My mum has a burning hatred for trade unions because of something that happened a good 50 years ago. She also hates the Tories. And Nicola Sturgeon, and by extension the rest of the SNP. Her last Lib Dem MP was Jill Swingset, and she recognised that she was daft too. Not really into environmentalism and thinks Patrick Harvie is daft.

Elections must be hard.
