I don’t normally do politics on blogs or social media – goodness, I’d hate to influence peoples views, and I do have that level of clout, y'know - but the general election, complete with a surprise Tory majority, is worthy of my comment.
Whatever your views on the winners, I think they should pass a law that dictates that if you couldn't be bothered to vote, and you didn't have a good excuse for that, don’t whinge about the outcome.
On top of that, whosoever thought that the coupling of the two Eds – Miliband and Balls – was a winning combination needs their heads examining. Quite apart from the fact that one came across like a wet lettuce and the other exudes the grace and personality of a raging bull elephant in mating season (but with far less charm), there was another inherent problem.
These days it's the in thing to combine the names of famous couples – you know, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie became Bragelina - but if you try it with Ed and Ed what do you get?
MILIBALLS, that’s what.
Ye Gads! We could have been the laughing stock of Europe if they’d come to power!
