Dumfirmline - Local Issues.

BBC NEWS | Politics | Lib Dems celebrate bombshell win: "The winner, Willie Rennie, said the result would 'rock the foundations' of Downing Street, but ministers said it was due to 'local issues'. "

Heaven forbid that the electorate should start voting for their locally elected representatives on 'local issues'.

At the tail end of the Today Program this morning (just before I had to run to catch the 9 o'clock train) two commentators made the point that the excuse of 'local issues' was used by the Tories in the 90s.

This is especially rich coming from such a centralising control-freak government who wish to control all local issues from Whitehall.
