So. The election is tomorrow and if you're in the UK I want to take this opportunity to tell you to vote.

I don't care who you vote for (well I'd really like it if you didn't vote Tory, but I'm not going to stop you), the most important thing is that you actually vote.

I think voting is one of the most important democratic processes we have and it's important that everyone has their say. Also if you don't vote, you automatically lose you're complaining priveleges - you have no right to complain if you didn't make your voice heard when you had the chance. Conversely if you vote and the people you voted for don't win you have a free pass to complain as much you like.

So please just turn up at your polling station and make your voice heard.

So how do you feel about the democratic process now after seeing the latest budget! 20% VAT, my God!!

The democratic process is fine and dandy.

I can't say I'm happy about 20% VAT, or with many of the decisions that the coalition is making, but it could be a lot worse. *shrugs*

Labour would have had to have done similar things - maybe not as ruthlessly, but they still would have needed to make cuts.

Unfortunately for the lib dems, they're now caught up in the unpopularity of the Tories, and have basically fuxed themselves, but morally and ethically, there was no other decision Nick Clegg could have made. And while the Lib Dems do have some control in the coalition, they are a small minority, and can't influence the tories that much.

But I think that next election, Labour will be back, cause this is making a lot of people unhappy. And while I don't want to buy into media hype, I'm not sure how much longer this coalition will actually last. :( so the next election could be sooner rather than later.
