Well, I’m in work before 9am which is definately a good thing, unfortunately I had a few too many ciders last night, and a very nice curry from Weatherspoons as it was curry night. This means I’m not sure how useful the work I do today will be…
Well, it’s nearly here and no one has really moved in the polls. Labour are still winning by 10%, and the Conservatives are about 10% in front of the Liberal Democrats. Of course, this tells you little about the next parliament, because if things stay the way they are, Labour will still have a huge majority. It only takes a little swing in some marginal constituencies to change the face of politics in this country.
The sad thing is that Labour will get into government again. I couldn’t vote for them on the whole “Saddam Hussein could blow us up in 45 minutes with his enormous weapons of mass deliberation”, then it turning out there were none. I can’t vote Conservative because I’m not old, so I’m left with the Liberal Democrats.
The problem I have here is that while I agree with nearly all of their policies, and I am pleased with their refreshingly honest manner, I’m not sure about the local income tax. But then I can vote for them because it’s unlikely they’ll form a government and they have a good selection of “non-evil” policies. Or should I just vote for the independant guy standing in Hereford?
