Hung parliament

15 Apr

Okay..I’ve been informed that Nick Clegg is a Tori in disguise so maybe a hung parliament wouldn’t be a good idea… Oh dear :(.

Who to vote for?

Also, all you who reckon Conservative is good – Remember Margaret Thatcher? She was a Tori and we all know what everyone thought of her.

    That’s more like it! Have a google for the results of your constituency last time round Rosie and I’m sure your dilemma will be resolved 🙂

    Margaret Thatcher did a lot of good, encouaraged people to do the best for themselves and sorted out the country as it had been left in shite from Labour…again! And I’ve been informed that the Lib Dems were trying to team up with the conservatives but Torys were like err nooo and so they went to labour and are teaming up with them, its dodgy business which just shows torys are the ones to vote for!

    You should read each party manifesto and decide for yourself and not listen to what other people tell you! You can read them in the Election 2010 section if the BBC website; it’ll keep you busy for a while! The main problem with our voting system is that many peoples’ votes don’t really count because of the way the constituencies are organised. They really need to change the electoral system. For example, the Lib Dems don’t get as many votes as they would do if people voted for what they believed because most of the time people vote tactically to keep either Labour or the Tories out. The Lib Dems haven’t said they’re going to team up with anybody; if anything it’s the other way round because if it’s a hung parliament both Labour and Tories will probably need the Lib Dems to be able to form a government. Anyway, who’s going to be Dorothy?

    Amyyy, there’s no polite way of saying this but it needs to be said I’m afraid. Your post is complete nonsense with not a single word of truth in it. I can’t be bothered to refute it word by word but anyone who lived through the last Tory governmenr or has access to Google would be able to in 30 seconds.

    I lived through it…and it was totally different from this current govt and just as bad, but no worse.
    All the different parties do good stuff and bad stuff, and you have to decide for yourself which particular good stuff is important to you and vote accordingly.

    I was just a little egg when she was around, I guess I just have a very biased English teacher as thats what I was taught! I still think Torys should be given the chance and then we can see if they sort it all out!

    That’s appalling. English teachers, indeed any teachers, shouldn’t be teaching people their own peronal political beliefes, whatever party they support.

    I’ll confess that Thatcher remains for people like me a real hate figure and any mention of her tends to evoke a Pavlovian “evil!!!!” response. Entirely justified of course because I’m right 🙂 🙂

    well tories might not necessarily be a bad thing.. they might help the economy recover after all, the main reason being because they plan to reduce taxation and business taxes… this could be a good thing because its businesses which keep the economy going. the high taxations put in place by the labour party are putting small comapnies out of business and preventing larger businesses from explanding, which isn’t helping with the deficit! also it couldbe argued the labour party are just continuing to take money out of the economy by creating more and more jobs in the public sector, increasing public spending…. the increasing numbers of immigrants just adds to the problem and we can’t really afford to pay for their health and education too. but i’m not voting anyway as i’m still unsure if the conservative policies will actually be of any benefit, or if they’ll just make the poor become poorer
