    This result just shows how utterly stupid the first past the post system is. If you add up the non-right-wing vote (Labour + Lib Dem + Green + Trade Unions/Socialists Against Cuts) it comes to almost double the Tory. Personally, I can stomach either Labour or Lib Dem but detest the Tories, and know many people who feel the same way. I'm grateful for the change in council administation and glad I picked the right candidate to tactically vote for this time (what else can you do under first past the post) but I personally feel Linda Norris is completely irrelevant as any form of local representative. It was a wasted opportunity to not reject first-past-the-post a year ago.
    Meant to say "more than double". D'oh !!!"
