Sporting events are pretty dull unless you have someone to cheer for. Similarly election campaigns -- having a bias makes it interesting. Watching the results roll in as a disinterested observer would be boring. But even choosing a favourite party...

Voter's guide: the kooks, crackpots, and true believers

For the last two months we've heard plenty from the major parties, but very little from the fringes. And for good reason: these people are nuts. But if you're going to consider yourself an informed voter, you owe it to...
