So its a few months now until the general elections in the UK, you guys know who you're voting for?
The Green Party lol
No seriously, i think i will.I did some work for them, and i was very impressed
im glad im not old enough to vote in the UK yet, too many decisions lol
They're all the same really, politicians, when it boils down to it. But i do agree with the ethics of the Green Party,but i usually don't get round to voting.
I voted green last time around for something or the other, dunno if it was for the local government or national though, it was my first vote and I didn't really know anything, just that the greens were meant to be the party for environmental issues, so I voted for them.
I'm going to read the manifestos of each party this time around, but I already know there's no way in hell I'm voting for labour or liberal democrats, so I won't bother with that.
If voting actually changed anything, they would male it illegal.
Yes they are. I think they used to be the 'standing joke' party, but now environmental issues have become far more serious, they are taken more seriously.I did some research at their conference, last year, and i met some fantastic, genuine, commited, people.
I don't really have much faith in it either, I'm already convinced the tories will win, but hey, whats half an hour of your time to tick a box... if it even takes that long. Thats including getting there, etc.
You know the Greens want to abolish the monarchy? I've just been having a read through, I don't think I'll be voting for them either, despite there stance on the monarchy.
They claim to have a plan to create a million jobs by creating an industry for reusable energy, but there stance on immigration is too lenient, whats the point in creating a million jobs when you let another milllion in? And how can they claim to be pro-environment, when more immigration means more people, hence more buildings everywhere (building on green built near me, and elsewhere around the country) and more pollution. They won't be getting my vote.
I don't really know anything about economics, but that don't add up.
I have'nt read their manifesto yet, but if what you say is true, i won't be voting for them either. Immigration is my 'pet beef' ( sorry to all you immigrants out there), but its way beyond a joke now, in this country. Btw i'm not against living in a multicultural soceity
I shall just abstain from voting.
I dont vote for anyone. They all lie, this country is doomed anyway! The only good thing they could do is to bring ALL british troops home, but they never will!
Many do lie, yes, but there are options other than the main 3 (the LibLabCon) who have never been given a chance.
You arent going to chnge my mind. in the 3 yrs i have been elegable to vote, i havent and wont.
Any particular reason?
Cos 99% are over-paid snobs who want to run this country into the ground!!
I read the Economist, a reputable British paper, and it strongly believe the Torries will win. It also seems to view the Liberal Democrats more favorably too.
Of course the tories will win. Thats a forgone conclusion. Leadership just swings between the two, over the decades.
Always know exactly who I'm voting for and here's a clue IT AINT TORY!! :dry:
