So what is timesnewroman? It's not the font, rather my take on the age we live in. The USA is the new Rome and the times we live in are timesnewroman.

What difference does it make?
Amazing, a whole election campaign and not a word about it here until now. The campaign has practically been invisible. A few posters on lamp-posts and election leaflets via the mail. I'm struggling to come to terms with who I will vote for, rather than vote against. That's easy - The SNP (Wankers - totally ineffective in opposition and a crowd of opportunist chancers to boot who will change their hue depending on who they are up against); The Conservatives (A shower of Bastards still!) Liberals (Political invertebrates) which for the Scottish Parliament vote leaves things tricky. I can't stand the Labour Candidate, and there is no-one else I will vote for in the Constituency Section do I skip it or what? In the list section, where you get to choose a party or raggle-taggle individual I chose the SSP candidate last time, who won a seat. This time however , she is a Solidarity Candidate and the SSP are also standing which means both will probably lose - clearly a lot of hate there. I just reckon I may even go Green and that is like me making my mind up right now. God I've decided to vote Hippie as I write this! Council Elections extremely easy, I'm voting Labour. Well actually I'm voting their third choice as number 1 and that's it no 2nd or 3rd cos of their other candidates 1 is a complete tosser and the other a non-entity. There. Done until I get to the ballot box.
