    Half of it was concerned with how the conservatives are getting ahead of the libs dems and ukip. This being the reason you should vote for them.

    I didn't get to read the other half.. it ended up in the bin.

    Yet you complain that they weren't offering you their policies. Surely you should read all leaflets and opinions, and then make an informed decision based on what you believe makes the most sense; and not based on class snobbery inherited from your parents?

    Fairplay to you, it's funny seeing the Cons faces when you tell them that, I answered the door once and my mum was out and the cheeky Conservative git was demanding from me (he had a bit of an attitude) who my mum was voting... I told him anyone but Conservative, please don't bother us again.

    Obviously they didn't make it the goal of thier leaflet to show thier policies so why should I actively seek it out?

    Class snobbery? No, I developed that one myself

    The mask really slips from the faces of the LibLabCon canvassers when I tell them I'm a UKIP voter. Their reaction is just too delicious.

    He's doing what we'd call 'Voter ID' (at least, that's what it's called in the Labour party). He's not actually trying to convince you. He'll have you down as 'against' now, which means you probably won't get many more. They'll be targeting the 'for' and 'maybe's...

    What mask? I think it's pretty clear we dislike UKIP/BNP... I don't hesitate to tell people they're wrong when they tell me they're voting fascist...

    How are the BNP and UKIP in any way equivelant and how are the UKIP fascist?

    The one that's all professional which slips when they find out I'm a UKIP supporter. And UKIP and the BNP have markedly different policies apart from the most well known one - leaving the EU. UKIP is in no way fascist, so I'm not wrong. You could detail why you think UKIP is wrong without the character assassination, but then your side's arguments have become old, cliched and have been shredded, and I haven't seen anything new. And I could argue that you support a growing facism, albeit not intentionally I'm sure. But then perhaps not, we probably don't need another thread about the EU.

    I'm not a BNP supporter and its supporters can defend it themselves.
