We went into town this morning in order to vote. In town we met a friend, and stopped to have a moan about the difficulty of deciding who to vote for - who was the 'best of a bad lot' . I'm afraid that I was having a real moan about this. Our friend pointed out the one good point about our choice -
"Look on the bright side, Mike. At least this side of the water we don't have to think about Trump as one of the possibilities!"
Oddly enough I found this reflection really quite cheering.
