Is anyone bothered?
Did anyone vote?
Is anyone watching it?

Seems that the answers may well be "non".

We're all going to be just dirt in the ground.

Hey, I was gonna do this dry.gif

I voted Lib Dem. Seeing as I'm in the North West, where the BNP vote is gonna be highest, I figured I had to vote just to ease my conscience somewhat. Apparently Nick Griffin had to be smuggled away from the Town Hall and the baying mob outside.

And I shall be watching the results once The Apprentice: You're Hired has finished (yes, I know, I need help sleep.gif).

there seems to be an objective reality that a determined individual can penetrate if he is willing to challenge the confining chimeras of markets and machines

I voted for 3 or 4 locals. I always make the effort to vote, so when the time comes to moan about the outcome, at least no one can hit me with a "well why didn't you vote then?" statement.

The quick answer to "Why I didn't vote" is that a didn't have a choice.

Take it or leave it in not a choice.
Life is like a musical by Andrew Lloyd-Webber. Very popular and not as bad as some would have you believe. That is, unspeakably awful but mercifully brief.

"Take it or leave it" is not a choice it is an imposition.

That's why.

E. Midlands did not change too much. I'm not displeased. At least there were no BNP here I guess....

The North West did as I feared. We've elected Nick Griffin as an MEP sad.gif

If I'd thought about it tactically, I should have voted Labour. It's them that lost the seat to the BNP. All the other parties were as 2004.

Still, maybe it's better having that odious little bigot on a different landmass from myself. Like with Kilroy.
