Find the most unlikely candidate and vote for them. If everyone voted for JR Soapstone (equal rights for Owls party) someone, somewhere might just get the message!

Heís right in one respect. The world is laughing at us and our Neanderthal population. Watch JRM live on Facebook and gammon watch. Rarely do we see a properly formed sentence. Itís mostly ďWTO NOW!Ē despite the fact they donít have an O level between them, let alone an Economics one. Turkeys voting for Christmas. Gobble, gobble.

What I do find interesting with this particular election is that the Liberal Democrats have failed to find enough candidates to challenge all the seats whereas Labour have.

Conservatives have also, but that's a given really. For years we have been told that Labour can't win here, but now they could and seem to have a decent amount of support. That's quite a change as one of the reasons they couldn't win before was simpy because there wasn't anyone standing!

As for my personal vote, I am so torn. I only have the three major parties to choose from so I might just go and draw a big c0ck on the paper. And balls obviously.

I think the sensible thing to do is to be concerned only with local issues. Iíll probably vote Green even though our candidate is a bit of a knob.

My own personal prediction is that both Tory and labour parties take a drubbing, many, many people are now thoroughly fed up with the lies and infighting from both camps.

Hmm, JRM, no O level, hmm, let's see. Oh yes, educated at Eton college. Second class honours degree at Trinity college. Learned to read company reports and balance sheets at the age of ten when he started investing in the stock market. (Note please that that's a proper degree, not a Billy Liar degree).

But he is a brexiteer so he must be a thick racist. Newres says so.

Got to be Liberal Democrats for me in the local elections. Slightly torn between them and Change UK in the upcoming European elections though.

I don't thing a c0ck and balls is strong enough. I'd wipe my a$$ on it. It will be interesting to see the number of "spoiled" or possibly "solied" ballot papers.. I believe it will be a record percentage.

That just makes him an educated fool with money on his mind, as Coolio once said.

Never understood why anyone would take the effort to get to a polling station only to spoil their ballot paper. Unless you're newres of course, they don't take kindly to people scribbling on the papers with a Crayola.

I'm more interested in whether you will be prepared to eat your words if that is not the case.

Ah yes, Plato, Sophocles, Aristotle and of course, Coolio, one of the great thinkers of this or any other time.

You may mock but there is actually quite a lot of philosophising going on in Gangsta's Paradise, for example:
