Some disjointed thoughts about the UK election )

And on the plus side, at least we can have an election in 7 weeks. America, take note ;)

For those of you in the UK: vote, or lose the right to complain when your council is controlled by the BNP.

So many boxes )

Yesterday I was perfectly healthy.

Today I have a foul headache, and am coughing and wheezing like faulty bellows.

Coincidence ? I think not. Hung parliaments are bad for your health.

That is all. For insightful political comment, please see elsewhere.

I suck at trying to engage with the political process.

Having established which constituency my new home is in, I've been assiduously learning about the candidates standing for election. Then I observed that leaflets were dropping through my letterbox for totally different candidates. Gosh what fools, I thought, canvassing the wrong people like that.

Except it turns out that the constituency boundaries are moving at the next election. I am (or will be) in a constituency which doesn't currently exist and has no incumbent MP.

Arse. I've been revising all the wrong people :(

A couple of times recently I've mentioned http://www.theyworkforyou.com, and been surprised at the number of people who don't know about it. It's dead simple: type your postcode in, and get a random bunch of information (eg voting record on big issues, attendance record, links to speeches, contact details) for your MP.

This is what the internet should be for )

Remember, kids: voting is just like a giant tickybox.
