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!

I think I would rather have a lib dem-tory coalition with the condition that there's a referendum on electoral reform. I think it's crazy we still have this ridiculous first past the post system. It's completely unrepresentative and serves no purpose other than to make it easier to count.

Also, as an ex brightonion I'm ashamed that the green party have gotten a seat. It is appalling that a party based entirely around a single scientific issue (the environment) is so unscientific in its policies. They are completely opposed to any form of animal research, without any regard for the potential benefits to medicine. They oppose nuclear power for seemingly no reason at all* besides the fact that it sounds a bit scary and no environmentalist would go for it**. Environmental issues are important because of the impact they have on humans. I don't give an orangutan's whisker what happens to fluffy animals and trees; they basically value this vague notion of "environment" more than the actual people who rely on it.

*They claim it is unsafe and expensive, neither arguments are particularly convincing
**Yes, the lib dems are much the same and I'm a huge hypocrite
