Please don't let the Tories win. Please don't let the Tories win...

It seems like around 90% of the people I know are voting Lib Dems, 9% are going for Labour, and abotu 1% want the Tories back in power to rape and pillage the land. The annoying thing is that I suspect that the Tories are going to win. Poop.

Anyway, I hope all you Brits have voted!

all of my british politic knowledge comes from this passage in bridget jones' diary: the edge of reason:

"Are you alright?" whispered Mark out of the corner of his mouth.
"Yes," I muttered, head down.
"You're..quivering. Come on. What is it?"
Eventually I had to tell him.
"So I vote Tory, what's wrong with that?" he said, staring at me incredulously.
"Shhhh," I whispered, looking nervously round the table.
"What's the problem?"
"It's just.." I began, wishing Shazzer were here, "I mean, if I voted Tory I'd be a social outcast. It would be like turning up at Cafe Rouge on a horse with a pack of beagles in tow, or having dinner parties on shiny tables with side plates."
"Rather like this, you mean?" He laughed.
"Well, yes," I muttered.
"So what do you vote then?"
"Labour, of course," I hissed. "Everybody votes Labour."
"Well, I think that's patently been proved not to be the case, so far," he said. "Why, as a matter of interest?"
"What?"
"Why do you vote Labour?"
"Well," I paused thoughtfully, "Because voting Labour stands for being left wing."
"Ah," He seemed to think this was somehow hugely amusing. Everybody was listening now.
"And socialist," I added.
"Socialist. I see. Socialist meaning.."
"The workers standing together."
"Well, Blair isn't exactly going to shore up the powers of the unions is he?" He said. "Look what he's saying about Clause 4."
"Well, the Torries are rubbish."
"Rubbish?" he said. "The economy's in better shape now than it has been in seven years."
"No it's not," I said emphatically. "Anyway, they've probably just put it up because an election's coming."
"Put what up?" He said. "Put the economy up?"
"How does Blair's stand on Europe compare to Major's?" Louise joined in.
"Yar. And why hasn't he matched the Tory promise to increase spending on health year by year in real terms?" said Prince Andrew.
Honestly. Off they went again all showing off to each other. Eventually could stand it no longer.
"The point is you are supposed to vote for the principle of the thing, not the itsy-bitsy detail about this percent and that percent. And it is perfectly obvious that Labour stands for the principle of sharing, kindness, gays, single mothers, and Nelson Mandela as opposed to braying, bossy men, having affairs with everyone shag-shag-shagging left right and center and going to the Ritz in Paris then telling off the presenters on the Today program."
There was a cavernous silence round the table.
"Well, I think you've got it in a nutshell there," said Mark, laughing and rubbing my knee. "We can't argue with that."
