I was going to post more mathematical details about the unfairness of the first past the post system. It doesn’t seem all that important right now.

Instead here are some random quotes and favourite lyrics.

Pictures in a room
I can’t take it anymore
Have I awakened to a strange land
Pictures in a room
Somebody help me please
‘Cause I can’t sing the paeans of hope in a torn world

Runrig – from Big Songs of Hope and Cheer

 

‘Some men have taken seeds of truth,
And planted seeds of hate,
This way has never won a war
And I fear that when harvest comes
You’ll see your freedom fall on stony ground’
Runrig

The Doctor: Because it’s not a game, Kate! This is a scale model of war. Every war ever fought, right there in front of you. Because it’s always the same. When you fire that first shot, no matter how right you feel, you have no idea who’s going to die! You don’t know who’s children are going to scream and burn. How many hearts will be broken. How many lives shattered. How much blood will spill until everybody does what they were always going to have do from the very beginning. Sit down and talk!

The Doctor: Do you know what thinking is? It’s just a fancy word for changing your mind.
Bonnie: I will not change my mind.
The Doctor: Then you will die stupid.

What kind of heroes
Here for us now
Stone leaders, stone preachers
Minnows on flow
Runrig – from The Old Boys

We’ve got to learn to speak the truth to fly
And it’s a beautiful sky
Runrig – from Gabriel’s Sword
