Sleeping With The Enemy
It’s finally official; David Cameron is the new Prime Minister and the Tories are in power all be it “shared” with the Liberal Democrats. Oy vey.
As someone who voted for the Lib Dems I have mixed feelings about this.
- I voted for Lib Dems because I did not want the Conservatives in power and, you know, believe in socialism. Now that Nick Clegg and his troops are bezzy mates with David Cameron’s posse I can’t help but feel they have let me down; they’ve sold out man!
- This is the most power the Lib Dems have had for decades. They won enough seats that the Tories needed them to form this coalition and maybe now they can make an actual difference rather than being the “wasted vote” party.
I guess I should concentrate on point number two but seeing David Cameron outside Number 10 was close to making me vom.

When my sister and I saw this on the news this morning, she said “It’s bad that someone sold them, let alone that someone bought them!”
If she can see it, why can’t they? She’s nine years old!

Just Say No
I know I’m going to sound like a grandma, but after reading the following news article all I can say is “What is this world coming to?!?”:
A three-year-old boy was found with a small amount of cannabis at his nursery school.
The youngster was found with the drug by a teacher at the school, which has not been named, in Glasgow.
The boy was unharmed and did not consume the drug.
A spokesman for Strathclyde Police said: “We can confirm that police were made aware of an incident within a nursery school on Tuesday November 21 involving a three-year-old boy who was found in possession of a small amount of what is believed to be a controlled substance.
“The substance appeared to be old and how it came to be in the child’s possession is unknown.
“No charges are being preferred and the department of social services has been advised and a report is being prepared for their information.”

Did he win? Nah, they’re doing a recount in Florida or something. Man, I wanted Gore to win, he has the cooler name and that. I guess that statement shows how much I know about American politics. Some people feel very strongly about this whole thing, and so they should. It’s your country and all. Well I’m off to trip the light fantastic or maybe watch some TV, I’m not sure just yet.

Slow News Day
I switch on to watch the news and one of today’s headlines was:
The Queen Mother is recovering at home after falling as she was getting back into her car following a dinner at a London hotel. An eye witness said: “She was getting into her car when she lost her balance and fell. It looked as though she tripped on her dress.”
Are we running short of proper news or something?
