Well, you knew I would have to be the first to mention it...

What there's an upcoming General Election? :wink:

Well if the turn out amongst the under 40's exceeds that for those over 50 we may see some change - otherwise it will be 'same old, same old'.

Good luck with it - I have applied for a postal vote - which will keep the local Tory majority to about 12K - a pig with three legs would win round here so long as they wore a Tory rosette.

Have always been a fan of some kind of proportional representation - but that boat sailed in 2011 - was just looking at the Wikipedia page re the AV Referendum - and was dismayed that turnout was 42% overall and locally nearer 20%

Would be happy to see an increased turnout due to younger folks casting their votes in droves - as these folks have the power but don't realise it.

Ramble over...

For the next seven weeks, I will be on my soapbox. You have proper warning...

I fear a dirtier than usual campaign, with Blair blinkered Labour MPs shitting in their own nest. I see Blair has decided May's Brexit agenda is all that matters when the issues that need addressing in or out of Europe are what Corbyn is trying to address. The bias is already pouring out of the media and its master Twitter. Nick Robinson is the epitome of smug commentators asking for detail from Corbyn but allowing May to waffle at will about stability and the main detail we have so far is a chancellor whose central initiative in the budget had to be scrapped and we still have a massive hole and a crumbling structure in our care provision.
