Some Independent in London changed his name by deed-poll to that.
An ex-boxer apparently.

They where taking the 'P' out of him on Channel 4s alternate election night.

I had considered a defacement of the ballot, but felt that in this modern-age, I shouldn`t have to use such a method...Mr Bloggs, up north, has voted boxxocks...again.

It's looking like a hung parliament at the mo, (00:55 GMT) I just can't get my head around the fact that we have representatives in other countries to make sure it's a fair voting system yet WE in the UK can't even get it right!! People turned away!! Lack of voting cards!! Polling stations shut with hundreds of people waiting!! WTF is going on!!! This is a shambles no matter what party you vote for!!!

If the result is `coalition`, the leaders of each party should step down, because they showed on the TV debates they cannot agree on a course of action to get us out of this mess, and have no chance in hell, of devising workable safeguards for this country, to protect us from the rising wave of discontent in parts of Europe.

I think they thought that there wouldnt have been such a high turn out.
I suppose the Live Debates can be blammed for that, re-newing some peoples intrest in the corrupt world of politics.

We'll never be happy, no matter whos in number 10.

We could all be rebranded as `virgins`...this could have a certain appeal, especially after the buggering we have been taking, metaphorically of course.

He's got no choice and in fact he has "First-dibs" as prime minister as to who he buddies up with and forms an alliance with.

It'll be Libs for sure... will be very close though, the numbers are very tight.

Yeah, it'll be the Libs, but they also want Brown to stand down.
Clegg said that in the second debate.

Edit- actually second debate.. Doh.

I thought I recognised the name,`Terry Marsh`.

WikiQuote... In 2010, Marsh became a candidate in that year's general election as an independent candidate in the seat of South Basildon and East Thurrock. Marsh changed his name by deed poll to "None Of The Above X" as a protest against there being no option to select "None of the above" as a selection in the election. Under UK law, a political party cannot call itself "None of the Above", but there is nothing banning people called "None of the Above". Marsh, or Mr. X as he is now legally known, has said that if he won the seat he would not take his seat in parliament.

...also says he was charged with the attempted murder of his former manager, the boxing promoter, Frank Warren...he seems to have an innate gift for weeding out the bad uns, should have got him to investigate the expenses scams.

Ha! I did laugh out loud at that, yes it feels like we've been taken up the rear end for some time now, I did type more on how I feel but deleted it, what's the point?.. The UK is buggered whoever gets in power, and if you think different then please, give me some faith! The politicians as far as I'm concerned are only interested in lining their own pockets; they don't give a toss about the people!! That was proved with the flipping and expenses scandal…
