The UK has a General Election tomorrow (well later today, UK time) - here’s hoping for a change. A big one.

On the bright side… Lord Buckethead vs Count Binface:-

Lord Buckethead, Elmo, Count Binface, and some lunatic fringe candidates:-

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Sorry you and many others didn’t get that change Jason.

It would seem any of the people in the background of that photograph may have been a better option than what you guys got in the end.

 
 

I’ve been following the election the best I can on your Guardian site, there many high quality articles and points of view on there, and came across this riveting read:

Why is the president of the United States cyberbullying a 16-year-old girl?’…

I am posting that trying to highlight the way everyday people - without power or money behind them - are silenced or ridiculed, or made to feel inadequete or somehow wrong to do so, in voicing their opinions (and not so much about the politics).

Caring about the environment in a peaceful, simple and informative manner is apparently worthy of scorn for some. More time is spent on scorning people for raising issues than actually addressing the actual environemtal issues, well - that’s how it seems.

Tighten Up and then turn it all the way up to 11!
