    What evidence is there of such a deficit?

    And how would I go about accessing your signature?

    Vote Conservative!

    Here in the TSR General Election.

    If you want tax reforms that increase transparency and clamp down on tax avoidance, if you want to eliminate a £140bn deficit that the previous Labour-Liberal government left us with, if you want to invest in 1,000,000 council homes over the next 10 years as well as remove stamp duty and decrease the burden of tax that the working classes have on their shoulders then click the link above and place your vote

    Do you know how long after the election you might start drafting these ideas?

    I could not say for certain but I would suggest within a month depending on if we are in government or not.

    OK thanks. Sorry, I kept on trying to quote you in the liberal thread but it didn't work. I'll tag you in there for my next question if that's alright.

    The deficit sits at about £100bn with a further 40bn or so blocked, about half an half liberal and labour commitments, the liberal portion of it of they get their way in the next parliament would be increased from about 20 to about 25bn before considering other commitments that are all lower taxes or higher spending

    You sound suitably unimpressed. Might I suggest you vote socialist for an active left-wing party with high output in both volume and quality?

    Hahaha no I was genuinely thanking him thanks for the consideration. Tbh I'd never think I'd vote for a left-wing party but I like to keep an open mind. Maybe I should head down to the socialist party thread?

    Ah, never mind, I assumed that you were a leftist based on being interested in Labour and the Greens. I just recommend you read the manifestos and vote based on them.

    Sorry, I'd made an error in my last post - I was meant to say that I wouldn't vote for right wing. Regardless, the conservatives do appear to have done well. Do you mind if a ask a couple of questions in the conservative party thread?

    Ah gosh this is embarrassing. I mean I'd never vote for a right wing party - I'd definitely support the left wings.

    Just as I heads up, lime is former labour who claims to have converted to conservatism but would certainly not fit the Tory mantra and would be in the Conservative / Lib Dem overlap

    It's traditional conservatism, I support a free market but a strong government also. Not a fan of the wishy washy liberal stuff, it's not very pragmatic and even though it sounds cool, it's just stupid.

    When you shifted right along the political compass, was it a gradual shift or did it happen in quite a short space of time?
