How do badgers fair in a coalition?

Who’da thunk we’d manage to drag the election out this long, eh? Even as someone who loves politics, I’m starting to feel a bit fatigued by the uncertainty of it all.

Other political nuts are obviously getting over-tired and grizzly about the whole thing too – that’s the only excuse I can think of for Adam Boulton’s embarrassing temper tantrum yesterday, anyway.

My irritation about the situation though is being compounded by the endless comments in and by the media about the fact we are facing a second unelected Prime Minister in a row now Gordy’s pledged to stand down.

“We face a situation where none of the people who took part on the televised debates will end up leading us,” one hack bleated.

“The TV debates counted for nothing now there’s a chance none of them could be PM,” another commentator wrote on Twitter.

I hadn’t realised managing to stand up through three televised debates was the test that gauged whether you were suitable to lead the country.

I hadn’t realised that I was voting for who I wanted to be Prime Minister either. Am I the only person who was daft enough to vote for the MP who I thought was going to do the best job for my constituency, rather than voting in an X-Factor style popularity contest for a figurehead?

Anyway, whinging aside, any coalition could have some interesting outcomes for agriculture. I’d love to be a fly on the wall once any animal health talks started up between the pro-badger cull Lib Dems anti-cull Labour…
