Forgot to vote, go me.
Too far to go now and i have coffee ...
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.
I can't vote, but if I can my vote will go to Boris, I hate Ken with a passion.
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
I am an illegal alien in this country
Temp residents are not allowed to vote iirc.
thank god im not your pimp otherwise border control/immigration would charge me £10'000 if i was caught whoring your ass on the street.
London is the mosty amazing city in the world...so I have just determined firsthand.
Hey you finally got some! Ohhhhh...sorry that's the warm IPA talking.

So, two of my colleagues are getting fiber at the of June and I'm not. FU BT FU!
Does anyone know where I can get a dual 5.25" bay acetal reservoir that isn't an EK-bay Spin reservoir?
Got mine done by Sky a few months back
That's acrylic. It doesn't matter any more, I just realized that Danger Den ships worldwide.
watch for tax dude
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.
Hmmmm.... THIS ANDROID TABLET or a 128GB SSD for my HP DM1 'netbook'??
I don't see the point of tablets, so SSD gets my vote.
yeah I was just thinkin that myself.... Id definitely use my netbook a lot more if it was 'faster'. The E-350 APU is weak when it comes to loading windows up.
get a tablet pc
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.
thats how i feel, i just assumed you were a tablet dude....
Phone is really good that ways
used to be busy around here - and funny!
I know right!
