    As labour party members in rl, do you support this; http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2009/ap...-driving-tests?

    My particular concern being:
    increase police powers to stop vehicles without suspecting an offence

    505 error.

    But no, the anti terror laws are a joke, infringement on civil liberties and all that jazz.

    Oops, but i got the part im most concerned about in.

    But you labour members seem to oppose a lot of labour policy and support a lot of lib dem policy.

    If it makes you feel any better Dayne I was a LibDem for a year. And if I'm still living here (please, God, no) at the time of the next GE I'll be voting for the incumbent LD lady (even if she is a little bit insane) over the Tory candidate, who in a situation of extreme lolz got taken to court for discriminating against a straight woman he employed. Even the gay Tories are prejudiced idiots :rolleyes:

    I don't really think I could bring myself to vote Labour at this point in time. It would be almost the same as saying I supported this Government =[

    I know what you mean. Labour have been terrible, and i cant imagine the tories being better, what with their lack of policy and all.

    A vote for the Lib Dems is, in most constituencies, a wasted vote. I'd prefer them over the Tories, but the best way to further a left wing agenda in this country is the Labour party.

    Dayne, Labour really haven't been terrible. 1997-2003 was very good, imo.

    Indeed they have been. It seems the list of labour acts that need to be repealed grows amazingly fast.

    But, as Al said, in many constituencies, the Lib Dems are so minor in comparison to the other two that a vote for them is a vote for the Tories.
