Voting in tomorrow's (theoretical) general election
Lib Dems are very constrained by being in a coalition so for that I give them the benefit of the doubt. And locally, they seem pretty sensible (and pro-cyclist).
Unlike the Tories, who are complacent and happy to concrete over the entire county. Labour is not really an option for me. I might as well just not bother voting, even though I quite like Mr Milliband.
So Lib Dem.Posted 4 years agobinnersSubscriber
Hmmmmmm. With an eye on my political future, I’m going to be pragmatic and rename the new Ministry for Pastry Products and, in my new era of inclusiveness, throw open the sausage roll option to vegetarians and citizens of all races – free pie or pasty of your choice! Made in the countries finest bakeries! From the very best ingredients!

No Ernie, the last post was not posted on the wrong thread (but I imagined that it could be misinterpreted – it was not a criticism of Hollande per se, he has enough of that already!I was merely illustrating my previous point that there is v littleto choose between major parties in the UK or elsewhere. The right and the left are essentially doing the same thing, their policies are broadly the same and they are both reacting to events rather than leading the economic and political debate. On top of this you often have the ironical situation where parties actually do more of that their opponents would do eg Hollande’s austerity package is arguably more aggressive than Osborne’s. Poltitics is turned on its head! But what’s new there? Reagan was one of the great spenders in the US and republicans often spend more than democrats.! The history of politics is littered with examples of XXX wingers implementing more YYY wing policies (at least in terms of government spending) and vice versa. Beware the rhetoric!
Hence the other red ED thread is relevant – isn’t it time the unions formed a new party to represent their interests? The main parties are lodged so firmly in the same ground that any vote becomes largely irrelevant unless the MP is able to focus on local issues that are relevant to the individual voter.
It was a very direct and straightforward question, the OP asked who would you vote for if there was an election tomorrow ?
No need for a “politician type” rambling, evasive, and waffling, non-answer.
Just answer the direct and straightforward question with a direct and straightforward answer.Posted 4 years ago

OP, don’t get distracted by Cleggies yellow tie. Look for the secret cross-bwpench hidden club. We are not meant to know about this hidden alliance but they are becoming increasingly brazen. The giveaway? The purple tie – watch next PMQ. An interesting group, and why purple!?!?!

Note Ed’s tie today? His wife’s dress first thing? Nick Robinson’s tie? The dress just behind Ed on the stage? Which Tory will be following suit next week?!?
