I'm going to go down Ladbrokes and placing a bet on a Conservative/Labour coalition. They're by far the closest two parties in terms of manifesto and policies and even the same M&S Autograph shirts.

Because Britain First shout it a lot?

What about the Tories voting against a bill to protect people from prosecution under the official secrets act for testifying against people accused of historic child abuse?

He might be actually voting for them as well. I don't necessarily think some people are that concerned about paedophile rings unless Muslims are involved. I don't know the stats in terms of a comparison between online paedophile rings and paedophile gangs but I know that when the online rings are outed they tend to be people who aren't Muslims, yet the Islamophobes from wherever they might be don't seem to be that interested in those paedophiles for some reason.

A guid dram
some have been saying C & B that Lib Dems may not do as badly as polled due to the 'silent vote' people who are sort've ashamed to say they would vote for them due to how unpopular they currently are................but that we'll see.

I have voted Labour backed on the view they will not give ground to SNP, I shall at present believe Miliband on that stance, but if they do backtrack then tory will get my vote next time as I'm sure will happen with others. At the end of the day Labour should be able to easily put through their stuff without worrying about giving ground to SNP at all because SNP then just gets a choice of Labour manifesto stuff or tory Manifesto stuff and then we can see if they do back their own mouth about only making sure to keep tory out.

Do not think Labour can give ground to SNP anyway as there would be enough rebellious English Labour MP's would side with tory/Lib Dem MP's to block SNP stuff if that happened.

I will give the SNP a lot of credit though as they have ran the best campaign by a long long way and clearly touched the right notes with people north of the border................to me I think a lot up there are voting for the wrong reasons and for a party they'd not usually vote for, but the SNP has brilliantly worked the Scottish people well..............I am hoping though if Labour get in that will give Scotland abit of a wake up call and kick SNP down abit when they find all these promises and speeches were rubbish.

I'm not interested in whether the SNP can get all that they want in a potential coalition with Labour, but if they can help kick the Tories out of Downing St. I'm all for that.

Questions remain on Ed though, whether he can become a real leader of the UK, whether he can take and keep stands on his opinions and whether he'll be strong enough to be a long term Prime Minister. I always said his brother was the better option, so lets see how he gets on. I'm feeling confident of Labour ousting the Tories though.

Ive voted Labour. Wont make any difference here anyway, as its a pretty safe Labour seat anyway.

Has anyody used this site btw? https://voteforpolicies.org.uk/ The idea being you are presented with the policies rather than the personalities to help you choose if you're not sure. Thankfully my results ended up split pretty much 3 ways between Labour, Green and Lib Dem, so what I thought. Interestingly, it also presents you with the results from everyone who has used it, and according to 780k users, its 24.8% Labour, 21.7% Green, 21.1% Lib Dem, 17.1% UKIP, and 15.3% Tory. Very interesting given I cant see the actual votes going that way.

EDIT should point out this is only in England, you choose at the start which country you're voting in, so it presents you with the right parties.

Voted at 7-15 this morning putting my X next to The Lib Dems. Don't fire abuse at me as it's a choice between them or Tory where i live in Wells, Tessa Munt is our sitting MP after beating the Tory who got caught up in the expenses scandal 5 years ago by charging us for payment of horse shit for his roses. :lol:

My place was about as close as it could have got last time around.

Party Candidate Votes %
Conservative Mark Spencer 19,211 39.2
Labour Emilie Oldknow 18,997 38.8

That's got me thinking slightly about going Labour, but still reckon I'll go Green. People talk about a wasted vote but I reckon voting for someone you don't really want to is a bigger waste. I wouldn't feel right... got to go with my heart really and go Green.

I think.

Agree.

If everyone did the same as you, the gaps would be closed significantly and a message would be sent to the main two, not a waste in my view.

Went for Labour in the end as I'm in my Uni constituency and that's a marginal between Labour/Lib Dems, although there's some suggestion that Greens could put up a fight although they've fallen away a bit since 2010. Had I been back home however, I may have voted UKIP to send a message to Labour more than anything, who from my point of view sit on their laurels a bit as they know it's a safe seat and has been for the past 70 years.

But the problem remains that people will not do that under a first past the post system. They feel that too much is at stake.

I'm also one of those that doesn't have a staunch affiliation with any particular party, although I do tend to fall closer to the left on the majority of issues. I voted Labour this time around.

Labour constituency, Green ward.

Ran over a Tory placard that had fallen on the road last night. Stopped, reversed and ran it over again. Made me feel really fuzzy and tingly inside.

Lib dems last time, Labour this. I live in a Tory strong hold so I very much doubt that will change.

I paused for a second in the booth. Considered Green. But then bit the bullet and went for Labour. Most left-wing leader in a generation and a viable option for disposing of the Tories.

Same. I'm regretting it a bit, I don't particularly like Luciana Berger but the Greens, on a national level, seem a bit mad. I voted for them on the council though, they are good locally.

Doing your civic duty there Pliny. You're a good egg.

Bollocks! :bang: God help the sick and disabled and those on low pay who get in work benefits. Fox hunting will be legal again and the rich will get richer on the backs of the poorest in society. :ffs:

See thats the problem with our voting system really. This election more than any other previously probably has called into question using the first past the post system. As much as I hate UKIP, they received more than twice as many votes than SNP, but have one seat to their 56. Yes we should still vote on who governs us locally, but should we be voting for that when there is a national election? Especially when votes will be skewed in a lot of places due 'safe' seats, which will often alter the way people vote. Okay the Tories still have the most votes and have won unfortunately, but while doing it on seats, its an absolute trouncing. In terms of actual votes, they have less than 6% more than Labour.
