I tend not to talk about who I plan to vote for, or have voted for, even though most of my friends have a pretty good idea. I view politics as rather like sexual tastes: a private and personal matter, not to be enquired about too closely for fear of getting squicked out and losing some degree of respect and fondness for my friends and colleagues.

Generally, though, at some point someone will say something to rile me enough that I lay my cards on the table.

Last night it was Sensei, who at the end of karate announced that if anyone was voting for ______'s bunch he was keeping us all in until the polling stations closed.

"Too late! Already done it!" I burst out.

(My current constituency is Lewisham West & Penge, which has been a safe seat for Labour since forever - this year Jim Dowd was ahead by more votes than the Conservative runner-up got - but I turned out because I always do, and to help keep the joke party, Liberty GB out. They got 44 votes.)
