As I contemplate the results of the latest election, I cannot refrain from expressing my satisfaction at seeing all the major supporters of the King Alfred development have been booted out, while those candidates who opposed it have been rewarded.

Coincidence? Maybe. But I'm sure many people used their vote to express their resentment towards a council that systematically ignored widespread opposition to its controversial projects. Particularly annoying was the arrogant rhetoric of certain politicians who claimed to act in the best interests of our city while ignoring the wishes of their voters.

Well, they got what they deserved.
