    if your going to vote dont piss it up the wall, tick all the boxs;) ,see an end to this 25% majority rule bullshit

    politics in a nutshell , some guy i pay more then i get , tells me i need to pay more each week to ensure the world dosnt fall appart , all whilst the worlds falling appart, but dont drink smoke or eat your way to happiness because that might end up costing NHS dollers , just run and stuff

    and they all have a plan, one they cant tell you yet and is the same as the other teams

    we should have a soddin spokes person not a prime and a council of elders or sumat, plus web, and library based voteing on everything that matters with the council dealing with the menial

    Lol, I dont vote nationally but do for the locals but I had to laugh, are we not in a recession again? Don't we have the highest levels of unemployment since the last Conservative government? Don't we have the lowest growth for 15 years? ohhh and funny enuff, we actually have a HIGHER defecit now than we did when they won (because of the lack of growth.... less income coming in negates the savings).

    I voted Lib/Dem on my locals because they are good around my area, but lets not kid ourselves, whoever was in power would struggle to straighten this lot out, at least that Labour party could in part blame the US Prime market for some of the woes in 2008, we can't even do that currently.

    :laugh:

    In the council elections i decided not to vote by party but by candidate, based on what the fuck they actually plan to do for my local community. I heard that councillors are more important than MSPs/MPs as they actually have the power to spend allocated budgets. They can effect local issues more because they actually decide how it gets spent.

    I numbered a local independent (was on council before and is really clued up about the area and its problems), a Labour runner and 2 other people, beyond that i didnt fancy anyone plus i dont think it would matter i mean who in this area is going to number a Tory or a Lib Dem! SNP and Labour are stale, seems like those guys are just there to fill up the City Chambers and try get a majority. The big parties are impersonal and expect us to vote on our party preferences. Saying that though id rather have a Labour led council than SNP.

    I lol'd @ the typical SNP Asian guy, Asians vote Asians, fact. I expected people to tell me their policies but i expect the runners where at other polling stations.

    Ah that's right London Mayoral Elections are at the same time as the local elections.
    Fourstaff, how come you can't vote?

    @ Tatty - Seems to me that every party in power likes to blame the last government and bring no solutions of their own. The SNP and Tories are really hammering the its not our fault the last government fucked up. Like i said its not like those parties have offered a much better solution, so seems to me they got in power as a bit of a voter backlash. Im kinda worried that UKIP, BNP and some of those minor parties will make grounds.

    I know this, but in our area the Labour party are absolute scum.... They really ruined the regeneration of our area... that's the only reason....


    Lib dems have some nice ideas but i don't think people think that they can pull it off

    Yeah... I gave up on my search. Since this is my first time water cooling, an EK x2 250 advanced (tube res) will have to do.

    Me personally netbook + smartphone kinda negates any need for a tablet, i see a tablet as an extravagant waste. An SSD on the other hand might be a nice boost for the netbook.
