That was an extremely low turn out percentage, do some people not care who represents them? It is never a waste of time to vote. Emily Pankhurst would be disappointed at any woman that did not vote.

I can't believe anyone would vote Conservative in Cornwall, given the problems the government are causing the council by slashing their grants and restricting the amount they can raise council tax by at the same time.
