Not that they deserve it. Best policies, Financial Institutions have come out saying they have the clearest financial plan.Lib Dem... they're gonna get absolutely wrecked, mind you.
"Stop unfair sanctions on the poor and disabled"Labour. Won't make a difference as it'll remain a Lib Dem area probably (small chance of a Con majority but very unlikely).
To me, they're the only credible party. They have their faults and aren't far enough to the left for me however I can't see a valid alternative. I'm tempted by the Greens however I'm yet to be convinced that their policies add up.
I want a party who will stop unfair sanctions on the poor and disabled, who will tax the rich at a higher level and will protect the NHS. The last point I'm not convinced on mind.
Fair enough. For me, I believe he knows he can't get away with something like that again. I think this time though if they are back, they will genuinely act as the moral compass.Lib Dems have voted in favour of a bedroom tax and have been part of a government that has seen a huge rise in food bank use.
I agree with a lot of what the Lib Dems say they want to achieve but I believe the square root of fuck all that comes out of Clegg's mouth. He jumped in to bed with Cameron to get his shot at the big time, went against his promises and now pretends to be the moral compass in politics.
As I say, i'll have a Lib Dem MP anyway so it'll make no difference but I'll never vote for them.
Why do you feel they are scum if you don't mind me asking?

As Cleggy said, if it is the conservatives, Libs are the heart, stopping the cruelty, if it is Labour, libs are the brain.
I've voted for them before because I was living in an area where it was either them or the Tories but they have proved they are pretty much the same thing . It felt dirty the first time and won't happen again .Deserve to be completely crushed. What they have done with tuition fees is disgraceful, and that's without considering the fact they pledged to abolish the fees altogether. Fucking wankers the lot of them.
I don't particularly like either the Conservatives or Labour.
This is where I find myself at the moment.
I don't like the way the Conservatives have run their campaign; I disagree with much of what they have done whilst in power, particularly in terms of education, which as a teacher is an important issue for me. I'm also really concerned about what our society will look like if they are able to enact their fiscal policy for the next five years. Yes our bank balance will look much healthier, but the effect that will have on thousands of people and their real life experiences is a massive worry.
On the other hand I share many of the same concerns about Labour that a lot of people have mentioned; can they be trusted with the economy? Is Ed Miliband actually up to the job of being Prime Minister? To be fair, three months ago I much preferred Cameron to Miliband, and over the course of the campaign my opinions of both have changed to the point where I see them as fairly equal now, but I'm still not convinced Ed is a Prime Minister in waiting.
So then I ask myself who else I could vote for. And then I realise that these are the only two with any chance of getting elected, and whether I want it to be the case or not, we're essentially left with a choice between Labour and Tory.
I'll vote Labour I think, mainly due to the difference in education policy and I'm also very reluctant to have a referendum on the EU. But I certainly see Labour as the best of a bad bunch, and they're only the best because the rest of the bunch are SO bad.
