I voted

I voted yes for AV.

I'm not a fan of AV, not really. It's better than FPTP, certainly. But a kick in the stomach is better than a knee to the groin. Being better isn't the highest of praise. Sadly, everyone I know seems to be voting no for it – and solely to spite the Lib Dems who they loathe with a fiery passion. I share their loathing but not their methods.

On the Council I voted for whoever would keep the Tories and the Lib Dems out – which isn't especially hopeful here, but I have to try. I don't want or trust either of them but will likely be saddled with both.

I had a snarly argument out the front of the polling place since it was nearly blocked with elderly Tories trying to force election literature on people. I don't need the bigots blocking the way to vote and I don't to have their pamphlets with their tripe pressed on me when I try to vote it pisses me off it does.

I had a second anger moment because I had to REMOVE said Tory pamphlet tripe from out of my voting cubicle before I could vote. Not even remotely amused.
