Only 3 results are in.

All Labour but there are all in Labour safe seats so no surprises yet.

Well except that UKIP seem to be coming 2 or 3rd.

I wondered the same - the only thing I read so far is that the Conservatives are doing much better than they should be, or are predicted to anyhow.
That's depressing if they're like our conservatives but hey-ho.

I'm wondering if the UKIP vote in Labour seats isn't tactical, basically Conservative voters looking for an alternative way of defeating the Labour candidate. That sort of thing has been predicted.

No no no no noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

They are conservative for us. For you guys they are likely more liberal than your democrats. In the USA they would probably be burned for being too "commie"


Our main parties are very much more central than right/left.

You owe me half a beer and a cloth to wipe the spat beer from my monitor.

Agreed our conservatives are not as right wing.

I'm not sure what the comparison would be?

That's an interesting question. I have no idea as my area is always a ConLib/UKIP choice...Labour are always after them, but I can imagine how in a Labour stronghold some dyed in the wool Tories could see that as their protest/tactical vote.
Interesting question.

He did, but he was one of the major pushers for making it illegal to mention homosexuality exists in sex ed until a few years back.

If these exist polls are to be believed we are completely and utterly #ed.

I'm a disabled person due to being run over by a car a couple of years back, I have two degrees (Applied Maths and Journalism) and worked in Unis for years prior to it - under the current goverment I had aid slashed to £5k a year to live off and Tories want to scrap another £12bn from the disabled.

Thanks Tory voters I'msoon be forced to starve to death because of idiots buying their hateful rhetoric. That's compassionate Conservatism for you.

10,000+ disabled dead thanks to IDS and they still want to kill even more of us. Lovely.

That was supposed to be funny. It's too true to be funny.

I don't believe you are going to starve to death anytime soon. How much do you pay to be online on ATS?
Drama queen.
Shameful in my opinion as it belittles the situation of genuine starving folk in the world...who are not on ATS.
Lame.

If I was starving I would contemplate cancelling my broadband, selling my laptop and heading of to the nearest coop skip at this time of night.

Each to there own though I suppose.

Yep, the only reason I would starve to death if I was existing solely on any benefits in the UK is because I made the stupid choice of choosing something that doesn't keep me alive over buying food.
#ing drama queen in my mind. Lame.

Nothing as it's included in current rent - under the proposals I'll be homeless, no longer to afford meds I need to keep me alive due to severe epillepsy and dead in a few months.

When they failed me at PIP I was grarnted 19p a fortnight to live off including rent etc... see how long you can live off that if you want to prove me wrong. Under IDS changes if you appeal a decision you're banned from all welfare for six months and under 25s are banned from claiming any welfafre.

Pull your head out the sand and look at the reality. These are cold, hard facts.

'The United Kingdom has become the first country to face a high-level inquiry by the United Nations committee responsible for oversight of disability rights into charges of “grave or systemic violations” of disabled people’s rights'

But thanks for demonstrating typical Tory views that those with terminal illness are 'drama queens'.
