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.
