Herself likes listening to RTE on the radio.
I know this because now that she has moved downstairs I can hear the radio through the locked [and bolted] door. I really must improve the sound proofing?
Anyhows, for the last three days there has just been one topic of conversation on all programmes all day – the fucking elections.
Here, we had four separate elections on the one day. Well, two elections and two referendums but it amounts to the same thing. We were to vote on two changes to the constitution to remove two paragraphs that never should have been in there in the first place. Then we had the European elections and the local elections. Boring, tedious and as far as our individual lives are concerned, irrelevant.
On Friday night it was all about predictions and opinion polls. On Saturday it was all about tallies and opinion polls. On Sunday it was all about first results and predictions. Today it’s all analysis and telling everyone what they really voted for [the Green mob did reasonably well which is a clear message from the electorate that “we all want Climate Catastrophe fixed immediately at any cost!”].
The only interest I have in any of it is in watching the UK results. According to the Meeja the Brexit voters didn’t really mean that people want to leave the EU – sure you only have to see the resurgence of the LibDems to see that.
Democracy would be fine if it weren’t the voting lark.
