I had a FF councillor on my doorstep on t night who wanted to know why I wasn’t going to vote for FF. So I told him.
One of the many outrageous things he said:
“software patents are NOT a NATIONAL issue”,
” that I’m an intellectual snob for thinking the referendum was rushed”
” …”most” of those in the antiwar march WERE anti-american. “
“of course we’ll call another referendum if this one goes the wrong way – we can do what we like , we’re the government”
“but india used e-voting”
“the current e-voting machine WILL be used – its just a matter of time”
” of course I don’t trust computers that banks use”
