In the aftermath of #GE2015, I am developing an urge to move to Scotland. http://commonspace.scot/articles/1220/snp-rules-out-support-for-controversial-element-of-ttip-deal

TTIP is a "red line" for me. Of the parties I can vote for, only the Green Party fully opposes it http://www.waronwant.org/news/latest-news/18306-ttip-where-the-parties-stand
The 2015 General Election is just around the corner, and the party manifestos are out. We have collected together their policies on TTIP for ease of comparison, plus links to the manifestos themselves. In the order they were published...

Ambiguity abounds! Easy to vote for more Tory cuts if you don't think they'll affect you. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-32430708 - Are we in it together?
The economic choice confronting voters is the starkest since 1992. That is the assessment of the Institute for Fiscal Studies of the main parties' deficit reduction plans.

The Write API for Google+ is only available to a select few partners and closed to everyone else.
+Friends+Me​ is the most viable solution for you.

So, I've now actually run into a little problem that tbh I've spent time in excess of what I should have on trying to get around. So I've gone and joined Stack Overflow... let's see where this goes then.

Hmm. My #GE2015 options: vote Green and for what I believe in, or vote tactically out of fear of a Tory government http://vfp.me/yX7MeQXtr6ys3uqu

The way I see it: my vote isn't going to swing things one way or the other but if I vote for a party like the Greens (and enough others do) then it signals to them that they might have success in future years targeting my constituency. In the 2005 general election the Greens polled 3rd: that was enough to give more voters confidence in electing them in 2010. The same can happen elsewhere.

Really though, acting alone, a vote is a mostly symbolic act.

When it comes to write-once, post-everywhere, maybe I've gone about this the wrong way. Trying G+ ➙ Twitter ➙ Facebook, via ManageFlitter

So after some time away from social networks, I'm feeling like giving Google+ another go.

This is partly motivated by the ~99+ Facebook status update notifcations I see everyday because I just don't have that much time to spend on Facebook. Sure, I Like lots of pages but that doesn't necessarily mean I want to get a notification for every single new post they make. Maybe if they implement threaded notifications to group them by originator then it might be more manageable.

On one hand, Chris Messina is right but on the other hand, the posts I see here on Google+ are on the whole a lot more relevant than on Facebook. So let's see how it goes... http://mashable.com/2014/12/01/google-plus-adrift/

I very rarely go to any, but I couldn't afford it when I bought my ticket and I'd have been chancing it closer to the event.
