Business as usual

No doubt, even under a Blue-Yellow "Con-Dem" government which proposes to change our society beyond all recognition, there will still be plenty that's annoying.

Rudeness, bad manners, bad grammar, coarseness, stupidity, poor customer service, cold callers ... These things are surely so pervasive that we defy any government, however new and shiny, to eradicate them.

Hurrah! Because, deep down, we love a good moan. And what would we have to moan about if Britain stopped being broken?

Grumpy Young Women: writing about Broken Britain since 2009.

On the blog:

We ran a General Election Special this week, to have a little moan about all the small irritations surrounding the election. Shermaine launched the week with a poem, in which she covered canvassers, leaflets and leaders' debates. Read her poem here.

Personality does matter!

We are sick of people telling us to ignore personality in favour of policy, manifesto and campaign message. We've chosen a leader of our country, and personality is a big part of that, says Rosie.

Never discuss politics over the dinner table ...

In the second of Rosie's election-based rants, she reminds us why that old etiquette about keeping politics away from the dinner table is still very sensible today.

Sam P

And when it was all coming to an end, as we all watched aghast as David and Samantha simpered into Number 10, Sam was busy compiling her Grumpy Election Review. She covers it all in one great swipe.

Onwards!

That's quite ENOUGH politics, thank you very much. Next week we'll be getting back to talking about all sorts of things. Watch out for blogposts about: advertising; weddings; Jamie Oliver; speed dating; and the word "literally".
