    Conservative, because I agree with the majority of the ideology, same with their policies. However, I do feel that the tables will turn and Labour will win come next election.

    The National Health Action party

    I'm tired of all the lying and bull**** peddling of the main parties.

    Labour...haha just no. Labour have done nothing but deride the coalition's plans and ideas without bothering once to contribute their own suggestions of how to get the country going in the right direction- they're interested only in being in power, not doing something useful.

    Lib Dems- tuition fee betrayal is unforgivable, spineless, spineless party.

    UKIP are obsessed with race their website describes them as 'Libertarian and non-racist' they keep making references to race, creed and colour. It's all a bit suspicious.

    And finally we come to the Tories. I voted Tory in the last election and I'd been relatively pleased with how things were progressing...until they came up with that God forsaken Health and Social Care bill. Their manifesto promised no top down reorganisation of the NHS. What the NHS is getting is the largest restructuring since its creation. Private health care firms are set to get billions of taxpayers money and many Tory MPs have financial interests in said health care firms.
    The Tory destruction of the NHS is the most underreported travesty in our national history- how people can get outraged about a 2.5% tax on pasties but not about the carving up of the NHS is beyond me.


    So yeah, I know they won't get a seat, but the NHA party is the only one I a) trust and b) has people's, rather than their own, interests at heart.

    Who would you vote for?
    I'm not sure as Labour don't really appear to have a plan or at least a couple of lines on a scrap of paper as to what they would do if they were elected, the Conservatives have actually harmed the economy and have basically lied about when austerity would be over. I also dislike Ed and David so in terms of leaders, I'd vote for neither and the Liberal Democrats are out of the question.

    I'd most likely vote independent. I will be honest in saying should Blair come back, he'd get my vote as the Labour party will be more centre than it is currently.

    Depending on the result of the independence vote(crazy to think I might not actually be able to vote in this election), the current plan would be for me to vote for the SNP in 2015.


    Now, this is certainly NOT because I support the SNP and certainly NOT because I support independence, however, at the moment, I don't trust the Labour party and whilst I feel the coalition has some real faults, they have been far better in government than Labour were.

    Now in my seat it's probably going to be a Labour/SNP marginal, so if the SNP can win the seat it reduces the overall chance of a Labour government.

    If I end up voting for my seat at uni, it was supposed to be a 4 way marginal in 2010 but ended up being safe Labour due to Alastair Darling's personal vote. Now, if the constituency still exists in 2015 it means Scotland has rejected independence and means Darling must be incredibly popular, so I would probably just vote for the Conservatives anyway in that seat.

    I'm Jewish and my family comes from Poland just like Miliband. On top of that I'm left of centre. I'm looking forward to the Labour majority in 2015.

    As things stand I'll be voting Tory in 2015; although at present can't see anything else other than a Labour majority win.

    If David Milliband was leading labour I think it would be a good vicotry. Altough I may disagree with some of labour's policy I think David Milliband was the best politician (job) in the commons, very agreeable and smart person.

    I don't quite get British politics and your version of the word 'liberal'. In Germany if you declare yourself a 'liberal' that means you support liberty meaning small government. It is usually an apolitical person as well, not left or right wing individual, just one who supports liberty: be it social or economic.

    In the UK liberal tends to be associated with left wing person in social affairs like pro civil liberties and individual rights - but those two can be championed by both: right and left so wtf? Economic liberal tends to be wrongly associated with Barack Obama, Clinton or JFK, whereas economic liberals were in reality Thatcher and Reagan etc.

    LibDems seem to be very central having all those species inside of their party ranging from leftists and statists to free-market people.

    Well I would probably vote for Labour or Green.

    This is so weird - I was literally just thinking of starting a discussion on this when I found this thread!

    I would vote labour - although I don't much like Ed Miliband, I do agree with a lot of labour's policies. Unfortunately though I suspect it will be a Tory government again.

    My second choice would be Lib Dem.
    Tory Government again?! There has been no Tory Government since 1997.
    Labour win outright, if they don't you can quote me.

    You shouldn't vote for someone because of their ethnicity, or include it in your reasons. He isn't even religious.

    I think such considerations have their place in an electoral decision process.

    Although the Tories aren't technically in at the moment, it's David Cameron the Tory leader that is the prime minister so that's what I meant

    I REALLY hope you are right! I will certainly be voting them....

    Labour, Lib Dems and the Conservatives (under Cameron) are now barely distinguishable from one another, three cheeks of the same arse, swapping cosmetic speeches back and forth in a bid to maintain their cosy metropolitan cabal.

    Collectively they have ensured total apathy towards politics and politicians from the voting public (and believe me they like it that way), who by and large feel disenfranchised by and alienated from the ruling class who are no longer representing the desires of the electorate.

    I'll therefore be voting at every opportunity for the only party engaging with the British public at large and offering policy solutions to their concerns, moreover the only party who will bring the UK out of the European Union and put an end to mass open door immigration, the UKIP.
