Just because I don’t ever write about politics on here (or any of that religion malarkey, come to that) doesn’t mean I don’t hold firm views. As a one-off, I’m very keen to say ‘Nice one, son’ to the Obama fellow. I watched events unfold live in the early hours of this morning and confess to feeling rather emotional as the newly elected President and, cliché alert, Leader of the Free World addressed the euphoric masses in Chicago. The election of a black U.S. President had seemed unthinkable really and I’m thrilled and heartened by the unexpected response of an electorate I had little or no faith in until yesterday. I’ll stop there.
