Other Political Parties Are Also Available

The next Prime Minister is only going to come from the Conservative or Labour Party with the Lib Dems, SNP and UKIP making up the numbers but each election we also get a chance to put our cross next to some of the lesser known parties, many of who pay the £500 deposit and then lose it as they do not gain the required 5% of the votes cast in that constituency to receive it back again.
So if you don't want to vote for any of the mainstream parties you can always go straight towards the bottom of the ballot paper where the minor parties live.
Parties such as the Cannabis Is Safer Than Alcohol Party, No Candidate Deserves My Vote Party, The Pirate Party, The Common Good Party, the Idle Toad Party, the Roman Party, the Church of the Militant Elvis Party, Fancy Dress Party and the long running Official Monster Raving Loony Party.
With the way things are going we could see the prospect of a gurning lunatic with ridiculous policies gaining seats in Parliament, or UKIP as they are also called.
