haha

Wished i voted now , didn't go due to protesting and the bloody Tories have got in down here.  That will taech me. Labour never get in so no-one votes for them.
I think everyone should use their vote, whoever they vote for - even spoiling a voting paper or voting for someone I don't like. But the system isn't very good - I believe in a transferable vote system.

I voted Plaid Cymru, as I didn't think Arthur Scargill's Socialist Labour Party had much chance - but I'm amazed that Wales have given more votes to the bloody Tories than any other party (bearing in mind that Wales didn't have a Tory MP from 1997!), even if them and Labour and PC are all pretty close - only 0.2% difference between them all.
And Labour have lost a Welsh seat to those Ukip barmpots - they're not much better than the BNP c***s in my book!!!

But - 70% didn't vote  :'(

I was disappointed with the result up here, even though the SNP thumped Labour in terms of votes they still only got two seats as did Labour...the way the system works we could thump them again in a General Election and they'll still get a good number of seats...Funny seeing old Nick get egg on his face quite literally, should remember that it was old Labour voters that put him in...

Many old Labour voters are stupid - as are many voters.

A letter in the Times on Tuesday said that just over 50% of the votes were for parties supporting a EU referendum (except that their candidates would still be happy to join the gravy train, of course  :D).

So, 30% voted, so I suppose around 85% of the population don't want a referendum (or don't care).
