This is basically the peoples say if you are British and want to say which party you want to be voted in then this is the place.

Remember the parties are:
Conservatives
Labour
Liberal Democrats
Green Party

Personally I want the greens to get in but they never will so i’ll just say labour- Gordon Brown

I’m stuck between Conservatives and Lib Dems.

From the four you’ve given, I’d like to point out that only Labour and the Tories have shown they can run a country, the Lib Dems are large enough to be given a shot, but the Green Party would have us living in caves to cut back on our use of resources. I am certainly not going to vote for Labour because they have proven they are incapable of looking after the most precious digital data (drivers’ licenses, addresses of army personnel’s families and bank account details of all families with children), yet still want to take our identities from us and put them on a database – a database that government employees will presumably make copies of on CDs and leave in car parks.

Nick Clegg has impressed me, especially with his speech earlier a couple of weeks ago, but Cameron does seem to have a more realistic plan than the others.

Well i appreciate your views, but i beg to differ because i feel camerons polices are ridiculous! How exactly are they supposed to be achieved and to make matters worse he wants to tax everything! The green party I agree have not got many Experties but i feel they deserve a shot at running the country. They can’t be as bad as labour have been (I forgot about Alistar Darling losing the Data) I don’t want them in but I don’t want the Cons in either so I say GIVE LIB DEMS A CHANCE and THE GREEN PARTY.
Considering I can’t VOTE because I’m too young NO ONE CARES WHAT I THINK!

TO be hounst with you, the recent british paries, if voted in, will just carry on the policies of the preveouse party, because they are to wishy-washy. The don’t want to upset anyone, and so just leave goverment how it is. maybe 1 major thing happens every 10 years (eg ban on smoking in public places)

i think i would like the green party in, purly because i’d like to see some real changes being made for once.

Which of Cameron’s policies do you think are ridiculous? They actually want to give people tax cuts, just that after Labour have been in power for so long only giving half the cash to various projects (hence wasting money – projects won’t succeed without all the money they need), there is not enough money left to do so immediately – Cameron has been honest and not made unrealistic promises. I would wait until closer to the election before picking up on too many of any party’s pledges though.

I read in the Sunday Times that the Tories had 43% popularity, Labour on 27% and Lib Dems on 16% or thereabouts. I don’t think any other parties are popular (or well known) enough to be good leaders – they haven’t had a sizeable presence in politics for a long time.

Do not forget also that despite continuous public polls showing the vast majority of the population wanting a referendum to be called on the EU, both Labour and the Lib Dems are hesitant to do so since they wish to join the EU more completely. In the case of Labour, we were promised one, but now since the terms have changed slightly, Brown does not look like he’s about to call one. In the case of the Lib Dems, Clegg voted against a referendum, though I do not know where he stands on the issue as of now.

I’d like to ask, which of the Green Party’s policies appeal to you?

AACCEE, Clegg has promised change as strongly as anyone could in his speech a couple of weeks ago. I’d like to ask you the same question, which of Green Party’s policies appeal to you?

I agree that parties will continue a lot of the previous party’s policies, it wouldn’t be a good idea to shake everything up all at once.

The Green Parties whole idea is Good. This is that “The Green Party aims to create a just, equitable and sustainable society. We focus our efforts primarily, though not exclusively, through the electoral system.”

They are building up a library of A5 documents called policy pointers which are intended both as introductions to GP policies and as downloadable leaflets which can be used by activists for campaigning.

The Manifesto For a Sustainable Society contains all the policies agreed at successive Green Party conferences. These are their main detailed policies which are elucidated and illustrated from time to time in news releases, topical comment, reports etc.

Yeah, i just want change. Britian is moving down hill fast enough for the working class to feel it, but just slow enough for the middle/upper class to rise above it. in my opion britian is on it’s way down, and there’s noone who offers solutions. they only care about the 5 yeears they might be in power. not the 70 year long life spans of the brittish public.

Bob, you do realise that the Green Party adheres to socialist values, don’t you?

Labour is the only party with the political nous to run this country but not with the present leader! Gordon Brown was reviled but was probably the greatest post war leader; this country would be in a far worse state were it not for his decisiveness at the first hint that things had gone ‘tits up’. So for me there is only Labour ; the other parties fade into insignificance . Think before you vote!

Yeah, only 90% of the horses had legged it before Golden Gordon closed the stable door which his party had happily left wide open. Agree with your opinion of the third most popular Miliband, though.

On the (very old 4-year necro-tastic) topic, I’ve found myself in the quite pleasant position of not supporting anyone at the moment.
