    Whichever side of the political spectrum you fall on, this election has been pretty awful for name-calling, disagreements, spiteful memes and propaganda. I’m glad you’ve been able to discuss the issues without it descending into that. Thanks for hosting #WotW

      Some of the memes have been awful on both sides haven’t they? I have had a couple of discussions where I’ve disagreed with someone, but even when I’ve presented actual facts rather than memes they would rather believe what they want to believe. That’s their choice, I’m not going to call them names because of it. x

    Wow you did well . Some people’s mud slinging made me see them in a different light as resorting to name calling showed more about them than the people they were slagging off

      Tina, you should know me by now, I don’t do mud slinging or name calling. In fact I respect that other people see things differently and never expect anyone to totally agree with me. I’m not a people pleaser either and expect to have my own opinions respected too. Thanks for stopping by x

    All over now. It has highlighted some interesting aspects of human nature this week. I’m not going to comment on the result, but I’m always puzzled by the number who don’t vote. Average turnout since 1918 is just over 71%, I understand. Looks like it is going to be a similar number this time. Where are the other 25+%?

    Your election has been in the news here in the states too. I am not looking forward to our election next year. What a mess! It does make you want to go live in a cave.

    I was shocked with the results of the election but it’s happened and there’s nothing we can do now.
    I was pretty shocked with some people on Twitter last night when the exit poll came out. I unfollowed a few. It really showed a different side to them. 🙁

      I kept off social media last night Kim. I knew how it would be. Thankfully, I’ve managed to avoid a lot of the drama today too, nothing like a bit of Christmas shopping to get away from it all 🙂 x

    same with any election some are happy some not but no amount of abusing people verbally is going to change the result.
    Totally agree it has been one of the most important elections for many a year and was nice to see a relatively high turn out so a lot did take it seriously

    I tend to stay away from politics to be honest, I have no love for any of the parties but I did cast my vote so now I can continue to moan privately about all of them LOL! I do think though that the world is getting gradually nastier generally and I do wonder what went wrong. They say charity begins at home and in my view its the same with everything else. Be kind, make your own decisions and find out your own information. Everyone can make a difference no matter how small.
