Voting

Of course, one's primary motive in voting in the local elections should be to damage Gordon Brown. Logically, therefore, one should vote Labour to shore up Blair. Brown has, characteristically, launched his own helpful initiative on election day - here - to make things worse for poor dear Tony. Subtle, he isn't. At the last general election I voted Green on the basis that they were probably more right than anybody else. My old friend, Nige, voted Tory on the equally sound basis that his personal motto was "Back not forward" and his primary political principle was, "Always vote for the Jew." Being, technically Jewish myself, I was sympathetic. Politics is now more interesting than it has been for a while, but not inspiring. One feels like a ghoul, staring at the blood and mangled metal of a car crash. It does not put me in voting mode. Nice day though.

  1. Ha that Brown eh? Incorrigible. The beauty of it is that, in power, he'll make Cameron - or almost anyone in vaguely human form - seem an attractive alternative. So bring him on, I say. Meanwhile, I find myself voting by post for the first time ever - this facility was kindly offered to me by my old pals the Tories, so I availed myself. It will now be lying dumped in a sack somewhere with hundreds of others - but what the hey? It's only local, and councils can do almost nothing these days, apart from screw money out of us for dear old Gordo. It all goes back to him - and Prezza...

    This gave me a good laugh!

    I want a party that will lowwer taxes and only spend them on neccessary things, but I don't think there is one.
