General Election. Democracy. Ed Balls. I was up for the better part of the night watching the results from the General Election. So you will excuse me if don’t write in complete sentences. Hence, the first 3 words. Here are the highlights:
-The above photo is of David Cameron and his wife Samantha (great name BTW). David will continue to be our Prime Minister for the next 5 years. Then he will leave to be a stay at home Dad. Kid not. They have 8 kids. Kid not. Ok, they have a lot of kids but not quite 8. Because as we all know: ‘Eight is Enough’. Sam looks a bit tired. I know how she feels. Dave looks triumphant…and posh.
-Labour Leader, Ed Miliband suffered a crushing defeat. The worst since Neil Kinnock. Yikes. Bye Mr. Ed. I prefer your brother…just saying.
-Boris is back! The London Mayor will see out 1 more year of his term as Mayor. He will continue to be a brilliant buffoon. He will return to the Commons after 7 years. He is now the MP for Uxbridge.
-Ed Balls, Shadow Chancellor loses his seat in Commons by 422 seats. Ouch. Recount might be in order.
-Nick Clegg, leader of the Liberal Democrats (who were previously in a coalition government with the Tories) hints that he may be leaving politics after a dismal show by the Lib Dems. He will now be stay at home Dad. His wife is a high powered solicitor/lawyer who makes ‘bank’. They and their 3 children will be fine financially.
-Nigel Farage, leader of UKIP is in a pub in Kent having a pint (it is 9:34am) as his future of his political life and party hang precariously in the balance of probabilities. Meaning, he will probably now just go away.
-And last but not least….this blogger is going to go count sheep or perhaps votes (they are still counting them after all)
