Despite election commitments, the current government is imposing huge austerity on middle and low income families and attacking public services.
The super-rich are not paying their fair share of taxation and middle and low income tax payers are effectively subsidising them.
In these current circumstances, it is particularly inappropriate to fill a largely ceremonial and expensive office.
I had hoped to support a candidate who would espouse such a position. In addition, I had hoped that the presidential election could be treated as an opportunity to challenge austerity and the EU/IMF deal in an effective referendum.
As no such candidate is seeking election, I have decided that I will not nominate or support any candidate.
