A Bit of Real Journalism

All my instincts are being brought into question, Newsnight and Question Time need to come round my house and place me on a pedestal for all politicians to come and gaze at. For I tell you this is what one looks like, a real life in the flesh one. Yes it’s a DUM DUM DUUUUUUMMMMMM:


My vote on May 6th could go in any direction I really cannot decide who’s box to put my utterly desirable tick into (please don’t consider yourself included in my options Nick Griffin; I’d rather lick an old tramp’s balls than vote for your lot). It’s more than likely that I’m gonna go to one of the big three so let’s have a little look see at my options.

THE LABOUR PARTY: The incumbents. My moral compass tells me to go with Labour, in power since 1997. Read the tabloids and they really have it in for Brown, now he’s doing stupid interviews with Piers “vile-face” Morgan to win votes. But it seems to be working, the massive lead the Tory Party had late last year is fast disappearing. I like Brown the politician as opposed to Brown the personality. My favourite politician is David Miliband, the current Foreign Secretary, if he was the leader of Labour, as was rumoured about to happen a few years back, they would be guaranteed my vote, alas their other “big gun” Alistair Darling is like a wet weekend in Brighton.

THE LIBERAL DEMOCRATS: The Liberal Democrats have a leader, in the Sky News Leaders Debate picture he’s the one at the back you never quite noticed. An inoffensive man, he probably eats, sleeps and does a poo like the most average man in Britain. They do however have a not-so-secret-weapon in the form of the economic authority Vince Cable. The man who predicted the credit crunch and the recession; although he hasn’t always being right he has the most respected opinion on all things financial in an election that is all about the economy. The Lib Dems also believe that education is too important to make cuts to and, as any free loading student will tell you, they’re right.

THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY: Now before you all start having a go, I know I said I loathe the Tories and would never vote for them. But, and it’s a big but, they seem to be taking this election more seriously than the other two. David Cameron falls under the category of someone I should hate but don’t; the Shadow Chancellor, George Osborne, falls under the category of someone I should hate and do. George did, however, send me a letter asking me what I would like him to do with the economy, he also sent it to everyone else in Britain but at least he wrote which is more than Vince or Alastair did. In my capacity as a up and coming journalist I recently attempted to get an interview with each of the party leaders and I’m surprised  to say Cameron was by far the politest in telling me no.

So you lot there you have it, who shall I vote for? I really don’t know so I invite you and yours to come and canvas me.
