Shock Radio


I was listening to the lunchtime news today. It featured an interview with a senior Conservative MP saying things like “This is a failing Parliament”, “We cannot go on like this” and “If we lose the vote tonight, we must call a General Election”.

I suppose it might explain why the local Conservative party recently decided to re-select Dr Julian Lewis for the next General Election. It might come a lot sooner than people think…

However, will another referendum or a General Election really change anything?

Has anybody decided to vote differently from the last time around?

I detect the biggest shift as being voters turned off and deciding “A curse on all your houses” and maybe not going to vote at all.

I hope this is wrong, especially as we approach local elections on May 2nd.
