The Liberal Democrats seem to be following the ol’ MMOG Hype Cycle; a blaze of publicity and hope offering people a fresh alternative to the tired old system they’re all sick of, then strong initial performance building up confidence that they really can be a player, but when it comes to the crunch and actually plunking your money(/vote) down it turns out people aren’t that keen on a change after all and go back to the more traditional options.
(I knew that rank in Perform: Biting Political Satire would come in handy)
I knew they should have put welfare epics in their manifesto.
The LibDem’s share of the vote actually was higher than the last election, but since they have to get twice as many votes to win half the seats, the outcome – as intended – was never in doubt.
Pfft. Should have taken a page from Obama’s book; don’t let the voters see you’re useless or worse until *after* the vote. Noobs.
I thought the US political system was bad, you guys have Warhammer Online running for office!
WTF is a honeyfugle?
