[personal profile] typisch

My spoiled vote protest made no difference - Airbrush held Cambridge. And the Tories retook Newark :(

The turnout was very low. Lower than I'd dared think about. That worries me very much *sigh*

Someone made a promise to me last night I'm sure she regrets in the morning. But yes. Becky stayed over, which was nice, and we watched election together and I cooked (well, reheated) curry.

Yay curry!

Yay Becky!

Boo apathy :(

Boo BNP :(

And Well Done William Hague for falling on your sword in such a selfless way (shame you fucked up the campaign, isn't it?) And cross fingers Seb Coe will never again be name-dropped in a serious political discussion...

(Webcam search under way...)

A spoiled vote is as useful as not voting at all? And they aren't going to make any specific point if the odd few people spoil? It just seems a bit of a waste to me, really..

I don't think it's a waste, because you're still counted in the turnout figures. You've shown up and made some mark on the paper, which is far better than not bothering to get off your arse and vote at all.

Some of the results even went on after giving candidate numbers to announce the numbers of papers spoilt and *how* (voted for more than one candidate, no vote, etc).
