    if there was an election tomorrow who would you vote for? I think I would vet for
    Lib Dem as they want to take us back in to the EU.

    The Tories seem to have got worse after Cameron (pig fancier) left office and
    now seem quite elitist.
    Labour are in disarray.

    I can't see/want UKIP in power so it seems to me that Lib Dem is my only option

    Green.

    Theresa May needs a trip to Switzerland, Corbyn hasn't got half the back bone he promised us, the Lib Dems really are the chocolate tea pot party, and let's not get started on UKIP, we know what they are, they serve no purpose but appeasing that racist bloke down the pub who keeps talking to you but you really wish he'd stop breathing on you.

    The Greens aren't ideal by any stretch, but I disagree with less of what they stand for than the rest of them.

    This good logic. Really upset with the crumbling of Labour, was so excited to see Corbyn take the reigns but everyone's arguing like children. Green would probably get mine too, provided they had a solid candidate

    The whole shared leadership thing seems to suggest they don't have anyone in the party they trust to take the reigns, essentially, British politics is in a sorry state at the moment.

    That's not a green party policy.

    At the same time, I'll readily admit some of their policies are strange, but I still think they're the least bad option if they have someone who can actually lead the party.

    I'd vote for Lib Dem only because they're the only party that can potentially dethrone the tories over here

    Tory.

    Labour have elected an extremist, the Lib Dems have abandoned the coalition years and have turned on the Tories and although James is preferable to Farage, they still come across as being a party who blames others for the countries personal failings.

    I do prefer Cameron to May though, i think the country will miss him in time.

    Tory.

    Closest party to taking us out of the European Union and respecting the democratic decision of the referendum.

    Well,
    Labour is in a mess.
    Unsure about the changes to UKIP / Conservative.
    Green seems like a cool party.
    Lib Dems seem out of place.

    So I vote Green.

    I hate the Tories and I'm pro-EU so that rules them and UKIP out.

    The Greens live in fantasy land.

    I wouldn't vote Lib Dem on the basis that they want to get rid of Trident(except for tactically).

    Normally Labour 100%, but they're now led by an incompetent fool and will continue to be for the foreseeable future by the look of things.

    Probably a spoiled ballot for me or a local independent of there is one.

    I think the best policy is to vote on an individual basis. There are politicians all across the spectrum who I'd never vote for. I'd vote for ukip if that was the least bad option.

    My Tory MP is awful I'd probably vote for the Labour candidate who I know and is pretty sensible and resoloutley anti Corbyn ( virtually all Parliamentary candidates in the SE voted for Kendall and were almost in tears when Corbyn was elected- Corbyn being the antithesis of what voters in their constituencies saying they wanted)

    Don't you think the problem is that Labour has been two (or maybe more) parties in one for too long? The only thing that really held everything together was the promise of electoral success. When Blair started to win, the far left got antsy about being sidelined. I really do think there's Blue Labour and Red Labour, and they have almost nothing in common. Blue Labour have much more in common that the Lib Dems than they do with the Corbyn Faction. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that they have more in common with the left of the Conservative Party - which is why the Corbynites hate them so much.

    Most large parties are like that in a FPTP system. Cameron and Bone for example have very little in common.

    Unfortunately for yourselves, Miliband's £3 membership idea was clearly an incredibly stupid act and instead of attracting those not previously engaged in politics, it's allowed in hordes of ex-members and radical socialists.

    The only parties that I agree with on a decent amount (that I would consider voting for - I agree with Plaid Cymru on lots of things too but screw that lol) of things are Labour, Green and Lib Dems. Lib Dems can go f**k themselves with their position on the EU and it's pretty damn hard to know what Labour stand for, if anything, with all the disarray and inconsistency, so I'd probably vote Green.
    (I know Green wanted to stay in, but IIRC Lib Dems advocated overturning the vote)

    I agree fully but that problem isn't going to go away unless we get PR.

    Do you think PR would make things better or worse on a parliamentary level? At the moment, there aren't that many hard left Labour MPs, but on a PR/Party List system - do you think this would change? Depends what you think the projections are for people who would actually vote for a major outwardly Socialist party.
