Occupational thoughts

Covering life on the home front.

Election results from the local elections coming in and they’re not looking pretty:

The scum have arrived in town and they’re here to stay.

In other news we got two bikes stolen. Christine left them unlocked outside for a while then saw people riding away on them. She still hasn’t called the police.
The thieves don’t realize that while Peter is in Belfast that those bikes are my only form of transport. Dam I can’t wait until I get an electric moped/flying carpet/personal teleporter/Segway.
Someone somewhere is stealing a lot of bikes as it seems to be a regular occurence. Why don’t they steal SUVs?

I finished the second main week of exams. What remains is History of Germany from 1919 – 1945 and Physics. The holidays are soon upon us – and so are the results of the European Elections. Good Night!

  1. You don’t need an A-Level Gov’t and politics qualification to understand this simple system! I have read the stuff about that course and it looks to me to be aimed at people who know fuck all about any thing politcs related. It seemed to me to only include thing that anyone with even a moderate interest in politics already knows. I bet most councillors and many career politicians don’t have a qualification in ‘government and politics’. Quite right too, our system of government should be accessible to anyone and easy for all to comprehend.

  2. That map got updated a little later with the counties of Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Shropshire eventually falling to conservative control.
    Bristol however stood fast as a Lib Dem stronghold.

    It’s also useful to point out that this map shows ‘overall control’ so although there may be a majority of conservative councillors in some counties, the individual councils can have an overall majority of other councillors.

    It really takes a GCE in Government in Politics to understand how this complicated system works.
