It's much harder than giving up smoking, where politics is concerned.
Both Obnoxio and Al-jahom reckon that joining the Labour party and then voting for 'Sweaty' Balls as leader would ensure that Labour drop into the Bog of Eternal Stench forever.
They are right. It is a good idea.
But - I can't. I've never joined a political party before and the first time, for me, cannot be Labour. It would be like submitting your virginity to Prescott the Hut, soon to be Lord Prescott of Bulimia and Chins.
I'd just feel so... dirty.
I agree with Mrs Rigby on this. It is a good idea but self-sacrifice can only go so far.
If you're made of sterner stuff, go for it.
As for me, I'm saving myself for a party that's a little more serious about the future.
