Default UK General Election

Clueless voter checking in. The general election is in a few months, who are my fellow Brits voting for and why? Who should I vote for? Hopefully get some discussion going and I can be enlightened as I don't take much of an interest in politics but I want to vote.

I think I'm siding with the Greens despite that horrific interview that Natalie Bennett did. Worth posting a second time.

I assumed at first that was the one she did with Andrew Neil.
She did another one that was even worse?


I'm so glad Guernsey has it's own government, I wouldn't know which of these showers of shit I'd want to vote for.

I'll be voting Green due to the utter, utter lack of a better option.

Not much point in picking between Labour and the Tories these days tbh - You couldn't fit a Rizla paper into the political space between the two.

I can see the appeal of the Greens just because it's a protest vote that isn't UKIP.

I've grown to hate Labour with every inch of my being.

Yep.

Says the Greens are going to build 500,000 new homes but doesn't know how much it's gonna cost or where the money is gonna come from.

"How much are the 500,000 homes then?"

"We're looking at a total cost of 2.7... *the reality of the situation dawns on her* ...billion"

"500,000 homes, 2.7 billion... what are they made of? Plywood?"

That's how it seems to me as well. By the way I didn't know you were British, had you down as an American

Anyone know when the live TV debates start?

Oops, I didn't read that I was supposed to, you know, actually live and be voting in Britain to vote in the poll. I probably would be voting Labour though (although if I were in Scotland I'd vote SNP).
