Colonial Election News

Some youngster named Barack Obama seems to have won the election for Governer General of the Thirteen Colonies. Congratulations to him and good luck doing a difficult job!

While this is no doubt a momentous moment in American history and politics symbolically, it’ll be interesting to see how much actually changes. I backed Barack (quietly, this is an English political blog!) because I thought it’d be better for us not to get dragged into anymore wars, and he seemes the candidate most likely to do that. Plus Palin was a bit much. Shame Ron Paul dropped out, really.

Anyway, that’s enough from the other side of the pond. Back to England soon, the one remaining colony of the British Empire!
