    There are a few red tories in government, Gove is probably left of Cameron, as Ruth Davidson, IDS and BoJo probably are too. Heidi Allen is someone I admire so greatly though, that I think she would make an excellent leader one day.
    There's nothing moderate about IDS, he's a horribly incompetent man.

    I actually am voting in a somewhat important election -- the Welsh Assembly election -- in a few weeks' time. :holmes: Will probably vote for the Liberal Democrat candidate in my constituency, more as a vote against Labour than anything, but I'm undecided on who to vote for using the second vote, which is used to allocate a third of the seats proportionally.
    Welsh elections look interesting although skewed at the constituency level by Ukip being nowhere in 2011. It looks like Plaid and the Tories will pick up any marginals they have with Labour based on polling and a universal swing.

    I support Sanders too.
    Why Sanders over say Kasich?

    (Original post by Hydeman)
    I'm neither a Liberal nor a Tory, although I'm probably closer to the former. I've no party affiliation. As I said, I'm voting for the Liberal Democrat candidate in my constituency mainly as a vote against Labour (Assembly constituencies elect members using FPTP) rather than to express any actual allegiance to the Lib Dem cause.

    As far as Clinton and the 2016 Republican candidates are concerned, I think that it's fairly self-evident to anyone who knows me why I don't support any of them.

    You're not the first left-wing person on TSR to mistake me for a Tory, either. :holmes:
    In fairness i had you pegged as right of center too.

    Depends on the candidate. I'd be quite happy voting for a tory that I liked- e.g Dominic Grieve. If I had no way of knowing then- labour or lib dem (Which ever had the greatest chance of winning.)

    Boris is way to the right of Cameron. IDS a loopy, incompetent. Both are scheming opportunists that make Cameron look principled in comparison.

    Any votes after 11:45 have NOT been counted. If you would like to see the info thing I've created, please message me.

    I will release it onto the forum after the TSR election has ended and we are awaiting the results.

    Please bear in mind I am not a statistician or a political scientist, so take the info thing with a pinch of salt.

    Aye. If I lived in a lib dem- tory marginal I would vote lib dem, if I lived in Brighton, green, otherwise probably labour.

    What do you make of UKIP's stance on climate change, given that you're a chemical physicist? :holmes:

    3/4s of waste is not recycled on the Green controlled Brighton council.

    SNP, since the Smith Comission has not been delivered in full and I'm currently satisfied with their governance. Although I would like to see a plan of higher taxes in the future to fund our public services, a promise to ban fracking after the momuratium and clarification of the £10 billion pound trade deal with China.

    Jesus.

    I thought they were useless but I didn't know they were beyond saving

    In fairness even if they did get their act together, nobody really listens to their leader. She could walk around Parliament naked and nobody would notice.
