30% voter turnout? That's even worse than ours (36.5%). :P

Can you really draw any useful conclusions from a 30% turnout, aside from the fact that the vast majority just doesn't care?

People are rubbish at turning out for European elections and then whinge that we're being "governed from Brussels". I vote, therefore I've got a right to complain! And it's nice to see the Greens giving the Tories a run for their money.

I wouldn't be surprised if more people voted for Britain's Got Talent than the European elections.
