ELECTION SPECIAL STAMP

Is there a general election next week?

Really? You'd never have guessed, what with the incessant news coverage, irritating canvassers with clipboards, the overuse of the words "change" and "different", and all those annoying fliers arriving by the dozen every day.

All of this has finally got to us, and we're having a General Election Special this week in the run up to 6th May, when we'll go and put our cross in a box and hope that's the end of it.

Come often to the blog this week and follow our election irritations. And tweet us with your own grumbles and gripes.
