We’ve been away for a few days (building a new news site). What a week it’s been. The UK has just completed the local council elections, well at least some parts of the UK have. As usual the Governing party, or at the moment parties have taken a real bashing.
Although, as always not winning many seats, UKIP have grown in it’s proportion of the vote, stuffing the Lib Dems into fourth place. It’s only a matter of time before people wake up and smell the EU coffee and start supporting the only sensible voice in Europe.
It looks like the distinguished political career is over for Livingstone I presume! Who would have thought that the buffoon Boris could beat Red Ken for a second term at London Mayor. (watch you back “call me Dave”, he’s coming after your job, although I doubt if he could afford the pay cut).
Sad to see dear old Nicolas Sarkozy is on the way out of the Élysée Palace , I’ll miss his warm and caring manner towards the UK. And what about the Greek voters rejecting austerity measures. With the new anti austerity President Hollande in France I bet old Merkel has really got her knickers in a twist. It will be interesting to see what happens in the Euro Zone with Hollande, will it be the beginning of the end, or is he a wolf in different sheep’s clothing?
