Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different outcome!

I watched Question Time last night. It is always going to be for the last time yet I always tune in hoping that some one will actually capture the hearts and imagination with an idea, rather than just pander to their own political, personal or professional interests. Don’t the politicians on the panel realise that they have lost the trust and faith of the people they serve? The biggest political issue today is not that UKIP are winning by-elections or that Lib Dem support has fallen off a cliff. It’s that less than 50% of people can be bothered to turn out to vote at all. Leadership is about taking people with you, not expecting them to follow. Whether you agreed with Thatcher or Blair, it was those qualities that captured the hearts and minds of the electorate.

    Couldn’t agree more. Basing & Lychpit Ward usually has, or shares, the highest turnout in the Borough but that’s not saying much. We did,however, manage 50% in 2011 when Cllr. Marks was re-elected and 75% for the General Election of 2010 when Maria was re-elected.
    For those of you reading this who may be away on the day, get a postal vote by going to http://www.basingstoke.gov.uk and navigate to Electoral Services.
