Not exactly. Tactical votes are sort of empty, unless everyone does it and they actually come into power. It hurts the big parties a little, and if they suddenly gain too much power, it would collapse on itself. Not necessarily a bad thing.

Muz, its what the BNP stand for that become the topic of discussion. I was told that in one ward around birmingham somerhere they almost got voted in...
Most of my friends now vote UKIP, even some old staunch Labour supporters . Personally I do not see why we shell out £45 million a day to Europe. No wonder our taxes are so high and our services so poor.
I would not have a problem paying the taxes, if we got the services that warranted our tax levels.
The world really has come to a sorry state. But we just have to man up and take the blows, but don't be afraid to fight back and stand up for what's right.

I don't try to change this place, I just try to get by without it getting any worse.
'Course I live a peaceful life back in the boonies and rarely experience anything too terrible.
I know what I'm gonna say next is controversal, but I think a lot of stuff about "Chavs" and such said earlier, is a prime example of why gun control is a terrible thing. Sorry I create an off topic argument with this like I did with the elections topics But if Adam would have ran out and aimed a gun to the sky and start yelling like W3r3wolf's dad did, I think the problem would be solved forever without even firing a shot. But in Britain Adam might just get in trouble for that because of their strick gun control laws.
People who use guns for wrong will keep using them with gun control, and those of us who would rather stay out of trouble wouldn't be able to defend ourselves. Also it would allow for the government to force you to do whatever they want you to, which is why we in the US were grated the right to bear arms in the first place. You can make up some story or situation about why guns should be controlled "more" (because gun are controlled in the US just not as much), but there are more stories about why they shouldn't. Study history lest it be repeated.
But to stay on topic:
I am sorry about what happened to your daughter. Best to keep watch over her friends and ask her about who she hangs around.
Wrong. It makes it harder for people to legally obtain guns. Guns last for a very long time if you haven't noticed and even if everyone stopped making guns, there would be far too many already out there to sell on the black market.
Studies have shown that gun control doesn't work, and it's a violation of the Constitutional right to bear arms. All I have to say. Sorry, I won't go off topic any more.
