Latest sleazy scam to pop out of the orifice Tonlt Blkair usually talks though is a suggestion that voting should be compulsory. The reasoning behind this is that people conditioned to think of only two viable parties of government will naturally go for the lesser of two bags of shite which, Labour assume, will in most peoples’ minds be be Labour.
The arrogance of this is gobsmacking. It assumes we do not vote because we are too apathetic. More often than not, non voting is an active choice. I vote Green whenever I have a green candidate to vote for (usually only European elections) but I will vote for any other fringe candidate except the BNP. In the past I have voted Monster Raving Loony Independant Accrington Party and Natural Law Party. Not voting is a carefully considered choice.
We have it in our power to nip this sleazy self – interested scam in the bud. If you are voting on Thursday, vote anyone but Labour. I cannot even argue against a BNP vote as I am certain that a surge in support for an extremeist party would focus minds in the major parties as efficiently as a gun held to the head. Vote for the nutter, the guy who paints himself orange and sits in a bath of beans (for charity he claims, but really because he gets a buzz out of it) vote for the local single issue group, vote for the guy who looks like Gandalf. You who are voting have an opportunity to give the liar, war – criminal and career hypocrite Tony Blair a good shove towards the exit door.
Do It, PLEASE!
