One rule for the rich.

So the Tory peers who made fraudulent expenses claims on the public purse are being released early from prison, and from their very low sentences, doubtless to make way for those far below them on the wealth ladder who shockingly deprived a retail chain of a tea-shirt.

I've said it before: the wealthy and powerful are only supportive -- and forgiving and tolerant -- of themselves. Don't let the Tories con you into thinking they care about anything else. One year in, and they're handing the NHS over to the private sector, depriving low and middle income young people of fair access to education and giving the banks years and years before any kind of restrictions come into play.
Yes, the last Labour government wasn't perfect. It had its share of sleaze. Blair deserves to face the courts for getting us into an illegal, unnecessary and cruel war. But this lot are the hand of Big Capital and nothing else and supporting them will only make the rich richer.

You could spoil your ballot paper as a protest. And every vote is counted, so even if the seat is safe, the objections go on record, be they spoiled papers or votes for other candidates. I tend to feel that votes should be used, come what may, because they were hard to get and easy to lose.
