UK General Election

I just thought to start this thread, cos I live in the UK, and all that is on tv and in the newspapers atm i about the General Election

Anyway, I don't get to vote so I guess it doesn't really matter who I support (but if I could vote, I'd vote Lib Dem) but what does everyone think? And if you're voting, who you vote for (if you don't mind to say, of course! )

I won't vote because even though I'm a British citizen, I don't pay taxes in the UK, so I don't think it would be ethical to cast a vote on how other people's money should be spent. If I were to vote, it would definitely be Lib Dem because I agree with almost all their central beliefs. I hope very much that they do well.

I will be voting Lib Dem i think as will most people i know here at uni.I think anyway.

Someone said befor whats the point in voting? for 1 thing to make sure the conservatives never get back into the government and 2 to make sure Labour don't just do what they want.Lower their majority and they will have to tow the line a bit more.

The reason i'm going Lib Dem is because as someone said before they stand for most of my political beliefs. Strong views on the environment are willing to increase taxes in order to make schools,NHS even better9 i do think Labour have improved these though) pro europe. Not anti immigration. and of course will abolish top up fees.

Im instinctively a Labour supporter and if one could just edit out the business of Iraq I would say that Labour have done a rather good job...

Sadly, the image of Blair's mutual admiration society with the loathsome GW Bush is so burned into my memory, that for the first time at a general election, I plan to vote Lib Dem.

Though if people live in a seat where its close between Labour and the Conservatives, I urge you to vote Labour....

Whatever our disappointment with Labour, rest assured that the Tories would be far far worse.

It's amazing how a lot of people still won't vote Tory because of Maggie Thatcher. The effect her Government had on a lot of northern cities like Glasgow and Liverpool in particular means she is still hated there. I don't think the Tories even have a seat in Scotland anymore.

As long as the Conservatives don't get anywhere near the other side of the house, I am happy If when voting Liberal Democrats the chances of Tories not getting in didn't rise I would do so, but my constituency is too close to call between SNP and Tories, so I shall definately be posting for Annabelle Ewing's SNP

Labour and especially Lib Dems are no where near the other two, and if the Tories get back in then I shall have to move. Plus, Annabelle lives in my village

I guess i'm the only guy here who would vote for the conservatives. Lib democrats are the worst in my theory. But fortunately they won't win. Hopefully many of the labor electors will be split and will vote either for labor party or lib democrats lie you guys & conservatives will win. But of course many of you like me are not even British
In my opinion modern Britain has had 3 great leaders: Churchill, Thatcher & Blair. Churchill: there are too many good things to say about him. Thatcher: she helped weaken the labor unions and was tough on communism. Blair: Has helped Britain economically. In other words, I won't cry if Howard loses the elections.
