Re: London Mayor election 2012

Some remotely decent options would be good. The major section of the ruling coalition is a joke, the minor section beyond comedy, the opposition farcical.

The sooner people stop voting for a colour and start voting for the best policies, whether red, blue, yellow or someone else, the better.

Of course this does require the population to inform themselves a bit, although this can be done without even having to leave their sofa nor get off their generally rather large arse.

They will need to do something special to prevent me from writing my special message to them on my voting slip.

Re: London Mayor election 2012

I really can't see politicians acting like turkeys voting for Christmas. They'll simply ignore the public's apathy and carry on regardless having, of course, first promised to have learned from it all blah, blah, blah...

The main parties need a really big shock to make them wake up. Maybe the Lib Dems have just had that shock, who knows. However, while there are enough people who'll blindly vote one way or the other come hell or high water, there's no incentive for our leaders to change anything. So many of them appear to be shameless that expecting them to be embarrassed into change by ever shrinking electoral turnouts is expecting rather too much I feel.

As i will not be voting ever again it will not therefor be right for me to complain about the expenses stealing lying scumbags that are in power at the time.
What will you do with all your new found spare time then?
