A slight difference of opinion

19 Apr

I couldn’t go to the seaside and not take a picture of seagulls, well actually Margot took this but that’s just nit picking.

The parliament that England is the mother to has just voted for an election by 522 to 13. Now don’t get me wrong I’m all in favour of elections, have one every year (a la Chartism) if you will. Vote early, vote often is my motto. No, what boils my renal filtrate is the continual news media banging on, speculating, asking the same old same old rubbish of the same old so-called experts and commentators over and over and over and over for six whole goddam weeks. (I know other places have it much, much worse but that’s their problem) It should be the law that the news people announce the election and then STFU about it.

You might think that there is some subtle visual pun about the gullibility of the electorate in this picture, you might very well think that but I couldn’t possibly comment.

    These two look stoic.

    I think newspapers offer a certain distance from it all, but 24 hour news services have become something of a blight, definitely on this side of the Atlantic.
