Who should I vote for?

With Election day looming, I thought I might actually start to pay some interest in the soon-to-be-changing political landscape. Up until 'Bigotgate' last week I was doing a fairly good job of ignoring the whole thing, but now even I am starting to pay attention.

Due to our move south, we may not get our polling cards in time, but if they do arrive before Thursday I might just get my arse (not ass) out and vote. Question is, who should I vote for? Luckily for the apolitical-minded like me there are websites like whoshouldyouvotefor.com. All you need to do is indicate whether you agree or disagree with a handful of policy-related statements to see which of the political parties you side with. As you can see from my results below, it would seem I'll be voting for the Green Party (which kinda surprised me...!).

So who will you vote for?

Update: Nice article in today's Independent about the media's response to Bigotgate, written by Armando Ianucci (the man behind The Thick of It).

Mine came out as I thought with a +36 which is just as well as I've already voted for them!

Not sure I'd trust a website that called itself whoshouldyouvotefor.com. rather than whomshouldyouvotefor.com

Or should that be forwhomshouldyouvote.com?

Very interesting link.It's funny how the bigotgate has influenced people and how some people are more interested in style over substance in this Election campaign.
