how did those losers win again?

three heids
It looks like New Labour are going to win, again. Sigh. I voted for them in ’97 ‘cos they appeared to be an alternative to the truly appalling Tories. And for about a year, I thought I’d made the right choice. But no, they’re just the Tories, remixed.

I voted Scottish Liberal Democrat. Yes, they didn’t get in in my constituency. They did take nearby East Dunbartonshire, though.

The price of democracy in the UK: $50.42

$50.42 is what it cost me to UPS my UK ballot paper back to North Lanarkshire Council with any hope of it getting there on time. It really didn’t help that I only got my papers on Monday. Canada Post and/or Purolator were too slow or evil to get it there in time.

Once the election is done, I’ll show you what a real ballot paper looks like.
