Part of me wants this to have some effect on the outcome of the election. The rest of me knows it won't. Your thoughts?
some marginals could (for lack of a better term) be 'bought' by someone who isn't even resident in this country.
i know we hardly have the most democratic system going and that apathy is a big issue, turn out will be well well down, so any big spend will pretty much seal victory in all but the safest seats. especially with the expenses thing likely to see any marginal labour seat fall regardless of how that particular member has acted simply because they're the governing party.
i'm not saying i necessarily want another labour government but i'd like to at least pretend that there was a fight to be had in some of these constituencies
for fraud, for that is what cheating the public purse is.
