I voted Labour. It was the only sensible option at the time, but still a risk. Sadly the risk did not pay off. I am a cynic and believed they would fall short of our expectations, but I have been surprised at how completely they have failed to realise their rhetoric.
Growing up in South Wales I was incapable, on principle, of voting Conservative (I am sorry Lady Thatcher, but the end does not justify the means). Faced with little option I clung onto the faint hope that the opposition could not be as bad. That hope was already in very poor health when the Iraq fiasco finally killed it. Now I will vote only on one issue, and that is the prospect of electoral reform.
