of course the elections are a damp squib, the best way to protect our democratic way of life in these difficult times is to remove the possibility for change from our elections. the last thing democracy needs right now is a lot of people voting for something they believe in.

Is it me, or are we in a really damp, wet and soggy election campaign?
I see zero substance, and zero passion on any side.. no new policies.. no one really saying anything, and no one fighting for the heart and soul of the nation..
Personally, I thought all sides had not only everything to fight for, but also everything to lose, so I find that lack of anything substantial rather puzzling.
I have to admit I was expecting a bit more gusto on topics like immigration, the EU, the economy, the expenses scandal etc..
It is almost is no side wants to win..
If I was on a conspiracy site I would be saying something along the lines that they know something is going to happen so are going through the motions only..
Am I alone in thinking this election campaign lacks substance?
1. Introduce a proportional voting system
2. Scrap ID cards and roll back the database state
3. A fully elected second chamber
4. English votes on English laws
5. A Written Constitution
