'Got our voting car through this morning'

They give you a car to go and vote?

Which political party does that?

Oh and which election is this.

.. can we choose which make we want?

is referring to the May Council elections.

As for the 'car', that was quite obviously a slip of the finger - everyone does it, and it's probably polite not to make a thing of it.

ithink you are confussing local and general elections
the local elections coming up in may should be decided on local issues though it could give the pm a headache if people choose to use it as a vote of no confidence in the goverment however it wont remove him from power.

A general election is the one to change the government however looking at recent opinion polls i cant see that happening any time soon

My local area is a strong hold for the Residents Association.
Much prefer when it's a national election & i can use my vote wisely for a 'proper' party like this one click here

I am aways saying "I can remember this and I can remember that.." Can anyone else remember when the political parties used to actually take older and infirm people to the polls?

"Can anyone else remember when the political parties used to actually take older and infirm people to the polls?"

Yes, and local well-known worthies got similar treatment. A local clergyman once told me that the Tories had offered him a lift to the polling station. "But I'm a Labour voter" he said. Doesn't matter" they replied. "Just go in our car."
