Polling Day - Rules for Stations:

Selfies ... complex laws about maintaining the secrecy of the ballot. For instance, it's illegal to reveal how someone else has voted, which could happen inadvertently via a sloppy selfie ...

a fine of £5,000 or six months in prison if they revealed how someone else voted, even accidentally ...

Tweeting ... Under Section 66 of the Representation of the People's Act it is a criminal offence to communicate information about the way someone has voted or is about to vote, and specifically to "directly or indirectly induce a voter to display his ballot paper after he has marked it so as to make known to any person the name of the candidate for whom he has or has not voted".

Pets .... Dogs may not yet be entitled to vote but they are allowed to come and watch ... horses and ponies should be tethered up outside ... no guidance on other animals such as rabbits, ferrets or pot-bellied pigs ...

Pirates ... "There's a candidate standing in Westminster as a pirate," he said. "And if he comes in to vote in a pirate costume as is likely, we won't turn him away. The same goes for any supporters coming to vote as pirates." .... wearing party T-shirts  may be intimidating. Political figures in the wider sense may be fine, for instance a T-shirt of Che Guevara would be acceptable....  Pyjamas are allowed...

Hoodies & Burkas ... there's no requirement for voters to show their face.

Drunk? Polling station staff cannot refuse a voter simply because they are drunk or under the influence of drugs ...

Pencil On a String ... you can use a pen ... you could theoretically mark the box with a tick instead. The important thing is that your voting intention is clear.

Bring a friend - voting is a private matter so you must be alone when you go into the polling booth.

Messages to Politicians ... there's a tradition of deliberately spoiling your ballot. "None of the above" is one of the more polite ways of showing you are not apathetic, just contemptuous of the candidates on offer. These votes are included in the overall turnout.

Best of luck to all candidates X

The Pirate Party

"The Icelandic branch of the party is currently enjoying unprecedented support, although the Pirates have strong movements in the United States and Germany. In the UK, the Pirate Party received 1,348 votes in the 2010 general election.

“Traditional politics have not shown progress and people are tired of waiting for change. It is good that people are rejecting corruption and hubris.”

& another point of view via Alpha, Branded - the next generation?  Hmmm   "Never trust a hippy, especially a rich one" ;-)

"6:00am 30th August 2017

A Scarborough Borough Councillor has raised concerns about the development of more static caravans at Primrose Valley in Filey.

Councillor Michelle Donohue-Moncrieff represents the Hertford ward which includes Primrose Valley and is unhappy about the proposals of 17 new static caravans being placed there by Haven Holidays. 

The development would also see the demolition of Habershon House, which was sold by Rotherham Council earlier this year after it decided to close the facility which had been used as a holiday centre by thousands of children from the Rotherham area since 1904. 

Councillor Donohue-Moncrieff said:

"This proposal would see the boundary of Primrose Valley Holiday Park moved right up to the road. 

This site currently acts as a buffer between the park and residential properties in the area. 

This caravan park is already one of the biggest in the country and these plans are unnecessary in terms of its sustainability.

While I accept that Haven do employ a lot of people from the area, it is unacceptable that local residents weren't consulted about the plans before they were submitted to Scarborough Borough Council. 

It is my understanding that some caravan owners near the proposed site are also unhappy with Haven's plans. 

In my experience, the residents have always been realistic about living near to a holiday park. 

Their concerns about this development are valid and should be not be ignored.  Haven should withdraw its plans and focus on the site it is already has approval for developing."

Ah, so ;-)
