Further Democratic Gloom

Upcoming Local Government elections. What with Cornwall being a Unitary Authority... there is only one council to vote for (apart from Parish).

It do come as a shock for me to see from the list in the local paper that our district has a choice between precisely two candidates: Conservative or UKIP.
Our previously Independent Councillor has gone and joined the Conservatives... though he do not jump to tell us that fact when we had a political chat in the street the other week....

Alors! What with the last general election.... when I thought I was voting Lib Dem and found I had managed to get the Tories into government...

......My voting rights feel positively hi-jacked and sadly may soon be under-exercised methinks.
