Indeed, David. Maybe we should try to get some CF representation on there, too? :P

I actually didn't vote this time, missed my opportunity and all that. Kinda sucks, although I'm not sure I'd have made an impact >.<

Because they are legally recognised as a political party in this country and as we have laws which allow for freedom of speech we have to give these people the right to voice their opinion and stand for election . It is in fact IMO only the people behind the party who are racist some of their policies make very good sense and are policies i would like to see taken up by other parties under different leadership they would represent a more serious choice IMO

everyone has the right to run for election, that's a part of living in a democratic society.
