it's an election

so again, despite promising i wouldn't i'm stuck again watching the election results coming in.

coverage so far - depressing. channel four appears to think having comedians on constitutes some sort of comment. comedians and lauren laverne, who appears to be trying to carve out a channel four presence for herself in the wake of bbcr6's demise. as interesting as watching butter melt.

sky, which i'm about as wont to watch as one of rupert murdoch's stool samples is staggeringly dull. they appear to be confused with actual news. perhaps they should set kay burley on fire. i would gladly pay mr murdoch for that.

the bbc. to be honest it's like watching an episode of loose women the comment is so inane with andrew neil being a particular lowlight. so low he could possibly get himself a job on live from studio five. jeremy vine, a man with no dignity, has a 'swingometer' getting filmed on an unsteady cam so unsteady it's giving me vertigo.

the tories remain non existent so far in scotland with the snp getting a bit of a caning leading to the inevitable whining about lack of media coverage. how is this even possible. ian gray is so unrecognisable that's like getting beat by the invisible man. or at least jim murphy, a man who i believe is in roget's as a synonym for insincere.

england's still looking difficult to tell. the lib dems are doing their usual thing, coming third, and looking burst. tories still not ahead with some 140 declared. whoever wins the greek debt crisis and that whole situation, which seemed so difficult for all the parties to actually talk about prior to the vote, will be the 'gift' the winner gets in the morning. now there's a cheery thought...
