Not that i'd vote for them but Green wasn't even on my postal vote thinger
i cant vote yet, not old enough by like 7 months!! lol ahwell.
I chose not to vote - same shizzle different wrapper.
In short, it's a load of bollocks
^ What Tim said.
i wanted to vote, but my vote went to nottingham, and im in edinburgh atm, and forgot to change everything real quick like
I highly doubt taxes will go down, or even stay the same - they're bound to increase with inflation. Also, I've got a shed load of debt from Uni (thanks to Labour for abolishing the grants system), which I doubt any party is going to make disappear. So to me, it doesn't really matter who runs the country as long as they are vaguely reasonable about their business.
So long as it stays between the three major parties, I have no reason to vote.
Why did you not choose to vote?
Actually, the Lib Dems would solve your fees problem with the 50% tax increase on earnings over £100,000 (Which would include Charles Kennedy, as he would be in that bracket)
Missed out on the vote by 3 days. WOuldnt have voted labour.
i think there should be a not allowed to vote form of not voting, or are there just that many people that don't care.
because I don't particularly have a favorite party, they are all as bad as eachother. None of them have the perfect set of policies for me, and I don't think there's actually any point in me showing my support for someone I don't agree with. It just happens that I disagree with every political party in the UK at the moment, in some shape or form.
If I *had* to vote, I'd vote for the Conservatives, but I don't think Micheal Howard has what it takes to be a good prime minister.
Although not a huge labour fan, I have gone with labour, simply because neither of the other two offer any alternative. Howard has said he would do all these things, but has researched very little, Kennedy I agree with very few of his policies. Labour was my only choice.
I'd like the lib dems to be very successful, but voted labour. They simply have the best chance of keeping the conservatives from winning in this constituancy.
As for not voting because you don't like the major three, that's just idiotic. No-body knows that you dissaprove of the major three, you get lumped in with all the morons who "don't do politics".
Havent yet voted, not sure if i will. IF I do though it'll be a no vote/blank ballot. Similar reasons as Biggles tbh. None of the parties are particulrarly great, it'd be a case of choose the "least bad" which to me seems pointless
Actually it was the Conservatives that started the demise of the Student Grant and the introduction of Loans! I too have loans over my head thanks to the Conservatives!
Also the Conservatives reeked havoc with the London education and council systems in the mid 80s' and messed about with the NHS. So you might not really want to vote Conservative after all
Quite amusing - I selected "not voting", only to be presented with a screen saying "thank you for voting".
It's the little things that keep me happy
i voted but its a secret ballot so im not telling you lot
The way I see it, unless you vote labour, you're wasting your time. I can't see any of ther other parties getting in so the minority that vote for labour will get what they want.
Then do what I did - show your dissatisfaction by spoiling your ballot.
I abhor those that don't vote because they are dissatisfied with the parties on offer. Show them that you aren't happy. Take the time and effort to spoil your ballot.
If everyone who didn't vote for this reason spoiled their ballot then we would get close to the magical percentage required for reform (40% from memory - someone please correct/verify that) and we all end up better off.
