Well normally UKIP but i haven't decided yet ,i might have to vote Tory to make sure i keep out Labour but i don't really like Cameron either.

Usually UKIP but might go with BNP this time and you can't call me racist as I am well and truly of 'immigrant stock'!

Rest of family and folk have spoken to are more BNP and can think of 10 close friends who say they'll vote BNP also and they have never had anything to do with the party just terrified of what is happening in the UK.

I have a daughter in law who will vote Labour but she watches 'things' on TV and I don't think she's ever read a book yet!

People like you are the reason we had labour in the first place


If you can be bothered take a look at the manifestos at how different the parties policies really are.

Then you may find that you either agree with a party more than another.

Although this has hardy been mentioned this campaign, the real question is do you want to retain the pound or sell out to Europe?

Just think....

If any party other than conservatives get in then some of your hard earned money will go to places like Greece in taxes.

Think that's fair?

Voting conservative will ensure we don't join the euro, and if the balance of power were to change it would be far too late to join as the euro would have self destructed before then.

There are alot of other reasons why you should vote conservative too. The other largest reasons are under the conservatives

Our tax burden will be less
The public sector reduced
The number of immigrants controlled to a level we can manage
Head teachers get control back of their schools
Our deficit lowered through government internal saving
We won't get the jobs tax that will cripple the country next year
We make the saving now instead of continue to waste this year.

Etc Etc etc...

The Conservatives have go it right and that's reason enough to vote conservative, regardless of how you feel about Cameron.

Peace out,

Korg.

I still have not yet decided, all have certain policys that are good and loads that are horrific.

I agree with UKIP that the UK needs to go nuclear
I agree with labours immigration policy, havin a cap on immigration will only cause problems because the UK needs immigration to survive, and the number needed every year changes, and constantly in flux through out the year.

The only party i dissagree with completly are the torries. For a start trying to make compulsery national service (non millitery, excuse spelling) has shown me that they are a no go area. In fact the only reason they made it volenterily is because they were told it would be shooting themselves in the foot.

The reality is that it's either going to be a hung parliment or torries.

My vote is undecided, but more than likley will be a spoiled ballot paper.

(snippet from national service proposal article)
Commentators consider the merits of David Cameron's plan for voluntary "national citizen service" for all 16-year-olds.

The Times editorial says the shift in policy from compulsory to voluntary is telling and suggests that this could exclude people on lower incomes but could also provide a much-needed celebration of coming-of-age:

The reason Labour got in was because people like me voted for change , sick of a corrupt and sleaze ridden Government , we bought into Blair and the promise that things could only get better .
Now people are doing exactly the same with Cameron , history repeats .
Then people like me came to realize that they are all the same , fill you with promises one minute and then shaft you the next .
Now people like me have smartened up , we choose to opt out of the process as we have realized that the people you see and voted for aren't necessarily the people calling the shots .
They have their masters as we have ours , its just they get paid a lot more for doing their masters bidding , we just foot the bill .

I see you can only reply to one part of my post.

You bought into Blair because you voted for a person and didn't bother to look into their policies. This is not a competition of personalities, it's about the future of the country.

Are you really saying you disagree with the points I raised above??

If the manifesto is not carried out, I will vote against them next time, this time however the Conservative policies are exactly what this country needs.

Political manifestos are not set in stone and should be regarded as no more than an election wish list and subject to change.
David Cameron is a product of the system that has caused this country so much damage , I don't see how his election can be good news for anyone other than global corporations and the elite .

David Cameron


The son of stockbroker Ian Donald Cameron and his wife Mary Fleur Mount (daughter of Sir William Mount, 2nd Baronet),[4] David Cameron was born in London, and raised at Peasemore in Berkshire.[5] He has a brother, Alec and two sisters, Tania and Clare.[6] His father was born at Blairmore School near Huntly in Scotland.[7] The school was built by his great-great-grandfather, Alexander Geddes,[8] who had made a fortune in the grain business in Chicago and had returned to Scotland in the 1880s.[9] The Cameron family were originally from the Inverness area of the Scottish Highlands.[10] Cameron's forebears have a long history in finance. His father Ian was a director of estate agent John D Wood, and the stockbrokers Panmure Gordon, where his grandfather and great-grandfather also worked.[6] One great-grandfather, Arthur Francis Levita (brother of Sir Cecil Levita),[11] of Panmure Gordon stockbrokers, and great-great-grandfather Sir Ewen Cameron,[10] London head of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank, played key roles in discussions led by the Rothschilds with the Japanese central banker (later Prime Minister) Takahashi Korekiyo concerning the selling of war bonds during the Russo-Japanese war.[12] Another great-grandfather, Ewen Allan Cameron, was a senior partner with Panmure Gordon stockbrokers and served on the Council for Foreign Bondholders,[13] and the Committee for Chinese Bondholders (set up by the then-Governor of the Bank of England Montagu Norman in November 1935).[14] One of Cameron's ancestors is King William IV (1765-1837), uncle of Queen Victoria Cameron is a direct descendant of King William IV (great x 5 grandfather) and his mistress Dorothea Jordan (and thus 5th cousin, twice removed of Queen Elizabeth II)[nb 1] He is the nephew of Sir William Dugdale, once the chairman of Aston Villa Football Club, and Birmingham-born documentary film-maker Joshua Dugdale is his cousin.

We had labour all these years as no one in the tories would stand upto blair, look who ran against blair, giving him free elections. The tories did there best to lose against blair.

Who ever wins at least its not him anymore.

What utter nonsense. No UK party would take us into the euro without a referendum, because they'd never get elected ever again. The UK population would never vote yes to it either, even if the pound was on the point of collapse (which has almost happened under the Tories before): nationalism trumps the complexities of finance every time.
Remember the last time the Tories said they'd cut tax? In fact the tax burden increased for most of us. What will happen is the same as last time: we'll pay more & the rich will pay less as a proportion of income. The Institute of Fiscal Studies have said that all 3 parties haven't explained where they'll get all of their proposed spending cuts from. They rate the LibDems best at 25%. How on earth are the Tories going to pay down the deficit without taxing us to do so? There is no way that "efficiency savings" alone can pay off nearly a trillion in debt & reduce ongoing borrowing. In fact, the Financial Times have calculated that the Tories will cost us on average a fifth more than the other 2 parties. Unsurprisingly, the FT think this is good. Of course they do. Who reads it, you?
Understand that whoever gets in, we are going to get hammered for our money. The difference is that Vince Cable plans to grow the economy by putting cash back in all our pockets by removing the 1st £10k from income tax. This generates a market for goods & services.
The Tories plan is to put money into the richest's hands & hope they invest it in the UK economy. Sadly, that wont happen, because in a risky time, people invest in the safest options, not entrepreneurial ventures. We've seen this happen before, both here & in the USA.

I voted LibDem by post. I dont particularly want Nick Clegg as PM but I do want Vince Cable as chancellor.
Being realistic, all I can really hope for is a hung parliament. Sadly, it'd have to be a pact with Labour to get much LibDem policy through & I want Labour punished for taking us into America's wars.

I do think the turnout for Voters will once again be a let down, I got a feeling we are going to see Labour win the Election. If this is the case the UK will be the next country where the public say "NO MORE" get used to whats happening in Greece if Labour win, because it will be happening right on your doorstep.

I agree, but unless you've spotted an appetite for a revolution in the UK, which I haven't, then the only people offering any meaningful electoral reform are the LibDems.
