Wheelie Bin

As I was saying to Geoff this afternoon, I was surprised to see this sticker brazenly displayed in a car window.

On closer inspection the car was also well decorated at the front
and the back - What does *Crawley innit* mean?


So I'll be off to the Polling Station tomorrow and YES - of course I'll vote Labour.

The Lib Dems will probably get in. They even ousted our *safe* Labour MP at the general election.
2 reasons for their popularity:
1:The density of students (in the local population that is, I don't know about their intelligence) who obviously don't want to pay tuition fees.
2: The Libs love wheelie bins. Their pledge is to provide us with bigger ones and more of them.
How do you recycle a WHEELIE BIN?
The Green Lady is called Felicity - not much for her to do now that we're all green.
The Labour chap is called Mr Simcock. His leaflet blames the Tories for everything.
Tories in Manchester??

Us London folks don't get a vote today. I blame the Tories for this too....ever since Maggie abolished the GLC and that nice Red Ken (and his newts which are even nicer)...I wonder what happened to him?

Being in a London borough, I'll miss my little walk around to the primary school to cast my vote this year. Always seems to be a pleasant stroll around the school fields in pleasant weather, then you get to use one of those squeaky pencils to put your X by the appropriate loony lefty political correctness gone mad candidate.

Um, how big does the Lib Dem candidate want Wheelie Bins to be? The size of a shed?

Perhaps the driver is a fan of Aleister Crowley innit. I rather like the chap myself, won't be voting for Labour though a little too satanic for me.

For the first time, I don't think I'll vote. Getting harder to tell one bunch of arseholes from another.

We were asked if we wanted a single local authority for the whole county (county council and district councils rolled into one), the vote was overwhelmingly against it, but it's going to be inflicted on us anyway.

Western democracy.

NiC:

Your Ken is still a bit of glamour figure to us Northern lefties.

Do you mean what happened to the 'nice' or the 'newt'?

Betty:

I'll think of you when making my squeaky X

It seems to me that wheelie bins need to be big enough to take an old computer, big black telly or abandoned sofa.

I blame DFS.

Dave:

I googled your Crowley!
He's described as "The Wickedest Man In the World.".

I think the sticker said Crawley - is it somewhere down south?

I suspect we should steer clear of politics, or it may be the end of a beautiful relationship.

Stitch:

I see what you mean.
You could write this on your ballot paper with the squeaky pencil.

At least you'd count as a spoiled ballot paper rather than an apathetic 'no show'.

Arseholes - are they what you made for those new slippers of yours?

You could get Jonathan Woss to advertise it.

Enjoy your day at the Polls. Please don't let the Tories back in y'all.

The class divide was showing down the local at lunchtime. Labour candidate canvassing punters coming out of the bar, Tories doing the lounge.

I left by the fire exit.

If the Tories get in - I'm oudda here.

Midnight:
*Tories doing the Lounge* - sounds like a great title for a Brian Ferry album.

Sorry I'm late. Have written a note on the spoilt ballot paper.

Hopefully the lovely Mr Blair can move over on a blaze of glory now and let Gordon sort it out.

We had a parish council election, which was good as there was no political party involved.

Murph:
It's OK I still love you.

Z:
That's better isn't it - no need to worry about past party loyalties which can go back to childhood.

I don't know what I meant... that was yesterday! I think I was sarcastically reflecting on what a favour Thatcher did Ken's career by abolishing the GLC.

Ken is still generally popular down here too, I still like him even if he occasionally puts both his feet in his mouth. He'll almost certanly get my vote for a third term as mayor.

I do wonder about the newts though..wonder if he still has some?

Blogger I, like the view said...

I had a boyfriend from Crawley once

he was a bit creepy, so I binned him

Nic:
I'm glad you still like Ken. I think the putting of the foot in the mouth is preferable to the slavish obedience to the whip.

I think the newts went the way of the ex partner when he had a clear out.

View:
Oh - very good.
Murph would be proud of you!

Chorleywood is down south somewhere I think [maybe I'm getting it mixed up with Crawley too]
At least you had a choice of candidates -- we just had Labour and Conservatives. I spent at least a full minute trying to decide whether to vote for a candidate I didn't want or make a meaningless gesture by proffering a spoilt paper.
Seems a lot of Scots made that gesture.

BTW -- stop by Hyde DP on Sunday -- I'm running a caption competition!

Hi Kaz,

I thought I would drop by your blog as you were kind enough to visit mine the other day.

My local council has been in a state of No Overall Control for the past three years. Previously it was run (very sucessfully) by Labour for 25 years. I continue to vote labour, but the Tory councillor on my ward got back in easily.

I have slightly liberal leanings, although I rarely vote for them. I've gone off them in a big way since they aligned themselves with the Tories on my local council after Labour lost control in 2004. I said this to my mum on the phone yesterday and she replied "The Liberals are just tarts! They get in to bed with anyone who might give them a whiff of power! Tarts!"

I think she has a point.

On the subject of wheelie bins - we have three here in Ippy, one black 'normal' bin, one brown 'composting' bin and one blue 'recycling' bin. I think they're great and I can't believe how little is in my normal bin these days (and it's only a little single person sized one). We already have the fortnightly bin emptying regime and I certainly have no problem with it.

Gerald:
What - no Lib Dems in Hyde - I am surprised.
I bet there's no Labour in Chorleywood. When I lived in Cheadle Hulme in 1970 there was no Labour candidate in the local elections. I didn't live there long.

I've had a go at you caption.

Hi Liz:
Good to see you.
*Ming the tart* eh? Rather a stale tart.

I voted lib dem once to keep the Tories out and I like some of their policies.

But when it comes to deeply held principles, I think Gordon's my best bet.

I'll pop over again soon.
