I Vote therefore I Whinge
Last post on my own voyage of voting in the local elections.
In my own ward the incumbent Conservative has retained his seat with a turnout of 33.8%. I am not surprised.
As all the candidates failed miserably to engage with the residents of the ward, two thirds of my neighbours could not be arsed to vote. Frankly, I despair with all of them.
The Council remains under Conservative control but I am encouraged that a new independent candidate has been elected. Clearly if you mount a campaign you can make a difference.
My conclusion is that I am perfectly entitled to give my councilor and the council as much grief or praise as I see fit. I voted.
