Question asked, question answered.  I mentioned no political party 
name.  No "party political propaganda points" at all.  My point in fact 
was that whether *any* party supports free and open source software 
would not sway my vote. 

What a typical British attitude.  Any mention of politics and it causes 
an immediate lock up.  Thank goodness no one mentioned religion!

(btw you seem to have replied to the digest - makes it quite hard to 
track the actual thread you were referring to.  Top posting didn't help 
that issue either)
