    The 1970 election was unexpectedly rainy & England's recent early defeat in the World Cup are often said to be factors that swung the result towards the conservative party.

    I saw him on the BBC News website putting something to a van or something - that must have been his stint as a milkman.

    I just love the way the party leaders contradict each other and say different things to get people to vote for them.

    Ironically enough, I get a lot more excited about General Elections as an adult as I would have done over Christmas and birthdays as a child - I suppose that it is democracy in action and as citizens, we have a chance to have our own say and doing something about it. Almost anyway...

    Got to Vote at 1.15 pm, and of course it was pouring with rain (just like on the day of the local elections back in May) and I have wet feet - listened to the World at One (no political talk there of course), and heard that Sir Paul McCartney Christmas interview on my personal radio as I was walking to the Polling Station. Glad I have done the deed this time around.
