Hopefully the use of quotation marks in the title of the post will alert people to the fact it is a deliberate typo. It's a reference to the fact some politician did actually release a leaflet with "erection day" instead of "election day" on it. It was beautiful.
As you're all no doubt aware the list of things that annoy me is remarkably large for someone who has such an awful amount of patience. One thing that definitely does annoy me is political apathy. I just generally don't like people who complain about something but then never do anything about it when the chance presents itself. If you're going to complain about politicians the least you could do is vote for someone who has views that are similar to yours. If you can't find such a politician, you simply aren't looking enough. At the very least you can't vote for someone who isn't the worst of the bunch.
To that end I will be voting today. I might have even voted by the time you read this. Though of course we won't know the results until tomorrow. Actually if there isn't a majority we might not be sure of who is running the country for a few weeks yet. If there isn't a majority and no coalition is formed we'll even have to have a whole other election. Yikes.
Though I am pleased to report that no politician has personally canvassed here and knocked on my door themselves. I guess I live in a town that isn't worth their time.
