Follow the link and take the quick survey; see which party you would vote for if you voted on policies alone without knowing whose they are.
The survey gives both your result, the national result and the result for people who have taken it from Lewes constituency!

I think the Lib Dems say Greens and Labour can't get a majority on the council rather than they can't win in Lewes, because to say that they can't win a seat would be false. But yes, it is "yawn". The Greens are the second party in Lewes and have been for a while and the Lib Dems will know that. The reason UKIP and the Greens show so highly in the poll is that when times are hard people want radical change, and as has already been pointed out, the three main parties are all very similar to each other. Tories seem to be going towards UKIP, Labour voters towards Green. I think apathy comes from repeatedly being let down: nationally we have parties that change principles at the drop of a hat, locally we have politicians who switch parties or go independent after election and don't have the courage (some might say integrity) to immediately stand down and seek re-election on their new manifesto.
