So you're not too keen on him then?
If the turnout at the general election was 10%, there would be a lot of "news" for a day or two, but everything would carry on regardless.
'We' are like a patient with cancer. We have a choice of unpleasant treatments or we can choose no treatment, we are not going to be offered a 'cure'. We might get lucky, or we might not. We can make choices which may or may not bias things slightly one way or the other.
So far, I haven't felt it necessary to consider Vladimir Putin's preference when considering my final decision.
I do however, notice that he seems to have reserved a seat from Portarlington to Dublin Heuston - something may be going on.
It's not even like you can apply the Peter Principle to him
Or any of them
Promoted above their station?
They couldn't even buy a platform ticket
What do you expect when the media owners are some of those dodging paying tax, you don't expect unbiased reporting do you?
It's a subjective term
Care to clear up your definition?
I was going to implore you to use your vote as the right to vote has been hard fought BUT then I tried to think of a party you could vote for and then realised your point.
Obviously voting for Labour or the Tories only keeps the duopoly going that keeps them in expenses and subsidised Westminster bars and canteens.
If the polls are to believed then UKIP is the biggest threat to Labour and the Tories and I imagine anyone who agrees with Anti EU and Anti mass immigration policies they will vote for them. But UKIP has been a missed opportunity because they haven't widened their appeal and tapped in to wide spread disillusionment of politics and politicians.
There is a wide open goal for any party to score into by pledging to reform how this country is governed, make politicians and all people in authority more accountable and fairer representation. It would also good to see the opportunities be spread across the whole country and be less London centric and less of the usual suspects ending up in the top jobs.
There seemed to be a sea change in attitude directly after the Scottish Independence vote with the realisation that there was deep dissatisfaction how the UK is governed and my hope was that a New Settlement could be agreed to renew the democratic system in this country but sadly this was only a fleeting moment and now it's back to business as usual.
My feelings exactly mate
I intend to vote, I just know my vote won't count. As long as at least one candidate stands that has policies that aren't complately against my beliefs and I don't consider an utter twat I will vote for them. If an independant stands then they will most likely get my vote, just because party politics removes the usefulness of an MP. I know my vote will either be for someone that doesn't stand a chance or I will be drawing a cock should no suitable pity vote opportunity arise, I am positive that none of the main parties will get it.
As for UKIP, as mentioned elsewhere the immigrant bashing is boring. Immigrants cost us less than starbucks do.
There is still time to stand as a Spunking Cock
All you need is a Monkey
I have skeletons in my closet that would make a Tory claim £40 expenses for a breakfast he'd eaten in his constituency. I wouldn't fare well in premier league politics, I think my uses are better put being anti some parties than pro one. I'd rather give everyone ammunition against each other so that we can prove they are all *****.

Nothing to see here
Don't read this
Read about Jeremy Clarkson instead
Sign a bloody petition
Without a pen
That sort of thing
Problem is with Labour, they have moved too far away from traditional Labour values. There are very few true labour politicians left these days. They need too look at moving back to their roots and get a proper leader. None of the current batch of labour politicians have what it takes too be a true labour leader.
My friend was in labour for 53 hours
Beats being in 'the club' when push comes to shove
Ah yes, a true Liebour leader would make everything better.
