Is anyone else finding that the election is intruding on their dreams?

Surely I can't be the only one who's having weird dreams about the election? Shortly after it was announced I had a dream that I was on the campaign trail with David Cameron and found myself at a buffet in a semi in Surrey chatting with him over the sausage rolls.

Am I the only one who can't seem to switch off from the election even at night? (I do have a weirder dream, I'm not sure whether I want to reveal it yet though.)

I had a dream last week about there being a landslide Labour victory. Was very vivid.

We had a by-election the month before this and I have been out knocking on doors canvessing for 6 weeks now ( someone save me from my aching feet ), my DD tells me that I am asking people if they will vote conservative at the next election in my sleep, I guess i'm just word perfect now.

I had a dream I couldn't find out who had won in my constituency - the TV/radio/internet kept switching off every time they were about to announce it. I ran down to the paper shop to try and read about it, but all the newspapers were laid out in single pages, that you had to put together. Argh! Just a standard frustration dream, I think, but with an election twist to it.

Dreaming of William Hague, Riven?

I'd be using carbolic to try and scrub that off my retinas.

Hope for your sake it wasn't sexual

Can you rewind your dreams? Sometimes I can. If he appears again, have a large paper bag handy to pop over his head.

And a gag.

Better still, chase him off with a broom and an attack dog.

He's a droning pest, isn't he?

Bet he doesn't let you get a word in either.

Or maybe your subconscious is telling you something you dare not admit in real life? Some deep and dark desire may be?

Riven, a plan for tonight:

  1. Befriend the dragon
  2. Set it on Hague


If you see any of the others there, let the dragon at them too.

Yes!!! Thought it was just me!

Do not wish to divulge details but I'm horrified to say it was Cameron!

KnottyLocks · 26/04/2010 20:32

You'll need more than a dreamcatcher there, Webwahm.

William Hague was on my train last week, with his missus. They looked utterly miserable & I don't think they exchanged 3 words the whole 3 hours. I have been dreaming of NC though - pretty mundane stuff though (I think)
