Obviously I’m definitely planning to vote, I just haven’t decided whether or not to spoil my paper. Resources are available from CARE and the Christian Institute which aim to provide the kind of information on which an evangelical Christian might be inclined to base their choice – but the general principles are never that easy to implement in practice.
Especially when the official friendly guide from the Scottish Executive explains patiently that you should use the number “1” to indicate “the candidate you like best.” What if I don’t like any of them? What if, rather than focusing on their likeability, I would prefer to rate them on their trustworthiness and estimated chance of putting worthwhile policies into practice?
Ach, never mind.
