... evidently not, because I've seen the topic arise elsewhere on my friendslist already.

But today marks ten years since our last change of national government, and we're two days away from local government elections in many places outside London and from elections to the Scottish Parliament and the Welsh Assembly.

I could say all sorts of things, and I've already said a couple of them in comments elsewhere, but if anyone wants to say stuff without putting it in their own journal then here's a handy placeholder for you to do so.

I have an icon that's pro- one party, and another icon that's anti- another, but here instead is an icon that's politically neutral (aside from the fact that the ballot box is orange and the cross is red).

I intend to vote, though I've had so little information about the local candidates that it's very hard to decide who to vote for. The Conservative flyer had no information about the candidates at all. Their party line on local issues is exactly the same as the Lib Dems (save the library, preserve the green belt, etc) and thus, I am likely to vote for one from each party if I can actually find out anything about them!
