Hey — I’m back, rested and full of tasty, tasty NiÃ§ois and Provencal cuisine.
I got back just in time to vote, for what good that did with Bertie’s gang leading strongly in the current counts… argh!
For what it’s worth, I gave Patricia McKenna a preference, in the end. I was reminded that she’d been entirely on our side on software patents during her time as an MEP — so credit where it’s due, there; on top of that, a vote for the Greens is better than a vote going to Sinn Fein, after all, no matter what. ;)
