It's hardly the fate of the world or been filled with the vitriol and loathing of the US elections last year, but here on the other side of the Atlantic we have ourselves an election all of our own to take us into Brexit and God knows what on the other side of it all. That takes place on the 8th (next Thursday). The battle is pretty straight forward: either we're getting continued, sustained, and deepened conservatism from incumbent Prime Minister Theresa May, or we get taken in a totally different direction by 'mad-lefty' Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. The liklihood is that May wins, but her previously Iron Lady-lite persona has been heavily damaged and Corbyn's stock has risen in a good number of circles - having been 'un-electable' all of six weeks ago, he's on course to take more seats than his predecessor. There are many irons in this fire though with the mainstream parties not really involved in Northern Ireland, the SNP seeking to keep hold of their utter dominance in Scotland and Plaid Cymru trying to make in-roads in Wales. And lets not forget to mention the potential resurrection (or confirmation of death) of the Liberals and lest we forget UKIP and their apparently obvious, yet slow demise. So what do you make of it all? Do you care? Are you feeling dirty for wanting a Tory win, or vice-versa, a Socialist in power? Going to vote for one of your local parties or one of the smaller ones? Or are you just bemused by the whole thing?
