Wayback in May, AiB was talking about another election

I put into the Wayback Machine. Surprisingly, it had an archive of the site from May 4 2006.

And the main topic being discussed?

Elections. Of the English local council variety.

Looking back, I’ve just noticed that I made a comment at the end of Monday 1 May’s post ...

“Roll on the day that Northern Ireland politics can match the example of Gloucester, allowing local councillors to campaign on local issues - and be forced to participate in local issues in local areas in order to prove their worth and garner support at the ballot box.”

While we’ve come a little closer during this election to local parties having real policies on real issues, we’ve still a long way to go.

Happy polling. Early, but not too often. The lampposts need a better break between elections.
