Think before you vote

David Peter has a biting criticism of the present political condition, for which not only the media but also we voters are to blame.

A fair voting system is only part of the solution. After all, we have BNP representatives in the European Parliament as a result of proportional voting and STV is no guarantee against rogues coming to the top, as the Irish Republic has shown.

The reason why the BNP are doing so well is because of the anti Islamic feelings whipped up by the Tory Press in the UK, the current government which won't go to the country until it has too, and the MPs expenses scandal.

It's a pity that Michael Gove and David Cameron have jumped on the same bandwagon: whipping up anti-Islamic feeling, based on dodgy evidence.
