I had three votes in the local election. I voted twice for Labour and once for the Greens. Why oh why did I vote Labour? Because my MP, Keith Hill, recently replied to a letter I sent him about Identity Cards and his letter was good and rather persuasive. The other reason is the card which the good people in the Streatham Labour Party sent me on May Day. It was deep crimson with a fist raised in solidarity on the front. Inside it had the lyrics of Billy Bragg’s version of the Internationale and a brief history of International Workers’ Day. That’s all it took. What can I say? I’m a cheap date. Anyway, as a result of my vote Lambeth was the only Labour gain of the local elections and I’m feeling pretty smug about that.
