    I've just been to vote in the EU elections. I was surprised at the number of joke parties that are involved in the SE Constituency:

    Christian Party "Proclaiming Christ's Lordship"

    The Labour Party

    The Peace Party - Non-Violence, Justice, Environment

    The Roman Party. Ave!

    There are also a significant number of harmless no hope nutter parties:

    English Democrats

    Jury Team

    No2EU: Yes to Democracy

    Pro Democracy:

    Socialist Labour Party

    The Green Party

    United Kingdom First

    United Kingdom Ind

    Unfortunately the BNP scum are on there as well. Hopefully they will not get many votes.
  2. At 0700 hrs and a very few seconds I knew who was winning, because I was the first to cast my vote. And no, I'm not telling you who it was.
  3. The Christians mob were on the Wales list too, along with something called "The Jury Team"

    I think 'special' might be the answer you are after.
  5. I believe the correct spelling, in this context, is "speshul".

    Check out the shape of the guy's head:

    Least he has 2 eyes in roughly the right place, not so common in Cornwall......
    Ask him if he has a tail (would confirm he is a local boy).

    The Peace Party look somewhat 'special' too.

    Editing to add. I am trying to add an image on here and for some reason it won't let me.
  8. I just noticed the name - Dick Cole - Say it out loud :D :D 8O

    The Peace Party look a bit 'special' as well.

    (Trying again)
  10. This Lot who were top of the list caused me to guffaw loudly in my polling booth when I first unfolded the scroll that was my ballot paper.

    As a side note there have been hundreds of complaints as the officials have been folding the huge ballot papers so 'efficiently' that people haven't been able to find their candidate. Here they were thinking that their ballot paper was only 9 ft long when infact it was 12 ft. Outrageous!
  11. Dick Cole - what a great name!
  12. Irritating god awful accent as well. I don't think I've ever met anyone from Cornwall that I didn't have an overwhelming desire to mow down with my car.
  13. From their Wiki entry:

    The only thing that would be better than this would be finding out Nick Griffin's grandpa was a Bangladeshi waiter. :D
  14. Fro the Peace party's Aims...

    " Enhancing the intrinsic harmony and inter-connectedness of people with their natural and man-made surroundings"

    Anyone know what that means?
    Am I supposed to 'inter-connect' with a tree?

    :? :? :?
