The Anonymous Widower

A Rum List Of Candidates

When I went to vote today, there were eleven candidates; three from the major parties, one from a one-issue party and an almost complete spectrum from the ultra-left to the far-but-not-ultra right comprising the remaining seven. Some of the last group would have been certified by some dictators and despots of the past.

One of the candidates didn’t even have a cv. Would you vote for someone, who you know nothing about?

I think the result in this constituency is a foregone conclusion, but isn’t it in hundreds of places.

Democracy is a wonderful thing, but it could be improved a lot!

  1. I went along to vote around 7pm and the place was practically empty – the chocolate biscuits arrayed on various tables outnumbered the voters by about 20-1!
