    Lots of students are Lib. Dems. so this can't really be taken as representative of national opinion.

    The LDs beat Labour into third place in the local elections. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw Labour relegated to third place in the General Election, either, even though people generally vote differently there.

    It's time that the left was given some credibility and rationality again rather than the rhetoric, sleaze and spin of NuLabour.

    Lib Dem is hardly a left party. It's really more just Social Liberalism.

    Lib dems. I find their politicians quite competent, and their views reasonable yet also third partyish which is understandable. And isn't it time for a fresh party in power!

    Conservative.

    When you have had a Chancellor and then Prime Minister like Gordon Brown you know you need change.

    (and before you say justify that...he:

    Sold off UK gold reserves at the lowest price
    Raided public sector pensions and has caused a massive deficit
    Introduced a VAT cut which did nothing
    Said he had ended boom and bust...LOL)

    ....I could go on....

    I would normally vote Conservative, however, David Cameron is throwing me off.
    As a result, I put UKIP.

    I was surprised to find I'd voted Labour on this poll when I opened this thread. So much can change in a couple of months... now I'm certain that I won't be voting for them next year.

    UKIP for me due to their Anti-EU stance and their Libertarian leaning policies.

    Liberal Democrats - labour/conservative don't seem to respect civil liberties and ideologies like innocent until proven guilty enough for my liking with all this censorship and detail keeping not to mention holding people for ludicrous amounts of time without trial under anti-terrorism laws

    And the other parties are too chauvinistic

    I will correct your statement:

    Liberal Democrats - The Labour party does NOT respect any liberties or rights, such as Innocent until prove guilty, coupled with censorship and the ludicrous nature of the anti-terrorism laws.

    Whereas the Conservatives support freedom, liberties, rights and various other traditional laws.

    But because I like to sit on the fence, I will choose the Liberal Democrats.

    can't believe this thread is still going lol. but i do think a new one will be needed soon with all the new political developments which have happened since july which would have an effect. e.g. the iraq war inquiry will have a negative effect on labour and positive effect on the lib dems, the new leader of UKIP may have turned some voters off them, yet at the same time its the only party still promising a referendum on the EU (excluding the BNP) now the conservatives have gone back on their 'casdt-iron promise' (which would surely cause some people to switch from the conservatives to UKIP), etc, etc.

    sorry i just saw this. i havent got much time on my hands to go explaining how wrong you are here but the LibDems are most definately centre-left. and are certainly more left than Labour is right now.

    "it's really just social liberalism" <-- yeh thats what makes a leftist party.
