"It was a huge election. I was shocked." [May. 22nd, 2014|09:40 pm]

[Wait, I felt something! |okayokay]

I am reliably informed (for some values of reliably, as this is via a friend in Florida who is getting her reports from The Guardian site) that the Tories are taking a drubbing in the current council elections across England. She opines that the Tories will be sad come morning. I am quite alright with this (also, in the UK it's already morning) as it's well known that I would rather like to punch David Cameron right i the feels.

It's also notable that the Liberal Democrats are taking the pounding that I've been expecting. If you're going to so devastatingly betray your electorate in the manner that the LibDems did, then expect a good deal of revenge voting from the populace. I just wish the voting population in the USA would do this with the Republicans (although there's a good point to be made that Obama's second term was, indeed, a national voting population's kick in the slats for the Rethugs.)
