And Then We Have A Result....

So the results of the Eastleigh by-election are in with all interested parties proclaiming varying degrees of excitement about percentages. Not my idea of excitement, by the way.

Only 52% of the good folk of Easilyled bothered to vote. Some voted for the Libdribblies; some voted for the Ukipulloutallies; some voted for the Coneliterlies; some voted for the Labotomies and the rest voted for the rest. Another eleven of ‘em.

However, if you do that arithmetical thingy and proportion the percentages of the 52% who voted for the various parties you’ll find they only got a little bit of people each. Real people, not percentaginerians. Sorry if that’s all a tad technical but it’ll become clear with the last sentence. For further clarity, the next sentence is the last sentence. Therefore, it’s obviously a resounding victory, with 48%, a full 16% ahead of the nearest rival, for ‘we honestly don’t give a fat rats ass for any of you.’

Quote; Charles Bukowski.

“The difference between a democracy and a dictatorship is that in a democracy you vote first and take orders later; in a dictatorship you don't have to waste your time voting.”
