...but it expresses my feelings most eloquently. [Original sketch here.]

"On May Day '97
The Tory junta fell -
A great night for the people!
And the morning after - hmm, well..."
~ Robb Johnson, Not A Bad Week for the People

Which is why the fact it's such a close-run race (and may result in the HUNG PARLIAMENT OF DOOM) qualifies as a vaguely optimistic state of affairs... Went and voted. Had been considering a tactical vote for the Liberal Democrats, but personal conscience and principle and having clocked up over a decade in the Socialist Party won out, so my cross was scrawled firmly beside the candidate for the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (a.k.a. my mate Steve).

C'mon, then. Hung parliament? Bring it on, you bastards. Has to be better than going back to the dark days of Tory majority:

Mood absolutely not improved by the latest UK European election results. I'm working on a challenge fic and F5-ing the Beeb's running totals page every so often between paragraphs.

One seat to the BNP so far. Fuck.

Bloody UKIP (who are almost as bad) have four. Whut? MPs' expenses scandal backlash...

Tories storming it with seven (and over a million votes).

Labour trailing along with four.

Minor bright spot: Three for the Lib Dems, and one for Plaid Cymru. :)

Grr. Come on, Greens. I sacrificed a potential Socialist Labour vote in favour of you, in the name of keeping out the BNP. You don't even have a single seat yet!

East Midlands [my region] hasn't yet declared.

Call to arms for the UK's European elections today...

Get out & vote.
Keep out the BNP.

Latest update on exit polls is disturbing:
could be down to just a couple of hundred votes for the BNP to squeak into a seat.

Get out & vote.
Keep out the BNP.

And tell those buggers to stop hijacking our Spitfires, too. ;)
