How depressing is this? Just two candidates to choose from, 32% turnout.
The winner, as always and inexplicably a tory here in the countryside, started her statement complaining that Council Tax had doubled since 1997, and ended it complaining that the Government had capped it.

What should it be? Obviously the people don’t care either way.
