Politics

There’s something about politics isn’t there, that just sets the world on fire. John Leathley, the UKIP PCC who I interviewed both a few months back and a few days ago, has just been in the national papers for some highly inappropriate comments he made. Let’s talk about that. What I’ve found interesting is the way in which the political landscape can be shredded. One day I interview him about his own misfortunes and then a few days later the entire world is looking at his mistakes.

There’s something to be said about the speed of political change in this country but I don’t think this is the place for an indepth discussion about it. I’m not saying that I’m politically apathetic because I have extremely strong views on which party I think should be in power in the next few days and Milibae The Movie is currently my soundtrack.

I’m not going to discuss this country’s messed up electoral system either, or about the experience of growing up under Cameron and Clegg.

I’m currently debating whether to live-blog the election or get some writing done amidst the constitutional crisis that might unfold over the next few hours or days.

But first, in the interests of dedication to my degree (totally dedicated…) I’l watch A Doll’s House.

Peace,

Emma
