If voting changed anything they would make it illegal?

I sympathise with people who don't vote under the present circumstances.

The opportunity exists to run alternative candidates even without the backing of the millionaires who own the main parties body and soul.

Whatever you might think about Richard Taylor or George Galloway (or Ken Livingstone before he rejoined New Labour), they do provide evidence that candidates from outside the main parties can be elected.

In Germany the new left party gained 8 percent of the vote and 54 seats. You don't have to endorse every dot and comma of their program to realise this shows there is a potential for an alternative. An alternative which is not a "Labour Party Mark 2"
