A new hope.

Well it seems that the Labour stronghold of Crewe & Nantwich has fallen. Read here. This must mean that Labours hold over the electorate has been weakened.

The people were not fooled by the political rhetoric and for the vote to change by 17.6%, turning a 7000 Labour majority into a 7800 Tory majority, must mean that Labour supporters also made a stand rather than just not voting in protest. That says a lot about the public.

Now, after the people have made their voices heard and, theoretically, Labour is listening when can we expect Gordo to announce a general election?

Oh wait! They are already making excuses and giving speeches on what it means. Seems those ticks in a box tell many stories depending on who is reading them. To Labour they are telling them to continue but concentrate on the economy (Don't remember hearing about that box), and to the Tories it is a sign they are back in favour (Didn't hear about that box either). Politicians really are scum of the earth.

As usual I speak generally. I suspect that with the thousands of politicians out there there are a handful of decent ones. Perhaps that bit of totty standing at Crewe for one. :)
