For the first time since 2010 I'm voting Labour.
My conscience wont allow me to vote Lib Dem after what they did 2010-2015. Any idea they were a progressive centre or centre left party went out the window and i cant forgive them for propping up Osborne and his cuts, cuts we're still seeing now. Now that was class war in its ugliest guise.
I'd vote anyway that would get rid of the conservatives and their awful austerity policies.
It's worse than the Thatcher years, and yet still people vote for them.
I was always a Labour voter, but they won't get in in my constituency, so I'll vote SNP like last time and then hope for independence as soon as possible (but that's another discussion altogether..)
Also if we have a coalition government shouldn't we expect the government programme will be a merger of the partners' manifestos accepting that advertised red lines should be honoured during negotiations.
There is a lot of time before June 8th, although if May does not debate and manages to avoid adverse comments because of this, which is unlikely, there will be less movement in the polls than usually found in a general election.
I would say that whilst everyone benefits from the changes in the personal allowance the low paid were the major winners. Along with to guarantee that there was no screw job of Cameron calling for an election mid term the fixed term Parliament is a great idea with the two caveats that if the house agrees (2/3rds in favour) or there is a loss in confidence by the house in the government an early election can be triggered.
I would also argue that they may have reined in some of the excesses of the Tories as Clegg did refuse an EU referendum for what he saw as an internal Tory issue along with apart from a rainbow alliance involving the majority of the remaining parties - the other options were a cautious minority government or a rerun very quickly like the two elections in 74
Ensure you are registered to have the opportunity to vote/not vote/intentionally spoil your vote. Deadline is 22nd May
For general elections registered adults (18yo+) who are British, Irish or Commonwealth citizens living in the UK or British citizens living overseas who have registered in the last 15 years AND there is no legal reason they have been excluded from voting.
If you are not local to your constituency for whatever reason there are also deadlines for registering a postal vote or voting by proxy.
So what do we have in Theresa May, the woman who will be the next PM. A woman who always keeps her promises has called an election she promised not to, in order to obtain a mandate she already has for a policy she said was a bad idea. Great start eh?
The UK has never been a socialistically inclined country. Labour won 3 elections in a row because they occupied the centre ground. They moved further to the left under Ed Miliband and lost the last election - what makes you think that lurching even further to the left will make the result of this election any different?
To win an election, you have to be able to appeal to the electorate as a whole. I just don't feel that Corbyn does this.
If the result of a poll of posters on this page was released Labour would be elected. I was hoping to read some informed debate, but it looks like it's all tactical voting on here. Let me know if anyone talks about policy.
Creating a hostile tax environment simply because a certain percentage have more money than anyone else isn't the answer, particularly in light of Brexit. Having a tax friendly environment is more likely to encourage domestic entrepreneurs but also, attract more offshore investment as well.
an increased majority for the tories with brexit is probably the worst thing core labour could of hoped for
Total Fantasy , I hope with all my heart that this election is the total and complete demise of the Labour Party , with a huge massive thankyou to Mr Corbyn , he has to be the most diabolical excuse for a human being there ever has been , All we need now to complete the joy would be to see Tony Blair prosecuted and jailed for the rest of his natural . Its almost embarrassing that his wife is almost a scoucer ,??? Bring on UKIP and Nigel Farange. I think Ms May will be a very good negotiator for the UK in Brexit Talks ,I believe she will get the UK out of the sinking EU and put ore money back into British hands. I also hopes she STOPS ALL immigration for 5 yrs and re=assesses the situation
Think UK FIRST
