US Election: Oh thank Christ

That was my reaction when I woke up yesterday morning to the news that Barack Obama had retained his hold on the White House.

It’s fascinating to me how my own country (UK) and America differ despite our historic similarities. The UK is, on the whole, vastly more liberal than the US. I don’t know a single person that I think, were they American, would have even contemplated voting for Romney. Everyone is delighted and relieved that Obama won, as his policies and ideals are much closer to what we take for granted as being sensible and normal over here.

Donald Trump, a prominent Romney supporter, posted on his Twitter page “The world is laughing at us.” No, Donald. The world is enormously relieved.

Apparently blogs need to cover a certain niche in order to attract readers. My aim is not to attract readers. I don't deny it would be nice not to just be spouting to myself, but the reason I set this blog up was to give myself somewhere to write down my thoughts. If anyone reads them, that's a bonus. This blog will cover a mix of things - anything that comes to mind that I want to write about. I make no promises about how often I will publish new content.

    we in the UK may not vote for Romney, but we voted in Cameron here, which probably amounts to the same level of stupidity! 😀
    Sorry if this comment seems strange, and rather random, but I really love your blog, and what it stands for (i.e writing your thoughts, not according to a niche)
    Keep writing!
