That's the box that says 'I am a cunt' right?

Lib Dem is the only sensible vote. Some chinless wonder likened them to BNP despite the fact LD will get 25% of the vote when the BNP get....emmm....0.5%....and they are total shitmunchers. And they collectively fucked a penguin once. I have pictures. It's true. Nick Griffin put his cock in a flightless bird.

Uncouth it may be, but I've got a fucking point.

I like Lib Dem on some of their policies, especially their human rights record, yet I could never agree to their economic policies. People should be taxed as low as possible as the government can save lots of money by getting it's fingers out of most people's business.

Bollocks. People in general are thick as fuck. If they didn't have folk telling them what to do then life would be like Saw IV. Some cock sponge called Quentin would be feasting on your liver and deciding not to build a road from Nottingham to Harrogate cause the shooting there at this time of year is frightful. I'll kill them all. Maybe. I can't be arsed, but they're still fucking massive floppy donkey cocks.

I will be voting Tory. George Osborne is absolutely fine to be honest. Several intelligent businessmen who are cleverer than most people have come out in support of George Osborne's National Insurance plans. Vince Cable is overrated and actually quite thick. All of Labour are thick, especially the complete idiot that is Ed Balls.

Well you've won me over...

It's no surprise that Business men have come out in support of the Conservative chancellor... They are after all the party of business. They will always stand up for the business owners and therefore will get support from a lot of them based on that.

Would you like to tell me exactly why Vince Cable is thick? What has he done that makes him thick? I'm curious. And All of Labour are thick? wow is that a sweeping and untrue statement.

I'm really against the conservatives as a party but I would never say they were all thick as it's not true. I personally quite like Ken Clarke and think that William Hague is a very intelligent man, more as well but I can't be bothered to go on. I just oppose their views. I do think George Osbourne doesn't really know what he's doing as he's done nothing to convince me otherwise.

As Moon said, of course they're going to back a policy that saves them money. They don't want to be paying more NI than they do because it will hit their profits.

I love the Tories saying they will raise £6bn by cutting government waste. How exactly will they do that because their policies don't amount to much at the moment. Not only that but they are really going to hurt pensioners and lower income earners by bringing forward the raising of the state pension age and 'restoring the link between the basic state pension and average earnings.' Nice to see them hurting the lowest earners again!

I am more than likely voting for the Lib Dems. I don't like Clegg that much but I think he has certainly improved in my estimation in the past few months despite being clearly overshadowed by Cable, who I agree would be a good choice for chancellor. He's probably the most straight talking, perceptive of the three with clearly outlined aims for the future.

I cannot bring myself to vote tory for all their fictional promises about cutting the deficit with money that doesn't exist. Their campaigns about death taxes have the stench of the tactics of the US Republicans, and their rhetoric about 'Broken Britain' is a crock of reactionary, nationalistic bullshit. Labour it should be self-evident why not to vote for them, not least the fact that a clown like Blair can get into power.

Anyobody who voluntarily wants to pay 50% tax deserves to be kicked in the bollocks.



50% on high earners is fair enough in this climate. Also the Lib Dems are the only party who will cut Trident - an easy £100 billion saving that the other two won't commit to

I'm assuming it's going to be around the Labour 150k mark or maybe a bit less.

That figure seems a bit high. This is one of those policies that I'm not sure I agree with the Lib Dems on. I think we need a nuclear deterrent, maybe not now but in the future it might be needed. Better to be safe than sorry imo.

I hate to say this but I think you're wrong. No country really wants a nuclear war, the closest we've come is arguably the Cuban missile crisis and in that both the Russians and the Americans did everything they could to avoid having to use nuclear weapons against each other with both sides making concessions that they did not want to. I think we're much more at danger of a bomb simply being set off in the middle of a city rather than a missile launch. I don't quite know how we can build a system to stop this type of bombing, and I don't even think that it's that likely. I'm all for disarmament, I think someone needs to start it, as no country seems willing to disarm unless all other countries follow suit.

As for the 50% tax on high earners I am massively in favour of this, I know it's easy to say not earning anywhere near enough, but I hope I'd be in favour if I was too, I honestly believe that those who are well off in society should help those that are not, build a fairer society and all that...

Nuclear disarmament is just one big prisoner's dilemma, so I cant ever see complete nuclear disarmament happening. Sure it is in the best interests of all countries to disarm, but no one wants to be the first to get rid of their nuclear weapons (and with countries like Russia, China, India and Pakistan I cant ever see them giving up their nuclear weapons).

I agree with you that most countries do not want a nuclear war (it is a weapon of last resort) and at the moment we may not need a nuclear deterrent. But if ten years down the line circumstances change and we dont have a nuclear deterrent, then we are pretty screwed. I would rather not take that chance.

Hi there, late to the party and all, but I'll probably just vote for Green or something. I can't really support any of the main three.

I would say make certain you carefully red their manifesto before deciding to vote Green. It has some good points, some extreme naivity, and some laugh out loud moments and I tend to think if there are things to laugh at in a serious political document that is not a good thing.

Yeah, but they aren't going to win the seat. I guess I could always spoil my vote.

This to me perfectly encapsulates the way the Tory party will say and promise anything, so long as they don't have to explain how they will do it. 'Vague' seems to be the main Tory policy.

I'm another who will be voting Lib Dem (for the first time). I've always voted Labour but my conscience simply won't allow me to this time around (it also helps that Hull is staunchly Labour!); and there is simply no way on God's green earth that I will vote for this current Tory party. Cameron is a snake in wolf's clothing still suckling on Thatcher's withered teats, and Osbourne is laughable.

Stranger things have happened. I know they have quite a voice in Norwich City Council and some of their proposals,if they ever pass, will kill the city which considering it is not in the best condition is not a difficult task. I tend to believe that a lot of people will vote outside of the main parties this time due to feeling disenfranchised by them which could potentially lead to some strange wins. That said i think it is going to be the lowest turn out ever, I would imagine in the high 20% or so.
