UK Election Special; a week to go!
I would never attempt to influence the way anyone votes, but here is my analysis of the Political Parties on offer for the upcoming bun fight.
Conservatives: Responsible, financially safe, grown-up, realistic, intelligent, the voice of reason.
Lib Dims: I'm not sure if they have any policies other than banning burkas, legalising Marijuana, and bunging a 5p tax on cardboard Costa/Starbucks coffee cups, so I can't really comment.
Greenies: Flowers, puppies, summer, kittens, bicycles, leaping lambs, floral-patterned Hunter wellies, and Laura Ashley dresses. A festival goer's option; yah.
Monster raving loonies: Frolics and Fun for the sub 80 IQ brigade. Err; no thanks.
Ukip: Spent force.
Labour/Trades Union: You'd need to read 'Das Kapital' to understand these Merry Marxists. You'd also need to support DAS KLASSEN STCHRUGGLE .....Oh, and you'd have to adore the fragrant Diane Abbott (apparently someone did!).
That's about it. Have fun voting, and don't blame me if the wrong bunch are elected; you were warned.
We went with friends to the Scallop festival in Whitianga; a charming
seaside town in the Coromandal District.
Had a great time...5000 people, lots of wine...

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 45 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), a Border Collie/Black Lab' cross called Bok, a cat called Freddie, plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
