A number of people in the Question Time thread mentioned how the 1st past the post system means a lot of people often vote to keep someone out rather than get in who they really want. Well there is a kind of way round this, thanks to the wonders of cyberspace.

 

This little description explains what happens:

 

"Like other vote swappers, A lives in a marginal constituency with little chance of her preferred candidate winning. Rather than "waste" her vote on a candidate almost assured to come third, she has decided to swap with someone in a similar boat. What both have in common is a desire to keep the Conservatives from winning in the seats where they live. In effect, A gets to vote Labour in Selby while her partner gets her preferred choice in Guildford, and both get to cast an anti-Tory vote where they live. Two votes for the price of one. The pair struck their deal on Tacticalvoter.net, a kind of virtual clearing house that pairs Liberal Democrat and Labour supporters who live in different constituencies. In simple terms, Tactical Voter - the political equivalent of internet dating - matches up anti-Tory voters in marginal constituencies where the centre-left has a decent chance of unseating the Conservatives - in other words, in the 230 seats where the Conservatives are vulnerable to a clear challenger."

Keep them out

 

Ok, just to be fair, there are also at least 2 sites designed to give Mr Blair a bloody nose. Won't go as far as posting the links, but they were mentioned yesterday in the Online section of the paper I got my info from.

As long as it is never going to be fluoride that is added to the water supply. During the last Parliament the law was changed to allow water authorities to add fluoride at the request of the local Health Authority. This was despite furious opposition due to increasing evidence of serious health risks from fluoride. How this substance ever gained it's prominence in dentistry is a long and strange story. It is actually a spin off from the atomic weapons industry and is more poisonous than arsenic! However try and raise this with the Parliamentary candidates and they will almost certainly fall into line with the authorities in denying any harm can come from this poison. And yes, it is officially a poison as it is included in the Schedule to the Poisons Act. So which Party would we all expect to advocate mass medication against the wishes of individuals? Surely an extreme example of the nanny state, but on the verge of coming to your home whether Labour or the Tories win. kmj.

In a fair and democratic society you should post all the links so that the people can choose! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/angry.gif" alt="" />

Come on! The guy is a Labour supporter & he has given you some clues.

Would he read a Tory paper? No
Does this sound a popular or serious paper? Serious
That leaves, The Times, Independent & Guardian.

5 minutes later, bingo, an article in the Groiniad Online:

Article from the Groiniad

If you can't be bothered to read the whole article, here are the links. Both quite interesting, even to a Labour supporter.

No. 1

No. 2

The Guardian's stance has been quite interesting. Anti Tory, left wing enough to believe the Monarchy doesn't belong in a democratic society, but believes Blair's huge majority is unhealthy. Probably why it was the first to break the story of the Attorney General's report & publish it in full.

I still want Chris Pond back in Gravesham, though. Really don't trust the other guy - that dog in the Union Jack coat did it for me with him.
