The Tory party has been decimated in the local elections. Labour aren’t faring too well either. The destruction could have been worse if it wasn’t for a severe lack of choice. The real demonstration of disquiet will come from the European elections. At least the people of Fleet had a choice – they could have voted for a Monster Raving Loony councillor in the form of Howling ‘Laud’ Hope. He suggests voting for ‘none of the above’ – maybe that needs to be the name for a new political party. The new third force in British politics.
