Blogging has been rather light around here over the last few weeks for the obvious reason that campaigning for the local elections has taken up large chunks of my time. The result on Thursday was a tough one for the Liberal Democrats both nationally, here in Luton and for me personally. More on that later.
But also disappointing was the outcome of the referendum vote on changing the electoral system for Westminster. Sadly, Luton went along with the national trend and voted ‘no’. The full result in Luton was:
Yes: 16,002 (31.4%)
No: 34,980 (68.6%)
