National's loss is local's gain
This year I was faced with a dilemma. I didn't feel Labour deserved my vote. I didn't feel libdems could cope with my vote. And I couldn't bring myself to vote conservative. My usual, and rather amateurish (but probably most common), tactic of voting based on which leader would make the best prime minister didn't cut it. So I did something new.
For the first time I ignored national politics, and voted based on what was best for my local community. For the first time I read the leaflets coming through my door, and learned the names of my local candidate.
Is the shocking state of national politics resulting in the biggest boost for local politics for decades? Or is this new found interest in local politics a result of my maturing attitude towards politics.
