Standing for election
Pointless in this country
First, the electorate are basically just to thick. The VAST majority of the people I know vote for the same parties ignoring any aspect of the behaviour of the party, the MP, the realities of their actions or the party historically most beneficial to their current circumstances. My mum voted for the local Conservative because Milibands suit didn't fit (yes, really) and a vote for anyone else was 'wasted' because they never get in.
Second, even if you do get a substantial portion of the votes over all the two main parties and the boundary commission have stacked it against anyone breaking in (1 seat for ukip compared to the % of the vote says a huge amount). And of course this is the system that project fear mk 1 managed to persuade people to vote for.
Frankly the country is doomed because the current bunch of self serving liars have it sewn up because the stupid idiots who could change it are too damned lazy to even think of doing so
