"EXCERCISE YOUR FRANCHISE"

I am. I go to the station and collect my ballot - I never stay at home and not bother.

Sorry, but there is no way I am going to vote on anything but principle. Tactical voting does have its place, but if no candidate or party represents my view and opinions, why should they get my vote?

The 'none of the above' suggestion is a good idea, although the end result will be the same, i.e. a discounted vote.

Ard Macha is correct though - the drunken boorish louts that have ruined the towns and cities of the UK need some sort of action. Luckily Tony B.Liar has the answer - longer opening hours! Hooray for anti-social behaviour!
