Yes I know it’s political but this is very important, and I want this to stick in the throats of people who voted labour last time: :D


Elections 2009 and labour are not doing very well at all.

They’ve lost their strongholds in the MEP and local counsel election.

Labour has lost Staffordshire, Lancashire and Derbyshire councils to the Tories in a series of damaging defeats in traditional strongholds.
Staffordshire has been controlled by Labour since 1982 while Derbyshire's loss means it passes out of its control for the first time since 1977.
It lost Lancashire, another historic heartland, for the first time since 1981 and may also lose Nottinghamshire.

Now look at the map:

That’s a lot of blue.

Them losing ground in the north is like the Republicans loosing Texas :shock: . It isn’t going to happen until the Republicans are all but over.



Along with Parnell (his own minister) telling him to go.

James Parnell has stepped down from the cabinet and told Prime Minister Gordon Brown to "stand aside".
In a letter to several newspapers, the work and pensions secretary said Mr Brown's continued leadership made a Tory victory "more, not less likely".

Brown is really struggling as well because all that’s been on the news is about him resigning.


Live news feed I’m not sure if people outside the UK will be able to watch it because it’s on the BBC and all.

there is a conference starting at 4:30 (BST) so I’ll give you an update when it’s done.

Brown has apologised.

:shock: :shock: :shock:

He said that he was sorry. He’s never said that! :shock: :shock: :shock: :lol:

So far it’s just a load of spin though. :roll:


More to come. :D

This is nothing short of revolutionary! It's even worse for Labour than predicted. Brown is stubborn, though, he isn't gonna quit no matter how bad the results. Too bad, his government is just plain embarrassing to this country. Apparently though he still has too much support for the queen to step in and dissolve it without being seen to meddle in politics. I say go ahead ma'am and do your country a favour. We need a new elected government now!

Even though the queen can step in a get rid of them she wont because you’d get people moan about it. I agree with you, Brown’s an embarrassment and should be kicked out along with his cabinet.

People who voted for labour last time must be wondering what has gone wrong, they were going fine then the tosser got in and didn’t call an election.

If he had called an election when he got in he’d have had a good chance of winning. :roll:

Results in and the Tories got thirty out of the thirty-four Councils up for grabs.

Tories: 30. That is a gain of 7

Lib Dems: 1 with is a loss of 1

Labour: 0 they lost all four councils that they had.

Three were no overall control between the tories and the Lib Dems,

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/bsp/hi/e ... ml/map.stm


Where I’m living (Hertfordshire) we have:

55 Torie councillors

17 Lib Dems councillors

3 Labour councillors

1 green ( :lol: :lol: :lol: the joke party :lol: :lol: :lol: )

And last (and least) 1 Nazi. What a shame they got anything. :x


The MEP results are going to be coming in on Sunday so I’ll post there results then. :D

It's been worse. Not for a long time but it been worse.

The amazing part about this is that labour doesn’t do this sort of thing apparently. Labour don’t attack the leader like this, this is the sort of thing that the Tories do.

You know when labour is attacking their leader like this that it’s all over red rover.

This is almost normal for the Tories though. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Amazing. Not one labour controlled local council in the entire country. :o :D

New Labour is dying on its derriere, and about time too. People finally realise they never were the same socialist party of old, and figure that if they're gonna vote for a conservative party, it may as well be the ones honest enough call themselves such.

Shame the Liberals didn't gain anything with all the commotion going on, but I'm glad to see the Greens making political headway. I think they'll do even better in the european elections.

Sad to see the BNP getting seats, but that's democracy I guess. Their party political broadcast was unintentionally funny, it was so archaic. It was like watching an episode of Dad's Army crossed with Till Death Us Do Part. :lol:
