I think an awful lot of Lib Dem voters have been utterly disillusioned by the actions of Big Nick, and I think that's had a negative effect on the numbers of people voting. He's almost singlehandedly ruined any chance the Lib Dems had of being a genuine competitor to the Lab/Con parties. If you voted for them before, who the hell do you go for now? I suppose that on the plus side we won't have to put up with people banging on the'I agree with Nick' drum and telling us how wonderful he'd be if LD were voted in. Don't see so much of that now after almost fanatical support from some corners in the last GE.

I don't get what you mean, Mark.

I assume Mark means that no one contested the seat in his constituency? I may have the wording wrong there as my sleepy brain isn't 100% of the right phrasing
I know not everywhere had elections though.

Could have just said that, tbh, would have been a lot easier. You might not be on the electoral roll for all I know, so I'd rather not make assumptions. Thanks Jen.

Well, it's farewell to Red Ken. Made too many enemies and paid the price. Getting caught out over his tax affairs probably didn't help, either.

It's also what happens when everyone goes out and votes in LOCAL elections based on NATIONAL party politics that have absolutely nothing to do with it.

To me, all this round of locals has done is demonstrate a huge chunk of the general public are absolutely retarded.

Well it was local council elections - so you vote for the person who will best serve you locally.
