I am disappoint.
61% voter turnout? Puh. Leeze.
We need some major electoral change in this country. Starting with proportional representation. I really can't understand a) how 39% of votes = a majority government; and b) how people are OKAY with this?! I've heard a few "voice of the people" comments, and I have to say: bullshit. If we were looking at a minority government, with seats apportioned according to actual voter support, I'd totally be OK with that. Not happy, but I could accept it. The situation as it stands blows goats.
Also, last night I dreamed I went all Buffy the Vampire Slayer on some Tory ass. Only I was too short to really be effective. And their heads were too thick to bash. Depressing. (Though I did land a few good drop kicks!)
In real life, I'll be mailing my MP (who rocks my finest hand-knit socks off) and asking how she intends to approach accountability for Harper...and where she stands on the notion of electoral reform.
I'm gonna need a sturdier (and taller!) soap box...
