Political Bias

I read most of the Thanet blogs every day and have noticed how strong the left right bias has become recently. Being female I look after the local and personal and let the gentlemen run the rest of the world, which means that I look at the person as well as their politics. I went to Dr Ladyman's surgery in 1999, where I explained the problems of a bill that was due to go through parliament shortly and even had surprising help from his assistant in convincing him. When I left he was in total agreement that it would be bad law. He then voted for it and I heard nothing from him ever again and despite his being my local MP I have never set eyes on him since. Roger Gale is not my local MP but I have seen him at meetings, even where he has had to explain himself for not being politically correct as he was not, strictly speaking, on his patch until boundary changes occur. I always vote but the local politicians make it very difficult, where is the Liberal voice. The Parish councils are not politically aligned at the moment and I hope that doesn't change if Ramsgate should be daft enough to exchange it's Charter for a parish council. I know that there is a lot wrong with TDC but I think the tendency to blame it on their politics shows a short memory.

There are no Lib Dems in Thanet, are there? It's a straight North/South, blue/red divide. Or should that be green/pink these days?

I for one would welcome an alternative and I'm not talking about UKIP.

cripes weeds, are you going politcal on us?

i know that i've tended to show a socialist outlook in my bloggings, but at heart i'm a liberal. thats why i intend to change myself on the electoral register from my hometown to oxford west. at least here the liberals are active, they only seem to pay lip service to the thanet blue.
