www.dailymail.co.uk said:

Voters are so disgusted with politics that the three main party leaders are collectively the least popular in the history of polling.

A survey yesterday put the negative ratings of David Cameron, Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband at the lowest cumulative rating, a staggering -121 per cent.

The Prime Minister saw his personal rating the difference between the number of voters who think he is doing a good job and those who do not plunge to -27 in the latest YouGov poll.

We want Ron Paul!!

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

Why would anyone be surprised that these "career politicians" should be so despised?

Whats needed is a totally new political party staffed with people that care about this country & it's people, unfortunately the present cartel would never let it happen.

I vote every time (30 years worth), & i've never seen anything change that has benefitted the average working man in the street.
I've seen minor changes that have benefitted the 'can't work' or 'won't work' & i've seen minor changes that benefit those who don't need it, & i've constantly seen everybody in between paying for it.
In the end i tend to agree with the old adage that 'the people get the government they deserve'.

But there's the thing: vote for whom? If there's no difference between them, what difference does it make? You could vote for Green, BNP, Communist Party of Great Britain (Marxist-Leninist) or even George Galloway, but it would make no difference at all to who's actually in Government, would it?

  Yep I guess you're right,same old faces,same old board game,but I think this land needs a shake up,the trouble is there is no one around to do it,Lib-Dems had a go a few years back but unfortunately they also had nothing to offer.And so we go on until something gross happens,like a plague,earthquake,tsunami, then we might see who has the guts to take over,M.Mouse and his pals could do a better job at the moment,but they are American so thats out..Should we bring back the Kings and Queens ?

If more people vote for any of those parties than vote for any other party then it WOULD make a difference.

I advocate voting for UKIP.  They're the party we need in power.

    No offence but may I ask why ?,have they got something going that we dont know about ? if so why arent they coming up with it ? sorry 3 questions in one sentence.Around this area the sad baskets always vote Lib, so you have as much chance of changing it,as catching a flea in a mattress factory....

How do you know that UKIP aren't coming up with what we're looing for?  Do you even know what their policies are?

I think that if the three main parties are unpopular then the British people should go for something new, like UKIP.
