And the europop makes me dizzy

Elections tomorrow, of course - remember to vote, UK peeps! Even if it's the seemingly useless Euro elections and all politicians are assholes, it's worth voting 1) to keep the BNP and UKIP out, 2) because it's proportional representation, so your vote actually means something, and 3) I've completely forgotten 3 because the UKIP guy was so annoying on Newsnight. *stabbystabby* Um. Ah, yes, to stop people being able to say that voter apathy means they're satisfied with the government or hate Europe or think the EU is pointless. At least turn up and spoil your paper, if you can't bring yourself to vote for any of them.

Watching The Apprentice and then seeing clips from Prime Minister's Questions, you notice how alike they all are - mendacious, blame-shifting, ambitious, point-scoring, morally bankrupt gits, the lot of them. (Except James.) The fake chortling of the Labourites at Nick Clegg was kind of pathetic.

Good things: Jacqui Smith and Hazel Blears both gone from the Cabinet! If only they'd quit completely, rather than just their Cabinet posts. Wonder if we can get rid of Geoff Hoon and Jim Murphy. For some reason, I still mostly feel mild pity for Gordon Brown - he's a bit tragic now.

Three (three!) great gay stories today - Obama announces July as LGBT Pride Month on the 40th anniversary of Stonewall, New Hampshire legalises gay marriage, and a gay penguin couple adopt a chick. Eee. Penguins! I'm going to Edinburgh Zoo tomorrow, penguin parade! Yay! But I've just realised that the schools will be off for the election, so the zoo will be full of children. Boo.

Ahhh, and an old HIGNFY on Dave with Diane Abbott is thankfully reminding me that some politicians are great. (Also that Michael Buerk saying "gimp mask" is funny.)
