We have a General Election here in the UK imminently, with voting next Thursday (7th May) Today, I spied on my way to School to pick up the youngest our local MP giving away balloons to kids as they came out of the gates.

Needless to say, I didn’t vote for him last time, and I won’t be doing so any time soon.

I knew there was a better than average chance he’d come and offer one, as I watched him pass over ‘gifts’ to kids ahead of us. When we met us, my daughter politely refused, and explained to me as we walked away that offering people free things was not the way to get them to like you.

I REALLY hope Mr David Amess heard her, because the time for real change needs to come very soon, and if you really think this represents a good use of your Campaign budget, we need someone else in power pretty damn sharpish. Also, helium is a non-renewable gas, and you lot wasting it like this? NOT IMPRESSED.
