    You had a look and thought, I know what this forum needs today, another “who to vote for” thread. ๐Ÿ™„

    The Greens are essentially left wing arse hats, and on that basis I’m oot.

    to be fair… there wasn’t one on the first page when posted, and I’m a bit too jaded with this gaff for bothering to look at the second page..

    can anyone point me in the direction of todays most longwinded and disgruntled ‘who to vote for’ thread then perhaps?

    Greens are lovely, but they are a bit like an environmental BNP. They have no sensible policy, just lots of nice ideas. Main plans for education involve solar panels on the school roof and environmental science lessons. Like I say, nice and good ideas, but not politically viable in the current climate.

    Did you manage to choose between UKIP and the BNP then?

    I hope you’re not saying the BNP have lots of nice ideas. I assume not, but it seems to be implied [/pedant]

    It is clearly implied and they clearly are saying the greens and the BNP have good ideas – whether they meant to say that i do not know

    What absolute tosh, you could have actually read their policies before commenting.

    The Green Party are coming out with policies that would/should be being proposed by a Labour Party actually worthy of the name. But seeing as nowadays theyre just Tories with nicer smiles, then a Green is the only reslistic option for us pinko commie hand wringers.

    I’ve voted for them, and I know plenty of other former labour voters who have, including my dad who’s voted labour all his life, but just can’t bring himself to do it any more, as they’re a bunch of clueless muppets!

    …with a handful of outspoken lefties, and that as middle englanders you lot make up a lot of the electorate that can actually be bothered to get off their arses and tick the box so..

    Is anyone doing the responsible thing and voting Green or are you all gonna piss about wasting your democratic right with analysing manifesto lies from the two Eton Mafia teams, ‘tactical’ votes, shallow cycling based votes and kneejerk nonsense..?

    Can’t say I take much notice of policy promises, they’ll all back out of em if needed and what hits the streets is more likely to be fruits of experts, analysts etc and people who actually know wtf their doing regardless of the politicians in power.

    I do however like a general statement of intend and the greens are a bit more likely to leave a few fields unbuilt for my kids to run around in so get my vote.

    TBH though being popular on this forum (which they seem to be) is the kiss of death, it’ll be a UKIP landslide.

    Are you talking about local councils or MEPs?
    I’m not too sure why anyone even votes for MEPs in the first place. You may as well be voting for who goes in the big brother house for all the power they have.
    Still, you’ve got to admire the audacity of the scam in duping the public into thinking the democratic process they’re participating in has anything to do with governance.

    I voted UKIP in the European elections (just to scare the mainstream parties) and Conservative in the locals. I know I may get barred from this neo-Marxist forum as a consequence, but I’ll risk it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The advantage of voting green is that is provides a draw to the left/environmental concerns to counter the UKIP drag to the right. They may not get elected in too many seats (although there is a green councillor in the constituency down the road from me) but it gets the green agenda onto the plates of the main parties.

    To be honest the greens are the closest to my political views anyway – but then again I am a swivel eyed left wing…

    I voted green. I don’t think they would make a great govt (local, national or eu) but I do think that we’d benefit from a greater focus on environmental issues in all areas. Plus in my area they were just behind ukip last time (iirc) for the last seat in the area.

    Well, if enough people do that it may lead to the mainstream party policies shifting in a UKIP-ish direction.

    Is that the kind of thing you’re after?

    This thread is clearly ignorant of the Plaid Cymru option, or it would have closed many posts ago.

    I’ll be voting green again, as a leftie I think it’s the best option. Mind you I voted lib dem at the last general election as clegg is my mp, so what do I know.

    Voted Green reluctantly, the problem being with them supporting Yes in Scotland, but to be frank I stood staring at the options on the ballot paper and there really weren’t any.
