I'm quite sad that I'm not in the UK to vote today - I didn't register for a postal vote in time, and even if I had, it probably wouldn't have got there in time, given that the ballots are only posted out 11 days before the election, and need to be back by 10pm on polling day. French post just isn't that good - nor are many other countries, in which British expats are effectively disenfranchised, even if they are still entitled to the vote, which expires for us unlike citizens of other countries.
However, that means I'm looking at today purely as an observer - and from an outside point of view, it's brilliant. The Sun particularly excels itself today, with this front cover:

Poppy said: "The basis of Lockean thought is his theory of the Contract of Government, under which all political power is a trust for the benefit of the people.
"His thinking underpins our ideas of national identity and society. Please don't let those who seek to ban our beauty win. Vote to save Page 3!"
Who knew Page 3 girls were all about Lockean thought and Contract of Government?
