GE2010 And My Worthless Vote
Not a good day.
I just discovered that my vote is so diluted it is worthless. There is absolutely no point in me, or the other two voters in my family trudging down to the polling booth on May 6th. Between the three of us we barely have one tenth of one single vote.
One tenth of one vote for three voters!
If you want to discover the power of your vote (Don't do it. Honestly, don't. It is too, too depressing), you can see the nasty result right here.
My vote "power" is 0.034. There is nothing to be gained in casting my vote. Unless I want to vote for Wee Eck and the SNP. I don't. Salmond and his party are no less authoritarian than ZaNuLabour. Plus, it was one them that introduced the Private Members Bill that led to the heinous smoking ban. For that alone, I would never vote for them as long as I lived. I would no more vote for them than I would vote for the Labour monkey, or the LibDem fence-sitter. Voting Tory in Scotland is tantamount to admitting that you are mentally sub-normal. And a traitor. And a bastard. And that you eat children.
We do have a UKIP candidate standing but it will take THIRTY of us to equal ONE SNP vote. What a load of mince.
Unless someone (one of you, perhaps) can convince me otherwise, I might as well have a lie-in on May 6th.
In fact, I might just stay in bed, under the covers, crying, the whole day.
It will be just as productive as voting.
