More from the 36 million
The row over our exclusion from the NUT debate is rumbling on nicely.
The Todmorden News and Hebden Bridge Times both put the story on the front page, I’m pleased to say. I’ll post the stories up here when they’re online. I’m also sending a follow-up letter on the off chance that one or two people take exception to how it’s presented in the press (!)
A few people have also taken issue with my use of numbers. Here’s my response:
- Of course many of the 36,654,902 who didn’t vote for the ‘main parties’ didn’t vote at all – that’s precisely my point! I was stating the unassailable truth that the three ‘main’ parties do not have the support of most UK voters, and for the NUT or anyone else to claim otherwise is plain wrong!
- I’ve checked my figures and they are correct – see: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/bsp/hi/elections/euro/09/html/ukregion_999999.stm
