    I don't particularly like labour, but I hate conservatives and like lib dems. I'm glad it's a hung parliament, cos there's a chance of a lib-lab coalition, so lib dems will get more of a say.

    Mmm, I'd say a Lib-Con partnership (or even going as far as a formal coalition) is looking much more likely. Brown basically pleaded for Clegg to side with him so he could stay in power, whereas Cameron offers to work with Clegg, flexible on some policies but staying strong on his core ones. Which seems fair enough.
    I still think it's ironic that as the weakest party leader of the three, Clegg actually has a lot of power at the moment.

    You can choose, I think. Well, my boyfriend did.

    My area is still Conservative, as always. Lib Dem did give them a good run for their money though. I don't particularly like the Conservatives (I agree with some of their policies, but disagree with many more and frankly prefer the Lib Dems policies by far) but I won't go into it too much, I've had enough arguments about politics recently. However, I am very happy with a Con-Lib partnership, I'm loving the amount of power Clegg has, really.

    Unless Torys agree to political reform, i would think it's unlikely that Clegg would form a coalition with them. (I'd hope so anyway)
    I don't agree with fox hunting, although I think EMA should be scrapped, and I think Cameron's plans for tackling immigration aren't logical. I don't think they can simply put a 'cap' on immigration, and I much prefer lib dems idea of limiting people coming in to those that have particular skills and only into certain areas.
    I also don't trust David Cameron, I'm not sure what it is about him, I just don't. And on the 3rd election debate Brown and Clegg were contesting his taxing system, about him helping the 'double millionaires', he had no answer it.
    Why do a lot of farmers prefer torys? What support do they offer?

    i can't see that anyone has said that they hate the conservatives. i think, as with anything, it's about people favouring other parties and their policies, which everyone has the right to do (whatever their reasons for doing so).

    no farming no food-I want taht bumper sticker

    We can't afford the competing armies of rural bureaucrats that have been recruited under Labour.

    that link is the reason why I vote conservatives, labour do not support us at all, and for you who want to be farm vets you should take it into account!

    but like the welsh say "pawb ai farn" - everybody to their opinions

    + this.
    taxing the poor and giving tax breaks to the richest hardly helps their image of being a party for the upper classes.

    but like i said policies of any party appeal to people depending on their own personal situation.

    Yes, I agree with Emma. My dad voted Conservative because he is disillusioned with Labour and hates getting taxed so much (40%!). But, as a student, I am in a different position and I much prefer Lib Dems policies, and they are putting more funding into science, which I think we really need to do. I don't agree with scrapping tuition fees, but I don't think they should be increased and I definitely don't think individual universities should be given control. No party is perfect, they all have their good points and bad points, which is why I think a partnership/coalition will be a good thing.

    Well I spent the whole day at school watching the election coverage in lessons, I am getting so into this it is really exciting! I voted Lib Dem, but it was a toss up between them and voting Tory. In the end I went for Lib Dem because I really like Clegg and I wanted free Uni education! But ah well, I am in Theresa May's constituency and there was NO way she was going to lose that. Us and Henley are the two safest Tory seats in the country! Reading West went Conservative though, which is really interesting as it has been very pro Labour for a long time.

    I seriously think that although having a Hung Parliament may not be the best outcome, it is pretty exciting for us as (mostly) first time voters!
