    I just don't like British politics. But I'd vote Lib Dems. I'm a leftwing scientist, which is fairly typical.

    I don't get the fundamental opposition to voting for a particular party, tbh. Seems a bit myopic
    Ok, I should have added 'unless their policies fundamentally change'. To be honest, I can't really see the Tories ever putting together a manifesto that I'd agree with but I wouldn't rule out voting for them if they did.

    Lol, maybe he's the same guy that I saw at the Union on American election night who looked really upset when McCain lost.

    He was at the union, but he left before they announced the result and came back to our bar.

    I don't get it :hmpf: I only have 6 hours of lectures each week this term. There are huge, vast gaping holes in my week. Yet somehow the Department can't find any better time to teach The Political Economy of Globalisation other than 9am!!! :>.<:

    Ah well. I guess I'll get alot of work done on Tuesdays, being levered out of bed at such a time :rolleyes:

    If a person is genuinely convinced that a party is guaranteed to destroy the country a person lives in, then I think they're fulling justified in having strong views about other people not voting for them :p: If it didn't have a bearing on their own life, then fair enough - each to their own.. but that precisely isn't the case.

    Try Caius I'm one of the few people there that definitely wouldn't vote Tory at the next election (or at all, come to that!)

    i was going to express outrage but i think you win
    NatSci 9ams>Med 9ams :p:
    I had saturday 9ams in my 3rd year. Medics used to have saturday lectures in the 2nd year, but that stopped with the 2004 intake thankfully. However, 1B MVST is pretty packed these days...

    How is your prep for Tuesday going? Do you still have JF supervising you for anatomy? I saw him in the theatre area today.

    I think as you 'grow up' and 'see the real world', most left wing students shift to the right, economically if not socially. That certainly seems to be the case with a lot of people I know, including me.

    Oh, sorry. Although I'm sure people who say that mean:'I'd never support x, y, z policies or solutions' if they think about it.

    Most people do. Some people though mean, for example "I'd never support the Tories = I'm secretly a classist inverse snob who hates the middle and upper classes and believes they're incapable of organising anything beyond a fox hunt and brandy tasting session"
