    And neither the Lib Dems nor greens want the lords

    Whilst the Lib Dems have certainly floated the idea of abolishing the Lords, I think the hen real consensus in the party has been for the second chamber to become elected by PR rather than abolished.

    Which is abolishing the lords. The lords is the lords due to its appointed nature, to me a transition to a senate IS abolishing the lords; an outright replacement rather than modification.

    I know , but no party really seems to, even the Conservatives backed reform .

    I am normally very conflicted about voting choices, but I tend to favour smaller parties because I think we should have more coalitions and a more consensus based politics.

    The tories have never backed "reform"

    So you don't actually want a party that will preserve the lords?

    It will be my first time voting, but I'm pretty sure I will end up voting for the Lib Dems. If Labour gets rid of Corbyn and a more centre left/centre candidate takes over, I might consider voting for them.

    Conservatives or UKIP if labour don't recover and UKIP look to be gaining seats, which at the present looks almost a certainty. If the conservatives get more socially conservative and toughen up on immigration I will be happy to vote them in but I want no more of this all about the markets rubbish which goes hand in hand with open borders and freedom of movement. Cons and labour need to both go back to their roots

    Hm perhaps, but the Lib Dems didn't help either. I find it ironic how people dislike them for "jumping into bed with the Tories", yet a lot of Lib Dem constituencies were lost to the Tories.

    I am lib dem, generally. Probably would be green but I'm not comfortable with how anti-science they come across sometimes

    We need to go back to traditional conservative values- focus on the markets within reason but promote traditional family values such as marriage, getting on the property ladder, childbirth (2.5 kids etc), private education, respect and deference, sense of national pride and duty.....all this has been eroded by external forces and spineless parenting

    I am a floating voter who would be unlikely to consider voting for either of the two main parties in normal circumstances. I might vote LibDem simply because I would like to see a coalition, or Green simply because I'm an environmentalist. There is no party that I truly identify with.

    I would probably look carefully at the manifestos of all the parties before coming to a decision (though never BNP, Communist etc).

    A party committed to retaining the Lords would score highly in my opinion.
    Political parties have never and will never appeal to everything a person wants you make your choice of party on your own criteria.

    For instance now the referendum is done my main priority in infrastructure spending and building lots of houses

    I'd go along with much of that. I think a good family lifestyle should be much easier to achieve

    I'll force myself to still vote Labour despite having no confidence in them, although it's pointless voting as I live in safe Tory seat and hate the Tories.
    It's pointless voting even if you are in a marginal since the chances of it being won by a single vote are huge and even if it was there'd be a recount and there'd bound to be a few other votes 'found'.

    And anyway that one seat probably wouldn't decide the election.

    Frankly I'm amazed anyone ever bothers.

    Just sayin.
