    I won't be voting because my political opinion is not accounted for on the ballot paper, as it is in other commonwealth countries, and as it should be here.

    NONE OF THE ABOVE

    3. Hint - Gordon Brown, Labour, Alastair "Eyebrows" Darling
    You realise Tory policies from until 2008 were to regulate less (you had a shadow minister for deregulation FFS!) and cut taxes? How would that have made this recession less severe? If the Tories had been in power, we'd be in a far worse position now!

    No they don't. If you count the centre party as left, they outnumber us by 2: if you don't, then we're tied :/

    Do you think that this will be the result in the TSR HOC election in 4-5 months time?
    Nope, because people vote in a general election for who they actually want to run the country. People vote in TSR elections for who they quite like the sound of. Plus TSR parties are pretty different from their RL counterparts, and some don't have RL counterparts.

    If this was to be a TSR election:

    Conservative (29.0%): 16
    Labour (25.0%): 14
    Lib Dem (21.8%): 12
    Green (7.3%): 4
    UKIP (3.2%): 1
    Libertarian (3.2%): 1
    Sinn Fein (3.2%): 1
    BNP (2.4%): 1
    SNP (1.6%): None
    Respect (0.8%): Not enough votes
    DUP (0.8%): Not enough votes
    Health Concern (0.8%): Not enough votes
    IND / Other (0.8%): Not enough votes
    Plaid Cymru (0.0%): Not enough votes
    SDLP (0.0%): Not enough votes
    UUP (0.0%): Not enough votes
    Votes 124 .
    The next party to obtain a seat would be Conservative instead of Labour for 2 votes.


    Or a RL election:

    Conservative (29.0%): 195

    I would start a SNP party on here if it wasn't completely pointless. But I just can't find a reason to start one

    While it's just for fun, the quality of discussion is pretty high and it's quite interesting to see what the parties put up. But forming a party isn't that easy, as you need to get 10 supporters to join it before you can officially form.

    Yeah I doubt I would find 9 SNP supporters who regularly post here. Maybe 3 or 4.

    Who would you vote for, and Why?
    I would vote for the Greens because I can't bring myself to vote for any of the three main parties. I despise Labour's lack of respect for civil liberties and the Nick Clegg led Liberal Democrats are a mess. As for the Conservatives, I think they are as authoritarian, if not more so, than Labour, and I think they really don't give a rat's arse about public services and the least fortunate in our society.

    Liberal Democrats. However, Nick Clegg seems a bit Tory for my liking but the party on the whole is significantly better than Labour and infinitely better than the Conservatives. The tories have been coming door to door in my area for a few weeks now because it's just marginally Labour.

    How is that possible? The Liberal Democrats garnered 22.1% of the votes in the last general elections and secured a mere 62 MPs.

    Would vote Green if all was equal but I might go for the "make my vote actually count" option and choose Liberal Democrats. Maybe Labour if there is some decent stuff going on.

    I'd like to vote Greens but it wouldn't make a difference, so instead I'd probably vote Labour - y'know, keep them hanging in there and all that
