Guido’s Musical Manifesto

The Doors

“Yeah, we could vote for the Lib Dems, the party we believe in, and there’s a tiny, tiny risk we could let the Tories in by the back door. Or we could vote for Labour and let Bush’s Republicans in through Downing Street’s front door.”

Telegraph Endorses Anti-Political Manifesto

Alright, to be exact Christopher Fildes, the doyen of City journalists, endorses anti-politics. He also quotes from the latest poll which shows the anti-politics cause looking set to be triumphant on Thursday, remember our slogan “Don’t Vote, It Only Encourages Them!”

Now, with the finish in sight, the leaders of other parties resort to scare tactics, urging us to come out and vote for fear of letting the other side in. They have a long way to go, to judge by the latest poll from NotmeGuv, exclusive (of course) to these pages.

Unlike all its rivals, NotmeGuv covers the field. It seeks to reflect the intention of every potential elector and does not confine its results to the dwindling majority who still intend to vote. Nullists first, it says, and the rest nowhere:

Nullist 40%
Labour 21%
Conservative 19%
Lib. Dem. 15%
Others 5%

If this pattern is replicated on Thursday, the people will not have spoken but they will have made their point all the same. None of the above, they must fear, will pay attention for long.

David Cameron on political promiscuity…

“On May 7 you could go to bed with Nigel Farage and wake up with Ed Miliband. Not one bit of that works for me.”



cynic says:

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
