Guest at 06:55 I regret to say that your analysis of how this Labour [Phtoooey!] party won the last general election is somewhat wide of the mark. It is a common belief, and may account for the amount of voter apathy, that governments are elected by a mojority of the people, this is untrue. It is also a canard, [fed up with herrings]
The present Labour [Phtooey!] party won the 2001 election with 24.2% of a vote of 26,366,992, which is a total of 6,380,812votes. That is the "majority" that is imposing their will on the British people. This is from an electorate of 44,401,238, stinks doesn't it?
