Local election voting lunacy

(Last Updated on )

Nongyow is a natural Tory (as are most South-East Asians, in my experience) so, after reading all the election leaflets, she voted Labour. I’m a lifelong leftie, so obviously I voted Liberal Democrat. Maybe that shows how far from its traditions the Labour party has come.

But what worries me is that Nongyow and I cancelled each other out, and boosted the Conservatives.

I squandered my vote by going to the pub instead of voting. I’m a very bad participent in the democratic process.

Nice evening for a drink by the river, though.

I console myself with the thought that it would be inappropriate for me to vote in a local election when I don’t actually live there anymore. I’m not even sure I’m allowed to vote in local elections since I haven’t lived in the country for 10 years.

That means I don’t have to think about the fact that I’d almost certainly not have bothered to sort out a postal vote anyway.

And another thing. Since I lived in Wales, and there was no election there, it would have been pretty pointless.

BTW, David Cameron’s got one thing right. At the thought of voting Tory – I do indeed go green.
