Polling Day in Britain

So it's voting day back in Blighty...

Who will be leader by tomorrow? So long as it's not the appalling, sanctimonious,idiotic Gordon Brown I don't mind. Whoever takes the helm is in for a stormy passage with little hope of a calm harbour for some considerable time.

I have no vote, not registered anymore in the UK. Once I stood for local Government, it was a sobering insight into the machinations of power. I remember the shock of seeing the boards planted along the street 'Vote Gerry.....", a chilling moment! The big boxes of ballot papers counted late in to the night, each cross NOT against my name a personal slight! I won.It was an experience, not one I intend to repeat.
