Weekly Wrap-Up – 26/04 – 02/05

So… besides the Huawei scandal, it’s not been a big week in terms of headlines. I’ll grant you that.

As I’ve previously said, it feels a bit odd for me to be writing about something that isn’t Brexit. The European Parliamentary elections are around the corner and they will be the clearest reflection of public opinion since the 2017 election, yet politics continues to truck on obliviously in the meantime.

It’s only going to get worse from here, though.

At the time of writing, the local elections have already taken place and the counting of votes is currently underway. As of 2am, no results have been announced, but the rumour is that the predictions are coming true – these elections will be a colossal failure for the Conservatives.

This is probably going to be the last weekend before things might get really messy. Next week, the results of the local elections will likely have struck the fear of God into the ruling parties, and an absolutely nightmarish campaign will begin to try and dissuade us from voting for any party that isn’t Labour or Tory.

It’s going to be hell on Earth.

I can’t wait. Can you?
