eu elections

Not to state the obvious, but I am so, so unspeakably depressed that we've elected two members of the BNP to go and represent us in Europe. That's just. Yeah. Awesome. I hope all the people who didn't go vote in those areas because of their political disillusionment or whatever are pleased with themselves. You know what, if you feel like voting is just a matter of choosing the lesser of two evils? That's sad and everything, but always vote for the lesser of two evils! You know why? It's less evil!

We had more or less the same thing happen. The guy who got the most votes (by an absolute landslide, in fact) belongs to a rapidly-growing right-wing party whose members are in the news mainly for making asinine comments about immigrants, feminists who are just asking to be raped, and how homosexuality is precisely the same as pedophilia and goat-fucking.

I'd feel even worse if I hadn't voted. At least I've tried.
