Vote for Policies - or what?

I was aiming to keep off electioneering.

But then BBC Points West kicked off its general election coverage this evening with a particularly silly piece, inviting new voters (their 'sample' was 100% university students) into a blindfold test of policy preferences - offering only the policies of Labour, LibDem and Tory.

If they're really into finding out whose policies voters actually prefer, before the choice is hijacked by the need for tactical voting under 'first past the post', or the X-Factor media hype surrounding the relative popularity of Brown, Cameron, and that other bloke... they might care to look at the independent website
