As much as I want to vote Labour, the Lib Dems in my area have a much higher chance of getting rid of the current Tory MP (who is utterly useless), so will be voting for them.

The conservative party of course. I am not a racist, anti-Semitic, uneducated, rich envious witch to be voting for Labour.
Actually, statistically speaking, those with GCSE education or lower are much more likely to vote Conservative and those with degree education or higher are most likely to vote Labour - so your point about Labour voters being uneducated doesn't really work...


Also, Labour are not 'rich envious'... They recognise that some people in society have an unfair advantage compared to others, and consequently want to provide the opportunities they currently have limited access to (i.e access to higher education, a completely nationalised NHS, etc...). You only have to be human or have even the slightest bit of compassion for those who are disadvantaged to realise that policies such as free healthcare and abolition of tuition fees are worthwhile, fundamentally good ideas.

If I were to vote, I would want to vote Brexit Party but would vote Conservative to keep Corbyn out
Good logic there

Brexit Party will definitely get a good Brexit deal, and actually perform Brexit (which is what the UK voted for in the EU referendum).
Voting Conservative would keep out Corbyn (I don't like him) and Labor's promise of a second referendum, with "remain" as an option (just why - we voted to leave, so you need to stick to that result - otherwise, what is the point of referendums?).
Liberal Democrats really should be avoided at all costs. They will revoke Article 50 - i.e. won't give a damn about what the UK actually wanted.

I'd never vote Green though - voting Green would result in all forms of energy generation (e.g. fuel, electricity, gas, train fares, petrol etc etc) skyrocketing massively.

IMO, Brexit Party > Conservatives > Labor > Liberals > Anyone else (including not voting at all) >> Green.

The Brexit Party does not want a deal with the EU. Nigel Farage is very clear that he wants no deal.

Democracy is an ongoing process, if a majority of people vote for remain parties then we should remain.

I respect all parties but stand by Labour- the one party (in my opinion) which is actually worrying about the country and not just their salaries. Would have voted for Conservative but Britain's just a mess right now

Voting conservative because labour are confused and who wants Corbyn as PM, Lib Dems would reverse the referendum result with no referendum

How did they get that wealth if they didn't earn it?
Inheritance? Theft? Luck?

This will be my first vote as I just got my voting rights (yay!).
For me its either Labour or the Brexit Party, I have lost faith in the conservatives on dealing with Brexit and seriously hate them for privatising every damn industry in this country.
For the Brexit Party, there won't be many candidates standing so most likely I will vote for Labour.

I'd like to see the statistics that you base that on. Many billionaires may not be the children of billionaires per se, but they very often nonetheless come from privileged backgrounds.

Another reason for not voting Conservatives, many of them are elitist or come from elitist backgrounds

The Duke of Westminster has failed in his attempt to kick out families, including disabled children, from their council flats to make way for luxury housing.

Isn't it people's right to do what they want with their money, regardless of how they earned it*.
* in a legal way, obviously.
The point is that they didn't earn it. Nobody on earth is worth billions of pounds. They didn't aquire a hundred billion pounds through sheer labour with their own hands. They're simply a product of an economic system and successive governments that enables them to aquire unlimited wealth whilst the rest of the world can go starve. And that's one of the fundamental flaws of capitalism.You have certain rights yes but not at the expense of others.

Another flaw is that it relies on unending growth of the economy which won't work because sooner or later you run out of resources and the system collapses.

Interest as well. What's 1% of a billion? At some point your money grows itself without any active effort on your part.And that's down to our economic system. Also tax avoidance.

I'm sorry this is totally misleading.

The residents launched a petition to keep the building. That has got nowhere as it never would since the building is clearly under-occupying this central London prime location.

The tenants were always going to have to be relocated during the construction work and they still will.

The new building, like all new developments, will have to contain a proportion of affordable housing.

What isn't clear to me is whether the Grosvenor Estate or Westminster LBC has made a concession that the ex-tenants will have first dibs on the new affordable housing or whether that was always in the cards and the agitprops acting for the tenants having failed are trying to turn what was always going to happen into a victory.

Labour, despite it is led by an ineffective and alleged anti Semite Jeremy Corbyn. WE NEED TO LOOK AT POLICIES NOT PERSONALITY.

I love Boris Johnson, I loved him being London Mayor even though i'm a Leftist Centrist. But I will not like a prime minister who is racist, acting like Trump 2.0 and generally being trash. Corbyn would be the right man for Britain for a real shake up. I don't agree with a second referendum but i ****ing agree with free bus travel for under 25 and the abolishment of student debt so if that it on offer, even though i know it's crazy, then i'm sold.

And no. Don't ****ing vote Lib dems, those ****ing one nation tories 2.0
