Harriet Harman would be ideal as the wicked witch in The Wizard Of Oz, with Mandelson as the leader of the Munchkins. Jack Straw as, who else, but the Straw Man, and Brown as the Tin Man, going rusty very rapidly. As for Toto, how about Ed Balls, frantically yapping away about nothing of any consequence? And the Cowardly Lion? Well, almost any of the cabinet members could play the part with ease.
You can see which party I won't be voting for.

Instead of all that prattle at the debates, they should have had to do a Shakespearean soliloquy/speech and we could have voted for the best.

Hamlet's soliloquy - To be, or not to be: that is the question!!!!!!!!

Off-topically, I have done my democratic duty. I was torn over whether to vote with my heart or vote with my head. In the end I decided to vote with a pencil on a piece of string. I think, on the whole, that was probably the best choice.
I have always hated eggs. I remember back when I was a sperm I tried to head-butt one. It did not end well.

I also voted with a pencil, after quite a lot of reading round and deciding what I think would be best for me. Selfish way of doing it perhaps, but with the mess the country is in and so much needing to be done there was too much to go any other way except which party is going to help the country therefore me the best.

We'll see how we get on tonight I guess!

Pity the child with no such weapons
No defence, no escape from the ties that bind

I've voted for the same party for almost forty years and my candidate has never got in so I'll be off again tonight to do it all over again knowing that I'll get the same result blink.gif
I really think everybody should vote even if you don't want any of them then just put none of the above (done that once for locals) but just get out there and make your feelings known. If you don't vote then you have no right to moan about the Government afterwards.

Not at all, that is the entire basis of the democratic system.

Yes, but only if you consider that what is best for society is best for you. It is far from true that everyone exercises his or her vote in accordance with narrow self-interest.

I did my democratic duty. Unfortunately there wasn't a candidate for the All Singing, All dancing Musical Theatre Party, so I had to vote for one of the usual suspects!!
