Which is why he had to make an alliance with the tories. It amazes me when people complain that the party that got voted into third place has f*ck all say in how the country is run, but then it's the same kind of logic that makes people vote for one pile of shit stained corrupt wankers because they're "better than the other two".
As soon as people start voting for *anyone* who isn't a main party, the better we'd be. Failing that spoil your ballot paper.
