Indecision, what else?

As expected, the country has decided to be indecisive leaving Parliament hanging. Fun, no? Entertainment guaranteed for the next few days. But for now, here are a bunch of things one discovered on election night:

1. Where TV license money goes. Specifically, there is a chap called Jeremy Vine who does all sorts of comedy - for instance, he walks around in a virtual Downing Street setup overturning blocks or stones or something to find out who can walk into No 10. He also has this other set he walks around in which tops CNN's holographic reporters (that Jon Stewart makes so much fun of). Even the American people don't seem to appreciate such nonsense, so I am not sure what makes the BBC think they can use our money to come up with this naatak. Oh, and who exactly stays up all night in front of Big Ben to watch the election results being projected on it?

2. Glenda Jackson holds Hampstead & Kilburn. The margin was 42 votes. Yes, 42. I told you we voted in the wrong constituency. And well, Clegg's last minute call to Beckett did not have any effect.

3. I know. The answer is 650. Yes, small island, 65 million give or take. I discovered that only China has more seats than the UK. So yeah, 42 votes is not that uncommon.

4. Vindicated. Cleggmania was pretty much made up. All people discovered was that the man exists and he looks good on TV.

Oh you disengaged voters of Kilburn and Hampstead. A mere 66% turnout? Tsk.

And the election here might just as well not have happened...

Also, the appeal to Beckett did work. As the great man said, "Fail again. Fail better."

Feanor: Yeah, instead we voted in a safe yellow constituency, the lone yellow dot in a swathe of blue. Tch.

Though even the Tories weren't expecting to come second place in Cambridge of all places.

Cat: Ha ha. And it is not over yet - in another six months, you will have to do it all over again. Perhaps Scotland can abstain.

Lots of people are disillusioned these days because of politics dirty tricks. No one trusts them anymore.
