The Endless Electoral Cycle

So there is a General Election (GE) approaching very quickly, here in the UK.

It’s not a matter of immediate change. Let’s be honest, nothing will change your day-to-day routine from the second that a party is elected, or at least I hope not.

But eventually… changes will come, even if they are minuscule.

For better or for worse? Only time will tell.

The reason I call it an endless electoral cycle; apart from the bleedin’ obvious, is that once a party Wohoo! has been in power for some time… a couple of terms, they always seem to F**** it up, one way or another. (I’m gonna get ya’, get ya’, get ya’, get ya’)

It’s not necessarily a bad thing, this cycle. If we break it, we won’t move forwards (or backwards), but at least we won’t be standing still eh? I hope.

Change is good.
