After what seems like forever the car crash of an election campaign is over and we get to cast our votes on who gets to run the UK for a few years. This has extra weight as it is likely to determine the next step in the Brexit saga instigated after David Cameron felt threatened by Nigel Farage's UKIP. Seems Nige' already has another party planned. He's determined to mess up this country and manages to fool people into thinking he cares about them. Boris Johnson seems to pull off the same trick by constantly lying and hiding from any real interrogation. ![ay0uag6dgs.jpg](https://img.esteem.ws/ay0uag6dgs.jpg) I have seen pictures of people queing to vote around the country. It was raining when I walked to our village hall to vote. That may put some people off, but I met a couple of people I know there. Turnout will be crucial, but in our constituency the Tories have a huge majority. The previous MP was ejected from the party for voting against their Brexit plans, so they have found someone with less principles to take a safe seat. I am voting against the current government and picked the party with the best (remote) chance of beating them. I would generally vote Green even though they have little chance of winning anywhere. They do currently have one MP in Brighton. Some will say voting is irrelevant, but I think Boris and Co are quite happy for us to think that. Maybe they have schemed to make things seem even more chaotic to turn people off politics. They are succeeding anyway. I am hoping that a lot of young people will be fired up to vote by the news they see the older generation make of politics and the environment. I will not be watching the all-night TV coverage as it will just annoy me. I will see in the morning how things have turned out. At least politics on the UK passes off fairly peacefully and a change of government does not result in violent purges. I feel for anyone who experiences that and this is part of why I value my democratic rights. Peace.
