The Local question

In the UK the local council elections are about very local issues and personalities. In my local experience they are also about back biting between candidates that really should not be let anywhere near a local authority.

In the media, however, local issues are ignored and the local elections are seen as a poll for any forthcoming general election.

In this particular election, so far not a lot has happened. Some have gone up one or two seats, others down one or two seats - but certainly no overwhelming, headline hitting catastrophe or success.

Sounds like the voter really cant be bothered to make any particular point for the benefit of the media or the national parties.
