No funny biased questions, who will you be voting for, or supporting, in the next General Election (or Euro-elections)?

I've just written a piece as to where my vote's going but I want this to be unbiased.

I'll be voting for Labour (partly as a tactical vote as it's a clean race between Lab and Con in my area and I know which one I prefer). In an ideal world (or at least one with PR) I'd vote for the Socialist Workers party.

I don't care about the Euros. I'm not sure whether I'd support the tories or the lib dems in the general. Maybe if the economy was doing better I'd be more comfortable with the lib dems. It just seems like in these sort of times I should let economics be the deciding factor and economically I'm closer to the tories. But at the same time, Nick Clegg is way hotter than David Cameron and the lib dems' other policies are mostly so much nicer than the tories'. :eek3:

Of course if I were actually British and allowed to vote, I'd have to consider the constituency. If it were between the tories and Labour, I'd have no problem voting Conservative.

I was considering voting for the BNP, which is why I'm thoroughly disappointed it isn't included in this clearly biased poll.

It's a bit of a tired political protest that anarchists just spoil their ballots on purpose.

When the BNP has represenation both in Parliament or even in Europe, then they'll be considered as a serious option. Until then (and one hopes never), they're an insignificant party belonging to the cluster 'Other'.

I don't want to hear "oh you'll see *** nxt elektuns they're guna kick labour oot!", we've heard it all before.

Voting BNP would make me feel VERY unBritish and I'd probably regret it for a long time.

I'd be interested to know why you prefer the Tories to the Lib Dems economically.

The Lib Dems were the only party in parliament to be warning about the national debt and the risk-taking culture at the time it was actually happening, and they have someone who is a respected economist as their shadow chancellor. By contrast, the Conservatives were promising to match Labour levels of public spending until very recently, and Lib Dem economic plans are very focused on the key areas. The economy seems to me to be one area where the Lib Dems are much more convincing - do you feel perhaps that you trust Cameron and Osbourne more with taxes?

Your "tactical" vote will mean very little, I highly doubt many people will vote Labour in Norfolk and Suffolk.

You know what, just forget it man.

And I thought it would be an ample opportunity for lulz.

I don't really know a whole lot about their shadow cabinets. If I were voting, then I'd definitely educate myself and take them into consideration. I'm just really thinking about ideology, and as far as I can see, the Conservative's economic policies are significantly more liberal. If I did think that the lib dems were much more competent in handling the economy, then I'd probably vote for them regardless of their ideals.

Keep dreaming. What do you base this on? Not that I wouldn't like to see Labour totally owned by both the Tories and Lib Dems.
