    I take that as a compliment from the master of the unintelligible post.

    The Lib Dems went both ways, some migrated to red and some to blue. They were often a protest vote, you may be angry with red but don't want blue so you vote yellow. Now we know yellow will bend over for anyone everyone went back to red/blue, and it was a pretty even split by the look of it.

    Unbelievable and they couldn't even choose the correct labour candidate either.

    33% of eligible voters didn't take a few minutes to vote. People go to war, fight, die for the right to have their voices heard. The Great British public say that their vote wont make a difference or they are not interested in politics.
    If you have children do you want the best education for them? If you get cancer do you want to be told that your treatment costs too much and your life isn't worth the cost ? Do you have an elderly parent or partner who might need care to live at home?
    Political decisions affect everyone's life day in and out, a third of the population feels disconnected from society. This situation is sad.
    This is a pointless post, election is over...hold tight, the country will get what it voted for.

    I asked a number at work on what they thought about the election last week. Most were fed up with how long the campaign was but they had an opinion and were going to vote and we had some good discussion.
    Others weren't interested. One said 'What election?'! Another said that if he had knowledge of politics he would be a politician rather than a welder! Another said that he never watches the news nor reads any newspapers so has never voted. I sensed that these people felt out of their comfort zone and were a little intimidated by the need to form an opinion.
    Likewise a couple were strident in being 'a Labour Mon' who had never voted or considered to vote for anyone else, likewise my Dad who is a 'True Blue' and never voted for anyone else. I can understand that mindset of surety of believing in an ideal or an organisation but that blind loyalty leads to people being taken for granted.

    Perhaps he meant we'd all be forced to exist on what meagre produce we are able to produce in our gardens.

    Not a major source of felicity 'for all', but it may suit some in Kendal.
