Maybe we should set Gordon Strachan up as leader of a party?
GS is a legend. I saw him the the other day walking through the town centre with his wife.

Kennedy is not prime-ministerial material.

Saying that, George Bush doesn't do much for that statement as the most powerful man in the world.

Of all the parties the lib dems are the only ones that haven't let us down yet, but maybe that's because they haven't had a chance to.
I think they try to please everyone too much though - they say what they think the people want to hear not what they believe should be done or even have much intention of inforcing. Talking about the legalisation of cannabis to students as someone mentioned before is one example of them trying to impress students bu saying something which they think appeals to them and will win them votes. I don't believe they said this because they actually think leagalising cannabiw would be the best option.
Every time the government in power does something contrversial which the public object to the lib debs convieniently adoptt a contrasting and staying true to their name more liberal view on that matter.
I think timeofyourlife is right. Charles Kennedy may appear the most trustworthy but I don't think he quite has what it takes to be prime minister. The problem is I think we have a lack of people who do. Tony Blair may have contraversial views and have introducted contraversial policies but I think he has more credibility as a prime minister than Kennedy. He's like some teachers who try to hard to gain respect from the students by giving them too much freedom and not making them work but thus end up being bad teachers.

And it doesn't take a downing street resident to work out the correlation between cannabis use and students. He makes policies for all the wrong reasons. However, people are voting for him as there is no decent alternative.

Yep, most of his votes are probably from those who don't like labour's current policies or tony blairs leadership but who won't vote conservative on a matter of principal, or vise-versa. People who dont agree with labour or cons but who feel that they should vote just vote for them as an alternative, not because they agree with their policies. If it was different party there then they would just vote for them instead. I think if the lib dems actually got into power a lot of people would regret voting for them. I just can't imagine Kennedy in world summits with george bush and co for some reason.....

The easiest thing to do is not vote.

Labour haven't delivered education and healthcare.

The Conservatives are conservative.

The Liberal Democrats don't seem to have policies.

The three main parties are a joke, and no one else has a chance of getting elected.

Lib Dems, as no other party has any credibility in my opinion.
Did you see Charles Kenedy get SLATED by the whole house of commons on Wednesday? Everyone was laughing at him ... he has completely changed his policies to 'fit in' with his top-up fees proposal. I felt so sorry for him, he went so red his hair mixed into his face lol.

They have delivered healthcare and education - we are in a far better position now that we would have been if the Tories had won in 1997. And I dont think even Tory supporters would dare argue with that.

If the Lib Dems ever came to power they would soon lose any 'credibility' you feel they may have. The Lib Dems are a pretend party and will remain a protest vote. I dread to think, indeed I don't believe it will happen, that they will one day be in power.
