Who should you vote for?

Via Chicken Yoghurt, for those having not (or don't plan to) read a single line in the manifestos and still want to vote? Let this test decide for you, but remember, your vote can be used for tactical voting. Well, my results:

Who Should You Vote For?

Who should I vote for?

Labour -26
Conservative -75

Liberal Democrat 108

UK Independence Party -18

Green 39

You should vote: Liberal Democrat

The LibDems take a strong stand against tax cuts and a strong one in favour of public services: they would make long-term residential care for the elderly free across the UK, and scrap university tuition fees. They are in favour of a ban on smoking in public places, but would relax laws on cannabis. They propose to change vehicle taxation to be based on usage rather than ownership.

Cool stuff from the Lib-Dems. Haha, if I were a Brit, I prob would also vote for them, :) All for uni fees cuts, good civil services, and smoking. Dun care much bout the old ppl's care or for cannabis though ;P

Interested in knowing more bout UK's political scene. Care to enlighten me? It looks very similar to Aus's:

1. Aus Labor Party = Labour Party (working/middle class)
2. Liberal Party = Conservative (upper class)
3. Democrats = Lib-Dem (little 3rd party who wants to stand up against its two bigger brothers) ;P

Plus the whole heap of tiny parties like Greens, the extreme nationalistic right-wing party, etc etc.

Seems like many countries in Europe also follow this class/income division line huh?

kljs, cheers,

xar, similar to australian...but our labour party is probably like the conservatives now.

The parties in Europe are mainly divided into class (in principal at least), better than Malaysian's racial/religious parties though.
