UK General Election? - March 4th 2010, 06:29 PM

Who do you want to win it? Obviously this is mainly for the Uk'ers here but other people can vote on who they want to win if they know about the parties =D

I can't vote but if I could I'd definitely be voting Liberal Democrats. Free universities are a great thing. I'm not sure if it'll be implemented before I go if they do win but I can hope
Another of their policies I like is the fact that they're planning on letting people register at more than one health practice which'll be good for when I do go to Uni since I can register at one up there as well as still being registered back home.

So who're you backing?

Also what do you think about parties which aren't so serious as the ones above?Example: The Raving Loony Party. I've only heard about one of their policies which is that supposedly they want to bring in a 99p coin. All I can say is that'll get rid of a lot of 1p's

Lib Dem, not going to lie they have my vote entirely for the selfish reason that Labour & Tories will raise tution fees to a rumoured minimum of 7K/year. Lib Dem will most likely freeze them at the set rates, their policy did used to be free tution fees entirely but I believe thats changed with the mammoth amount of debt our country has managed to build up? Might be wrong. But yeah, if it goes up to 7K+ I will having to ask whether I can afford to go. As it stands I will already be 50K in debt when I leave.

Not that my vote matters at all, my area will always be a Tory seat, bloody rich fox hunting people voting for them.

I reckon we should all accept that we'll have David-effing-Cameron running our country by the summer, though. Check out www.mydavidcameron.com
I was actually able to meet George Osbourne and a few other big wigs from the Tory party not too long ago, just in general I don't like their policies. They want co-ops for schools, hospitals, etc where teachers and staff share the profits rather than the clearly logical Labour policy of the profit going back into the organisation.

It's fine to have one.
It's fine to be proud of it.
But please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around.
And PLEASE don't try and shove it down my throat.

As a registered member of the Liberal Democrats, I will be voting for them as usual. Unfortunately, my constituency is a Conservative stronghold, and I don't imagine that will change in this election, since we've never had an MP that wasn't Tory.

According to their website they are still offering free tuition fees despite the economy at the moment.

Lib dems definitely. And Rob, you're a member? Neat. . It's just that the lib dems seem the most...well, not batshit insane party out there.
I hate how the conservatives seem likely to win though...If that happens, we are all so fucked =/. It would be like one step forward and a quadrouple backflip back.

Also...someone voted BNP in the poll. Faaail -_-;;.

EDIT: Currently, Dundee is very SNP/ Labour.......blerg.
