Urban cup storage system (c)
I'd thought maybe there would be election related activity but I had to go first thing to be second in a queue of two. It's one of the joys of a representative democracy to watch as they read your name off the electoral register, copy the number beside your name onto a list for each ballot and then give you a voting paper that corresponds to your position on the list. And it is still generally asserted that it's a secret ballot. Sure, it would take some effort to link the ballot papers back to the voters but it can plainly be done.
And then to take your papers to the wee booth and wielding the stubby, blunt sword of democracy, to make your big illiterate X beside one of the assortment of scoundrels praying for the opportunity to dig their snout into the parliamentary swill bin and gorge. Cynical, moi? This is what our forebears fought and died for. Shall I stay up and watch some results trickle in? Unlikely. Can't see any Portillo moments although it would be cheering if Ian Gray felt the urge to admit he's completely blown the campaign.
Joy. Anyway, someone at West Register House has developed this ingenious storage system for their empty coffee cups. Or maybe it's intended as a loo for the pigeons. If it is, they're missing it by some margin.
