How do you solve a problem like Maria (Eagle MP, who’s actually not involved in these elections at all so the premise of that punny title is flimsy to say the least)?

Local elections are nearly here. It’s like bad Saturday night telly, but with bin collection and leisure centre provision instead of West End musicals!

I got my postal voting ballot paper on Saturday morning. Now, which party should I vote for — the useless lot, the liars, or one of the ones which have no hope of winning whatsoever (in my neck of the woods, at any rate)?

Every year there’s talk of voter apathy, and this year it seems to have extended to the parties themselves — I don’t think I’ve had a single piece of election propaganda pushed through my letterbox yet. How am I supposed to make an informed choice without a “Lib Dems are eating your children” newsletter from the Labour party?

By the way, if you’re a lunatic or idiot, you’re not allowed to vote. So that’s why turnout is so low.
