I was raised a socialist, and while i try to cling to some of those principals i find i agree more and more with a right wing idealogy these days

That said pretty much every polititian these days comes over as a self serving smug ******* so i'll not be voting for anyone, however as there's no option for no-one i put other

Besides the Tories will **** Southend cos they always do

****ing Bonservative?!?! can somebody change that please?

Amended as requested.

Time for a change I think. Brown to me seems a spineless gutless wimp who came to power through background deals rather than through a popular vote.

(I know I know we dont directly elect the leaders but in reality people did not have their say over his leadership and he was too power hungry to call a general election when he took over the leadership).

3 Lib Dems.

I understand the apathy but I urge everyone who has the right to exercise it, even if you just go to the poll box and draw a **** on the ballot paper.

Well I think this is the first election where I'll actually understand how my vote works. So I'll look at my local area (Wandsworth) near the time and decide then.

Last time my vote was utterly wasted as the local vote was something insane like 60% Labour, 35% Labour, 5% others.

I'd probably vote Lib Dem though as Labour are thoroughly undeserving of any further support from me and the Tories just stand for... well, what really? This?

In Southend, as it is in most of Essex, it will be a blue vote...pointless poll, but what the hey.

Although my ideals are socialist, I live in a very radical 'green' area, and they appear to be doing a good job for the local community, I'm not so sure nationally, but as niether Blue or Red will get my vote this time round, and I wont sit on the fence wearing yellow, green will get the nod from Nobby, lets see what they can do, after all, they cant do any worse.

Imagine the havoc Southend Council will be able to cause with a government that actually backs them up.

It's not as Blue & White in Castle Point where Bob Spink will stand as an Independent after being deselected by the Tories. I think he has a pretty good chance of keeping the seat, IMO he's an excellent constituency MP.

He's not been able to do anything about the foxes ripping up my bin bags.

Surely it's plain to see?
I will vote for the party who I think has the best chance of defeating the party I don't want representing us the most.

I have to vote tactically, as the main parties are so close to each other in terms of policies, and are far removed from my own political beliefs.

Me too, I couldn't bring myself to vote Tory ever.
