A bigger outrage that even more people voted for the Christian party than BNP - where the hell did that come from?

Brockley Kate said...

Those billboards were clearly good value.

"I'm a Christian and I've got a voice, I'll vote for 'em!"

Christ, even the Mung Bean party made it to 2nd place. Truly a sad day for politics.

Tressilliana said...

Thanks for this, Kate, I was wondering if these figures were available. 31% voted. 69% therefore didn't. Good grief.

Monkeyboy said...

Har...!! he said Mung Bean... snicker....

I voted Christian, ironically obviously.

Thank God for the Christian Party and their determination to keep the BNP out.

Homer: Well, there's not a bear in sight. The Bear Patrol is sure doing its job.

Lisa: That's specious reasoning, Dad.

Homer: Thank you, sweetie.

Lisa: Dad, what if I were to tell you that this rock keeps away tigers.

Homer: Uh-huh, and how does it work?

Lisa: It doesn't work. It's just a stupid rock.

Homer: I see.

Lisa: But you don't see any tigers around, do you?

Homer: Lisa, I'd like to buy your rock

No probs Tressiliana, I've been looking for these figures since Sunday!

How did that christian party billboard get past the advertising standards agency?

Telling fibs when Moses told you not to is a bit wrong I think. Makes that walk up the hill he did a bit pointless.

So who actually got seats in the impossible to understand voting sytem?

Brockley Kate said...

Seats are allocated London-wide, not by council.

The London results are on the BBC news website, the basic story is that there's been no change on the previous election.

Am sat in a half empty office feeling smug for choosing to live South of the River.

Got train into Charing Cross walked to my office in 15 mins arriving at the normal time.

All the north Londoners only just begining to drift in with tales of nightmare journeys.

Tee Hee....

Some useful percentages and context:

Labour - 26.26% (DOWN 6.43%)
Green - 17.79% (UP 5.18%)
Conservative - 15.91% (DOWN 0.37%)
Lib Dem - 13.57% (DOWN 1.93%)
UKIP - 8.88% (DOWN 1.99%)
BNP - 3.93% (UP 0.28%)

Brockley Kate said...

Interesting stuff, thanks A.

So the BNP vote remained more or less static, and the Greens took the lion's share of the ex-Labour vote.

...and in doing so, inserted an enormous carrot up the Lewisham electorate. :-|

A said...

I've heard some Labour people expressing some mild satisfaction that their vote held up a bit better here than nationally. But looking at that 6+% drop, it's a bit like being pleased that it was only a baby grand that fell on them, not the bigger version.

Which reminds me;

Why are women like pianos?


When they're not upright they're grand..........

Finbar Saunders said...

Whoops - forgot the customary

Fnarrr Fnarrr!

Pedantbot said...

..and the extra 'r' in Finbarr.

Anyway, moving on...
