Second Lieutenant Election...

I know I couldn't give a flying feck for our pathetic politicians these days, they'll all thick, manipulative liars, so just as this 'election' is looming, I'll stick in my two-pennorth for good time's sake.



Just for the record, I'll put my cross against Greg Clark, as I have actually met him, and although Tunbridge Wells will turn Labour when hell freezes over, he does seem a nice enough bloke. The others don't seem to be anywhere, so I'll conveniently forget them.

I've got so many more important things to do! The leeks need re-potting, and a chum down the road needs some tomato plants. I need some more exercise on my electric bike, and we need some more wine soon (that's my day  job)!

I'm glad we don't live in Manchester, or Oldham. I've been there on occasions, but it's a different world, so I'll stay safely here thanks.

I worked for 18 years in Manchester with plenty of interaction with our ROP fellow citizens, it was never a pleasure on any level...ever.

Thud, I've picked up here very quickly (for me), so thank you for your response.

I'm so smug as in our village, we just don't have all these problems.

I just love your attitude to the mess you have to cope with in nearby cities - London's the worst, but I haven't been there for three years, and am happier for that.

Coming up for seventy, I have more interesting priorities these days, but I just love what you do to your property. I always wanted to do what you do, so I suppose that's the way it is...

Maybe I don't have to sweat and groan as much as you do!

;0)

The election night is unlikely to be half as interesting as the Referendum night, so I plan not to sit up all night watching the results coming in. I ceded my right to vote anyway many years ago so tant pis (I will not offer a translation of that phrase!) really!

Good for you, Michael !

I've met our MP and he seems decent enough. I often wonder if that will do and we should forget the party politics. The trouble is, Corbyn would probably seem decent enough on that basis.

Reevers, our vote goes in around breakfast time, and we're almost next door to the vote place...

If they ask us outside to see our cards, we tell them to fuck off!

Kev, you're right on there!

Mr AK, our Jeremy is not a bad person in my opinion, just a useless/useful chap, and would be hopeless running anything more than a small parish council!

Theresa has got a real problem here, as the numbers will not stack up for her promises.
