    If you're a 13 year old, may I ask why exactly you prefer the Tories?
    Because their views are similar to mine.

    That's pretty obvious; however, I rarely see the Tories venturing into the realm of making substantive policy decisions, so I'm going to need you to be a bit more specific on that one

    Conservatives, because they are the only ones who have a chance at sorting this country out.

    For all those who would vote for Labour, remember Labour don't want to win, as they'll have to live up to the consequences of their actions. In Labour the people in it for the long run would far prefer the Conservatives to be elected, make the very unpopular cutbacks and decisions needed to sort this country out, then get voted back in after the Conservatives have sorted it out.

    I don't think many people on here understand the extent of the damage Browns Government have caused to this country.

    Mainly, I'm with the Tory's on the Environment... however apart from that, I feel that they are the best to lead us out of the recession.. which the LEFT put us into...

    I could go on.. but I'm too tired today to bother.

    1. How exactly are you "with" them on the environment? All the tories have ever done is making airy statements about cutting carbon emissions, which is something you can hardly disagree with, except of course for the fact they'll be very unlikely to bring something substantive into law.
    2. How exactly do you think they're going to lead us out of the recession?
    3. Why do you think the left put us into the recession?

    1. Take a look at the TSR HOC - all the bills (bar 1) I have proposed is to do with the Environment.

    2. Well anything better than Labour is a start.

    3. Hint - Gordon Brown, Labour, Alastair "Eyebrows" Darling

    Lib Dems. I am aware though that where I live it is doubtful my vote will make a difference. My MP though Labour has something like a 20% majority, after that comes the Conservatives so I can't see the Lib Dems winning. That doesn't mean I won't vote for them though.

    The next party to obtain a seat would be Conservative instead of Labour for 1 votes.

    1. How the **** does you proposing environmental bills as a Tory in a model House of Commons in any way translate into the Tories having environmental policies? Bills you propose =/= Tory policy
    2. How do you know the Tories will be "better than Labour"?
    3. How exactly did those two people cause a worldwide recession?

    You're hardly doing a good job in persuading me from my opinion that Tory supporters are a bunch of idiots who just accept whatever Cameron says.

    Yeh, however I am young, I am tired after a very late night last night, so I will not do a good job, on the top of my game... which I am very far away from.. you'd be begging me for forgiveness.

    If you are definably going to stand in the next election, then vote Ind/Other.
    If you are a member of a party and you want to vote for that party... go ahead.

    All I ever hear when people try to debate what party is better is blame, blame, blame (This is true on this forum and elsewhere). A good party would be one who actually has ideas to differentiate themselves from the rest, rather than trying to make others look worse.

    **** off would I, that's the ********* excuse ever. I presented you with three searching questions, and your inability to answer any of them proves to me you're just jumping on a bandwagon, and that the Tories are still a bunch of *******.
    P.S What's a late night for a 13 year old? Ten O Clock or something? and it's a **** excuse anyway
