BBC Panel on Voter Apathy

A number of people are discussing on the BBC why they are not willing to vote. In fact I know a few people who are going to the polling stations to write "I have no confidence in the system" and tick a box beside it.

BBC NEWS | Election 2005 | Have Your Say | UK voters' panel: Vanessa Walters
It is because of the situation of not being able to individually vote off the PM that websites like "backingblair.co.uk" recommend voting Tory. But would you really want to vote Tory just to oust Blair? A agre that the consituency system might hold for local government, but that it is possibly the wrong way to vote the national government.

Apparently it is for those who have so little faith in our system (I would agree) it is flawed that the rather amusingly titled "Vote For Yourself Dream Ticket" party have popped up.
