So it's finally here. And I have never known a General Election like this.
I will, of course, be voting, because - for me - not voting is simply not an option. But I don't think I've ever been so unenthused about an election as this one. The Conservatives are lacklustre and have elected a weak yet authoritarian leader, who clearly doesn't believe the policy (Brexit) the electorate has asked her to implement. They don't embody small-c conservative principles, being little different from Labour on the diversity politics, big state, environmentalist front.
Yet the opposition is far, far worse, headed by a man who loathes his own country and would sell us down the river in a heartbeat, with a shadow front bench that veers from crisis to crisis & couldn't be trusted to run a whelk stall.
So I will trudge to the polling station today, and do my bit. But I'd be lying if I said I expect to wake tomorrow and feel hope. No matter what the result.
See you all on the other side!
