and the next job is to deliver and erect 270 roadside posters.
If any UKIP supporters can help the poster campaign in Moortown, most welcome but there are limitations due to election expenses rules?
There are four kinds of UKIP Moortown posters,
1) Vote UKIP Lib Dems, Labour Etc are All Same!
2) Vote UKIP old version with Procter on it!
3) Procter Poster
4) I’m Voting Ukip
Its unlikely that the local Labour Party , Big Parties, will get any roadside poster out because they think they will win,
Please support my campaign to erect at least 270 roadside posters in Moortown for a UKIP Win!
I visited the area on Friday, got the no 2 bus up Harrogate Road in the afternoon. The road was still coned off following the funeral of a Moortown resident.
Moortown Primary School is a fine stone building with a green space behind it. There has been a planning isssue regarding this and Leeds council have made an announcement regarding gifted land.
Leeds council is to consult residents on the use of this land in the near future.
When a similar issue happened in Tinshill, it was agreed that part of the recreation ground would be fenced off, and reserved for Ralph Thoresby High School.
When the school is closed, the field is unlocked and residents can use it. This compromise has worked, could this be a way forward for Moortown?
I have been campaigning in the Queenshill and Moortown areas in the last couple of days. A very positive response from people on doorstep.
Delivered lots of leaflets and identified poster sites, 136 of them! meanwhile something quite funny happened, in the Queenshills. A lot of homes threre have anti- leaflet posters up and I now understand why.
As I went around the estate yesterday lots of letter boxes had take away leaflets stuck out of them.
I respected residents views and pushed the UKIP leaflets whatever out of sight. Later on Queenshill Drive A small army of leaflet delivery persons went from house to house, big red leaflets, no it was not the Labour party, the pizza guys.
There needs to be some kind of official notice to stop fast food junk mail from people who cannot read english?
