    I support Labour. They have had some issues lately and many people don't believe in Jeremy Corbyn. I do, I think he is great and he is a good representation of the values the Labour party should have. The party was corrupt way before Corbyn, and I think he is recreating the party, helping it become more pure and representative of the people.

    Labour care about the working class, the NHS, education... all things that the Tories seem not to care about at all.

    i totally agree with this i perosnally think that jeremy corbyn is the leader the labour party has needed for a long time as i was personally getting sick with new labour moving further and further to the right over the yeras rather than holding on to the values that their party was founded on helping the working man. corbyns labour all the way.

    Lib Dems, been a member since April last year. I'm not sure if I agree with the stance on Europe tbf, but civil liberties and mental health are the most important issues to me and they're the only party doing a decent job on both of those.

    Seeing as you're an advocate of a one party Communist state then that doesn't exactly surprise me...

    Communist state is an oxymoron. It is technofascism.

    I don't see a problem with being party-less. As is often said it is not like a football club, you don't have to stick to one party or another. Policies and leadership of parties change and so it makes sense to be a floating voter. It is good for democracy if voters are reactive.

    I don't support any party. I made my choice in the last election and when I'm asked to vote again, I will consider the options and decide which I think is best. Unless, you want to get involved in campaigning, I don't think you need to support a particular party.

    Support none of them. Probably a very radical conservative. If a GE was held now I would vote for lib Dems but I would hope they didn't win overall.

    Mental health is interwoven with health care and the NHS. The Lib Dems are as useful as a chocolate fireguard for this due to their Orange Book turn. Mental health treatment is much superior for those how have money. Good luck if you are mentally ill and rely on the NHS, enjoy 6month+ waiting lists.

    Health care is tied up to distribution of wealth and power. I don't know how that doesn't lead to left wing politics.

    I hate the Conservatives for being the party of big business, having a terrible record on the environment, and for their more authoritarian tendencies May has displayed recently. Labour oppose them, which is good, but then they oppose air strikes on ISIS, which is pacifism taken way too far if you ask me. The Greens care about the environment, but they also oppose those air strikes, and they also oppose pretty much all shooting, which is very bad for conservation in the UK as pest control and the culling of invasive species is essential for it. Then there's UKIP, who are climate change deniers and basically Conservatives on steroids. And the Lib Dems are far too pro-EU for my liking. I could go into much more detail on my issues with these parties but to save space I won't.

    Give me a party which is sensible, anti establishment, opposes corruption, wants to limit the influence of big business on politics, wants to reform our political system, cares about the environment but isn't full of extreme pacifists and animal rights people like Labour and the Green party and I'd gladly vote for it.

    You're against pacifism and ultra- animal rights, but are for environmentism. Yet, they're all different sides of the same 3-d coin. Liberal brainwashing that feeds on white guilt in order to push authoritarian policies. The environmental """ scientists""" that produce these so called statistics have either been all paid off or been so deeply indoctrinated that they can't see the truth. Carbon dioxide isn't a good thing. But that doesn't mean that we need to hurt our economic output and job security in society. Because in the end that'll do worse than any waste gasses in the air.

    Carbon dioxide is a good thing. So is water, but you can still drown in it. What a ****ing stupid argument that is. Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, too much of it causes the temperature to warm. That's the very basics of how greenhouse gases work.

    There is no evidence for this "environmental scientists are paid off" conspiracy theory. None at all. There are many thousands of scientists in many different countries and many different research institutions that would need to be paid off. Like many conspiracy theories, it would be completely impossible simply because of how many people would need to be involved.

    Well as I got what I wanted in the referendum I'm now free to vote for another party.

    Unfortunately I can't vote labour or lib dem which leaves me with the conservatives most likely unless ukip rises with unity and good policies.

    I won't hold my breath on that one though

    Disagree. Nuttall is a self-proclaimed Thatcherite who wants to privatise the NHS.
    The BNP were genuinely protectionist economically.
