I find it mildly ironic that the first post I will make on this LiveJournal will be about politics, but as Cameron has been our Prime Minister for all of two hours it seems fitting. He's being absolutly slated on facebook. People are reacting as though the world is going to end!!! Give the man a chance is what I say. I agree he's smarmy, but there's no point in judging a book by it's cover. It's the decisions he makes over the coming weeks, months and even years that will matter, not our opinions on him as a person. And the outrage being sent in my direction for not condeming him outright is downright amusing. People still seem to be clinging to the stereotypes. I'm really hoping he proves me right, not them. Meh. On the plus side, I'm not sure the British public will be so apathetic about politics again ... the younger generations are being inducted into it via social networking. An interesting side-effect of facebook ...
Anyway, I'm Lauren :) I'm new to this, and will put some profile information up shortly to attempt to give some type of insight into the crazy world inside my head! I'm within 10 days of finishing a degree in English Literature, and have a job doing admin for a clinical trials unit. I love reading, I hope to start writing again soon, my current obsession is playing LOTRO (a massive multiplayer online game - it's awesome!), and I spend a lot of time watching dvds :D
Hmm ... I've been enjoying winding people up on facebook about politics so much I've forgotten what else I was planning on writing here! Meh!
