The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Eh, yes, but I just don't think Labour is a good option for the country in 2010. I'd rather see the Lib Dems take over the spirit of progressivism in the country, reducing Labour to a third party.

Beware! The Liberals are a Eurosceptic fringe party, the LibDems are those you're talking about Smiley

Is it so hard to understand ? Conservatives are awful, labour government is being an epic fail, libs have no chance to get in power.

Brown's term wasn't exactly a success. But anyways yes, I guess I'd vote labour actually.

If I'm remembering the absurdly complicated rules on the franchise between the Second and Third Reform Acts and universal male suffrage, then I wouldn't have been able to vote until 1918. Labour in all elections since (and including) then because I am a very boring person.
