Wouldn't want to vote for any of them, but as it might be important I'd pick whichever of the two main parties I disliked the least.

Currently, that'd be the Conservatives.

Well, I can tell you that he was always involved in my community. Not even joking, he used to come to shows my primary school would put on (he's good friends with my primary head who was a lovely man who put his heart and soul into that primary school), he was around at my secondary school too, often making appearances and being generally actually interested in the community. When I was at primary school my class got chosen to go to parliament and ask him questions so he took time out of his day to be there for us kids. I know his name from the age of 10 because he was always around. Never heard of any other mp as a kid growing up, just him. I think he genuinely cares about his cause. I believe he is an genuine man, and honestly cares about his cause. He's proved himself to me personally, I feel confident in him and would vote him. Most of the kids in my area feel the same way, I remember everyone talking about it when we were in year 12.

Sorry if this isn't political enough for you, but you did say to tell of any likeable traits. These are so
Thank you, genuinely I have never heard of him doing things of this nature. And even though I try to read more than just what's in the mainstream news I always seem to find stories of him being rude or stubborn. Guess I need to be more thorough.

There'll be an abundance of tax revenue to spend on public services after they've created a hostile environment for businesses, who'll probably decide they're better off moving their operations elsewhere. Renationalised rail/utilities industries won't make the state apparatus an even more bloated, bureaucratic, inefficient money pit than is already the case...

Then again, moot points really. Anybody who's seen more than one general election knows that campaign promises and manifesto pledges are worth as much as second hand toilet paper.
I'm rather tired of all these cliche's about businesses fleeing etc. Especially as the Tories by and large still support Brexit, despite businesses saying they'll flee etc. Businesses hate Brexit and the Tories are pushing for a hard Brexit.

There's no evidence that nationalised industries are less efficient. How about the collapse of Carillion? Or our awful trains which are far worse than nationalised Euorpean services? Or our extremely expensive energy suppliers?

Of course the private sector has it's part to play and is better for certain sectors, but you seem to have this rather simplistic view that public sector = bad and private sector = good.

Our current public services are starved of cash, and Labour for all their faults are the only party who are serious about providing them sufficient funding.

His point was that the Lib Dems aren't exactly left wing, and since 2010 have been rather right wing. The Lib Dems were pretty much indistinguishable from Cameron's Tories in the coalition. Anna Soubry even described them as Orange Tories.

So glad I could help! It really is such a privilege that I have this viewpoint.

I would vote, if I could, for May as Jeremy Corbyn is a d*** who puts party above country. In my personal opinion may is doing well. She is negationating in tough conditions with the Irish backstop and she is having even more trouble as our mps can't realise that a no deal is our bargaining chip and if We rule it out we lose all leverage on negotiations. If we stop we shall be stuck forever and will have to accept the eu army and other stuff like that from people we don't vote for even though our ancestors died for us to be free and have our say democratically. Corbyn doesn't want to leave and will stop it at all costs, he hasn't a clue what he is doing.I'm just 15 though so ignore me

would vote for LD but dont feel like it would make much difference, its a conservative "safe seat" and due to this first past the post, with the Greens and LDs spread so thinly, they barely get any seats

Ah sweet, was it his ability to promise stuff he cannot actually provide or his uncanny ability to sound like davros every time he makes a speech that drew you to him?
Labour will never get my vote again until after he and all his ilk put back on the backbenches where they belong, they can spout all their Marxist claptrap about how Israel is ruling the world from there all they like.

CBA with Tories as they've destroyed the morale of so many of the people who live here - from a wide demographic.

There is their persistent undermining of the welfare system and the people who need it, there is the Windrush scandal and the stripping of citizenship to ethnic minorities only. 90% less housing investment since Gordon Brown left.

Increase in tuition fees is another issue. Its so rubbish for most people in the UK to have conservative government. I think people who vote for them and aren't of the wealthy classes are sycophantic lol.

I dunno what else to add but there is nothing to vote for in the Tory party. Corbynista through and through lol
