    Please get out and vote on Thursday

    On Thursday we have the first referendum for the whole of the UK since the 1970's.
    It would've been nice for it to have been a more sensible referendum on voting reform or the very long overdue referendum on EU membership, but it's still very important to show MP's that we care about what goes on in politics and that we do want referendums. A low turnout will just give them an excuse not to bother in the future, a high turnout will make them sit up and think and give amunition to the call for more constructive referendums.
    So please, don't ignore it, get out there and vote

    PS
    We've had a great YES/NO to AV debate thread on here, thanks all those who took part and it was nice to see that neg rep didn't start getting used

    Both options are fine but I am voting yes to shake things up a bit.

    Ohhhh I forgot about the rep feature, I'm off to do some marking

    I've said to friends, I don't care how they vote as long as they do it informed & that they do it. If they don't they get a slap on all future occasions they whine about something related.

    & if you're an annoying, stubborn get like me, play the game of avoiding the party counters outside the polling station. Annoys the hell out of them as they have the idea they are official and brings a smile to my face.

    smeg, compleatly forgot about it, suppose i'll have to vote tonight.

    I quite enjoy talking to the 'reps' and giving them compleatly useless information (Yes i did vote for <Party> as I feel <make up some BS>), but then tbh i never follow the political broadcasts and have no idea what each party represents. there all pretty much the same to me.
