    National Party.

    Sounds a bit UKIP/EDL/BNP…

    You can’t sort your kids out, but you want a hand in running a country?

    The Scottish one, presumably? 🙂

    Seems to be par for the course. Maybe if I leave them in a pub I’ll end up running the joint.

    I joined the green party, but they signed me up as a “young green” i was 23 and a full tax payer, was a little offended that i wasn’t considered an adult by them so i left. I also joined the socialist workers, but they were a bunch of unwashed dreamers. I did opt out of my unison membership contributing to the labour party though!

    On a slightly more serious note, I’d be wary about the whole nationalism thing. I know it’s in Scotland, I know it’s a different situation to England, but the potential for a gentle slide into racism of a less than tartan hue should be watched for.

    Perhaps I’m being a bit gloomy, but half an hour in my local pub with a couple of local folk has revealed a very local approach to people who might be considered not quite local.

    I joined a political party about 10 years ago, then successfully fought four borough/parish elections. It was difficult to take that very first step, as I believed I was “above all that” political silliness.

    But basically, it’s a matter of who you want making decisions affecting your life – yourself, or the other idiots.

    Go for it, Glupton – and good luck (whichever party you support) 🙂

    Anyone on here a paid up member of a political party? I’m considering taking an active role in politics, and am interested to see what the experience of others is.

    Hope you don’t mean this one. the national party

    That would be a shame, and probably rather pointless

    For the record been a member of a party and stood as a councillor. Thankfully not elected 🙂

    Party brandh meetings are like STW threads with fewer gifs and more structure. If you like bickering about minutes, you’ll love local politics.
