Could someone explain to me the different parties? And what they stand for. Without being biased.
I'm trying to make an informed decision about who to support.

No, certainly not on TSR.

There must be a summary on the internet. Google for their last election manefestos. Or wait until the next election then read the new ones. They are the only things that actually mean anything.

I would recommend reading all the manifestos of the three major parties (liblabcon). Then other political parties as well such as Green Party and UKIP.

Remember there isn't a right or wrong party, if you agree with what that political party stands for and wants then go for that one.

You cant say not UKIP. It's her choice. What you may disagree with she might agree with. There wouldnt be so many different political parties if everyone agreed with each other.

There is no right or wrong party.

They do? If we're going by party manifestos the Lib Dems should have scrapped tuition fees and the Tories shouldn't have introduced the Health and Social Care Act. What actually happened though?

There isn't a wrong party. Just because you don't agree with it doesn't make it wrong.

Neither party won a majority so the coalition agreement is the best articulation of the Government.

The Lib Dems got (well a swing at) what they wanted on the front cover of theirs. Tuition fees was not part of the three things though.

I'm not too well versed on the Health and Social Care Act.

My point is the manefestos are the best articulation of what a party is about

Tories wear blue, Labour wears red, LibDems were a kind of yellow-orangey type get up.

In honesty, that's about it.

Tories - Split between moderates, liberals and uber-conservatives they are a broad church who generally believe in private ownership (though not always without government interference - railways for example), generally support low taxes and less regulation. Social views are somewhat divided between the uber-conservatives and the moderates/liberals.

Labour - The bulk of the party supports social democracy, whereby the bulk of services have public involvement and taxes are relatively high but not overly so. Generally socially liberal. The Blairites (10-20% of the party but notable front benchers like Chucka Omuna) are much more inclined to support a moderated neo-liberal consensus (wet Tory economic policies) but can also have a somewhat 'Big Brother' attitude whereby they believe the nanny state knows best.

Liberal Democrats - Divided they are mixture of social democrats who split from Labour in 81 when it was still heavily socialist and what are known as 'Orange Bookers' who tend to be both economically and socially liberal. Clegg and Laws are ardent 'Orange Bookers', Constitutional reform is what sets them apart from the other two.

Greens - Socially extremely liberal but economically heavily socialist they believe in fundamental shift of politics, high taxation and state ownership are the order of the day.

Ukip - Primarily disaffected Tories they tend to be uber-conservative (death penalty, anti-gay marriage and immigration) with the addition of a heavily Euro-skeptic and anti-immigration streak (one policy being to freeze immigration for 5 years).

conservatives - economically centre right, socially authoritarian
labour - economically centre left, socially authoritarian
lib dems - economically centre left, socially centrist
ukip - economically right wing, socially centrist
green party - economically left wing, socially centrist
BNP - economically centre left, socially fascist ("authoritarian" doesn't describe them accurately enough)
all without any bias! well...who's arguing with me in terms of BNP?
