Who will I vote for

We are beginning to get phone calls from polsters asking who we are going to vote for. Who knows, we may even get one of the parties knocking on our door.

We are not obliged to tell anyone who we are going to vote for, voting – unless you apply for postal voting – is still a secret between yourself and the voting slip.

However, I am prepared to stand up and be counted.

I will tell all who are willing to listen what my voting intentions are.

I will check my areas candidates list, the day before the election, and will vote for anyone who has signed the “British Declaration of Independence”, linked here.

It is highly unlikely that more than one candidate will have signed this.

Veritas candidates will have no problem with this.

The ordinary candidates of the UK Independence Party may have done so as well. However, I doubt the senior members will. I secretly suspect they have been seduced by the huge payments they receive from the EU in salaries and expenses and now, no longer want to leave the EU.

Most of the Labour candidates are hell bent in keeping us in the EU. The Conservatives have ordered their candidates not to sign it and the Liberal Democrats think it’s life giving manna that comes out of the EU’s arse, instead of endless reams of crap!

If no candidate on my constituency has signed the BDI, then the only option for me to do is to use a large black felt pen and write “They are all a bunch of bankers” across the ballot paper. No charge of indecency could be brought, but everyone knows what was meant!

Take a look at the BDI via the link after my sign-out below and to wet your appetite, here is an extraction from their site…

What we did at the last election

The British Declaration of Independence is the new name for the South Molton Declaration which, at the last general Election, asked candidates to commit to a Bill asserting the Sovereignty of the British People by voting for an Act of Parliament.

In all some 100 MPs or Candidates either signed or gave their full support without signing.

We commissioned a MORI Poll which had the following devastating results:

42% of all voters would switch their vote to another candidate who had signed or WOULD NOT VOTE AT ALL if their own candidate refused to sign. 34% of Labour voters would either vote for a different candidate who had signed (24%) or would not vote (10%) and 41% of Liberal Democrat voters would either vote for a different candidate (31%) or would not vote (10%) if their own candidate did not sign. An extraordinary 55% of Conservatives would not vote for their preferred candidate (40% would switch to a candidate who had signed and 15% “would not vote”) if their candidate did not sign. No fewer than 72% of younger Conservative voters (age 18-24) would either vote for a different candidate who had signed (40%) or would not vote (32%) if their preferred candidate did not sign.

The small turnout of 59% of the electorate (a 14% drop on the 1997 Election) shows how people increasingly refuse to vote for those who refuse to govern. This was a vindication of our Constitutional Campaign then – and of the British Declaration of Independence today.

But most important of all we set out the strategy by which our democratic nationhood and the sovereignty of the British people will be asserted in Parliament. We have provided the means by which voters and candidates could remain with their traditional politics and yet re-assert the sovereignty of the people and reclaim their parliamentary authority.
