Eastleigh voters spoilt for choice.
You lucky people! Eastleigh voters that is. Talk about spoilt for choice. Mind you, I'm not sure what kind of turn out the pundits are predicting for Thursday's by election but if the number of people that Channel 4 News were able to muster for last nights interrogation of the four main candidates is anything to go by it seems unlikely that there will be any crowd control issues. I think that Chan4 made a mistake in not substituting Harry Hill for Krishnan Guru-Murthy as anchor man but that's only my opinion of course. John O' Farrell gets way out in front in the "most interesting" category simply by being outed in the Mail as "The Sickest Man In Politics". Wow! Who will prove the "stroppiest woman"- UKIP or Tory? I don't know but Harry Hill would have had a way of finding the answer: LibDem's Mike Thornton is a Business and Development Manager and a regular churchgoer. Fuck me Mike! Calm down. Calm down. Oh well! I suppose that in the party of crooks, liars and fat gropers an honest but dull candidate is like the one eyed man in the kingdom of the blind. If I were an Eastleigh voter I think that it would be a toss up between Wessex Regionalists, TUSK, Elvis Loves Pets or possibly the Beer, Baccy and Crumpet Party. The rest of the field is made up of an assortment of worthy peaceniks, god botherers various, an English Democrat and the very laudable National Health Action. Did I mention Raving Loonies?
