Personally I say plant politicians not trees, but you do what you can I suppose.

A blind man and a double amputee planted 10,000 trees. What's your excuse?

The problem with the Greens, and don't get me wrong, I am gonna vote for them, because, well, you know what Einstein said about doing the same thing and expecting a different result? Besides, I agree more with their stuff anyway.

But yeah, the problem is the financial system. They won't get the backing. Whether purposefully to ensure they're unsuccessful, or simply because most of the rich people will be too scared of getting taxed.

Sure, you might get a few people investing in tidal power, wind farms, solar roadways and what have you, but most of the things that drive our economy, I think they'll dry up. Or clam up, might be a better description.

It's the entire system that's broken. When a small percentage of people hold that much wealth, they hold too much control, too much power.

Without addressing that problem, I don't think the Greens will get very far.
 
In one of the most bizarre concepts I have seen in some time, the Labour Party has felt it necessary to do something to combat the left wing ideas  of the Green Party.

I'm assuming that by "UKIP of the left" they mean a party rapidly increasing at their expense, rather than calling us a bunch of barking mad, swivel eyed loons.

It's been a while since I've been to Wintersett (Okay, Anglers Country Park if you insist). It had a nice sunset waiting for me. I think it had missed me.

Got a puncture on the way but I'm getting bloody organised at sorting 'em these days. 'Bout time I suppose.

Geese are the rowdy lot of the neighbourhood, just as I was leaving dozens of them came into land honking like a gang of belligerent five year olds on their new tricycles. A couple of swans looked up with a slightly bored twinkle of disdain in their eyes as the lake prepared to settle down for another night.

Here's another one. (You just wouldn't let it lie!)

Okay, so you'd expect some sour grapes from some people, and there's inevitably going to be some loony theories kicking about.

But I'm having a hard time deciphering this one.

The film, from Sky News, shows what appear to be bundled "as if sorted" ballot papers, or do they bundle them before they sort them? That wouldn't make sense to me but it's a possibility. I didn't watch it, so I don't know.

The time displayed is 00.31. And the video says "Live". I guess Sky might have been replaying old footage but displaying a "Live" tag meaning they were covering the election live. Pretty unprofessional although not impossible. I feel like I'm clutching at straws here though.

At 00.31, was the counting well under way, or was there still bundles waiting to be counted?

I suppose one of the things that gets to me is the archaic way that this process works. A pencil mark on a piece of paper handled by various human beings at different times.

I can see plenty of opportunities for things to go wrong.

In this day and age we have the technology now to vote on policy. Not for a party or a person. We already entrust that technology with our money and other various important bits of data.

No one believes that one person or party encompasses all our viewpoints.

And yet here we are, still putting our little exes on paper, in pencil, and handing it over to others.

Maybe there isn't anything dodgy that's gone off in this referendum.

But there's still a better way.

+Boston Mess re: the bundled votes - I can remember the process but it could simply to make it easier to sort & count. There come loose in those big boxes and it's easier to sort a bundle of n votes at a time.
As for the timing, it was still quite a few hours before declaration so unlikely to have been counted by then.

Had a brilliant weekend at #BJC2015. Went to Sheffield last night and watched the spectacular Water on Mars. They were absolutely brilliant and their hour long show flew by as fast as one of the many hundreds of objects they manipulated between themselves. Even if you're not into juggling I can't recommend it highly enough.

And the highlight of my day today came while I was quietly sat playing with my balls and Steve Mills walked by and told me I'd got a nice shuffle. Yeah, that's the Steve Mills, inventor of the Mills Mess. Legend!

Tried to post this yesterday but the pics wouldn't load. Google's made me a little story though, that was nice of 'em.

This is just off Sustrans 62 I think. #MountainBiking #Cycling

It's not a real castle, it's a seventeenth century folly. Seventeenth century? Close enough then.

If advertising works, and it does, or they wouldn't spend billions every year influencing us as to what to buy, then we don't live in a democracy because advertising is used in the same way to influence people into how to vote. Is that not true? Now what?
