    It is what I wrote earlier.

    I love that you label my main point worrying. UKIP is dying and the far-right party that it has become is being resoundingly rejected by even its former supporters!! (In fact - even its former leader!)

    That you appear not to like that fact speaks volumes :eek:

    UKIP is totally dead - not dying

    Not even foam-in-the-mouth Daily Express readers will vote for them any more.

    The Brexit project is grounding to a halt.

    Results are in for ours, district council=no overall control, Town Council, unsure as still 1 result to come, but looks 50/50 Tories and Lib Dem with 1 Indie and 1 Green.

    I mostly agree with this part. They do still have a few elected representatives knocking around though - just not many.
    Sadly, I'm less sure of this one.

    The last Tory was removed from my city council on Thursday

    We are now officially a Tory Free council.

    I used to live in a borough that became Tory free. I didn't notice any improvements.

    or you could do what i did with Conservative/Labour Better together lies that dropped through my door in 2014, tear it up perhaps into a message like - Stop sending me lies, find out the branch office and post it back to them without a stamp or return address - a continued automated request for postage will follow its wonderful admin work

    Our local council was elected last week, and a new Mayor chosen. Their first act? To make all the staff at the local community centre redundant (& have them marched off the premises immediately) and announce that the centre would be taken over by the management group of a sports centre in another local town. Then we read the new Mayor has business links with that management company...:eek:

    Local politics, doncha' just love it? ;)

    Do you live in Northampton?
    Oh - forgot - elections there were cancelled to save money.
    Pity about the £10 million loaned to the Northampton Town FC to build a new stand, which 'disappeared' into the pockets of the now (apparently) bankrupt Chairman of the club. The Council, of course, approved the loan. That same (Tory) Council should have been subject to elections last week.

    Correction 8 Tory and 1 Labour, so Lib Dems are the majority party but have no overall control.
