Especially in the Electoral Commission.
They mosey along from week to week, answering the odd phone call, overseeing an occasional by-election.
Then every five years they have an intense burst of energy, burn the midnight oil, work round the clock, attend to the most interesting thing to happen in their department since – well since the last election, five years ago.
So what do they do in the last six days before the election? Must be frantic right?
I don’t know, probably go and sit on Brighton beach, creosote the fence, take the horse for a walk, work out the pension rights yet again, celebrate Roodmass.
The one thing they don’t do on International Workers Day is go to work……
Nor on the two days before that – because the banks are closed apparently.
So in the last six days before an election, they only work for three of them.
Give me strength! What do they need the banks for – to bank the bribes?
If you are short of reading material – I do recommend this. I stumbled across it today. Excellent stuff.
