    Hehe anyone else noticed how these local election results are looking almost identical to the changes in attitude between the first and the second TSR GE?

    If you look at the second post in the Resource Page in the HoC I've put previous TSR GE stats there, and at the last election the BNP and the Conservatives gained more seats, while the Lib Dems and Labour made losses- which is exactly what we're seeing in the general population now.

    I'm willing to bet that most of these are protest votes against incompetend incumbants.

    You gonna quote every constituency that votes for some random person. These guys like BNP, EFP or whatever are fine on the local level but youd never want them on a national scale. Parties run by simple minded ignorant people.

    People are dragging themselves down to polling stations in their thousands to protest against the Government, it's quite a significant message, and one that must not be ignored by any of the main Parties.

    Seeing Parties like the BNP growing is like spotting cancer, the cause needs to be cured fast before it destroys the entire system.

    The "problem" is that none of the three mainstream parties are extreme enough, and I doubt that's a "problem" you want solved.

    One ward in St Albans was decided by the drawing of pencils apparently. Shortest pencil loses.

    Crawley council was drawn between Labour and Conservatives with one seat left, each candidate in that ward got precisely 500 votes. The two candidates had to draw lots to decide the winner and the Conservatives won.
    LOL, I seen that just then. Rather a simple way to decide ah?

    Broomhill - our candidate is a rather unpleasant individual by the name of Michael Ginn. Bit of a sleaze and has hit on several of the girls, which made me actually (for all of a micro-second) consider voting Green. However party loyalty prevailed, not that it did any good. We didn't take Dore, and both Labour and the Greens have won seats, though I don't know which yet.

    hehe, Fulwood for me. I know nothing about the ward and I won't be living here next year, but I voted Conservative anyway.

    It was basically a choice of 3 left wing Parties, a Party of 'closet racists' or the tories- not a hard choice really.

    I think it was slightly pointless though, as I went with 2 of my mates, one of them voted Labour and the other voted Lib Dem. :rolleyes:

    Our candidate there Caroline is actually really good, and should have been run in Dore as she's have wiped out Keith Hill standing there - we're just waiting to here if she's been accepted onto the party's A List of candidates for the next general election.

    11 out of 13 who stood for the BNP in Barking and Dagenham. Many gains elsewhere. West Yorkshire, another hot-spot won't even return til 2moro'.

    The 60 year strategy of making Whites ashamed for consideration of their ethnic interests while the same parties solicit and address the self-same concerns for non-White groups has failed. It had a finite shelf-life and was deeply offensive and racist, but the question is - what will replace that strategy?

    11 out of 13 elected , if 30 or 40 bnp had stood I'm scared they could have taken labours power on the council away.

    What is the cause beek? What's the cure?

    Those questions will be asked a lot over the coming days and weeks but if you think the real cause will be identified or a cure discovered you show the typical liberal faith in the states ability to manage and transform the human character.

    It might be 12/13 - there was a clerical error which might have to go to court to be corrected.
