Todays the Day

Yes, after 4 weeks of posturing and posing and kissing of babies Election Day is here. I bet you Americans are jealous of us right now - only 4 weeks of electioneering. We've had our first ever live TV debates. We've had laughs and groans (thanks for that, Gordon), we've unexpectedly agreed with people on occasion (even with Nick once or twice) and we've yelled at the TV in frustration when no-one has answered the question.

But it's here so remember to get out and vote today. Exercise your democratic privilege and remember that women died so everyone could do this, and that people all over the world can't for many reasons who should be able to.

Just one thing, before you place that X in the box of your choice, please cast your mind back to the 1980s and remember what the Conservatives did to the NHS, to public services and to schools. Bear in mind that the ME, ME culture pervading the country today is their legacy and above all don't forget that it was them who stole Leonie's milk!
