Sorry FE, I know it's bit sensitive, but we're talking really important stuff here.

While you lot down south only have the economy, welfare, education and such to worry about, here in Scotland our local TV news service is dependent on the whim of the English electorate.

If Labour get in we get a new franchise, and if the Tories make it then we don't!

Elections have been won and lost on lesser issues!

The only issue I have is that even after returning to cast my vote in the local elections last year, I still don't see what could be any different whoever I might have voted for.

I haven't voted in a general election since the '97 'new beginning'... I'm still waiting for that, and I don't currently see myself voting again this year.

I'm not hearing anything new... are you listening politicians? Negative campaigns fall negative on me, I'm sure I'm not the only one.

That's a shame. Anyone who doesn't vote is allowing the party they least wish to win to get in. It's what democracy is all about. Women died to get the right to vote in this country. In third world countries a lot of people die wanting to vote.

I had to get my family out of Kenya and into Tanzania two years ago because of the rigged voting system caused an almost civil war.

I know this lot aren't anything to shout about, but at least we've got three parties to moan about. Some places only have one.

They've known for decades that they're losing the interest of the electorate. A direct result of negative campaigning over the years. I don't want any 'ya boo they suck' negativity aimed at me.

It's also my democratic right to not to bother, for whatever reason.
