Why are people so supportive of UKIP here? I haven't really heard many of their policies apart from the EU and immigration? so can someone fill me in on what they actually believe in?

They aren't polling very well. And probably won't have a seat after the next election.

Either Labour or SNP... most likely Labour, although a Labour/SNP coalition would be an exciting prospect. Tories are just disgusting posh English ****ers. Guys look how much better Scotland is with a left-wing government - free university tuition, free prescriptions etc.
And you really think that those policies will continue should Scotland gain independence? The only reason those policies can be afforded are because of the massive subsidies Scotland receives from the central UK government.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to vote for Labour. None of the parties are perfect but I'm going to pick the lesser of two evils and I feel that the coalition hasn't really done much to help me out. They scrapped EMA, raised tuition fees, pushed all my exams to June, closed down some of the government-run charities around my area,(didn't directly affect me, but saw it affect others) who knows what else they'll do that'll end up causing a negative impact on my life and tbh it seems like it's just as hard as it was before to get a job so i'm really not convinced about either of them. Another five years? No thanks.
They scrapped EMA. Yep. Why? Because it was a ridiculous policy of handing out money to teenagers who didn't need it. I would have benefitted from it;all my older siblings did and it feels unfair. However this doesn't mean it shouldn't have been taken away,it means it should never have been introduced. Now, schools and colleges have bursary, for those who actually seriously need it,not to spend on clothes and phones.

Tuition fees: why should they be only £3k a year, they were ridiculously subsidised. Why is it the govts job to pay for adult education? Things needed to be cut,because of, yes, Labour.

Any government would have done these, don't blame the tories.

Think of all the negative policies Labour want: how about giving parents money so they only see their kids 2 hours per day? Churning out kids from the state education machine.

Just read the papers and you'll see how Labour is NOT your option.

UKIP, BNP in suits.
Utter nonsense. They may be right wing but they are in no sense of the word, fascist.

They claim to be a libertarian party, and while they are certainly more libertarian than the other parties they aren't libertarian enough in my opinion.
You can probably read some of their other policies on their website. I would only really considering voting for them because of their EU policy (leaving it!)

Conservative...

Labour are a bunch of pandering populist Marxists who want everyone on benefits and to punish people for doing well. Seriously though, not enough people have even a basic understanding of economics which could potentially destroy our country in the long run.

I'm 18 - if I get elected I'll be one of the youngest in the country. I'll be running in the Thurrock constituency in Essex. I've already fought a by-election in the ward and I'm on course to take it! It's all very exciting

Pretty impressive, but does that not mean you were under 18 when you stood before? Aha one of the swingiest constituencies isn't it, completely the opposite to my 27k majority one! Well good luck!

The fall of the Liberal Democrats is pretty typical of this country's political landscape.

They were caught between a rock and a hard place at the last election, chose to side with the Tories and have since had all the credibility they achieved in the last campaign ruined. The difference between their stature three years ago to now is unbelievable.

I'll probably vote Labour.

18's a very young age to be taking bribes and doing dirty deals. I fear for your sanity.

No no I haven't stood before. I stood on the LGC panel interviewing the candidate, and acted as the co-agent.

We were 76 votes away last time, and we made some clear errors; if those errors are fixed or mitigated this time, I should be able to take it!

Thank you
