Something that was lost in the noise of the Conservative landslide in the elections last week was the fact that the Limp Dims, despite the enormous bigging up that they gave themselves in the run-up, went near as dammit absolutely nowhere. A combination of losses and gains resulting in a net gain of one measly council. Woop-di-doo. What a really viable third party we have here, ladies and gentlemen. I think it is now plainly clear that, despite their conceited claims, The Limp Dims are not a viable alternative, and will remain nothing more than the largest third-party until another one comes along and displaces them into their rightful position amongst the Greens and various other Communists. Who in their right mind would think that the answer to the current problems in the UK is more limp-wristed, wishy-washy leftist platitudes of a similar kind to those that got us into this problem in the first place? Oh yes... Limp Dim voters... Unfortunately, the way the Conservatives are going (or at least are presenting themselves currently), come the next general election we may simply find ourselves with another version of corporatist new Labour unless they grow some balls and heavily prune back the client state and some of the more egregious laws brought in during the last 11 years. I am not holding my breath, but it will be interesting to see what Boris gets up to in London.
