- Apparently, we are all too thick to use anything else other than a cross on a ballot paper. (Well, future generations may be, after Govey’s education reforms…)

- Other Parties may gain seats at the expense of the two main parties. (Note to Dave – yes, thats what voters want, you freak.)

- Err… thats it.
Come off it Tory boy, you and The Taxpayers Alliance can take a running jump.
