Election Day approaches

So tomorrow is election day and here in the wonderful constituency of North Down we have a vast array of names to pick from.

It seems though that the incumbent, Sylvia Hermon (who was elected in 2005 as an Ulster Unionist but who has since left the party after disagreeing with their decision to form an electoral pact with the Conservatives) is the favourite to retain her seat as an independent.

However, I I have been unable to find out what a single one of here policies are. The leaflet that came through he door only mentioned her achievements in the past like it was some sort of hastily written CV. Her website also contains nothing to tell us what she stands for and she has made no appearanes on TV.

How can anyone vote for a candidate that seemingly has no policies? Even more pressing, how can that candidate be the favourite to win?

At least the Conservative and Unionist candidate gave us some policies and 'Call Me Dave' Cameron paid a visit to us yesterday.

Dont get me wrong, I still haven't made up my mind but we shall see if anything happens to sway my vote one way or the other in the next 24 hours.
