We had quite a choice including UKIP and the BNP. Our MP for the last million years has been Alan Williams, Labour. Okay, perhaps not a million but he's been there since 1964. Now he's retired and, apparently, there's a good chance that the LibDems will get in. In fact I understand that Swansea West is being viewed as a key seat.
At the last election I voted LibDem because I wanted to protest, largely about the war in Iraq. I'm still mad about the MPs expenses scandal and other stuff but if I voted LibDem they may get in. That would mean a seat less for Labour increasing the chances of the Conservatives winning.
Truth is, at heart I'm a Michael Foot sort of Labourite.
Now if I stay up for a bit tonight, does that entitle me to goodies and treats, a little party all on my own? That's the really important issue.
