It is no good trying to make the county council elections interesting - watching paint dry has more appeal!

The question is will Ania Waterman manage to upset the polls in Eastleigh west by soundly beating her main competitor Hoping Hop. I guess with Southy's help the lead by the monster raving loony party will be unasailable and once again the TUSC will face defeat!

Interesting that UKIP win in Fair Oak when the only party to put a leaflet out here was Lib Dems. Apathy is a major area of concern with this election, does anyone understand the difference between local and county politics nowadays- in fact is there not scope to scrap the County Council and make local authorities accountable for everything in their boundaries? No doubt save double expenses as well

Well there it is then! What will Southy say about this rout, beaten into last place behind the monster raving loony party.
22 votes out of 4533. a staggering 0.4853% of the votes cast how will you explain this one..... Media blackout, wobble of the earth, people too scared to vote because of the big cat or perhaps they spent the day at one of your hidden ice rinks. Face it Southy people can see through your drivel and your postings on here whilst entertaining do nothing for the election credentials of your coalition (ops sorry me bad you hate coalitions).

I think a re vote ought to be done in Lymington as the winning candidate went out vote catching by giving out awards 2 and 3 weeks before polling day and getting her photo in the paper and visiting local schools giving out awards.or stand down she was warned the fist time she got her photo in the paper then done the same a week later ..
