    @Denizen, what rot. Where will the empathy come from? Quote Beeb: "The Lib Dems have gained four councils, winning neighbouring Kingston-upon-Thames and Richmond-upon-Thames in Greater London and South Cambridgeshire from the Tories", and WB will likely go the same. Of course, these areas are really socio-economically representative of the entire nation. Libs are just tories that can't bear to admit that is the case. Of course we could vote Labour, they've really got the interests of the majority (JAM's apparently?!) at heart. Under those eejits program, we'll be propping up giro thiefs, illegals, minorities and various other cohorts who are allowed to be "outraged" without challenge, for the rest of our days. I think I'd rather stay Blue, and continue looking up! Don't like it? Do one!

    Still too much blue, I'm surprised anyone with a shred of empathy can vote for the callous and uncaring tories. UKIP appears dead with most of their voters returning to tory (aka Newkip) as the home of the racist and bigot. Let's hope there's not as much fear and selfishness in the elections we're permitted to take part in next year.
