Peter Worthington has had an amazing life. And his obituary, which he wrote himself, certainly has an arresting opening line.
Firstly, I'd like to congratulate Barrack Obama on a landslide victory following on from a campaign which has embraced and captured the hearts of Americans. His election as next President is a monumental historical event, and I truly believe that he is capable of improving the current financial situation. However, we have yet to see any concrete evidence of policies which will systematically change the electorate's lives for the better. I'm sure he is full to the point of bursting with political breakthroughs, but the hype of the election has in my eyes clouded over this somewhat.
It's a shame that the British public cannot encompass elections here with the same passion. But that's probably down to the archaic features of the Government and the lack of millions of pounds worth of advertising funds. Still, wouldn't it be nice to seeÂ people crying tears of joy in June 2010Â (or maybe earlier). Â
