They're not voting because...
- Party Politics kills democracy... whips...
Party Politics kills democracy... whips are bad, bad, bad. I'd like to vote for a candidate who is prepared to stand up for what he or she believes in. Unfortunately, unless the party line is toed, they'll be out of a job. So what do I get - THE COWARDLY MEDIOCRE and not a fag-paper twixt them.
So, I like small goverment - should I vote Tory?
Disestablishment is necessary - Lib Dem then?
What about social justice? Labour? Maybe not.
Not good enough - I want a candidate that represents me - I'll vote for a fiscally conservative, socially liberal, atheist candidate - and I'd like my MP to then go through whichever division lobby that keeps their conscience clean.
Is that too much to ask for?written 22nd Apr 2005
