Election Disaffection.....

So today's the big day. All the political ping pong and empty promises haven't done anything to make my mind up who I'm going to vote for. I'm pretty sure however who I won't be voting for, so that's a start I guess.
It was said to me the other day that it is nigh on impossible to find a honest politician, as even if that person has the best will in the world, he or she must follow the Party line even if they disagree with it - if they wish to have a successful and prolonged career. 'Nuff said.

I'm thoroughly disgusted with the whole expenses scandal, it was the final insult to the public after all the mistakes, dishonesty and incompetence's of the past. I guess this is what happens when any group is left to be self-regulating.

As someone with serious health issues I should be looking for the candidate whose party is promising the least cuts to the Health Service, but all parties if boxed into a corner with no escape (or wriggling room) would have to come clean and tell the truth, and that is cuts will have to be made regardless of which political party wins over. Cuts to all our services not just health.
Tough times ahead for all of us I fear.

Now who was I going to vote for again...?

Anyway now I've thoroughly depressed you, here's a photograph I took in better times to make you feel better
