Echoes of Flavio's Ghost Dreaming

I'm one of those foreigners Farage wanted out of here. I haven't got around to getting my British citizenship for the simple reason that for most of my 27 years here I haven't had the thousand pounds plus for the fee and there was little benefit for me in getting a British passport.The only thing I cannot do here is vote in the general election and there would have been at least one occasion in which I would have sorely regretted that vote.

The other side of that is that I live here, I'm not going anywhere (unless the Farages of this world have their way) and I do feel I contribute and receive from this land, hopefully in equal measure. My vote would have made no difference to the result of last night but I do feel I should have 'been there'. Maybe it's time to start saving the pennies for that citizenship application fee.

My livejournal friends' page, as opposed to my FB and Twitter feeds, has been quite quiet today. It's not the end of the world here, mind, even though it is a serious drawback. There probably will have to be a more organised counter-pressure to many of the things the Tories will want to do and implement, rather than people just signing e-petitions and the like. We have to wait and see how it all turns out, I suppose.
