How to vote

I don't think I've ever had such a difficult decision to make for an election. My general tendency is to vote left, but I also do not see the point in voting for anti-EU candidates in the EU election, and the main left candidate from the Socialist Labour Party is anti-EU. Even if I was anti-EU, I think it would be pointless to vote for an anti-EU candidate. The EU does not decide whether Britain is a member of the EU, the British parliament does that. As Britain is in the EU, you need MEPs that can represent their constituencies enthusiastically and the anti-EU brigade can't do that.

I also don't want to vote for any of the three main parties as they deserve a bloody nose after the expenses scandal.

That really leaves the Green Party as a leftish party that is pro-EU, but I also disagree with the whole idea than humans cause global warming as a fact. It is a theory and one of many theories.

So, a dilemma. I think the Green Party just edges it, but I'll make a final decision after sleeping on it.
