I gather all the Gordon Brown and Co admirers...

...are suffering from deep shock, as I can't find any thread about the local election results.

Looks as if it's going to get worse later today - some bookies are already paying out those who backed Boris, hours before the winner is declared.

I think it is a case of:

Gordon Brown - give up and go home. You are costing your party votes.

The only change where I live is that the Conservatives have lost a seat and the Lib Dems have gained one.

Life goes on pretty much as before.

it could not have happened to a nicer fellow, Its about time he took the earplugs out.

Just seem GB on TV news saying he will listen and act-- shame he didn't do that before now.
In reality I suppose not much will change unless some of his backbenchers get some backbone and vote down items which are allowing the government to get their hands deeper and deeper into our pockets. I suspect some might do so now to try and avoid being thrown off the gravy train.
It's OK for those that can pass on the costs of this relentless increase in taxes and prices but a large number can't do that and are seeing
below inflation rate increases in income erode their standard of living on a daily basis.

It's no wonder people are saying in effect enough is enough.

Well, I have always voted Labour since I was given the vote.

I can't see that happening anymore.

Unfortunately, I can't see any other party worthy of my vote?

I imagine you will have two years to make up your mind!!

Much as i have been chuckling to myself all day at the beating handed out to Labour last night, i still think Ken will retain London. Would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see Boris take it but i can't see it happening, would be great to be wrong though!

You will be feeling great, like so many of us are already, ere long...:-)

but do it in a mature fashion. Any further comments along the lines of "The Gordon Brown and Co admirers" will be deleted. This isn't a party-political forum, and it's not necessary to make silly, provocative references like that, or to indulge in schoolboy triumphalism.

You lot must have a very short memory that's all I can say.
