Thursday is going to be a pretty heavy day – I’ve got to vote for my choice of MP, mayor and three local councillors. The polling station, which normally hosts a playgroup and evening dance classes, is a fair stroll around the block, so I’m hoping that the weather isn’t too bad. I’ve got Thursday and Friday off work, so I can make time for putting my cross in the boxes then sit back and watch events unfold. Probably I’ll do it multi-media style – a bit of Radio 4, a background of BBC News and the Channel 4 alternative extravaganza, and maybe the odd foray into the Internet to see how things are going online. I don’t mean to be flippant; well I do actually, because we’ve got it so easy.
