Today, Thursday 4th May, is Local Council Election Day!
Time to wandering down to your local Polling Station and cast your votes for your local councillors.
Not only is this important for your local area but the results of the local elections can have major effects on the National Parties across various issues - not least of which is how the leadership of the party is doing. Rightly or wrongly (and to be honest it's wrong as council elections should be about local issues) Council Elections do have an impact on the National scene. All you'll have to do is read the press on Friday morning to see that.
So go and use your vote however you see fit.
I think it'll be an eye opener this year with certain small parties doing surprisingly well, with Labour getting a real kicking and the Tories loosing some, winning some, but ending up slightly better off come Friday morning. The real political winners will be the LibDems, The Greens, The BNP and Independent councillors is my prediction though.
Anyway, stop reading this drivel and VOTE!
