Voting for Baltar
I knew I was doing a bad thing by voting for Baltar for Mayor of London. Two days in, and bendy buses were still on the streets and I knew we'd been betrayed.
On the other hand, there was that brilliant moment where his first meeting was with Iain Blair. The Darling of Chelsea had been mocked for wanting to reduce crime on buses - so, in a stroke of genius, he makes it the responsibility of one of London's least popular men. If it doesn't work, it's not Boris's fault. Genius...
Or so you'd think. The next day, by complete coincidence, the Met shoot a Chelsea barrister dead. It's like leaving a horse's head in the bed.
