New MP Julian Hindsight still attended
his normal Friday appointment this morning
East Hampshire has voted to type and elected one of many faceless Tories to butcher our public services - but there is hope for saving the job of one local public servant.
The green token system operated for Wait-lose shoppers is being dramatically upgraded from its usual role of helping out local toy libraries and dog charities. Instead shoppers will be able to vote with their tokens to save the job of up to ONE essential local worker - choosing between a nurse, a teacher, or a dustman.
New Tory MP Julian 'Mack the Knife' Hindsight has joined forces with the upmarket supermarket to show that he "really does care" about his new constituents.
"We promised to bring democracy closer to home and this green token ballot does just that," he said.
"It will give people a chance to save one local person's job - that's real democracy and shows up all those lies about the Conservatives not caring about local services.
"Of course we'll be closing all the local schools and hospitals, and slashing all council services so we can cut taxes for the rich – but those who want to hold up our efficiency drive can, if they so wish, take part in this scheme."
Voting starts today - if anyone has any money left to spend at the supermarket.
Asked which way he would be voting, Mr Hindsight said: "Probably the dustman - my children go to private school and I've got private health insurance..."
