Sunday 06 May 2007...

Nowhere have I seen the turnout figures for the recent elections. Surely where the turnout is low, that is the real message for all politicians - that the voters have no faith in any party or their representatives, and this is the message that they refuse to acknowledge.
George Compton, UK

I went to vote as I have done at every local and national election since 1970. I took one look at my ballot paper, saw no one acting for me, so I put it in the ballot box empty! I had no real choice. Does it matter then who wins?
Mike Cooke, Newcastle under Lyme

Health Service is the major achievement over the last 10 years and the Iraq war will be seen as Blair's gravest mistake.
Paul Bouch, England

I live in Oswestry, Shropshire. I would just like to say that there were no LABOUR candidates standing in our borough or town elections. How can we vote labour. No wonder the Conseratives won in this area. My father who is a Labour supportor all his life is disgusted and horrified about the situation.
Jill Whitchurch, England

As a former member of the Labour Party I think LABOUR have lost the plot if they think Gordon Brown is going to be their election saviour. In many respects he could turn out to be their nemesis.
Ian Payne, Lichfield

At 74 years of age I have voted in every election since I was 21. I must be a little naive because I fail to see the connection between local elections and the national government. The last time I voted Conservative was for Ted Heath, I think that the Blair government has been the best in my lifetime, but I voted Conservative at the council elections because rightly or wrongly I think that the Conservatives would not waste as much of my money as the North Tynside Labour council does.
G. Smith, England
