Most likely Labour. I approve of an elected House of Lords (Senate) and I feel if the Conservatives won outright it would further break up the UK in the sense that they seem rather careless to people up North.. Of course this depends on whether Miliband and Harman move out the way for decent politicians & they get their heads out their arses on the EU.

&Furthermore the Conservatives don't get it that the majority of Britain don't want the NHS privatised though the back doors.. Eric Pickles on question time thought that it was a matter of providing good service (due to the NHS supposedly having a budget deficit of 30bn by 2020)... Why not tax the rich a bit more, place a benefits cap on people and seek the tax owed by hundreds of companies!

As you can see, I'm not really politically savvy even slightly; everyone just keeps telling me it's not a good idea for me not to vote. But in my opinion there's no point in someone like me voting.
Well the first question is more whether you'd prefer government spent less and reduced taxes or tax more, but have uber public services.

Market over government suggests your not a commie.

Should government use taxpayers money to subsidise energy bills for example (i.e make them cheaper than they should be but tax people to do so).

Yeah, i should have picked a higher wage but it sounds like you reject the labour theory of value and are probably not a Marxist.

..

No worries about being savvy, it's just about finding where you sit.

At this stage, Labour has my vote. I'm open to persuasion, but I don't think it's likely my vote will change.

Which is why public spending as a percentage of GDP is going down by a few percent per year?
Which is why spending has been consistent/going down during this government in real terms?
Which doesn't change that you're claim was VERY VERY far from correct.
So it's ok to spend 'horrendously' if businesses work harder?

What would you say to John Redwood? He doesn't seem to have got the Tory message yet.

Greens since their Leader in Northern Ireland is a nice guy (I have spoken to him a few times) and I am not voting for the DUP or UUP since they are dicks and neither Sinn Fein or the SDLP since just meh.

I live in a what will be a tory-labour marginal, so labour. If I wasn't in a marginal then it would probably be the greens if they stood in my constituency.

I will be supporting the Conservatives to have an absolute majority. This government is doing a good job for all the areas that are important to me and I see no reason for a change at this moment in time.

Either way when in UK I live in the area where the PM is MP so there really isn't much of a chance of a change.

Don't know. I mostly care about environment issues and no party will deliver on those. Cameron's "greenest government ever" promise was a complete lie and Labour sing from the same hymn sheet on things like HS2 and relaxed planning laws.

Even the greens have problems with their environment policies. e.g. Their proposed ban on shooting, an entirely sustainable activity. They have other policies, like wanting to give prisoners the vote. So I can't really vote for them either.

I just don't trust any of the parties out there at the moment. The leaders are all slimy cockwombles who'll say anything if they think it'll get themselves elected, but won't act on it if they are voted in. The green party is an exception as at least they seem more principled than the other parties, even if I do disagree with some policies.

Can't trust Labour with the economy.
Can't trust the Tories with the justice system.
Can't trust the Lib Dems with anything.

If the Liberal party stand a candidate in my area I will vote for them.

How are the Conservatives addressing the horrendous public spending created by Labour when they're running up public debt like drunk socialists on amphetamines?

Do you really believe they'll hold a referendum? If the party wants its referendum pledge to be taken seriously it could start by holding off on opting in to the European Arrest Warrant at the very least.

The party line is not to be anti Europe, its merely the promise of a referendum, which they will have to keep to or be massacred in 2020.

And what they are conducting the most severe cuts since the war (you can argue whether this is economically a good thing or not)

I'll probably end up spoiling my ballot with some angsty diatribe because the conservatives hate the justice system, labour suck at economics and the lib dems sold out.

A vote for Labour/Con is a vote for genocidal Zionists and their New World Order.
Don't agree with your terminology but Labour backed Palestine recently.

What about the Greens? I think most people recognise them as a pretty legit party in terms of policy these days and they're hoping to win a few seats, so will actually have some power.
