two parts to this question.

1) Ideally, who would you vote for if the General Election were tomorrow?

2)If you are a tactical voter who would you vote for instead?

So me:
1)Lib Dem

I honestly don't know. I suppose I'll have to listen to some manifesto -lies- pledges in the run up to the election.

Luka - you are very welcome to ignore me - many do!

Luka - It looks pretty settled over the uk for the next few days. Not necessarily always sunny though, some drizzle and light rain with the SW seeing the best of the sunshine. I think temps will be a bit warmer than it was overnight last night with the increased cloud cover.

1. Ideally, a party committed to socialist principles which I share

2. Don't really need to consider tactical voting, but will probably vote for my local Labour MP who will probably get reelected even if most of his colleagues don't anyway. I haven't actually voted for him yet because I voted Socialist Alliance and then Respect, but I don't think I'm convinced by anyone else in this election. The Green Party candidate is a sort of friend, but I will probably go back to voting Labour.

I'm with Bumper;

Lib Dem (if i had to, which i would)

pugsandseals Thu 19-Nov-09 20:26:00

1. Lib Dem
2. Conservative

Why on earth would anybody want to vote Mr Brown back in? All the labour ideas of the last 15 years have taken away choice to everyone who receives education, healthcare and the like!

The more that vote conservative the more chance we have of being rid of Mr Brown!!!

2) Labour

I was Labour born and bred, my dad would have us driving round town on open top candidate buses when we were kids on election day, shouting Maggie, Maggie Maggie, out, out out. I think he would haunt me if I ever went over to the dark side grin

On a serious note though, the tories were in power all through my chilhood and school years and when my dad was out of work in the 80s we were very hard up even though my mum worked to keep us afloat and pay the mortgage, my education was rubbish and quite frankly nobody cared as we were only factory fodder for all the non exsitant factories.

My children are much better off now and have a better education and Things have definatly improved since Labour came to power.

Teamcullen; Me too! 'Dig Deep for the Miners' stickers all over house! Feel v sorry for GB

1) I will vote Conservative because I really like and respect my local MP and he is genuinely the best person for the job.

2) If I were to vote tactically I would vote Lib Dem but even that would be a waste in the Surrey stronghold I live in.

In an ideal world I would like to vote Labour but a) It is pointless here and b) I think we need a change in government (any government) after a reasonable time frame.

And i'm not a tactical voter. Shame I don't live in the UK anymore and couldn't vote in the general elections grin
