    if a system of proportional representation was in place it's likely i'd vote UKIP/Libertarian. under the current electoral system, it's likely i'll be voting tory.

    Labour. I know they won't win, but i want them to at least remain a viable party and effective opposition, think Clegg is far to sympathetic to the Tory cause, need a party whose members and majority of backbenchers will stand for the centre left. Dont want to see a lack of opposition when the next parliament will basically be negotiating what will be cut and not much else.

    Labour. I would vote Lib Dems but since it's a tightly run two horse race, any vote for Clegg instead of Brown is practically a vote for Cameron.

    This. It is probably certain that we'll have a tory government for at least the next two terms (as much as I'd like it to be otherwise) and labour still need to have some force in representing those of us who didn't go to Eton and don't have duck ponds or moats around our homes. Having said that, if we see the lib-dems turn a little leftward during the first tory term the idea of a coalition with labour isn't impossible, although some move towards PR will have to be brokered - and I think it probably should be anyway tbh.
