As the local elections are upcoming now is perhaps good time for a straw poll. Lets see how in tune politically HPC is with the rest of the country.

I chose 'other' as opposed to 'none of the above' which wasn't an available option.

UKIP if I had to however i'm holding out for a revolution to give us real choice.

Who would support any political party except a vested interest or an unthinking loyalist?

Don't worry, if this poll doesn't show what I want to see I'll just change it anyway (bonus of being a mod)! ...just following our leaders.

The 25 Most Dangerous People In Financial Media

There are some things that men must do in order that they remain as men.

It's not what you know, it's what you can prove in court. Didn't you tell me that once?

It is the duty of all good men to nurture the seed of self-destruction that lies at the core of every evil.

The biggest delusion that humans suffer is to abrogate their powers to others then expect something other than despair.

I don't support any. Another vote for none of the above.

UKIP for me, I actually joined the party last year :unsure: I do have some concerns about them, but I'm willing to overlook those because I utterly detest what the EU has become.

Pretty much what I have been doing recently. (Prior to the Brown/Harman/Balls nexus I just didn't vote.)


Pointless, as you are just juggling one corporate patsy for another.

As for UKIP, I'm sure they have a price.

I don't think I've ever seen anything as financially insane as Labour's scorched earth "spend it all" policy before the last election. Other than voting BNP or for Satan trying to reclaim his throne, I feel morally obliged to at least vote against them.

Yes, this was quite shocking, it did however produce the positive GDP needed going into the election.

For me it epitomised the tribal nature and sheer nastiness of the Labour Party - were they always this bad or has it become more cult like in recent years?

I have to laugh at the local election leaflets, lie upon lie, exaggeration and the usual tribalism. Unfortunately, propaganda works and not enough of the people have woken up.

Any 'decent' politician will be swallowed up by the machine.

I would support both their policies! ;)
