Plaid Cymru

Dh voted Green.

And, being a Welshman, I'm sure he would have voted Plaid Cymru - if we lived in Wales.

Green - V. safe Tory seat so decided to vote according to principles.

I was quite interested in voting SNP but we didn't have a candidate, here in S London. So unfair.

Oh, I'm sorry you others! Was just thinking about Westminster and overall majorities. Pls forgive

(All we had was Big Three + UKIP so no big choice here )

pixiefish Thu 05-May-05 23:06:26

We had- the big three, plaid cymru, green party, legalise cannabis alliance, ukip, and an independent

You were lucky. We had to live in a hatbox and eat gravel.

No one went for Kilroy then?

George galloway is now my official representative in westminster. The exchange between him and paxman was verry good.
I didn't vote for him.

green here too

tillykins Fri 06-May-05 12:54:55

Our only alternative to the three was the BNP! didn't vote for her!

PrincessPeahead Fri 06-May-05 13:33:44

my dh voted for a local independent. thought he was brave to stand so he would give him his vote (one of only 600ish votes he got in the end!). we are a true blue area and he has never voted tory and couldn't face it this time, yet couldn't face voting labour either. and the local lib dem guy is a pillock.
so there.

PrincessPeahead Fri 06-May-05 13:34:25

mind you our local tory is an extremely good local mp who works like a dog 7 days a week for the constituency so I voted for him.

TwoIfBySea Fri 06-May-05 21:43:31

Voted SNP but it was the Labour candidate who got in unfortunately.

Oh well, better luck next time!

It is odd that Labour still do so well in Scotland really when you see the mess they have made of the councils they run. Very much an old-boys network and to get anywhere (in particular housing) it is relatives first and foremost.

I voted for Galloway. I think this is the first time ever that someone I voted for won, and that's over 17 years or something of voting.

I loved the exchange between him and Paxman.

I voted for our local independent mp, Richard Taylor. Would have been lib dem but they didn't stand in our area.
He got in.

Janh Sat 07-May-05 11:30:03

Oh, the Wyre Forest hospital one, sassy? I read about him, he sounds great.

sassy Sat 07-May-05 19:29:12

That's him, Jan. He is ok, I suppose - best of a bad bunch, but aren't they all?! When the campaign started he was really revolutionary and got tons of support. His majority was 17,000 last time round. However, being a lone voice means he hasn't done a fat lot in parliament; sits on lots of health committees etc but pretty low profile generally. And the hospital is now in a worse state than it was in 2001. BUT when i looked at his voting record it was quite close to my own views on stuff like Iraq, tuition fees, immigration etc, so he got my vote.
BTW he has been a great guy in local community; turns up to lots of school fetes etc. Bless.
