I've always voted labour and I no doubt will again this time, even though I'm no fan of Brown. I thought Clegg won the debate yesterday, and I don't think it matters that much who wins. I think it will a hung parliament with the Liberals and Labour hotch potching together a deal.

I reckon its a hung Parliament as well. I've always been conservative so thats where I'm going this year but I live in Labour land so I dont expect my vote to count for much :D . I was impressed with Clegg FWIW

nick clegg did indeed walk off with the honours last night, but it's a piece of p1$$ for the lib dems. they can tell us what we want to hear and promise the earth, safe in the knowledge that they'll never actually have to deliver it

having said that i'd vote for them in a flash if they had a serious chance of becoming the govt, as i reckon the other two need a good kick up the crimper and it'd be interesting to see if cleggy & cable could do any better

but meanwhile back in the real world i'm not sure who i'm voting for yet


PS who voted BNP? whoever you are, go shove a cactus up yer @r$e

None. They are all in it for themself, they are all scummy b@stards as the expenses doo dah has shown. Whoever you vote for is no better than what we have now. A shower of useless, selfish, lying b@stards. The fact is, most of the MP's were born with a silver spoon in their mouth and are looking to replace it with a gold one. It really doesnt matter who gets in, different personnel, same results.

On the day that Gordon Brown finally fired the starting pistol on what is expected to be the closest general election for decades, here is an arresting - and rather depressing - thought from the Electoral Reform Society.

Some 25 million voters in safe seats will not see a real contest, according to the ERS. As a result some 382 MPs are effectively ‘elected for life’, in seats that are not only ‘safe as houses’ but even ‘earthquake-proof’.

The winners of these seats could be announced today, the ERS concludes – there is certainly little need to go through the formalities of campaigning.

‘A hearty congratulations to all our new MPs for a hard fought campaign,’ Dr Ken Ritchie, chief executive of the ERS said today.

‘Having won the backing of their party members, they can now pack their bags for Westminster. These winners will take their seats in Britain’s Safe Parliament.’

Voters will never be able to boot these MPs out under our present electoral system, Ritchie says.

‘Most will leave office on conditions of their own choosing after careers measuring into decades. They are likely to include our future Prime Ministers, our future leaders of the opposition, and all the great office holders of state. They form a class of MPs that are, quite simply, elected for life.

‘2010 offers a tale of two elections – and two electorates. One that matters, and one that doesn’t. And for over 25 million of us, who just happen to live in safe seats, this contest is already over.'

Ritchie’s point, of course, is that the electoral system needs a radical overhaul. The ERS proposes a ‘Single Transferable Vote (STV)’ system, which he argues would ‘make all seats competitive at a stroke’.

‘The money, the time and the leaders would stop chasing the few of us with a vote that matters,’ he says.

‘The expenses crisis awakened people to the inability of ordinary voters to hold these people to account. And for any naive enough to think the crisis might trigger a political earthquake, remember these seats are earthquake-proof thanks to our antique voting system.’

So what do you think, then, has the Electoral Reform Society got a point? Do those of you in safe seats feel disenfranchised? Do you feel that your vote on 6 May will make any difference? Or do we need to overhaul our political system and introduce some kind of proportional representation?

Link.



So there it is. If a majority of the country decide to say "sod it, your all worthless" it doesnt matter.

All your vote is doing is giving the safe seats an indication of which way to place their vote, not that it matters.

and Labopur have really improved things in the past whatever years  :D

They are all scum. Lib Dems are the only ones honest enough to say they'll raise taxes and what they can actually do, but they'll never wni

And Bav, I have no idea who put BNP, but my mates at work who are not white and took that test all scored higher than me on BNP!!!
