Latest betting on the outcome of the next election;

No overall maj @ 4/7

Lab @ 11/4

Con @ 4/1

Interesting
I am unlikely to vote. I consider no party to be worth it.
At least you are honest Kromo, rather than waste your vote by committing it some loony-tune no-hoper. But by not voting, you are abdicating your right to criticise in the future, if things don't turn out as you wish.
Out of a population of 64 million, 35 people have voted Con. Hardly conclusive is it?
"But by not voting, you are abdicating your right to criticise in the future, if things don't turn out as you wish."

Hogwash. I can complain all I want and still not vote - especially given that one of my chief complaints is that there is no worthwhile candidate anywhere on the political landscape.

If I don't like how things turn out after the election, it will very likely be tied to the same reasons I will probably choose not to participate in it.
Interesting to see that Plaid have no votes! They'll have plenty in my area come the general election. More's the pity!
In every election Kromo, there is a wide range of different candidates to vote for, all with different policies and outlooks, so I find it inconceivable that none of them are suitable for you to vote for.

Perhaps there should be a "Kromovaracun Party" on the ballot papers, who can count on one vote at least.
mikey: //...who can count on one vote at least.// not necessarily - I would never vote for myself to run the country, - and you should be well pleased to hear that! :0)
lol Khandro...me neither !
"In every election Kromo, there is a wide range of different candidates to vote for, all with different policies and outlooks, so I find it inconceivable that none of them are suitable for you to vote for."

Except, as you yourself put it, most of them are loony-tune no hopers who it is pointless to vote for.

Policies and political outlook are not the only things that determine my voting choices. I also take into account the reliability of the candidates as people, and whether I think they are in a position to effectively do whatever it is I am giving them a vote for.

So no, I don't expect a party to align with my own personal views entirely. Even with that provision, I have come to the judgement that there is nobody worth voting for.

That does not mean I forfeit my right to "complain" or offer political opinions in future.
You seem to want to eat your cake and have it too Kromo. When you start moaning after May next year, I shall remember that you couldn't be bothered to make the effort to make your mind up and vote !
Where is the 'Britain First' option?

I've heard there is lots of support for them on AB.
No, Mikey, I just don't share your view of politics. I see voting as a right - not an obligation. I know several intelligent people who choose not to vote because they don't feel well-informed enough to make a good decision. I have a lot more respect for that stance than I do for people who simply turn out to vote for their pet party without thinking.

In my own case, I will most likely not vote because I am not content with our party system or the candidates it is effectively offering me. In all likelihood, I will continue to be discontented with it after the election and will continue to express my discontent afterwards.

This is not complicated stuff, Mikey, and I encourage you to stop thinking in trite political cliches.
I agree Kromo. People fought for the right to vote, not to make it compulsory. It reminds me of the old tale of the shop stewards holding a mass meeting during a dispute. As the chief shoppie was haranguing them the board were seen leaving the yard in their limousines. The chief shoppie said, "Look at that, there they go smoking their cigars whilst you have to be content with Woodbines. Come the revolution, everyone will be smoking cigars". A voice at the back said,"I don't like cigars, I much prefer Woodbines", to which the shoppie replied, "come the revolution, brother, you'll smoke what we bloody well tell you to smoke!"
