    The Sun has been the most entertaining.

    I just found out TODAY when I went to the BALLOT BOX that some CUNT who was in my class at school is the Labour candidate

    How DISCONCERTING

    Their campaign was such a hot mess I didn't even know who the candidate was - I even got TORY leaflets, which is like UNPRECEDENTED here. But then they are an "ultra safe" seat. :gross:

    I find that most people that say that MOST people that say that, or won't tell anyone who they voted for, voted Tory. When I was canvassing, Labour people would tell you they were Labour, and the people in GIGANTIC houses in the posh areas would always say "I know who i'm voting for and I prefer to keep my ballot secret" or something to that effect.

    I can't stay up tonight and watch :(

    Well I COULD, but the thought of going to work feeling like SHIT with a Conservative government kills me. I could cope with feeling crap if I was more optimistic about the result.

    I wish I was going to a party like we had in 1992

    It was the most DEPRESSING PARTY EVER

    I remember 1992 very well :(

    That IS the one when Chris Patten lost Bath though, isn't it? That at least provided some local good news.

    I know.. I used to always stay up and watch or fall asleep to it, but the portable connection in my room is fucked, need an extra aerial or some shyt

    I'm annoyed that CUNT Jeremy Vine is doing the swingometer rather than Peter Snow

    Just back from voting and I've booked tomorrow off work so that I can get nice and drunk whilst watching the country go to hell.

    I'm just having images of the MELTDOWN on here if the Tories win.

    Kratz, most of all, would be insufferable. :D

    I don't see any alternative to banning everyone who voted for the Tories if they win. Someone should start by doing Broomhelga now.

    I really do see no excuse for voting tory. I can sort of understand the more impressionable swing voters who are disillusioned with Brown and have had it dripped into them by The Sun/Mail over the past few months, although that still seems stupid due to the fact that the majority of the tory MPs were the same ones there 10/20+ years ago innit. it's more the upper class people who are always Tory because of some sort of selfish superiority complex. I'm not a lord or anything, but i'm moderately priviliged, yet i realise that this was nothing more than luck. I could just have easily been born as the 5th kid to a single mother on a poor estate, so to have such a ME FIRST attitude really sickens me. I mean have a conscience you utter cunts.

    And that's before you get onto the civil rights issues, which are just too apalling for words. How can a tory voter look their gay friends in the eye, or even more bizarrely be gay themselves? MENTAL. And then more personally what the fuck is up with Cameron? There does not seems to be a single competent thing about him, he's like a little boy playing Let's Pretend. I wouldn't leave him alone for too long to do some filing in an office, let alone run the country.

    I don't think i can watch tonight.

    Back from the polling station. My walk to the village hall was interesting; it's a pretty long road (much fucking longer than I figured when I decided to walk it) and there are picket fences EVERYWHERE. COUNTLESS Tory ones "Vote For Change", quite a few Lib Dems also... and not ONE single Labour.

    This is a bad sign. :(

    The garden signs are usually put up by party activists, actually. When we go canvassing and come across someone who is voting for us and talking enthusiastically about the party, we'll often ask if they want us to come round and put up one of the signs in their garden for them.

    The pencil in my polling booth was all BLUNT. I had to mark over it a few times and it wasn't neat. :(

    The Tory candidate in my mum's area asked if she NEEDED A LIFT to the polling station :|

    She already sent off her postal vote weeks ago. Though she is quite the fan of them. :x:

    THIS.

    I keep getting told off for not being able to see the 'other side of the argument' but I can. I just think voting Tory makes you a bad, selfish person. Seriously. The 'me first' mentality is the ONLY justification I'll accept for someone voting Tory, and that is obviously massively selfish.

    I'm thinking the ones I've seen on fields and roundabouts rather than the usual garden/house ones.

    What the hell have they done to Google?!?! :evil:

    They have a running ticker for election news, but they've also messed the page up by putting sponsored links on the right and other unnecessary bumf on the left :grr:

    The Mirror is just playing tit for tat, in fairness, and they're the ONLY left wing paper to stoop to such levels. The Mail, Telegraph and Sun are ALL at it for the right.

    I'm on the GIN, albeit not quite yet, and intend to get NICELY TROLLEYED whilst flicking between C4 and BBC for most of the night.

    The fact I have to work tomorrow is being QUITE HAPPILY FORGOTTEN at this stage...

    I wonder if there will be a "were you up for Portillo?" moment this time.

    At least I work with a bunch of liberal tofu wearing lesbians who will be too busy crying into their hemp dungarees to care what I'm up to
