Postbox Fairy

(no subject)

A few months ago, the_alchemist asked if I'd ever seriously considered becoming an MP.

It had never crossed my mind before then, but when she said it, I had a think, and went actually, yeah. I reckon I could do that. For various reasons (wanting to complete my actuarial qualification, for one) I don't think now is the time, but there may come a point where I give it more serious consideration.

The reason I'm suddenly posting about it now is that last night I went along to a 'Question Time' session for all the candidates standing in our constituency; and I reckon I could've done better than at least one of the candidates (the UKIP guy) with no preparation; and about as well as most of the others with sufficient preparation. The only one I would have been nowhere near is our current MP, Peter Lilley, and since he's had decades of Parliamentary experience, that's not surprising.

Which is as much as to say, I'm still undecided how to vote on May 5th.
