I AM SWITCHED OFF

April 30, 2015

I am at the stage now that I refuse to listen or watch ANYTHING to do with the election other than factual reports that explicitly do not include ANY politician spouting rhetoric or hyperbole, that includes the news! BUT, as an avid reader of two daily newspapers, being a Huffington Post subscriber et al, even I cannot escape some of the dirge that abounds as lies, more lies and counter lies abound.

This morning I read that Nige F is setting the police onto the Beeb for alleged bias against him and UKIP. He bitterly complained, after the last televised multi party election debate, that the audience was heavily left wing biased. I never watched the debate but the Daily Telegraph (yes I know it is a right wing Tory sympathising paper) exposed the fact that there WAS truth in Farage's claim apropos that particular event.

BUT; the basis of Nigel's complaint today centres on a woman comic on "Have I got News For You" making satirical comments about his bid for the seat in Thanet South(?). She said she visited there recently and had been there more times than he had! I watched the programme myself. She was quite funny and she did say that. But what on earth has got into him? Why would he make a total pratt of himself by reporting it to the police, claiming it contravened some archaic election law? He revels in media attention when it suits him and throws his dummy (and the baby) out of the pram when it doesn't. He will get far more adverse PR from whinging than ever this woman's casual and brief satirical remark  could do.

Meanwhile Red Ed meets up at dark o'clock at night for an interview with Russel Brand. Now I don't actively hate many people BUT I do not just hate Brand I despise him. I think he is a cretin, a hypocritical, low life. He is as funny as getting your foreskin caught in your zip!  Milipede claims it is all part of his new "meeting the people ethos". News for you ED, Brand isn't even a part of the human race far less a "person" Another Labour election gag that backfires.

Anyway, I am robustly determined to avoid all sound and images of any of them spouting their bile and nonsense, the  election  can't end soon enough for me. I predict a hung parliament and all the hype and sh*t that will encompass as the SNP and whatever remains of Clegg and Co trying to sell their souls for power. Until the next Government is announced I am staying switched off!!

David, Please do not tell me that you have already thrown your laptop or whatever out of the pram no,no,no,no.....   After all ,we all need to let off steam??? I thought of doing the same the other day, but then I suddenly thought that it would be bad for me, cos my pram and laptop are my refuge, for then I would not be able to tell the world what a shambles our "leaders" have created  by their present antics over the ********(Sorry, I have used that BAD word again) We can see better things going on in our local Zoo monkey house if worst comes to worst, but  we still need to let off steam from time to time so, throw rattle out but keep laptop etc in case 3rd world war starts tonight, which would give us something different to moan about.... or even learning that Eton had gone comprehensive!!! God forbid,
