This sounds good ...

Quote:
The Conservatives have made the biggest gains by a governing party in a local election for more than 40 years.
With five weeks to go to the general election, they gained more than 500 seats and seized 11 extra councils.
The gains mainly came at the expense of Labour, which came third in Scotland, and UKIP, which lost all of its seats. The Lib Dems failed to make headway.
Polling expert John Curtice puts the Tories' national vote share at 38%, Labour 27%, Lib Dems 18% and UKIP 5%.


Though I don't understand how you can have an election before the election?

:D

Local election, so all the county and district councils. The guys who get to mismanage who takes the bins out and that sort of thing.

Apparently they really enjoy "having elections" over there; more than we do! Which is a bit puzzling given we fought them to get our "freedom" to have elections and what not :mrgreen:

Anyway, it all seems pretty damn democratic to me, and even their _worst_ statesmen at least present the appearance of being more professional and capable than ours . . .

ROFL

omg what a train wreck. Some of the other congressmen listening to those semi-coherent rants must think of them as comic relief.


:lol:
