UK Elections

I have received more election leaflets in the last one month slipped under my door than pizza delivery leaflets in the last one year. It is no surprise then that the reason is that they all want my vote on the 6th of May.

There’s David Cameron on a glossy pamphlet urging me to vote for Conservatives to help change Britain. “We can’t go on like this”, says David. There’s this interesting smear campaign projecting David Cameron as two faced.


Then there’s Gordon Brown’s message about how his leadership will get us through these tough times. Conservatives have launched a marketing campaign surprisingly with Gordon Brown as the primary face. See below

With elections just a week away now and the third and final prime ministerial debate going on Telly right now, I am scared that one of these clowns will be the Prime Minister come next Friday. God Save Britain.

But then, there’s a scenario even worse than that – a hung parliament!


London Colder than Antarctica

I picked up a copy of the Evening Standard on my way home today. Apparently, London is colder than some parts of Antarctica as temperatures plunged to as low as -10C overnight. The Telegraph had a similar article

Look at this satellite image. Britain is completely covered in snow, the heaviest in 50 years.


Plunging temperatures have caused major problems with transportation as grit supplies run low. Apparently, half the workers did not go to work on Wednesday due to the heavy snow. Unfortunately, I had to wade through a foot of snow and it took me a few hours to get to work.

I was hoping to find a sunny Gibraltar next week when I am there but it appears that I am not having great luck with the weather. Well, as I said in one of my earlier posts, the period between 1st Jan and 15th will be turbulent and unfortunately, that seems to be true.
