No "bloody nose" for the opposition?
I have to say that I was wildly disappointed by the results of the recent British Euro elections. With the all-party corruption scandal fresh in voters minds, the electorate went to the polls. A bloody nose for the Labour Party was certainly no surprise. But the complete absence of a bloody nose for the snouts-in-the-trough opposition parties really showed a lack of political savvy on the part of the voter. While "minor parties" certainly did better than last time (especially UKIP), the fact that they didn't absolutely wipe the floor with the "big three" corrupt parties is pathetic. Looks like the public will have to learn the hard way.
