    In this recent economic downturn Britain has been at the mercy of rich city bankers simply gambling millions of pounds of tax payers money. Yet Britain has also become victim to a severe lack of political leadership; in the form of Gordon Brown.

    The past decade has seen the disintegration of social values, such as the close family, into a society which is fragmented into sub-divisions of class, racial and religious hatred.

    This needs to be solved, and fast, if Britain is going to lead the way among key global powers such as the USA, India and China. We are being held back by the very person that leads our country, and the irony is, we never voted him into power!

    Well Cameron is a right idiot and the most obvious example is that his policy on marriages is completely flawed and if any of you saw Sky News this morning you would have heard one brilliant argument whereby Cameron (Who wasn't present I should note) was made to look like a fool! Hahaha!
    And for those anit-Labour individuals, it really isn't easy to get out of a recession so maybe you should give him a break, I'm not a huge fan of Brown but at least he isn't as sly and cunning as Cameron.

    No idea why you would vote labour, considering the huge mess they've made of this country. I don't like David Cameron much better but at least he'll be doing things differently.

    Anyone who votes Labour at the next general election is a stupid narrow minded fool with no social, political or moral knowledge who likes a lowest common denominator system of oppression.

    I shudder to think why anyone, especially of a student age, would want to vote for a party that wants everyone to have to carry around biometric I.D. cards, is for random stop searches of any person without reason, and "will go a long way in taking away civil liberties in order to preserve the greatest one: not to be blown up by a bomb :rolleyes: Honestly, if you vote for these guys, you must be missing a few brain cells.

    Last G20 country out of the recession. Hardly a big achievement.

    People vote Labour because they don't understand economics.

    That's because the other countries in the G20 have huge manufacturing industries based in their countries. While the UK is a financial service run economy. Where does this go back to? This goes back to when Margaret Thatcher screwed up our manufacturing industry. We should have been reliant on it and it affects us still today.

    People vote Labour since there is no clear better alternative.

    People are outraged how the system is running at the moment, however what people don't realise is how good they have got it right now.

    I think David Cameron's recent claims of declining social morals is laughable.

    He was talking about those two young boys who have been jailed for abusing and torturing a child. He blames it on the government and the moral decline of the nation.

    But Jamie Buldger was killed during a conservative government?

    I hardly think the GLOBAL economic recession can be blamed on a labour government, and I think it's interesting that most countries have suffered the same if not worse as us, yet there people aren't complaining as much as us.

    The conservatives are a laughable party right now, David Cameron is just ridiculous and PR mad. He staged interviews with the public in Fleetwood where he answered questions, and when someone asked something about a tax break for the poorest he simply looked at the producer and the producer shouted "NEXT QUESTION"

    I think the televised debate should be really interesting in swinging voters will start to take sides.

    Basically hatred for labour is slowly being replaced, replaced with hatred for conservatives.

    I just look at george osbourne and want to punch him. How can anybody be that smarmy, let alone a whole cabinet.

    Personally, I'll be voting Labour because I agree with a lot of what they've done over recent years, particularly with regards to university and to this country's youth population.

    I don't agree with everything, certainly not. In fact, some of their actions/policies I hate; but they're the best of the lot currently, as far as I'm concerned.

    Are you joking? While it is still not a perfect world, it is MUCH better to be a minority in Britain today than in 1997, or even 2000. How many race riots are there compared to the 70s or 80s?

    Well we don't vote any Prime Ministers into power; we vote in parties. When will people understand this?

    People will vote for Labour because they still believe in the core value of the party; social justice. No other major party genuinely has that as their goal.

    People vote for labour because they are jealous of people that are more succesful than they are. Everyone hates the winners in life, those who work hard, create jobs and create wealth. What a ****** up country we live in.

    I've love to see you justify this. Labour's response to the recession has been very effective. Considering how exposed we are to financial crises given our large financial services sector, its pretty damn impressive that the UK economy is predicted by Goldman Sachs to grow by 3.4% next year - 1% more than the US and 1.5% more than Europe. In both the 1980/82 and 91/92 recessions under the Tories, it took 13 quarters for the economy to return to growth.

    Compare employment trends with those in the last two recessions under the Tories. In the last two recessions, unemployment continued to rise for much, much longer than it did in this recession - unemployment peaked in 1984 and 1993 at 11.9% and 10.7% respectively. In this recession, unemployment has peaked at 7.9% and is already dropping - you'd barely know its a lagging indicator. Its hard to put that down to anything but government intervention.

    Quite honestly, I hate them both. Neither will improve our country in any way. I wouldn't vote for either of them, but if I had to choose I would pick Conservative, since we need to shake things up and have a break from Labour. Doubtless in a few years time I will be saying the same thing about the Conservatives.

    Gordon Brown quite frankly is an idiot, he has no idea what he is doing. David Cameron is smarmy and slimy and will say whatever you want to hear (just like Obama with 'change!' - what change).
