Leaders debate Can't Post or Reply Privately

Anyone watch that garbage last night. So staged it was unbelievable. Audience specially picked, questions known before hand, no applause allowed.

Brown was his usual bumbling self, Cameroon a smarmy toff and Clegg came out as the winner , and was always going to because most people had never listened to the bloke before(once we hear him spout the same over and over we'll soon go off him as well).

The only thing the debate did for me , was make me more determined to vote for one of the other parties.

Watched "Have I Got News for You". If those posters in windows and gardens are anything to go by it appears we only have two parties standing in this area, though said two parties did get most of the vote between them last time. Don't look though "Villa Dave of Witney" will have a running mate in this area.

I totally agree Dynamo, it was wasted on me as none of those three were ever going to get my vote.

I dont care who it is, it could be Green, Socialist All(or whatever name they are going under this year), Ukip,BNP,Mebron Kernow,Looney Party,English Democrat , independant or any other minor party. The main thing is to give the 3 parties a kick up the backside.

As for the far right, ive already said i wont be voting LabourCool

I intend to either vote monster raving loony if they are still going - at least they admit they are idiots or deliberately spoil the ballot paper by writing none of the above and putting a huge X there.

I would go along with that excluding BNP off that list. Also exclude the Ldemocrats from the party that needs a kick up the backside after all it is the lab/con governments of the last 70 years who have taken it in turns to**** the country up.

I'd rather spoil my paper than vote for someone I dont agree with simply because the others are less corrupt than the others? That way I keep those who say "but you didnt vote so cant complain happy"

Labour- amongst other things just how many unelected people are now in the government?

Tories - 4 words - Margaret Thatcher and John Major. The amount of irrepairable damage they have done to whole regions and communities means no matter what I would never ever vote for them. In fact the way they broke down communities and made it a self self self environment is for me the major reason why this country is in shit creek.

Lib Dems - Considering the amount of money they waste each year running Portsmouth city council, why would I believe them to be able to do a workable and realistic budget for the country. Latest barmy idea - close down the central library for one day a week and cut down its opening hours every other day of the week and build a new hardly used library elsewhere in the city for the same money.

Greens - For me too unrealistic in their aims in my opinion.

BNP - No way will I contemplate voting for them.

Re: [Dynamo] Leaders debate [In reply to] Can't Post or

Despite doing Government & Politics at AS-Level I didn't watch this for the pure reason I don't believe in the waffle the three main parties come out with. Our class is apparently not left-wing enough, sod the left wing as soon as I get the chance to vote I'll be voting UKIP.

Like them or not, you may think I'm 'extreme' but they are the country's fourth biggest party and come out with a damn lot of sense. I also have a few reasons to back-up by support of UKIP.

1) I'm anti-EU. We receive less from it than we put in wasting billions each year. The E.U also has a strangle hold on a democracy that is already flawed. When you have the First Past the Post voting system nothing really is democratic is it? They control our laws, regulate us and should frankly get out of business.

2) They want to sort out the armed forces. Finally a party than wants to stick more money into Afghanistan and Iraq and plan ways of getting out of them

3) The tough stance on crime. It is fair to say our justice system is rubbish and we are letting our streets in certain areas become no-go zones. Harsher sentences will suit everyone.

When you put it like that i understand what you mean and that you have given it some thought, appologies.
Out of interest do the lib dems in your area have overall control or in coalition ? also another consideration in party politics are certain councils having there budgets cut from central government but not labour councilsTongue

When you have the First Past the Post voting system nothing really is democratic is it? They control our laws, regulate us and should frankly get out of business.

I'm all in favour of the EU.....on condition that it's run fairly. In my view it isn't and like you Tom I believe we're getting royally shafted by it.

2) They want to sort out the armed forces. Finally a party than wants to stick more money into Afghanistan and Iraq and plan ways of getting out of them

History tells us that Helmund has always been a lawless area. Within a short time of us pulling out, the Afghan forces will lose control and we will be back to square one. Also, it took the UK almost 2,000 years to embrace democracy. What makes these politicians think the people of Afghanistan and Iraq will embrace it in 5 minutes?

3) The tough stance on crime. It is fair to say our justice system is rubbish and we are letting our streets in certain areas become no-go zones. Harsher sentences will suit everyone.

When the Bulger boys killers were jailed Home Secretary David Blunkett wanted them to stay in prison. Correct me if I'm wrong but was it not the European court of human rights that insisted they should be freed? The length of time that some spend in prison is no longer dictated by judges in this country but by those in the EU. Therefore all UKIP have is fine words with no power to back up what they say they will do unless and until we are out of europe. And that will never happen because too many people believe the rubbish that we would sink without trace if we pulled out.

Like Tom I will be voting for UKIP. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't want them to form a government. But if they got, say, half a dozen seats it might just be enough to frighten the life out of the main two parties and maybe, just maybe, they might start looking after our interests a bit more rather than cacking themselves whenever France and Germany rattle their cages.

Bunch of ar$$h$$es in my opinion to think they actually camapaign in the european election win seats, take the money in expenses and live on it and use it to promote themselves,hypocrisy of the highest order, have no respedt for them whatsoever, their house will come crashing down when they have to publish just what they have done with their expenses money.

What was laughable when Farrage was UKIP leader and asked about his own mep expenses he said
Sorry but we are unable to provide you will a full breakdown of our MEPs expenses.
It is not that we do not think they should be published but because quite frankly at present we have neither the time or resources to provide them in the timescale you asked for. Absolutely pathetic. that and the number of closet BNP people in the party is enough to turn my stomach.

I fekking hate UKIP and all they stand for. That slimy toad Farrage had the gall to get involved with a sensitive planning application regarding a mosque in my town but I bet the prick's never even been to Camberley. How dare he claim to speak for me.

I used to consider mysielf an anarchist. Now I'm a bit older I realise I never was an anarchist proper but I still have a deep suspicion of all political parties and people who want to be elected into a position of power. There's an old saying - if voting changed anything they'd make it illegal.

I'm also dead against being forced to vote, even if none of the above were a choice. Surely a democracy means not voting if you choose to is a legitimate choice.

Having said that, if I can vote in a way that'll piss off Daily Mail readers then I'll do it. Who do they hate most this week? Labour / Lib Dem's or Greens? Whoever it is has got my vote.
