Result! [May. 2nd, 2008|09:30 am]
Tony Grist
I have to confess I went straight to the front page of an English newspaper this morning to get the results of the local elections. The verdict- as foreseen- is that Labour did really, really badly. But then I withdrew. In the past I'd have read all the commentary I could find. Not this time. I have the information I need, thank you very much. And to show my disdain for the political commentariat I then flicked to a New Yorker article about David Lean.

Ailz checked the Oldham results. Our man, the Lib Dem Martin Dinoff- who campaigned really hard, slipping leaflets through the door every few days- won a deserved victory. You know what? I think this is the first time my vote has effected change. In the past I've either voted for dead certs (Labour candidates in safe Labour seats) or no-hopers (Labour candidates in safe Tory seats); this is the first time I've ever voted for the guy who came from behind to win.
