Choose a colour.... any colour!



I am not a political Know it all and I do not profess to understand everything that the politicians ramble on about, and they are all very confusing which has left me in a quandary.....


Do I do the typical car thing.... for example.... when Mr P has in the past discussed a possible car change or update and waffles on about the ins and outs of a ducks arse my tremendously pressing question for him is ....


What colour is it!

So with this in mind do I try to make head nor tail of the ramblings of the political mumbo jumbo or do I think.....


which potential leader looks nice? or ....if all three were in a pub and I walked in which one would I be most likely to strike up an conversation with?

To be honest I am not going to answer that question here as my decision about who I vote for is just that.... my decision...
but rest assured I will drag Danny down to the village hall on Thursday and choose someone mainly because its my duty to take part in a decision that will shape the future of our country and if I don't make the effort

I have absolutely no right to moan when the people in charge cock it up...
which they will because they do not go into 10 Downing Street with a clean sheet and get to start over... they are playing with all the cards stacked against them with their bank account firmly up the creek.....
No-one knows what the future will bring and each of the main gangs in the playground have some good ideas and some bad ones that will affect my family for the better and for the worse...

The nerdy kids with their systems and contracts want this,


the sporty kids with all their pent up energy want something else and the run to teacher, follow the rules kids want to have it their own way too ....

but at the end of the day if you don't want to vote for any of the three main gangs then at least vote for someone... take a look at one of the independent runners and support someone.....

otherwise I'll have no-one to moan with when it all goes tits up!

I feel very lucky to live where I live and I try every day to appreciate the things I take for granted like free health care, good schools and government funded financial help (should I ever need it) we could be so much worse off.... yes things have slipped and perhaps if more people stood up and said "oi.... I am not happy with ....." then perhaps something might get done...

but the long and short of it is

please be "bovvered"....!



Here endeth the rant!

Normal creative postings will resume in the next few days.... today the sun is shining and I am off to mow another lawn.... still haven't done my own! lol

take care
Alex

N.B I managed to get mum's friends lawn mowed.... but I think I might have worn out my mower..... its an electric one and it now sounds like a chuntering petrol engined one.... Mr P says I have no mechanical sympathy..... do you know.. he could be right! ;D

Nicely put! We did postal votes this time as we are all too lazy to walk around the corner to do it.

Great post and well thought out. I am still in a quandry as too who gets the cross marks the spot from me, none of the leaders in my mind ever deliver what they say they will. But even if I am at a cross roads, I will still vote. best wishes Julie.C

We watched the debates on TV and all it seemed to me was that each of them had 'one idea' that they kept saying over, and over, and OVER again. Also they kept mis-representing the other candidates promises.....so pretty childish really, in my humble opionion.

I do not really understand politics either, only that nobody can really change the mess we are in here in the UK in just four years. Perhaps if they put all of their ideas together....well, surely that would make the most sense?! But no....

Bradley asked me this morning if I was going to vote for David Beckham tomorrow, which actually seems like a pretty good idea.....of course, he confused the lovely footballer with the not so lovely David Cameron! The little ones are immensely pleased because their school is closed tomorrow due to it being needed to be a polling station.

Right, enough of that! Hope all is well with you and yours. Missed chatting with you because of my absence in having most of April taken up by silly Norway and Norwegian people not letting me get home....I see the ash cloud is back....?!

Speak soon, my lovely. Take care xxx

brilliant post. i think and hope that the tv debates have brought a new interest in politics and the election process.(though i do feel it was bias to the main 3 parties). my girls are now becoming interested. the eldest in a mature enquiring 11 year old way and the youngest in her own 'quirky' way .. she thought nick clegg was the most handsome and didn't like the look of the 'blue' one when we watched the debates! luckily she won't be able to vote for 9 years!!

Hello dear Alex
I love this post and it is just up my street! Like you I totally believe in the need to vote and I'll be there, blurry eyed, tonight watching those returning officers do their bit!
If our polling station is anything to go by, there's been a good turn out - we had to QUEUE to get into the building!!
