It's coming up to European election time. Lacking the glamour of the general election and the relevance of the local election, the European election can come across as a bit faceless and boring. You don't even get to vote for a person. Just a party (not the good kind). Here in the East, there are seven seats that are distributed to the parties according to the proportion of the vote received. Asleep yet?
Honestly, I am boring myself just writing this. Vote Green. Here are some Clerihews of three of the party leaders:
Party's the largest
Bunch of xenophobics.
(That's Greek for racist pricks!)
Lives in a mansion
Surrounded by Nitwits
Cutting workers' rights and disability benefits.
Is a chocolate egg
That likes to lie to you.
(One part of the sentence above is not true.)
If you think you can do better, why not write one for Edward Miliband and whoever is leading the Green Party this week? A small prize will be awarded for the best one in the comments below...
