    Ahh the flying cock. Its been the toilet wall doodle of choice for a good few years for me. Ive even thrown it in on the odd birthday card for mates n stuff like that. Im currently sporting a rather cartoonish flying cock as my emblem on battlefield 4 complete with dog tags. Cant beat it excuse the pun

    I imagine one vote doesn't make much difference. Even less if not used!

    I think I'll be voting for Jeremy Lefroy to be honest. I don't really know a thing about Kate Godfrey, and the flyer the Labour team put through my door earlier doesn't say much either. It's titled 'a better plan for Holmcroft' and then goes on to say absolutely nothing of substance; I've combed it twice now, and I still can't see what this plan is. Aside from promising to introduce the 'Living Wage' for Council employees, and freezing council tax for a year, the flyer appears to be all waffle. At least Jeremy Lefroy seems to be going out of his way to tell people what he has done and what he plans to do if reelected.

    Nationally, I'm more for Labour this time around, but I won't vote solely on the national picture. Doing so is how we wind up with crap MPs.

    I can only judge Lefroy on his record, and its a poor record. He voted against equal marriage due to overwhelming opinion of his constituents. The town is a ghost town, not to mention the university and the hospital. I havent seen his literature, or him for that matter.

    He's not all bad, but a few of his stronger opinions don't really make me want to vote for him. A selection of which are:

    Voted very strongly against equal gay rights
    Voted very strongly against increasing the tax rate applied to income over £150,000
    Voted strongly against an annual tax on the value of expensive homes (popularly known as a mansion tax)
    Voted very strongly for raising England’s undergraduate tuition fee cap to £9,000 per year
    Voted very strongly for ending financial support for some 16-19 year olds in training and further education
    Voted very strongly for academy schools
    Voted very strongly against a more proportional system for electing MPs
    Voted strongly for requiring the mass retention of information about communications
    Voted very strongly against slowing the rise in rail fares
    Voted very strongly for selling England’s state owned forests
    Voted very strongly for the privatisation of Royal Mail
    Voted very strongly against requiring pub companies to offer pub landlords rent-only leases
    Voted strongly for restricting the scope of legal aid
    Voted strongly forculling badgers to tackle bovine tuberculosis
    Voted very strongly against restrictions on fees charged to tenants by letting agents

    But he is a Tory so it was kind of expected.

    The problem still remains the same

    You really should not be allowed to vote unless you have a real grasp of what the individual parties have done , what the individuals in the parties have done , what the people connected financially have gained from the individuals in the parties and the parties in general, and what the parties have not done, by design, for people in less influential positions, like ourselves

    This all takes effort

    But it takes effort to watch Emmerdale, it takes effort to drive to McDonalds it takes effort to play computer games, it takes effort to take the dog for a walk

    The people are rarely right

    Because the people are ignorant

    Of fact

    Is there a website that shows when an MP breaks rank? Cos lets face it, if they won't go against the party then a local MP is not effective.

    How do you vote 'very strongly' for or against something?

    So the mini poll here shows that UKIP have split the Daily Mail vote down the middle

    Bring it on
