"With stupidity, the Gods themselves do battle in vain"

A terrifying insight into the minds of Londoners c/o London Councils:

"The poll, carried out by Ipsos MORI, revealed that almost half the people surveyed incorrectly believe that their local council runs the police and hospitals. Only two in five people know which political party runs their own local council, and just 6 per cent of Londoners know the name of their council's leader".

But "one in four said they would be interested in standing for election as a local councillor".

To the hills, to the hills....

CU - Fair enough. I will admit to checking whether Fisher is still El Jefe Maximo at Croydon council. Fortunately he is, so I don't need to die a thousand deaths of shame.
