What about the abstention option? I don't vote for politicians, it only encourages them.

Tony

You've forgotten our local parties Clann Albannach, Plaid Cymru, and that way out west lot in Kernow.

You need a voting for my local loon/quine (in the vernacular for flash Harry's constituency in the NE)

And as for having a bell on your bicycle - you won't promise to keep his suit nice and white, and ask him, to lose a bit of weight if he can.

47 years of breaking bikes and still they offer me a 10 year frame warranty!

As an Aberdonian (born and spent first few years of my life there) may I just say how nice it is to see a bit of the Doric here on road.cc.

We're definitely getting more cultured Wink

Just been playing with the BBC Election Seat Calcualtor http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/election_2010/8609989.stm

and just for a bit of fun if the percentages for each party in the road.cc poll were replicated in tomorrow's general election the Lib Dems would romp home with 587 seats – a majority of 524, the Labour Party would have 33, and the Conservatives… 1, bet David Cameron would change his tune on proportional representation then Smile

Knowing my luck, that one seat would be his own and he'd still be my MP.

BBC Oxford News did their best to keep the drama going earlier, bless 'em... "David Cameron will be hoping to be re-elected to his Witney seat..." er, yeah, going to be a close run thing with the Wessex Regional Party, that one.
