Mmmm... Don't quite get it...

Is that some strange amalgam of Borat and My Little Pony?...

OK, so there is a good giggle for the "Two world wars and one world
cup"... Is this where we Crusade to win again, from the inside? ;-)

Meanwhile, there is smaller giggle for the instructions for polling
(voting) have been updated to be more up-to-date:


Can I put a smiley face instead?

The Electoral Commission says the best way to make sure your vote is
counted is to mark an X in a box. But a smiley face or anything which is
interpreted by a returning officer as an expression of preference "must
not be rejected if the voter's intention is clear"...

Can I take a selfie?

There's nothing in the law that specifically bans taking photos, but the
Electoral Commission strongly discourages any photography...

And for the biggest headline of the day?...

"Ladbrokes' head of political betting Matthew Shaddick said: “This is
the biggest non-sporting event the bookmaking industry has ever seen
with £100 million expected to be wagered by the time the polling booths
close on Thursday night...”."

That's it then!... At £100 million just for one day, we should let the
Bookies run the treasury! ;-)

(A scary aspect is that the listed odds are literally all over the shop.
What a way to gamble!)

Make your vote count!
