Vote Green or whatever, but more important, tell your M(E)P that you're not voting for them any more, and why (in a fax, or preferably a written letter).
MPs often have small majorities - perhaps only a few thousand votes the other way and they're out. If they get a letter from one person, chances are that dozens of other people are thinking exactly the same thing but just don't bother to write. So if they get just a hundred letters then that could reflect enough votes to oust them.
