Forgive me, reader, for I have sinned in my thoughts and in my words. My shocking Yazzmonster-style confession is that a tiny part of me had hoped there would be a lower turnout at the UK General Election. I wanted to do a PooterGeek post featuring an Iraqi TV reporter interviewing British people talking about how the struggle to the polling station past inconsiderately positioned wheelie bins and other roadside IODs (Improvised Obstructive Devices) had thwarted their efforts to participate. The punchline would have been a Baghdad studio discussion of whether or not Europeans were ready for democracy yet.
