X marks the spot

The college of cardinals has gone in to vote for the next pope and the run up to the election here is gatherding speed.

I am a STRONG advocate of people using their vote. If you don't vote, you're abdicating responsibility for the way the world is run.

Some people say they don't vote because they don't see the difference between the parties. Well, just for you, the Christian Aid website has a link to a hand website that can help you decide how to vote.

I did the test and my only shock was a slight plus on UKIP - aaagh!

The LibDems take a strong stand against tax cuts and a strong one in favour of public services: they would make long-term residential care for the elderly free across the UK, and scrap university tuition fees. They are in favour of a ban on smoking in public places, but would relax laws on cannabis. They propose to change vehicle taxation to be based on usage rather than ownership.
