I've voted, and as always, not for you!

Not that there was much to go on for this election - it's a district council one, and of the four parties standing only one so much as bothered with any sort of leaflet, let alone actually doing door-to-door canvassing. So that's an easy choice then.

It was very tempting to just write "meh" in the boxes instead of marking the traditional cross...


That said, there were some well-hidden party political broadcasts for the local election:

The Conservatives want to make it very clear that they have a Plan for Britain. And Brexit was a very important part of this Plan.

Labour are using blurry video reconstructions to show that the Evil Tories have taken all your benefits away. Only Labour can save you from the Evil Tories!

The fruitcake loony closest racist party (UKIP) claim they're for the ordinary person who wants to be left alone... as long as you're not an immigrant in need of the NHS.

Finally, the Lib Dems are trying to depress their viewers with a Groundhog Day loop of Brexit/Trump news. However if you get fed up of Labour and the Tories you can escape it by voting Lib Dem.
