Keep calm and carry on?

Well, that was a craptastically disappointing day. Not only watching the party I support and believe in (yes, still, despite everything!) getting crushed in the local elections, but then, rather predictably, watching the No campaign slowly roll its way to victory in the AV referendum vote. Alright, it's been pretty obvious for the last few weeks, or even months, that things would turn out this way but that still doesn't make it sting any less when it happens.

So I have been spending the evening drowning my sorrows in comedy sci-fi by hiding in my bed, avoiding all further political stuff, and listening to the audiobook of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" which is always guaranteed to lift my mood.

I'm not sure how well the Lib Dems can bounce back from this. Nick Clegg talks about dusting ourselves off and carrying on, which all sounds so wonderfully easy and simplistic when it clearly isn't going to be. Although it's stuff like this that really makes me more determined to get over my agoraphobia so I can do more to help out in the coming years. I hated sitting back and not being able to do much this time around, especially for something I believe in so strongly, so I really want to change that in the future. Fuck knows the party'll need all the help it can get!

Well at least there is also Doctor Who tomorrow. When all else fails thank goodness there is still sci-fi to turn to!
