    I won't agree with you, but I'll genuinely listen to reasons why I shouldn't.

    Well, since labour always seem to spend and spend. The tories have to make cuts and are seen as the bad guys. They are starting to help the economy and we need to give them a chance. But yes, also social values. I'm not from a rich family, but I agree with some of their values. However, I believe footballers should be taxed way more

    Also, the unions have Miliband wrapped around their finger and that cannot be good.

    Don't ask us. Check other sources of information as opposed to the media controlled by the moguls. Use multiple sources and the roots of newspaper stories, many statistics and stories are twisted.

    Their spending cuts are actually having a negative impact on our economy.

    Also, unions views represent a better view of our country's demand compared to the rich conservatives.
    We have seen the effect that the Unions have if they are allowed to enact their policies. It ended in an IMF bailout and the death of British industry. Why should workers want to be represented by the people whose greed destroyed our industries?

    The current Conservative leadership is too cowardly to make any big decisions, and seems more interested in what will be popular than what will help Britain.

    Haha true. And it's ironic they really aren't that popular.

    Tbh, no one seems to be popular in politics anyway

    This. If you're going to sacrifice a proportion of the population for the greater good (again) at least do it in a way that is actually going to create (proper) growth and provide for the long-term instead of just pandering to bitter people who want dose benefits removed.

    Why 'support' any of them? All the politicians are cast from the same mould, they are all 'third way' social democrats who love the idea of political theatre.

    Anybody who thinks an MP is there solely for the good of the country is a moron. They act first to use the force of government to further their own ends, and act secondly in the interest of constituents to try and win votes.

    Party politics is a complete sham, as is this middle of the road statism we currently live under which creeps slowly but steadily towards greater and greater authoritarianism.

    Yeah, because religious governments are models of moral conduct. That's why Tehran's such a lovely place to live and Stockholm is a hellhole.

    The conservatives are there to maintain traditional values; they are there merely to hold back any form of social change; and such change is to be needed if we're to live in a greater society; of one that provides the greatest number of happiness for the greatest number of people; conservatives are paid baby sitters.

    Yeah, they've totally held back social change by legalising gay marriage.

    yeah only recently, why is that??? probably because they have no choice; desperate plea to win votes which labour would have done anyway.

    It could be because they weren't in government for 13 years prior to the current parliament. As Labour plainly didn't do it prior to the current parliament, the conservatives can hardly be said to be holding back progress at any rate.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Same-se...United_Kingdom

    "The Conservative Party: senior Conservatives, including David Cameron, William Hague, George Osborne, and Theresa May supported the bill,[111][112] however, the issue is contentious in the party. Just over half of Conservative MPs voted against the second reading[113][114] but polling has shown that the majority of Conservative voters support the bill"

    On voting intention, 73% Liberal Democrats, 64% Labour voters and 53% Conservatives agreed that gay couples should have the right to marry.[55][56]

    In 2010 the Green Party of England and Wales,[98] the Liberal Democrats, and Plaid Cymru endorsed same-sex marriage at their party conferences.
    The following groups and individuals expressed their support for same-sex marriage legislation in England and Wales:


    On 16 January 2013, the Coalition for Equal Marriage announced that it had found evidence for the support of a majority of MPs in the House of Commons.[SUP][104]

    So the conservatives just decided not to give their opinion on anything like they always do because they don't want any form of change unless it benefits it them.
