It's actually in Labour's interest to lose in June than in May 2020 so they can replace Corbyn with someone sane.

From what I got following a little bit english politics. Labour hates the working class and panders to non-whites. They are also basically traitors of the English people as they are siding with the EU and Brussels.

Another problem is that the leader Corbyn is a crazy communists who has good ties with terrorist groups like IRA and Hamas.

Considering all this I see why an average person from England would side with Torries over Labour.

Voting Tory is a good idea if: 1) you are rich and hate the poor, 2) want the welfare system abolished, 3) want the NHS abolished 4) read the daily mail, and believe what they see on the endless channel 5 to shows demonising people on benefits and 5) are a vile racist and hate Europe.

If that's you then your a true Tory through and through.

Well this is absolute rubbish. *sigh*
So if you support the tories then you are a 'vile racist'?? Even if you're a person of colour that is a tory supporter?

Ha.

Try. Again.

i would vote labour but the party is in such a mess that i only have tory and lib dems as my only other two options
the problem is that the party is so divided that they dont have much too offer and the fact that they have no brexit plan makes it even worse
not to mention they have Diane Abbot as home secretary

Why do people immediately jump to ridiculous extremes whenever anything even vaguely left wing is mentioned, and compare it to socialism and countries like Venezuela? Venezuela is an authoritarian government with all sorts of other social problems; Britain is a stable democracy with a different standard of "left wing". Comparisons like that are ridiculous.

For crying out loud, "socialism" is not a catch all term for anything you disagree with, or for anything outside of Tory party policy.

I'm poor as hell and would vote conservatives over labour. Corbin is just awful, they need better people.

Because a lot of labour supporters are driving them away with their sanctimonious and intolerant attitude.

Just look at the title of this thread. A better way to word it would be 'what are the reasons people are voting Tory?' which at least entertains the idea of a discussion.

Instead we have a subtext of 'I'm right, you're wrong, why are you so stupid?' and it's driving people away.

Anyone who's ever been in sales knows you won't bully many people into buying. Find their need, paint them a picture how what you're hocking will give them that. And when you get an objection Acknowledge, Respond & Move on.

If we claim to NEVER use our nuclear weapons no matter what that leaves us in a massive danger zone.

Until Labour move their policies towards the centre and get a leader who the public respond well too, they aren't going to get into power.

I vote Conservative against the SNP, that's the only reason why.. It's a tactical vote, not because I like them.

The future threat of nuclear attack isn't one which mutually assured destruction protects us from. If you're facing an ideology that believes the apocalypse is a good thing, retaliation won't dissuade them.

The Tory party believes in meritocracy- working your way up for the things you want in life regardless of your circumstances, ie making the best out of your situation. They support those with low income and encourage people to make something of themselves. Obviously not every person has a good quality of life and those that need support get it- however a lot of British people cheat the benefit system. Labour is a hugely divided party and half of the party do not support Corbyn and didn't want him to be leader of their party but they are now pushing for him to be leader of the country? Economically the Conservatives have always been stronger than Labour. The Tories legalised same sex marriage which the Labour Party did not despite being in office 6 times after the Sexual Offences Act which shocks me when people accuse Tories of not caring about people. Corbyns policies would damage are economy massively and he wants to completely abolish the House of Lords! Meaning life peers who can give and educated approach to legislation etc would be replaced with MPs who only have a knowledge on politics

Because their ideas align with the Tories? That's why I'll be voting for them this GE... Thought I'd describe myself as centre-left, the Tories seem to be the party which I agree with the most. There are certain things I dislike (Privatisation of the NHS for example), but we align on most other important issues.

My views also align with Labour and UKIP, however, Labour and I disagree on some pretty important issues, and UKIP disagrees on some important issues, but seems to go to extremes on some issues where our view somewhat align.
