Only the few vote

MAY I remind Mr Hampton (News Guardian, Letters, January 20) that we have a mayor who got into office with statistically less than one in ten people in North Tyneside voting for her.

I would not call that very democratic by any standard.

In my opinion, if all of the people who were eligible to vote in North Tyneside were made to vote, you would never get a Tory mayor or even a Tory councillor again.
