    What irritates me is people implying that there's no point voting if you're not in a marginal seat or that voting for a third place party in a marginal seat is a wasted vote.

    What they're failing to recognise is that if enough of those wasted votes are placed then even if those second or third placed parties don't gain enough votes to win, they may gain enough to turn that constituency in to a more closely contested one, so come the next election things become more interesting.

    What I'd like to see is a poll to show how all the constituencies would vote if everyone voted for who they wanted in rather than who they wanted out.
