However I don't have a vote! biggrin.gif

I've never been a fan personally of tactical voting although I see the merits of it. I think though that it does highlight again the need for electoral reform. Not that I favor full proportional representation either, for all its faults first past the post does have two advantages, one being the real link between local MP and constituency that you don't get with party lists and PR (can anyone name any of their 'local' party list selected/PR elected MEP's?), and the second that the last parliament excepted it has tended to produce clear results and stronger governments. But I do back making the House of Lords 100% elected by PR (and making it a lot smaller too) and doing this by having each vote in a general election count twice, once for the local MP as now and once towards a PR elected HoL (or whatever it would then be called), that way wherever you are every vote would really count, and it would introduce a fairer system for the smaller parties and an actual democratic system (unlike now). Can't see it happening any time soon though, what with the annual vomit inducing spectacle of people getting made Lords on account of their past large financial donations to the parties that nominated them.

Vote Labour, especially if you live in Chester: Chris Mattheson has been a superb constituency MP.

I just wish there wasn't this obsession with all Conservative voters being rich! I'm not, and I know a lot of Labour voters who are a lot richer than most of us on here.
If you get your way and have Comrade Corbyn in, then you will see who's classed as "rich" as before, it will be tax you, more tax and even more tax. That will include a lot of Labour voters who certainly don't class themselves as rich.
I know I'm a lone voice on here, but if you want facts, why is it most Labour MPs don't want Corbyn as leader.
I also think it's a sign of desperation from any voter who hasn't got enough faith in his own party, that he has to " tactical vote" Have you not enough faith in your own party?
Mind you, although the majority vote was for Brexit, there are people who don't want to accept democracy, and will do anything, along with the SNP to try and scupper it.
And all you Labour Blair haters on here, who have castigated him, and have tried to ignore his success as Labour leader, are you happy he is returning to front line politics? Blair and Corbyn working together?
That will be fun!

As a Tory are you comfortable with tax cuts for millionaires, whilst the sick and disabled have their benefits slashed and public sector workers are reliant on foodbanks to feed themselves?

The so called "rich" pay at least 65% of all tax income in this country. This government has already taken thousands of people out of paying tax already.
There is no point in me trying to defend Consevative policy on here, all I can say is that the country voted at the last election for a Conservative government. Labour have always repeated this "rich" mantra about looking after the rich since they were formed. The irony being, most Labour politicians seemed to do alright financially from the system they say is wrong.

I didn't say that, what you are saying is a Labour accusation that is decades old, if it was true, why is it that Conservative governments get voted in? Of course we don't live in an equal society, neither Labour or Consevative governments have ever been able to achieve a completely "equal society" Some might say only China and North Korea have achieved that.

What's not true? It's a matter of fact that benefits have been slashed for the sick and disabled and the RCN (hardly a hot bed of socialism) is on record saying that nurses are using food banks in ever increasing numbers.
Perhaps you can answer this then: National debt has tripled on the past 7 years, yet services have been cut to the bone, so where has the money gone?

Ever since I've been old enough to vote we've had a series of useless local MPs, including Peter Morrison (I need not remind you what he was), Gyles Brandreth, who said he knew he'd lost he election when he failed to find the Deva Stadium and Moseley, who turned up when we beat Boston Utd to wave to the fans. Chris Matheson is a Blue through and through. Vote for him. He is also an MP that does the job, unlike the above mentioned.

To be honest, NFBF, the answer to that is probably no. However a lot of people have identified what they see as a frightening force in the form of the Conservative Party and want to do what they can to stop it. It feels a bit like knowing you're about to get hit over the head with something and choosing the instrument that will hurt the least.

It's a generalisation to say rich people vote Tory and poor people vote Labour, but statistically there's certainly a correlation between wealth and voting Conservative. On the back alley of terrace housing I live on in West Kirby, there are several Labour signs in people's windows, but if I go down to the mansions in Caldy and Thurstaston there's Tory propaganda everywhere. There are even stats saying traditional Labour voters who have won the lottery have become Tory voters once they've come into money.

I think what you've perhaps never quite grasped in all your time on here is that nobody is bigging up Labour, Liberal or anyone else. We're all well aware of their faults. The only person on here that seems to fiercely identify with one particular party is you, and maybe that's why you find yourself in the firing line rather than for your views themselves.

Although I don't agree with all you say XWWB, an excellent fairly balanced post. I think what frightens voters most, is what a Labour government under Jeremy Corbyn, would look like, imagine Diane Abbot and the like sitting in Cabinet?
I have lived through Labour governments and accepted the democratic vote of the country, but to be governed by an unholy alliance of Labour/Lib Dems/SNPs/Plaid Cymru/ and the greens under Jeremy Corbyn is a recipe for disaster for everyone in the country.

I think Diane Abbott is a car crash to be honest, and there are many doubts about Corbyn, although at least his intentions are good, which is a start. I'd argue that there are plenty of oafish Conservatives in the cabinet as well. Jeremy Hunt's record as Health Secretary is appalling. The way I see it, this government is not working and there's little to lose by trying something else.

Wonder who'll win? For me, the Tory campaign has been the weakest I can ever remember, so I'm hoping for a Jim Royle style "Trust me my a**e" response to Theresa Mayhem.

Maybe we can then start to replace the 20000 policemen cut and fund the NHS properly without hospitals being forced to sell off their property as per the Mayhem-supported Naylor Report.

Exit polls suggest Conservatives will be the biggest party, but will they hold an overall majority? They've been quite accurate in the past, watching with interest... wink.gif

Exit polls are suggesting Chester will be held by Labour and Wrexham has turned Conservative.

If correct, what the.... ? biggrin.gif

Exit polls suggest Conservatives will be the biggest party, but will they hold an overall majority? They've been quite accurate in the past, watching with interest... wink.gif

You mention "interest' 3mm? If Corbyn does get in, either on his own, or with the Left leaning SNP, Plaid Cymru and Greens and others, then it will be "interest" that will be the word, God help all young people with mortgages, because,fact, they will go up, as will taxes, thats normal for Labour governments.
All Corbyns promises will have to be paid for, the deficit will rise, the economy will collapse. (Do you remember the note left by the last Labour government? " There's no money left") If they get into power, it will be a lot sooner than later before the money runs out!
Also, can somebody tell me why Labour MPs have not been featuring Corbyn in their election leaflets? Are they embarrassed by their possible next Labour Prime Minister?
I'm trying hard to listen to the Election results on the BBC radio, both with R5 and R4, they are almost ecstatic with glee at the thought of a possible Labour government, which is not surprising.
Long way to go yet, let's see what the morning brings, my forecast is, another Election on 18 months.

That note would be similar to the one left by Conservative Reggie Maudling to Labour's Jim Callaghan when he became chancellor in 1964, which said: "Sorry to leave it in such a mess.". Funny how you never mention that one. Obviously the tory one must have been a joke, but Labour's should be taken seriously rolleyes.gif

If Labour do make gains in this election it will be because of things like the 20,000 police cuts made under Mayhem, the increased terrorism threat as a direct result, her failure to reach her own immigration targets, and the privatisation of the NHS as detailed in the Naylor Report. It would also speak volumes about the popularity of Mayhem who had a 20 point lead when the election was announced, and in the same period Jeremy Corbyn has increased his popularity on virtually every day of campaigning.

Have you seen her 2015 speech about the Police Federation crying wolf. Who's crying now?

And what's your view on the Naylor Report? The plan to privatise the NHS, fully supported by Theresa Mayhem and the Conservatives. Selling off NHS assets in a "2 for 1" sale. Incredible!!!!

After this election result, one of us will be saying "cheers" and the other will be drowning his sorrows.

How long can Theresa Mayhem survive now? Anything but strength and stability biggrin.gif

Today, Nick Clegg has a face like a student who's just been told their tuition fees are being increased. He's got exactly what he deserves.
