You'll make up your own mind on how to vote too - you'll get no direction, no advice, here.
So, spoil your ballot paper if you fancy - just don't delude yourself that anyone will notice. It's a bit of paper with a cock drawn on it, and it's in the bin now.
Vote along party lines if you like - yeah, vote for the colour that you think comes closest to representing your political philosophy.
Vote on traditional lines if you want to - you can vote for the party your dad voted for, your families vote for, your mates wherever-you-choose-to-drink vote for.
Or vote for a person. Someone you believe will make the effort, be a good local MP, represent your interests.
Personally, CF is voting for someone he considers to be a good guy, someone who will 'give back', someone who isn't a 'career politician', someone who - although he has slim chance this time around - will one day, perhaps next time - make it. And be a bloody good representative of his constituents. Which is, after all, what an MP is supposed to be about.
So, CF will put a cross against an individual's name. Even though his party's policies are a heap of festering, ill-thought-out shite. But then, which party's aren't?
Vote however your conscience, heart, head or drunken whim dictates.
Just don't, whatever the fuck you choose to do, vote Labour; of all the many mainstream party candidates, minor party candidates and independents on offer, Labour do not deserve your vote.
Off you go...
