Re: UK - Council and European Election
I don't vote domestically at all anymore as just as I lay no claims on the state, I also expect them to have no claims on me. I can register as an overseas voter, but I see no point in making such an effort. I also understand the views of those who say their vote makes no difference. UKIP is suggesting that at least there is another party on the horizon, but in truth, asides from immigration, I don't really have very much in common with UKIP. In a way UKIP's rise might be the shake up that's needed as all three of the other parties should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves, particularly in the way they have allowed unchecked immigration, student debt to rise exponentially, an allegiance to the most corrupt banking in the world, another housing bubble, a police state (with no explanation), fracking and continued privatisation (including now the NHS). It's hardly even voting for the lesser of evils looking at such policies. It's a mess and maybe the ballot box isn't the way to go anymore. I think the recent slander of Farage by the main parties and the media has been atrocious too and it has actually made me think more favourably of him too. He is up against pure scum who would much rather throw mud pies than sort themselves out in the interests of their people. It has never been more clear just how warped the British establishment is.
Eton schoolboy pieces of trash all cloned in the same schoolyard factory. People probably want someone genuine who won't be bought by the banks or US dictators.
