The revenge of Gaia

This river can kill you in a thousand ways
- Paul Sarone, Anaconda

It seems as though Lewisham may pay a terrible price for failing to support the Green Party in the numbers they hoped.

As Darren Johnson was being beaten in to fourth place in Lewisham Deptford, The Sun reports a Brockley parrot went on a 24-hour rampage through our streets.

Mischievous Reggie escaped through a window and was only tempted back when owner Hubbell Walker left out his favourite tipples — red wine and Pringles crisps. Hubbell knew about Reggie's peculiar tastes and came up with the plan after the parrot fled in Brockley, south London.

Don't try telling Brockley Central that it's just a coincidence. Nature is mad as hell. The Brockley Foxes have the scent of blood in their nostrils. What have we done?

A truly disasterous night. Brighton Pavilion is the only golden moment of the election.

Looking at the Ladywell vote I feel that the 503 votes for Community Need
Before Private Greed (part of the People before Profit Party) helped to oust the Green's and bring back New Labour.

The Green vote was the following:
Charlotte DINGLE 1845
Sue LUXTON 1805
Ute MICHEL 1575

I imagine Charlotte's vote was so high because of the alphabetical effect of higher votes if your name is at the top of the ballor paper.

If you add PBP 503 votes to any of the Greens it would have beaten at least one of the Labour candidates.
Labour got 1909 votes 2462 votes and 2250 votes.

PBP should hang their heads with shame that they are letting New Labour back in with their temporary party.

No - the greens should reassess and wonder why they are not seen as a majority option. Maybe something to do with attitude to car ownership and getting into bed with transition towns

more like something to do with the unfair coverage to the 3 main parties before the general election.

Unfair coverage? - the greens, on the number of votes they get, should not receive anymore media coverage. The are a bit of a one trick pony, at best.

My moniker comes from a comment that was made about Labour voters a few days back. A poster called them donkeys. I found this insulting in the extreme, even though I didn't vote for them. I wear my moniker with pride.
