The obligatory election post
For me, the surprising thing was that voting for the nebulous "Others" seemed to be down, rather against predictions and, obviously, my hopes. I can only conclude that this was because, buoyed by scare-stories of evil Tories, Labour voters decided to vote for their party rather than a "protest party". And Tories seem to have responded to Spam—or rather the hope of power that he holds out—and turned out in force to show their approval.
Other than that, the whole thing was rather tedious. I went to a gig instead and saw Low versus Diamond, who were pretty good, and The Hoosiers, who were thoroughly excellent in a quirky kind of way. I would certainly go and see the latter again, and may even search out their gig dates.
As for politics... meh.
