1. the new lady who is not for turning, oh dear...

2. the chap with some rather dubious pals...

3. the chap with some rather dubious convictions...

4. the lady who wants independence but calls you out for...wanting independence...

5. the lady who confuses failure with chauvinism...

6. the chap who you were not allowed to hear...

7. the lady who would depose the queen...

8. the job shares...

9. the loony party that out loonies the raving monster loonies....

10. some hangers on that are even more on the fringe than the above...


that it has come to this... Smile

I'm wondering if there's anything that could surprise me waking-up tomorrow morning after the last few years.

Wish I could vote for this guy, who is a consistent campaigner with huge support amongst the young (sadly most too young to vote)!

Having woken up to two "WTF" election results in the last 12 months, I fully expect Jeremy Corbyn to be moving his furniture into 10 Downing Street by the weekend Rolling Eyes

I just want to know if Hot Chillee have given you a shot in a Maser yet, or if they deliver as much as your average politician.

With Hot Chillee you pay them a fortune for them to tell you that you're doing well. With pollies you pay them a fortune for them to tell you they're doing well. Wink

We had a track day with them and they're supplying a lead car for each of the 5 groups for the London to Paris event next month, but I'm still waiting for my sponsored car to turn up Wink

It's funny I actually liked Cameron when he was elected... it went downhill from there.

Mind you my MP, one of his, agreed with me that one of their welfare changes was putting me in a quite literally impossible situation where I was stuffed whatever decisions I was motivated to make by policy. He thought about it for a good while, looked around my home, and agreed with me on this.

Still in that imposssible situation. Even though they have clear evidence of policy failings. But hey ho I could be homeless within a year. Cheers! (Worst case scenario but perfectly plausible).

I mention this to,illustrate the importance of (1) wisdom and (2) taking account of all aspects of a decision and (3) how ideology can make you 'miss' things.


Anyhow rant over. Re today, I will admit I don't have a sodding clue who is going to win. Common sense would suggest May, but I just don't know.

With Brexit and Trump I instinctively knew months ahead, but re today I just don't know.

Whatever the outcome I just hope we get more wisdom and less politicking.

well, my preferred options were:

1. Tory majority so that Brexit could be handled properly (but with the emergence of a strong labour leader so that we had an effective opposition)

2. labour landslide so that i could see out the bulk of my days studying with no fees and no need to contribute to society beyond smiling nicely to everyone

Missed out on both...
