So.Longsleddale's answer to Kim Jong Un thinks it was a good result. The one party state rules in Kendal. One day the people who voted in these cretins will live to regret it, when they've destroyed all our accessible countryside & local people are still unable to afford the majority of the houses covering it & nobody can move for all the extra traffic trying to get to the nonexistent new schools.

Well, that really is a surprise. The only region where the Lib Dems have dramatically increased their seats and power! At least we haven't got too many Tories, although with this coalition government the Lib Dems are now almost Tory anyway... I'm pleased to see the Greens getting going and fielding more candidates - it's only a matter of time. Why does Labour have such a low profile in South Lakes? And thank goodness we don't have any UKIPs.

Score: -8
