32% of The people have spoken
Well it is current affairs and someone had to post it up. What a thrashing the coalition took at the local elections, between them the Tories and Lib-Dems they lost 823 seats to Labour, the icing on the cake being the return of Glasgow to Labour control. Boris may have held onto London but who gives a shite about that side show.

AH mercurial as ever Finky, it was not that many years ago you were knocking the Liebour party. The ConDems were always going to take a hammering no matter what. If their policies are the right ones, it is going to hurt getting the country back on an even keel, if they are the wrong ones we can always kick them out at the next general election, but as bad as the current crew in charge are, I do not want to see Miliband and his cronies in charge, especially as he seems to be sucking up and opening a door to Billy Lier

On the plus side, Red Ken has hung up his political boots, at last.Give a man a fish and he'll feed his family for a day,
teach a man to fish and he'll sit round on a boat all day drinking beer.

Never mind Finky, only a fraction bothered voting anyway, Mildew and cronies are still enjoying the mire left by their previous crowd and bloody Brown. Yes , at last that old RED livingstone can bow out and piss off too.

No worries I will not be rushing to get my visa debit out to re-new my membership, it was just grand to see the 'we are all in it together' clique get a trouncing. As for poor Ed the yolk was certainly on him but to be fair his response or lack of was a credit to him.
As for those who did not vote they are of no consequence.
I heard some old northern fart on the news saying, ‘my granny always told me don’t vote Labour they have no money, vote Conservative’ no doubt it made them feel more important even though they may have been on the bones of their arse.

I used to be apathetic.............these days I just don't give a fcuk.........and it's my guess many people feel that way about politics, particularly after the dogs breakfast that was the budget. As an old Irish friend of mine used to say............'It doesn't matter who you vote for, it's always the government that gets in'sent from the flagdeck..... by aldis light

It has very often been the case that the party in power nationaly loses out in the local elections.Four years ago the tories were celebrating and Labour got a hammering.It has to be said that the Coalition have brought all this on themselves by picking on the pensioners(who still take time to go and vote) to make up the shortfall in income tax plus plenty of broken promises made before the last election.You reap what you sow.Rules are the wise man's guide and the fool's Bible
