This morning, after the election, Labour are crowing over having control of Stoke-on-Trent city council once again, and in spite of already destroying most of the city, the electorate of Stoke-on-Trent have allowed them back in, not by voting for them, but by not bothering to vote at all.
I think the average turnout for the election was 25%, that means that 3 OUT OF EVERY 4 VOTERS, DID NOT BOTHER TO VOTE!!
How the hell are we to change the fortunes of this city when the lazy and stupid people won't even make the effort to put their mark on a piece of paper?!
Labour combined forces with the ethnic minorities around the city because they know that the ethnic minorities will work together, stick together, and vote together, this is why the muslims had such an excellent election last night, they put the effort in and were rewarded for it!
This is a major self inflicted wound by the majority of the voters in this city. Labour now have a crushing majority and there is no-one to challenge what they do or how they do it, and you can expect to see the immigrant population of this city continue to rise at an increased rate, you can expect to see more of the money from the public purse headed into the bme communities, and you will definitely see more of the Labour closures that have removed services and amenities from the public. They've closed our swimming pools, care homes, libraries, schools, and this rolling programme of closures will only get worse.
But you know what, it serves you right. Every last one of you that didn't vote are responsible for the state that this city is in, and now that you have let the communists in for another 4 years, wait and see what they do to it then!
So the next time you consider complaining about services from the council, car park charges, increases in your council tax, nothing for the kids to do, just remember that you had the opportunity to do something about it, you just couldn't be arsed.
Labour didn't win this election, apathy did.
