It looks like a fair few of you are not voting because you're disillusioned with the Big Three. I just wanted to ask of those of you: if you CAN vote and you are NOT starting your own party, please vote Green if you have the option. It won't count for Bliar, and it could just make a difference for everybody else.written 8th Apr 2005
Jeffrey replies: but whats the point if Greens get 10% of the vote if one of the big three gets to be MP anyway? Under First Past the Post system, I may as well not wasted the hour it would take me to register a vote that would be useless to all but the most ardent statiticians.written 8th Apr 2005
Gavin replies: There would also be the risk that the Greens would actually get in. Their cause may be a noble one, but there's a bit more to real life than tree hugging. One-issue parties (well, a group of issues, but still based around the same thing) cannot be a good idea.written 11th Apr 2005
