HOLDING NOSES, VOTING FOR A MAYOR
|EYEWEAR'S CANDIDATE FAVOURS TAXATION OF ANYONE WHO DOES NOT READ POETRY|
Some of the choices offered are colourful and absurd - there is a candidate whose platform is all about how marijuana is less harmful than alcohol, and a Polish prince who wants to fight a duel with Nigel Farage - and there are worthy candidates for parties like the Greens who won't win but maybe should - and then again the two front-runners.
Eyewear, the blog reminds you to vote today, and responsibly. You may have to hold your nose if you go with either of the main candidates - both their parties have lately seemed to play unwelcome race cards - but one of the candidates was born poor and stands for a very diverse platform - and the other is one of the richest men in the city and represents a party of the satisfied elites.
Democracy is not always best stewarded by the Sharpes of this world, but some high-born seats are just too comfortable to truly afford a view of ground realities.
