I'm not long back from casting my vote in the Euro-elections. Despite it being the time of the evening when folks are on their way home and you might think it would be busy then you'd be stone wrong. Yours truly was the only voter in the room. Asking if it had been busy earlier, the answer was "no' really". I can semi-understand the angle that these prospective representatives might only be in it for the expenses but that's no reason not to exercise your given right.

There's no greater exponent of the guilty until proven otherwise treaty but come on, we have to start someplace. And if you don't take part then you have absolutely no grounds for mumping when it all goes akimbo. Got it? The polling stations are open until 10pm, move your 'arris!

This has been a public service announcement on behalf of the "What Are You Buggers Playing At?" party.

On a more sombre note...

RIP - Sam Butera (Thanks to Tom for the link to this)

RIP - David Carradine

Turn outs were rotten. Politics is at the lowest point in this country in my life time.
