those clever chaps over at Huffington Post have revealed the maths behind the search for a new leader for the UK Labour Party
the voting is over – now we wait for the results to come in
the UK goes to the polls tomorrow to elect a new government
If you have a vote and need some help deciding who to support, this summary of the Tory/LibDem’s record following 5 years in office may be of some assistance – http://www.dontbeafuckingidiot.uk/
the UK votes on Thursday to elect a new government
this is an opportunity to shape the future of the UK – to vote for the party whose policies you favour over the alternatives on offer
of course, if you live in England, I would prefer you vote for the Labour party – and if in Scotland, the SNP :lol:
but regardless of your political allegiance, if you have a vote – then bloody use it, ‘cos folk died to get you the right to cast a vote !
come election time, politicians promise voters the earth in exchange for their votes
it is common for opposing parties to scrutinize each other’s promises, ready to attack if those promises have not been properly costed
parties are generally careful then to specify how they propose to raise the money to fund their promises,e.g., a new tax, an increase in an existing tax, making savings by cutting expenditure on certain services
I say ‘generally’ because this time round, the UK conservative party is . . .
They have now gone into Conclave – a posh word for a secret meeting behind closed doors – and will remain there (apart from brief trips to the loo, or to the cellars to fetch more wine) until a 2/3rd majority agree on a
sucker successor to Pope Benedict
The process by which a new Pope is selected is shrouded in secrecy . . . Until now !
Madhatters managed to infiltrate the Conclave and secretly snap this pic on a cell phone . . .
At long f*cken last, americans will finally vote tomorrow to elect the next President of the USA. All the polls indicate it will be a close run race. Bur are Madhatters evenly split between the two candidates? Cast your vote below and let’s see if the madhatters vote mirrors the real thing.
Since this is only a bit of fun, cast your vote even if you do not live in the USA (after all, whatever bugger gets in, their foreign policies are going to affect the rest of us)
