As HYB and numerous stupid fucking Channel 4 ads have presumably already informed you, you have until Tuesday to register to vote. Labour need to be removed from office at all costs. Vast proportion of you lot are probably too cynical/apathetic to want to bother to go through any saga so you can take part in an election you don't give two shits about, but please think for a moment. Why are you cynical? Why do you not care? Is it because Labour have given you 13 long, hard years of lies, broken promises and bullshit draconian legislation, and have turned Britain into a place you no longer care about very much by making patriotism a euphemism for racism, or is it because politics is bullshit? I'm going to side with the former. I implore you to register to vote, and to get involved on the day - even if you're going to vote for a party with no hope of winning, or spoil your ballot paper, send those in power a message that you're sick of them. Our current government got elected by just over 9 million people in a country with a population of over 60 million. If lots of people turn out to vote this time round but neglect to support either main party, then it'll send a strong message that they can't get away with appealing to the sectional views of the tiny Daily Mail reading Little Englander demographic. Some opinion polls have the Liberal Democrats in the lead - and one of their key policies is the repeal of Labour's terrorism policies and the destruction of the surveillance/database culture that we spend so much time whining about. Let's make Britain better together. Change can happen if you really really want it.
