In all seriousness, I think that not many people will vote—I anticipate a very low turnout. I also anticipate a hung Parliament, with the Tories as the largest party. I think it likely that they will form a coalition with the Lib Dems—a coalition that may even be beneficial to the country. After all, I like the Lib Dems proposal for raising the personal tax allowance to £10,000 (although I would like to see it up at £12,500, personally) but I think that the Tories' education policy has a good deal of merit too.
Ultimately, however, your humble Devil will still be donning the nose-pegs when wandering out to vote in this general election—once more, I shall be voting for the party that I dislike the least. Some of you, however, have the chance to vote for liberty; some of you have the chance to vote for a Libertarian candidate.

As Anna Raccoon has reported, Martin has already been having a little trouble with his oh-so-diligent local press—being comprehensively stitched up by a reporter who is, apparently, a supporter of one of the other minor parties in that constituency. It is, it seems, par for the course but has the added bonus of giving bloggers the opportunity to mock the MSM for their pathetic standards of journalism.
The Libertarian Party is also standing a couple of local candidates.

Do go out and vote for your local Libertarian candidate. Wouldn't it be nice, when people asked you how you voted, to be able to avoid all of the excuses and hedging with which one often finds oneself justifying one's vote?
Wouldn't it be nice to be able say, quite simply, "I voted for freedom—mine and yours."
