To PCC Or Not To PCC

So apparently these elections has had one of the lowest turnouts of all times. In some areas the ballot box was empty, not one person came to the polling station, even if it were just to steal the voting pencil?

The blame game has commenced, “its Labours fault!” shouts Cameron whilst he sleep talks… eh, no Dave (I can still call you Dave yea?) Labour said they didn’t want these elections… “Oh, hold on, what comes after L…. M, its M…. M stands for …. Media, yes its the Medias fault… yes, naughty Media!” says Dave satisfied as he hogs the duvet leaving Clegg out in the cold.

Maybe the reason people didn’t vote was they didn’t understand the purpose of the role, they didn’t want the role, they never asked for the role! Or maybe choosing not to vote was their vote.

Anyway, it gave us a few chuckles:

  • Coventry had more spoilt ballot papers than people who voted for the Lib Dems
  • A winning candidate has the surname Coppinger
  • The Lib Dems didn’t win one seat

Congratulations to the Labour winning candidates.
