A Little Reminder
Since the election is only four days away, and although I have firm views on it, I have not said anything much about it recently, I am republishing a post on why I have not voted for (I sent my postal ballot last week) the sitting MP for Battersea, Martin Linton. I was told by someone last night that people I know who live in Battersea are getting a heavy dose of the 'a vote for anyone apart from the Labour party is a vote for Howard' argument, which is frankly crap. In the particular case, I remember being told that Linton might lose the seat last time around, when he won it quite comfortably. In the general case, this, rather lengthy, post here explains exactly why the chances of the Tory party winning the coming election are vanishingly small.
