    Not less serious. sorry

    Whoever I vote for will make no difference in this constituency. The answer is proportional representation. However, this is what we've got.
    I believe it is important to vote. The only party left for me to consider is the Green Party. I could not, in conscience, vote for any of the main parties.
    Is spoiling the ballot paper with a comment worth considering ? Does it respect the hard earned right to vote ?

    Spoilt ballot paper will have your contribution counted in with (no offence to anyone..) various loonies and various unpleasant views. Understand how you feel, certainly re. Bozo .

    Vote Green:
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      Thanks for prompt and constructive response. I have been impressed by detailed education , my field, policy. I will vote Green. Think your caveat about spoiled vote right.
      Watched dreadful interview given by NO on Andrew Marr. Can't understand how people can vote for a Party which chose him as leader.
      He has not negotiated a deal with EU. It is merely a withdrawal agreement worse than T Ms.

        Regulars here will know the HHGTTG quote I've posted before, we seem to be getting closer to it every time..

        I'm not sure just which lizard I will be voting for this time, but do know the ones who I definitely won't be voting for.

        (PS. Talking of loonies, maybe David Icke had a point after all?)

          Someone once suggested that every ballot paper had a "none of the above" option, which, if it won, would mean no MP until the next election.
          When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
          Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

            Seems like a good idea. It would also cut costs with fewer to pay. Some MPs don't think anyway.

              I asked at the polling booth one time how to vote for 'none of the above'. The lady said, quite intelligently I thought, 'Just put the polling slip in the box unmarked. Then your 'none of the above' vote will be recorded.'

                "He has not negotiated a deal with EU. It is merely a withdrawal agreement worse than T Ms." I don't disagree that it is not good but for those of us who want Brexit it is our only choice. All the other parties are remain. Labour (we think) wants another referendum with the choices being remain and er...remain. I hope the Brexit party will win a few seats in former Labour areas just to keep the pressure on the Conservaties. So like it or not we have to go with the agreement and hope for a strong negotiation over the next year or so. I don't however think the new WA is quite as bad as Mrs May's....

                  Dad always says that, and that if 'None of the above' wins then all current candidates are sacked and replaced.

                            Whats MRLP ? I make my mind up every election, not always same party. Perhaps I am a jinx

                              Apologies, understand:

                              I'd meant by

                              what I think/thought most people understand by that rather common saying.... ...

                              We (collectively) get the Politicians we (collectively) vote for under whatever voting system there is in operation at that particular election.

                              OP recommended proportional representation: I tend to agree. Of course we already have PR in some elections (eg MEP, MSP...). Of course, a bit like Br*x*t there may/will be furious arguments about which sort of PR is desired...

                              Apologies for any offence caused, and best wishes to all.
