Pretty sure I went to The Killers on the New Band Stage for that.
Killers and Hope of the States.

I don't regret that choice at all. I don't think Killers had even released or had ONLY just released the new album.

Hope of the States is the only CD I keep in the car.

What's h done now? I just seen him admit he was wrong about not voting and telling people to vote Labour.

His YouTube channel is some amount of shite.
Robert Webb wrote a great article about why you should vote in response to Brand back when he first starting spouting revolution bollocks. Presumably that wasn't what changed brands mind though, he probably met a nice lady in Labour or something.
Hate that the rubberbandits have hitched their wagon to his star, makes them look a lot more ignorant than they are.
The Robert Webb reply that time was excellent.

Russell Brand is sort of the Michael Moore of England. He has a function of sorts.

Looking forward to watching election results on TV all night tonight.

Debating a tactical vote rather than voting for who I want to vote for also. Almost makes it exciting!

That's why we end up with a two horse race. That, and first past the post.

Turns out my constituency is quite a key one with a <3% margin in the polls.

i was almost going to change my vote to a tactical one but i decided i couldn't, and so i'm going to stick to my guns and go with my original choice.

i'll not stay up too late tonight. i'll stay with it until around 11 and then i'll hit the hay and get up again around 4 and watch it for a few hours before i head out the door for work.

FYI Ferguson had a 29% turnout recently, which is more than double than the last election but still a massive LOLWAT.

My constituency has had the same MP for a while, she's an independent. Last time she got 63% of the vote with the Ulster Unionist/Conservatove second with 20%.

The last few times the DUP haven't contested the constituency. So I think I'm going to vote for the independent to make sure the DUP don't get a foot in the door down here.

We? You mean they, the UK?

Ireland has proportional representation.

I'm pretty sure The Killers hadn't released the album yet
