If you live in Scotland, you can vote SNP and in the not too distant future they will achieve their aim of independence eventually, whilst in the meantime blackmailing the rest of us into more and more concessions..... so your vote will count.

For the rest of the UK, it's almost a waste of time.

Labour - will fcuk up the economy again by overspending.
Conservatives - will renege on EU reform promises and migrants will continue to pour in.
Libdems - utter sh1tehawks who couldn't organise a p1ss up in a brewery
Greens - new age loonies with unworkable policies.
UKIP - one man band really, too many loose cannons and people with embarrassing past history like Nigel Hamilton.
The rest - too small to make a difference.

I will probably vote UKIP nonetheless as I believe the UK infrastructure cannot withstand continual mass immigration, and EU interference.

The polls suggest a stalemate again like 2010.


How about a Labour/SNP coalition?


Fine if you want a ruined economy again and no nuclear defence deterrents.

And the SNP would demand huge amounts of English tax payers cash to fund the Scottish socialist dream.

Our great nation's hopes of avoiding a political and constitutional catastrophe in May rests on a clear majority of the electorate voting Conservative.

Anyway I shall now keep out of his debate as I have been glancing at my 'Soapbox' !

If the predictions that the SNP will get 50 seats continue into the run up - then the Tories better start campaigning hard down here otherwise the SNP will be in Government.

In actual fact I am not discounting the fact that the 'Conservatives' could still get in with a slender majority and I am certainly NOT saying that because I am a "Dyed in the wool" Tory !

The polls don't indicate this at the present time but things could change in the full "Glare" of an election campaign.

Like the OP I live in a very Tory area. They will always hold these seats so all parties can really disregard such very safe seats - be they Tory or Labour. The only seats that matter are the few (comparatively) that change hands regularly. These are the seats that decide elections. Maybe 100,000 votes can swing it one way or the other. The other millions of votes don't really change anything.S OP vote for who you like, or close your eyes and make acr0ss, it won't change anything.

However the fact that - if polls can be believed - the SNP are about to clean up north of the border will upset the normal pattern rather. I don't really care what the SNP do at Holyrood but the thought that they might have a major role in the UK government horrifies me. For that reason alone I hope that somehow the Torys can cobble together enough support to keep the SNP out.
Hopefully the possibility of a Lab/SNP alliance may persuade many otherwise Labour voters to abstain or vote elsewhere.

Morning All,

I am a first time voter, Never 'Studied' politics in an educational term but always watch Question time and listen to LBC

I am really struggling to relate to any party at the moment; What is it you look for in a party? What swings you to vote for X / Y.

There is a split within my family of Tories and UKIP and both have been pushed onto me but i do not wish to be swayed to vote in lieu of my parents / grandparents / uncle / aunts voting opinions.

Its a big deal to me, as when i watched the 2010 elections i felt betrayed as the Lib dems turned their back on the younger generation by for what i see, plain balls***, via increasing their student fee's. I almost feel an instant dislike for the party and feel i will never vote for them. As for all the others, man i just do not know where to look, what to read, and how to make my decision.

Sorry if this is boring and stuff but i am just seeking some help / advice!

thanks in advance!

Check out TUSC

The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money.

As mentioned earlier, with the SNP looking to get 50 odd seats in Scotland - they are very likely to hold the balance of power in May. Just think about that for a moment - SNP in Government.

I'm happy for Scotland to vote SNP and I am very pro Union, but if Scotland decides to vote for independence at some point in the future - so be it. What I don't want is an anti-Union party anywhere near SW1A 0AA. Why
