Here's a paradox: Personally, I'm really going to struggle to vote Tory. Local MP was Ancram (snout in trough), but next door is worse - incumbent and likely to be returned is the abhorrent James Gray. So I can't really hand in my soul and vote for a Wilts Tory - furthermore IMHO CMD is a cosmetic and pretty hollow construct in the same mould as Blair. However, the Devizes Tory candidate is pretty impressive; she's intelligent and urbane, and clearly happy to be a new broom. By contrast, the Lib Dems (who I'm finding increasingly politically appealing) are fielding a slightly scattier Doris who's also a Prescott lookalike. Less convincing in her command of local issues and arguably less likely to acquit herself as an MP. If I were to pick the candidate, I'd go Tory, if I were to pick a party, I'd go Lib Dem. I'm not alone in the Pewsey Vale chattering classes in having this dilemma, and not alone in the country either. In my case I'm frankly ambivalent about a hung parliament and rather feel that an interregnum of a couple of years based on consensus might be useful, but, how do others vote? Person or party?
