Lets hope it gives that Gorilla we call a PM something to think about in future... Otherwise, I'll be voting Tory (I don't vote Tory or Labour at the moment, but the Tories are the only other party who will get in!)

Re: the title of this thread ........

The 'town' of Wigan, which contains two wards, Wigan Central and Wigan West, actually returned more Conservative votes than Labour in the recent election.
The 'constituency', on the other hand, is predominantly Labour.

Vote Torie and get them in.

10 years go by and thoughts of voting the other gang party appear. A labour vote from the majority who are annoyed at the current Torie government. Labour get in.

10 years later...Torie

10 years later...Labour

See the circle now? Happened since the 2nd world war. Successive governments have destroyed the lot and folk STILL keep switching and voting mainstream.
