Hardly a resounding vote for democracy is it?  Fact is the labour party machine can still get their footsoldiers out round the estates and get them out who are daft enough to vote for them.
Ask yourself this, after a lifetime of power in Barnsley and 100s of millions of pounds spent here why are so many of us out of work, why are so many on benefits, why are so many working for minimum wage, why is our town centre still a mess and why do our politicians and public sector chief officers get paid so much???
