I think voting is an obligation as well as a privilege. There are plenty of political parties out there that mean you can vote for SOMEONE and have a clean concience. The main parties are all a bit shit at the moment ( hence the Galloway Result) but voting for anyone but them is more of a protest than just staying home, surely?
I'm not looking for a fight here, just voicing an opinion. I've been to far too many countries that don't have the right to vote to ever take it for granted.
