that party would have a clear majority.
I have often wondered if John Major won his post-Thatcher election precisely because many people who would have voted against him had deliberately
taken themselves off the register. Whatever this facebook group are trying to achieve, the actual result might be handing the election to Cameron.
Actually, thinking about that...maybe I should keep my mouth shut and let them do it.
