I would have to vote at my old school which I left early due to intense bullying.written 4th May 2005
If I did vote, then without a system of proportional representation there is no chance of my vote counting.
I don't accept the idea that the person who wins in any particular location should be expected to vote with their party line, but few politians seem to agree with me.
There is still no particualar policy amongst the 3 main parties that excites me into wanting to vote for them, I would only be voting against, and can't decide who I hate more.
I also don't like the idea that whoever I vote for (if they win) swears loyalty to the Queen, who should have no place in the political system, and should I partake of this system I hand it a touch more validity.

Yes, first past the post is an unfair and outdated system that needs to be replaced, so how do we do this when those who want to replace it dont vote?
