I'm probably a natural labour voter at heart, with socialistic tendencies, I do believe that the party as a whole has the right instincts on redistribution. That said, I think Labour have been in power too long, and have become too attached to corporate interests. The authoritarian streak that has infected this government has also proven unhealthy. I do not believe that the conservatives are a force for good, and their current slogans are mostly belied by their actual policy. The liberal democracts do stand for what I believe in. An argument could be made that their economic plan isn't fully costed, but why should that matter? They're not getting in, but having more votes for them might actually lead to electoral and political reform.

Mister k, this is my thoughts also. Except that with immigration and europe im with the Greens, even the lib dems are too restrictive on immigration and europe for me. I want to get rid of this stupid and pointless life in the UK test for a start!

Voting lib dem will lead, I hope, to electoral reform and I think the whole ocuntry is starting to grasp that they could actually change things round here!

Lib Dem too :) We need an 8% Lab->Lib swing to take Holborn & St Pancras, which is going to be pretty tough. Tories are way behind.

you would be the communist party vote then, I take it?

I only asked people not to, you can of course ignore me, it is not like this poll will be expandable outside of this forum anyway. As is so often the case, XKCD does not reflect the wider population.

I'm going to vote Lib Dem - actually submitted a volunteer form online yesterday, yet to see if I can still do anything, but if I can I shall.

Is there actually a Labour option, btw? I see SDLP, but no Labour - am I just blind?

**** You're right! damn it.... Ok, if you were going to vote labour, just don't bother :P

Edit: I've fixed it, but obviously had to reset the poll. but i've kinda found what I wanted to know now anyway, the Liberals and the Greens have the XKCD vote.

I would probably vote Lib Dem, though I'm not British so it doesn't matter ^^

Ever stop to notice or wonder why there aren't many polls in SB?
