I would be very, very shocked and so would the whole country if Lib Dems beat the Tory's. It's just not gonna happen imo. I voted Lib Dem though :lol:

It would be funny, and probably quite nice if LibDems did beat Labour :p

I voted for an independant candidate

If SelesFan is American, I think you will find their conservative party stand for slightly different principles than ours

I doubt very much if Lib Dems are within reaching distance of Labour. It's possible I guess but they are quite a way behind the Tories, never mind Labour.

I hope Labour wins and I think they probably will. Vote Lib Dem, get Howard (apparently ;))

Halardfan
May 5th, 2005, 09:33 PM
I agree...while I hope the Lib Dems have an improved showing its pretty much impossible they could be anywhere near Labour this time...

As a normally natural Labour voter who voted Lib Dem in the national poll (but stuck with Labour locally), the blame if things wrong for Labour should go to Mr Blair, with his stream of half-truths over Iraq, and his truly vomit inducing relationship with GW Bush.

Tories will be second. My sources tell me the Libs are only likely to pick up two seats :awww:

I saw Simon Baynes today (tory cadidate for my area) on the street. He walked up to me and Wyn and was all pushy asking who we were going to vote for. I said to him I'd rot in hell before giving you a tissue nevermind a vote. I felt bad after. oh well.

one of my sisters voted for libdems and my other sister voted for labour. i don't know much about british politics so i don't know who i hope wins. :D

Labour took sunderland south, a safe seat, but with less votes than last time :mad: .I hope they can still hold most of thier seats. :bounce:

I'm so excited (am I the only one watching live???) Anyways I voted today and I admit I voted for Conservative!!!!! I am not sure now whether they will win, and at th moment I do not regret my vote!

CondiLicious

Well, although it would be nice to pay less taxes (like the Tory's were offering) there's not a hope in hell's chance I'd ever vote for them. I remember what it was like before Labour rescued us in '97!!!

LOLOLOLOLOLOL! I don't think so ;) Saddam wouldn't do that.

Labour got in, Blair all over the TV. Both Tories and Libs gained seats, but, it wasnt enough :(

Labour won :(

I voted conservative - and the good news is that although they didn't win - they took a good number of seats from labour. In my consticuency - labour won by a margin of 2,000, and conservative's votes had risen whilst labour had dropped a lot. I voted for conservative :) :wavey:

Woah, my labour guy won by 307 votes. I feel proud :D

Cons manifesto promise was to PUT UP taxes from what they are now.

Thank GOD Labour won.

I'm still angry at the 5% who switched to Liberal Democrats.

Labour lost 47 seats, Cons gained 33, Lib dems gained 11.

I was hoping the Lib Dems would gain more... but at least the Conservatives aren't in power. Although I don't like Blair (quite the puppet) and I hope he steps down soon.

Halardfan
May 7th, 2005, 08:02 AM
The result was pretty much perfect...if the win had been bigger Blair might have been enboldend to carry on as arrogantly as before, if it had been smaller then the propest of the Tories winning next time would be frightning.

We gave him a kick up the arse, lets hope he takes the hint and steps down soon in favour of Brown.

I did take a risk switching from Labour to Lib Dem but it DID pay off.

Why :confused:

I'd never heard of him till yesterday on Have I Got News For You where he came across has a right twat cos Paxman didn't say what he wanted :tape:

Why's Howard standing down. And what will now happen to Kilroy :haha: :o

As much as I like Paxman, if anyone was the twat it was him for asking such an irrelevant question.

Howard is standing down because he says he is too old to lead the party into the next election. I was surprised to read he's 63!! :eek:

Funny thing is, everytime I switch on the telly news or read the papers, it always looks as if Bush, Blair, Howard and co. are unpopular and on the verge of a political meltdown because of the whole 'coalition of the willing' thingamajiggy. Yet they're the ones who are winning extra terms in office, thanks to the public (although I read somewhere that around 70% of the Brit public didn't even bother voting in this election...can someone clarify that?).

VSFan1 aka Joshua L.
May 8th, 2005, 03:42 PM
I think 70% did not vote for Blair because turnout was only like 55% and then Blair only won like 40% of that.

Pengwin
May 8th, 2005, 03:44 PM
I like George Galloway but I'm dissapointed that he ousted one of the very few Black women MPs in Oona King (Labour)

Pengwin

I think 70% did not vote for Blair because turnout was only like 55% and then Blair only won like 40% of that.

We don't have proportional representation.

Either way if we had a 2-party state like America Blair would have about 60%+ of the vote

dunno why he came down to London to become an MP
he'd been an Labour MP in Glasgow for ages
then the Iraq thingy ............

kudos to George
wish he'd actually gone head to head vs Puppet Blair in his seat.

He went to Bow because he doesn't give a shit about anything except himself and his career, and he knew that would be the best place to exploit racial tension to get in. Shame he kicked out a very good MP in the process.

He's a ****. :)

I just saw the clip where Paxman interviews(?) Galloway. Hilarious stuff. I don't know what's the problem with the interviewer. Does he drink on the job or something? Going on about the same question over and over again. Ridiculous.

Anyways, what's the racial stuff this politician was claimed to have exploited?
