Well, a little around three hours ago Prime Minister Theresa May has called for a General Election and I am already tired of the media reporting and I’ve got another seven weeks until Election Day (June 8th) and the harping and bemoaning after the result. Is there such a thing as election reporting fatigue?
But this does drag up a recurring question – exactly what am I voting for with my all powerful X?
- Is it Mr(s) Somebody
- Is it Mr(s) Somebody representing This Political
- Is it This Political Party
- Is it all of the above
- Is it none of the above coz we don’t know
People griped about not having voted for TM to be PM, well I’ve never had a paper asking me to select a PM. I’ve also never had a tick box for a coalition so absolutely nobody ‘elected’ the Government in 2010.
So, batten down the hatches for political fliers filling up the recycling bin. Go raid the charity shops for cheap DVD’s to avoid the endless media drivel. Deactivate your social media accounts as opinionated ‘erberts get hot under the collar over trite trivialities.
Already the media reporters have nick-named this the #BrexitElection, well only if you (the media) harp on and don’t give equal time to issues such as education, NHS, social care, police and justice, defence, taxation, benefit system AND how changes can be implemented, costed and monitored. But I am a stupidly common sense semi-intelligent person, so I know that ain’t gonna happen.
*sigh* if I go missing again, I’ve gone into hiding, or hibernation, or been committed…
