A pest-control company on the North Circular has a board by the side of the road advertising it's 'pest of the week'; sometimes, its rats.
Other times, it can be cockroaches, or fleas, or mice.
This week, the board announces its pest of the week as 'politicians'.
Yes they are pests, but the suffragettes fought hard all those years ago so we got the vote; Offsprog 1 is coming up from Brighton and we are going to vote together, as she hasn't voted before. I am proud of her for making the effort to have her voice heard.
