Democracy Day

Once one has braved the leaflet-waving folk outside the polling booth, waited in the queue for a lot longer than usual, cast one's vote, and contributed to the school funds at the cake stall, what next?

A night in front of the TV watching Antony Green, psephologist extraordinaire, and various talking heads say, "These are early figures...", "It's too early to say...", "If this swing holds...", until finally someone cries, someone smiles, and we can all go to bed.

Hooray for democracy!

P.S. - I'm not staying up until the result is known this time!
