I cast my vote yesterday.
Early in the day I heard that that Cameron fella in the UK was backing Dame Enda, which was a bit strange as I didn't think that UK Prime Ministers had a vote here. It must be something to do with the EU? So I hung around for a while hoping to hear how Merkel and O'Bama had voted but they were either being secretive or they decided to abstain
I gave Charlie my number one but I haven't heard anything about him being elected, so they must have lost my vote.
Of course, you lot who don't reside in this fair blighted isle don't have the fun and games of Proportional Representation [usually called PR, to save on ink] so even though the votes have been cast, we won't know the outcome for quite a while yet. My guess is late tomorrow, but some counts have gone on for a week or more. It all adds to the fun and tedium.
At the moment they are just opening boxes [a grand job if you can get it] and have been doing so since around seven this morning. When I was in RTE I used to work in the election centre which was a vast area [usually where they stored the outside broadcast vans], and the place would be chaotic with people running all over the place and throwing bits of paper around. It also meant working for anything up to thirty six hours without a break but it was a bit of craic. At least we got a good idea of what was going on before the rest of the country.
So it looks like we have a result – it's a fucking mess, if you can call that a result. One massive piece of good news is that James Fatso Reilly may lose his seat. There will be great rejoicing here if he does. The sooner the fat cunt goes the better… him and his plain fucking packages and his precious cheeeldren.
My prediction is that we are going to have to go through the whole fiasco again, and pretty soon too. The old gubmint is gone and the new gubmint can only consist of coalitions between arch enemies so I very much doubt it will last.
I'll vote for Charlie again when the time comes, if he decides to run. And I hope they don't loose my vote this time.
They have been opening boxes for about eight hours now and still no one has been elected.
Not that it makes any difference anyway.
They're all a shower of cunts.
