    Labour, so I don't have to pay £9,000 per year for university -.-

    Plus I think the last election was more about people disliking Brown than really understanding the politics behind it. But hey, haters gonna hate :P

    Labour, to keep the Tories away from the NHS.

    Other than that, though, I don't really care. Labour introduced tuition fees before the coalition government raised them, so I don't really see the logic of that argument. They'll probably raise them again in the next 20 years, anyway.

    It's not like there's actually a difference between any of them. I'm not a conspiracy theorist - it's quite visibly evident that special interests control all policy of import while politicians are left minutiae that affects nothing to argue about to create the illusion of choice.

    Conservative. The benefits culture of this country is disgusting and labour won't do anything about it...

    EDIT: Also, the thought of having Ed Miliband at the wheel of the country sends shivers down my spine...

    For the lols? Why shouldn't Plaid be in power? Or do you mean in Westminster? In that case, major lols would be had indeed.

    You will still have to be £6k and increase interest rates on graduates that earn more than £65k.

    Conservative for Westminister, SNP for Hollyrood (I'd vote no in an independence referendum but yes to 'Devolution Max')

    I would, but I've had a look at the bit of history before the industrial revolution, and it seems like a pretty crappy place to live.

    UKIP Nigel farrage would.make a great pm, plus I disagree with the UK being in Europe and would prefer education and the NHS not be privatised!

    Completely agree. Although tactical voting is not something I'm happy about, it is the only way to keep the Tories from making more cuts :/ I can't believe some people seem to have forgotten about what a pile of crap the last Conservative government landed us in (especially in Scotland)

    The SNP is not a party that I would originally vote for but they certainly have been doing a better job in Scotland than any other party. No tuition fees, no prescription costs, they reopened Monklands hospital.etc Devolution is very tricky area but right now, I think Scotland's doing better than the rest of the UK in terms of education and health care...

    I don't think any party is ideal, simply because at the end of the day, they are all playing the game, which is to win our votes. It's not 100% about doing the best things, speaking what they actually think and being individuals, it's a political game.

    Politicians lie, they don't speak their minds, they don't admit weakness, they blame other MPs over any bad decision or argument like hypocrites, they don't answer difficult questions truthfully/with a straight answer, they just try to appeal to the people by not stepping over any lines and saying buzzwords.

    I'll end the rant there

    UKIP.

    Firsty I'm anti-EU, but also I agree with the majority of their other policies nowadays.

    Farage is charismatic and a good orator, he doesn't seem like someone who would go back on his word like Clegg.

    All this talk about them being racist and fascist is just pure ignorance. I invite anyone to point out a racist or fascist policy!

    I can't stand Labour, mainly because of Miliband. I'd be embarrassed to call him PM. He looks and sounds like a geeky student. Imagine him stood on the world stage with the likes of Obama.
