It's so hard to decide where to vote when you have no faith in either candidate. I refuse to not vote......but where to put my cross on the big day!

Though in all honesty I don't think I could vote conservative at the end of the day.

Good.

Besides, I still have yet to think of a "most annoying person" of 2009.

I'll probably go for the lesser of 4 evils and pick Lib Dem. Not that it matters in my constituency. A Ferengi in a red rosette could win here.

Of course it's always going to be difficult for a child of the Thatcher years to vote Tory

Surrender Monkey? Please. Admitting past mistakes is not a bad thing. Other than that, I have no idea why anyone would think Obama is less qualified to deal with national security than any other President before him. Please don't mention the fact he observes cultural practices such as bowing to some people. The fact people actually give a damn about that is pretty damn lame

It's pretty red where I live as well, so it won't make a huge difference likely either. I did that last time round and might again.

I still kinda feel it's a vote that disappears into the ether but my history teacher always said to us that if you don't vote you cannot criticise the government of the day! Which I suppose isn't entirely applicable in reality but.....

That's always kind of stuck with me.

Course he also said there was no middle class and they were just basically up themselves. His thoughts were if you had to 'work' to earn the money to pay your way then you were working class whether you liked it or not!

I'm looking forward to the day we have a decent voting system for westminster. We already do for local, Scottish and Euro elections so why not for Westminster... except of course that it plays into the hands of Labour and the Tories

I'd be unwilling to call whether that would ever occur.

It's a bold statement when the last three pages of a thread entitled "Most Annoying Person..." contains nothing but political commentary.

Definitely a putz, but for annoying, I still have to go with someone whose face I just cant stop seeing on every tabloid cover or computer screen whenever I sign-in. For the majority of the summer, I found Susan Boyle and Jon & Kate the winners because several months ago, I even remember commenting how sick I was of the lot of them.
