I’m glad I don’t live in America. I think this whole pre-election bollocks would kill me. I mean, it’s tedious enough as it is being over here. Over there, where it’s actually important, day-to-day? I think that would be sort of like hell. And this isn’t even the election! This is just who gets to stand in the election! There are NINE MORE MONTHS TO GO before someone is elected. And after that it’ll be appeals and dimpled chads and all that guff.
Refreshingly, the elections for the Mayor of London are coming up in May and it’s so very… I mean, I know it’s not as important in the grand scheme of things, but it’s pretty close to home and I’m not really hearing much about it at all, beyond a sort of background hum. Maybe that will change when the candidates are officially announced, but I think by then we’ll be close enough to the day that it’ll be, well, it’ll be time.
Meanwhile, America will be voting on what socks each candidate will wear during their inauguration.
