General Election imminent?
! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.
There is much speculation on a general election date with strong evidence that it’s going ot be delcared soon.
However, I have a big problem with the system. Why is it up to the One Eyed Wonder of Wankistan to decide when to hold an election? Why should the ruling party dictate when an election is held? The system gives the party in power an unfair advantage over the opposition.
If the Electoral Commission could be made even remotely unbiased then they should be the ones to decide when to hold an election, either at the end of the maximum term or when petitioned by an opposition party.
