    Only sad sorry Lincolnshire could be so slow and we wonder why a decent road system has been decades in the planning...yawn.

    I for one approve of this low turnout. As a theory democracy sounds very persuasive, until you realise that half of the electorate are, by definition, of average intelligence or below. It's therefore better when the great unwashed stays in to watch Jeremy Kyle and leaves the decision-making to those of us who are actually capable of the job. Arrogant? Probably. True? Most definitely.
