I'm not going to vote

I don't have a UKIP candidate in my ward. I have 3 Tories who are currently sitting councillors and who I really don't like (one of whom was incredibly rude to me in the local paper) and some Labour and Lib Dems.

But none of these people represent my views so, as I have said before, I will simply not vote.

Judging by the increase in the number of candidates from UKIP in this election though, I suspect that next time round I will have a UKIP candidate to vote for.

Oh Trixy! Surely you would have made an excellent candidate? You could always spoil you ballot paper by writing UKIP or NONE OF THE ABOVE across it.

Yeah, perhaps next time you'll be the candidate...

I moved house so I couldn't be the candidate, alas.

And also am rather busy helping others with their campaigns.

I can't see me going home on election day simply to spoil my ballot paper, when, in fact, a lower voter turnout will say much more...

I hope you don't end up with a half witted UKIP candidate like mine!
