Election results a-go-go. While getting on with the writing for Thor. Midnight oil, don't you just love it?

Anyway: two random snips:

First, from my mate on the subs desk at the Glasgow Herald.

Another elderly man confessed: “I used to vote for Tony Blair but I stopped voting for him when I found out he was a Conservative. I’m old Labour you see, so I’m going to vote Liberal Democrat.”

And from Popbitch:

We'd be getting more excited about the election if the leading MPs were more like George Brown, the deputy leader of the Labour Party during the 1960s. A noted drunk, George's finest hour came at a London diplomatic reception. As the band struck up the first number, he approached a potential conquest in a long, red velvet dress and asked, "Beautiful lady in scarlet, may I have the next dance?"

"Certainly not!" came the reply.

"Why not?" asked George.

"In the first place you are drunk. In the second, this is not actually a waltz but the Hungarian national anthem; and, thirdly, I am not a beautiful lady in scarlet, I am, in fact, the papal nuncio Archbishop Mancini."


And on that note, I shall return to my organofluorine chemistry.
