We’ve been glued to all forms of media in this country over the past week because we’re all struck with election fever! Well, at least it’s something to talk about other than the weather, right?!
I’ve also noticed that our political system is, shall we say, a tad confusing. I seem to have spent a lot the last week explaining our muddled way of doing things to you lovely “colonialists” 😉
So, with that in mind I’d like this post/comment section to become a place to ask questions (if you have them).
In the mean time, I highly recommend this BBC News site which should be retitled Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About the British Election but Were Afraid to Ask.
I’m prepared for the probability of no comments and lots of tumble weed since you all came here for knitting, not politics, but there are very few “safe” places to discuss this sort of thing without it devolving into a shouting match. Although British political supporters do tend to be quite polite about that sort of thing!
