Nerina Pallot updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@nerinapallot) on Wednesday (November 5), reacting to Barack Obama being elected as the 44th U.S. President. The British singer songwriter tells readers:
So I for one have stopped worrying and am enjoying life now that Barack Obama is the leader of the free world.
If any of you reading are nervous about this scary new thing called socialism, do not fear, my Dixie cousins. You may have less to spend on SUVs and too many pairs of kiddy-manufactured Chinese trainers, but give it a few months, and if you’re in the middle of a cholesterol induced heart attack, the paramedic will now administer immediate help without asking you for proof of health insurance first. No longer will people get to survive mammoth surgery, only to come round, get handed the bill and die of shock from being bankrupted. This is a lovely thing, we’ve had it over here for a few years now – although it’s a bit wonky at the moment – and once you get used to the strange comfort that comes from it you’ll wonder why you never had it before.
