I think this
is one of Sean Gabb's best articles:
My own approach to the election is simple. I want Labour to lose, and I do not want the Conservatives to win.
On why Labour should lose:
My objection to Labour is its leadership of a cultural revolution that is obviously directed at stripping us of our liberties. It is not, of course, a revolution that began in 1997. It has been a project for at least the past half century of our entire ruling class, which I will define – yet again – as the sum of political, administrative, educational, legal media and business interests that gain status and income from an enlarged and active state: perhaps we can also call this the Enemy Class by virtue of its object.
As for the Tories:
The whole Conservative strategy since 1997 has been nothing but a competing set of Quisling Right deceptions. The Conservatives have – and have had – no intention of rolling back the cultural revolution. Rather than discuss the nature of Enemy Class control of the administration, of the media and of education, and show how this is being used to destroy both individual freedom and national identity, and consider how best to restore liberal democracy, they have given themselves to fraudulent gestures.
Why don't we read this sort of thing in the newspapers? It's simple really: they're part of the Enemy Class too.
Comments made on previous template:
To vote is to recognise that we have a legitimate democracy. With 25% of the electorate vote last time the most corrupt government in my lifetime was legitimised, and has brought down much of the evolved constitution of more than a thousand years. As Dr Gabb says the Conservatives would be little better and might prevent a real solution.

Vote for somebody. Vote to keep out the worst, as most people do, if you wish. Vote for whoever you think is best, or at least better, if you wish. Vote Monster Raving Loony, to prove you exist, if you wish.
It is pretty nearly the only actual power we have so use it.

There isn't really anymore to say. This man is a national treasure. The problem millions have is to find someone to vote for. In truth the right thing is not to vote at all as a matter of concience.
