    I wont vote, havent done so since iwas 18 which is......5 years ago now.

    Its a sad day but i absolutely do not think there is any point, there is not one party that actually listens to people or gives them any sort of choice in any matter.

    We live in what is 3/4 of a dictatorship already, no1 will change that

    I know I won't be voting for Labour. The country's become a ***** hole with them in charge. I'm keepin up the family traditions and voting Conservative.


    Odd, no BNP vote yet?

    I agree this current Dictatorship have removed and eroded more of our traditional freedoms in the last 10 Years, than all those that have gone before them.........

    However, I don't buy that sort of defeatist attitude...... Get off your butt, think about what really matters to you, and vote!!

    There are at least 2 Parties on my list that would make a fundamental difference to how this Country is run........... The BNP or the Commies, take your pick!

    Im really not convinced by the conservatives, although i agree at this point in time they seem a better option than labour.

    Worse than that here in scotland i get another opportunity to vote for another pointless party who wont do anything different or have any real control.

    What is the point in the scottish parliament? Architectual merit, other than that im struggling...

    Although I have voted conservative most of my life, never labour, I would consider other parties in a local election.General election is another matter as I would hate to see the current robbing control freak government get back in by default.

    It's only voting time for approx 1/3 of the country. Some of us have got to wait another couple of years before we can put democracy into action. Not that there is much point round here as it is one of the safest Tory areas in the country.

    My normal rule is to vote for whoever was second last time - whatever the party. All I vote for is a change.

    There are people who would argue that if you give up your right to vote, you also forfeit the right to complain.

    All politicians piss in the same pot anyway. The vast majority are only looking to line their pockets rather than making things better. Most seem to forget they need to be careful who they step on on the way up as they'll probably meet them on the way back down!

    Just my 2p's worth.

    I'd be interested to hear from anyone who voted for UKIP, what is their opinion on the, now widely acknowledged, view that UKIP are merely the 'official' protest party........??

    Also about the financial 'irregularities' that have come to light recently..?

    There are also those that argue your right not to vote is your right to compain.

    Agreed about politicians, very few have any interest in making things better. They all have their own agendas

    Everybody has a bias, i myself do obviously and unfortunately there isnt one party that fits with this so i wont be voting for any of them.

    Bunch of ignorant, delusional robbing bastards that they are lol

    True, but all the unheard voices like yours could mean the current numpties do or don't get back in for another term. As you say, it's unfortunate there's not one particular party that ticks (or crosses :think:) all the boxes without them being one of the more 'radical' parties.

    Let's start the ASN Party!

    Free road tax for all, no fuel duty, insurance premium tax abolished and the wanton destruction of Gatsos, SPECs and Truvelos positively encouraged for starters...

    Can you imagine how popular these proposals would be? How many million motorists are there in the UK? The revenue would have to come from somewhere else though.

    I think all current Audi drivers should not be taxed anymore on any motoring issues or speeding fines, and nobody that doesn't already own an Audi can ever buy one.
