I live in a safe Labour seat. I have no say.
Only voters in marginal seats have a say,
and they get to choose between two people
once every few years who also don't have any say.

or get expelled from their party]

That isn't democracy. I don't have any
desire to appoint an idiot to represent me, whose
primary attribute is 'popularity'. I'd rather
make decisions myself, or appoint a proxy of my choice.

I can do that with demexp project.
