Green.

Miliband has impressed me in the debates but I'm sticking with Green out of principle.

Was probably Labour before, definitely Labour now. My seat is going to extremely close between Labour and Conservative and I'd much prefer the former. The Labour candidate has also made a positive impression on me so I'm happy to vote for her.

Conservative.

No sane person is voting for Labour. I'm sorry. Miliband running this country will finish us off.

Was going to be 100% Labour up to recently. Will be Green now as I agree with most of what they say and they're the only ones who have really shown their faces round here rather than just a million and one leaflets. It's kind of risky in the sense the seat where I am is very close and a tactical vote to get the Conservatives out is oh so tempting.

I live in a Tory Lib Dem area, where Labour have no chance. Would like to see a party on the left establish themselves, so voting Green this time.

Conservatives. I would've last time too but I was too young by a couple of months. A Lab/SNP coalition would be horrific.

Not that they deserve it. Best policies, Financial Institutions have come out saying they have the clearest financial plan.

As Cleggy said, if it is the conservatives, Libs are the heart, stopping the cruelty, if it is Labour, libs are the brain.

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.

"Stop unfair sanctions on the poor and disabled"
  1. Lib Dems have removed 3 million lower paid people from income tax by raising the income tax threshold.
  2. Introduced a banking levy to make sure banks pay a fair share
  3. Created a green investment bank
  4. Extra funding to disadvantaged children in schools
I won't say anymore, will let you have a look at it - http://whatthehellhavethelibdemsdone.com/

But the lib dems are the one party who has a record of standing up for environmentally friendly policies and has a chance of holding some power.

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.

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.

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.
Green for me, but entirely pointless as we're in a shaved chimp in a blue tie constituency.

Green for me too I expect.

The Conservatives are absolute scum, I could only see a win for them six months ago but think they might have fucked it up.

Was going to vote for UKIP as a somewhat protest vote, but changed my mind to Conservative. At the end of the day its either going to be them or Labour, and Labour will just fuck up the economy once again by borrowing , not to mention their stance on immigration and the EU. Don't particularly like Cameron but my vote will be for him

Why do you feel they are scum if you don't mind me asking?

So much of what they have done has affected the people I work with and the things I care about.

- Badger Cull
- Fracking
- ATOS and the aggressive cuts to welfare without proper assessments.
- Forcing a change from Harm Reduction to prevention and "abstinence based recovery" for drug users.
- Their apparent eagerness to remove our human rights.
- Even considering bringing back hunting....

So many more, I know the word Scum is harsh but they really have been an awful party for the people I know.

My personal life will pretty much be unaffected by who gets in but I despise them.

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'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 .

I don't particularly like either the Conservatives or Labour.

I find the Conservatives a bit too Orwellian. They banned facesitting in porn for fucks sake. Facesitting. The horror...

That said I don't trust Labour to not be, simply put, incompetent. I certainly don't trust them with the economy.

The Lib Dems will probably promise to bring some balance to any government they are part of, and then show themselves to be sell swords months down the line.

Either way my constituency is one of the Conservatives safest seats so that's that.

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.
