OK, still a bit newbie-keen.

So, Dai Davies won the Blaenau Gwent seat last night. Well done, an' all. But what was that victory speech all about?

"Political parties take note. You take people for granted at your peril. It's the people that matter, not the political parties.

"The dinosaurs thought they would live for ever - they died out. Political parties take note and listen to the people or you're in trouble." [_]

Did the dinosaurs think that they would live forever? I doubt it very much. Surely dinosaurs had no sense of their own mortality, nevermind immortality. Surely they didn't think of themselves of a master race. In fact, they probably barely thought at all.

Anyway, my sincerest commiserations to Alan Hope, Official Monster Raving Loony Party. Just 318 votes. Better luck next time, eh?
