Farewell Gordon Brown

It may be two years early (just what is the latest possible date for a General Election), but this is the end of the beginning of the beginning of the end of the brief and deeply unsubstantial premiership of a figure who was better in the shadows than the limelight of his predecessor.

And Boris wins in London - as confirmed by Tessa Jowell, in possibly her first ever honest and open statement - a mere 30 minutes ago.

The scale of the losses are immense, 331 councillors and 9 councils down takes some doing, and the resurgence of the Tories seems to have been at the expense of all the parties, so the results will take some reading and some analysis before we have the slightest understanding of what it means.

Beyond Cameron in Downing Street after the election, obviously. With a hefty majority.

I'm almost glad the Tories have done so well, and this is the kind of feeling I never wanted to have. But, Labour have lost the plot, the philosophy, and the drive they once had. And allowed Tony to subsume into the wishes of George W. And then tried to rediscover.

Too late.

This is what happens when those in control do not listen to the will of the people - a point probably totally lost on this Council.

Toad of Toad Hall might like to consider what is happening to a dull whinning greedy control freak of Calvinst stock and reflect on his future.

So nobody wants tax increases, everyone wants more services for less or no cost and everyone must live in affordable housing, with no monetary worries but having to work no more than 35 hours a week in a job that they love.

I just don't understand why the Governments and Politicians don't start listening to the will of the people. We could live in Eutopia.

SNH are culling Hedgehogs and Mink - perhaps they can cull Toads?!

Off topic, but is it true Arnish has hit the wall again?

You are glad that the Tories have done so well. Nothing new there – remember 1979? Who marched through the lobbies with Thatcher’s Tories. Yes, you’ve guessed it - The SNP. Led by the affable, decent but hugely ineffectual Donald Stewart – who incidentally, was incapable of speaking for more than 3 minutes…….Salmond wants the Etonian toff in No10. Back to the future Angus.

I said "almost glad" - a huge difference from what you attribute to me.
