    Would if they put a candidate up... locally it's a choice of Labour, Communists or the BNP

    Sigh. I'm going to need to vote next election. I hope the pirate party or someone like that is running a candidate in my area.

    Or just spoil your vote as they count those. Then pundits don't try to work out why so many people voted for fringe party's

    It might be better to vote for an independent. They wouldn't have a party to pressure them and force their ideas on the candidate. But proper research needs to be done on those independents.
    Maybe I should stand myself :p

    It's about time they gave us the option to vote against a candidate rather than spoil our vote in protest. I'd wager that would dramatically increase voter turn-out.

    Good to see that before they've even started the censorship rampage they've already lost control of it.

    They make such a fuss about freedoms of the press on the radio and how government regulation will run riot on these freedoms and thus the UK. Now, to an extent I see their point.

    It's been minus however minutes until this happens and they've already begun abusing it.

    Well done politicians. Well done. I am sure you have other redeeming features such as a spoken grace and proprietary, eloquence and some history degrees or whatever it was you did before you became in charge of a nation; but you sure do look like incompetent, oafish, clumsy and quite frankly intellectually juvenile antiques when it comes to the world of technology.

    Where they have burned books, they will end in burning human beings.

    Abusing it before it even happens was the only way to prove those wrong who predicted it would be abused as soon as it is in place.

    So, is Al-Jazeera on the list yet?
    Showing the news from a different standpoint than the western gevernments is bound to be 'extremist' political content...

    I wonder how long it'll be before any non-rightwing political views are classed as extremism and censored? :/

    It's worrying that on the 10 May 1933 a German government official proclaimed "The era of extreme Jewish intellectualism is now at an end." after 25,000 books had been burnt.

    I guess as you cant burn the internet the next best thing is censorship.

    The closer you get to the American Empire's way of doing things, the further you will be from the EU's way of doing things. One is collapsing the other ascending, I'll let you figure out who is who, oh wait you won't have access to the "extremist" web pages that would give you info on this.

    Reject America, and embrace the EU, it is the UK's only hope, otherwise you will become the 51st state, one without a vote.

    You could always stand up for what you believe in and run as a candidate yourself. You need ten subscribers and £500 to stand.

    Because people like us have sat around moaning for too long and not stood up and against them in the general elections.

    See my response to redflames. And see below.

    This is what I have done since I could vote, however, it doesn't solve this issue as people will still vote for the main parties, either as the see no alternative or because they feel strongly about not letting another specific party represent them.

    This. I think that if I do decide to stand my stand out policy will be that my constituents should be able to decide how I vote in the HoC and that it should be very easy for them to feed that back to me. Of course I am thinking of a technological solution.
    On my part I should give the views of the other main political parties on how they would like the vote to go, and I should express my own inclination and reasoning for how I would like the core to go, but it really should be my constituents that have the final say.


    P.S. I woke up and remembered that I wanted to contribute to this discussion a few days ago but never got around to it. I've been to wonder if the kind of change that is needed is even possible in our current political climate.
