I don't know if you remember me from the old days of JSG and the Today boards, but I'm SWL - Alan Wallace.
I'm basically here begging for some help. I've become so pissed off with politics and politicians that I've decided to stand as an independent for the Euro elections with Jury Team. My basic position is I'm an ordinary working bloke and I'm going to embarass them by doing what they should be doing. As a salesman for the last 6 years, I've had to keep a daily record of where I've been, who I've met and what I've done. MPs should do the same. I plan (if elected - ha!) to publish a monthly schedule in advance online showing what meetings I'm due to attend and with who. Members of the public will be able to post questions for me to ask on their behalf. For example, if I'm meeting a power company guy, people can post "Ask him about this" or "Find out about that". This does two things. Firstly, everybody gets the chance to ask questions of these bastards and secondly, if I don't come back and say what happened at the meeting, the whole world will see I'm a lazy git.
I need help though. Position on the candidate list is by public text vote. I'm 2nd (by 2 votes) at the moment, but to have any chance under PR I need to be first. My main rivals are a taxi driver and two tree huggers. I've been out doorstepping, contacting friends, flooding the message boards, but I need every vote I can get.
Can you help in any way?

Over to our readers..........
(From his CV)
It's time to have a government of people, not a people governed.
I'm AGAINST further expansion of the EU.
I'm AGAINST more powers being usurped from national governments by the EU.
I STRONGLY SUPPORT referendums in every country on the Lisbon Treaty.
I am AGAINST a European Army
I STRONGLY SUPPORT proposals to limit immigration into Europe and would actively campaign to see that other countries honoured their obligations instead of turning a blind eye to immigrants being trafficked to the UK.
Like most people I have been sickened and disgusted by the antics of politicians and parties over the years. People like Balls & Milliband are professional toadies who have never done a day's work in their lives. And there are far too many of their type. People who go to university then get a job as a researcher before being parachuted into a safe seat or manipulating women-only lists or playing the race card. I've worked for all but two weeks in the 26 years since I left school. I've served in the Forces and done almost every type of work imaginable. I'm not looking to get on the gravy train either. Every month a full list of my expenses will be listed and accounted for on the internet. Everything from a cup of coffee to plane fares.
