    The bloody humans rights act is a joke.
    The 'bloody human rights act' as you put it is rather a complicated document - just what part of it do you feel is a joke ?

    I know who I will be voting for, and it won't be either of the 'big 2'. If more people realised that they don't need to vote for the big 2 (it isn't a wasted vote) then we would have a much more flexible system over here.
    I voted lib dem at the last elections in scotland, didn't help as the ministry of muppetry (AKA SNP) got in anyway. I'll probably never vote conservative or labour again and know I'll never vote for the SNP.

    I'm a constant floating voter

    Oh and heres the new news article where Brown is made to look a wee bit stupid
    Oh wow, almost 10,000 people have signed it - compared to the figures that almost 30 million people in this country can actually vote.

    The human rights act is a good law - ok it has a few problems, which many laws do, but overall it does a good job.

    And regarding being a constant floating voter - good!! That's what everyone should be. The system isn't designed for people to simply turn 18, choose a party and vote that way until they die. You are supposed to look at party policies, their stances on various things that affect you and choose based on that.

    I can't stand people who say things like 'well I'm not too keen on their new policy X, but I'll still vote for them'. That sort of behaviour is ridiculous.

    We know you vote for a party, but any team has to have a strong leader and someone you respect or think will do a good job. It is a problem indeed. I don't really like any of them as all MP lie and cheat, and take more money out of our pockets. They all claim to be like us the hard working class or whatever.

    I didn't vote for Gordon in the first place so i don't see why he should take over without winning a Election.
    John Major anyone?

    EDIT Oh bugger. should have read ALL the replies first.

    The problem is localzuk, not many people read the parties manifestos when they come out, or they just watch the news and get the 'WE NEED SOME VIEWERS HEADLINES' - or even worse read the toilet tabloids like the Daily Mail.
    Talking of which a recent study was done on the Daily Mail - apparently if you wipe your bum with the Daily Mail, more sh1t comes off the paper.....

    John Major was probably better remembered for his splitting image character then from being PM.

    Ha Ha

    I thought he would be remembered for 'popping out for a Curry, sorry Currie'

    the days of going to school and being given our minature GLASS milk bottles to drink from that had been outside, weren't cleaned and when you burst the foil top (best part) you found it was frozen solid in the winter

    Great memories

    Exactly. Most people are quite happy to complain about things that the government do wrong, but when it comes to the election, they simply rely on what the Sun or News of the World told them to do... Makes a right mess of the democratic system if people can't be bothered to take an interest in their own well-being.
