8. That kind of a turnout would have effectively turned a lot of the wards

into temporary de facto "rotten boroughs", wouldn't it?

I wonder what might have happened there if the Greens had made a push...they could potentially have taken a lot of votes simply by being the one party(due, of course, to their never having been in power in most of Britain)that wasn't responsible for any instances of governmental corruption or incompetence.
