  • Reasons to Vote Liberal Democrat 2010 General Election
    and prefer Gordon Brown but I m voting in an attempt to take us away from a V for Vendetta future Reply to Comment Reasons to Vote Liberal Democrat 2010 General Election Zippy Comment on Reasons to Vote Liberal Democrat 2010 General Election The best reason not to vote Lib Dem is their mantra in relation to proportional representation If voting patterns in the EU election were followed the BNP would secure 45 seats in the Commons In a hung parliament that is a significant powerbase which would skew certain policies towards the far right it would have to otherwise the voting block would not suupport the leading party The Lib Dems have singly refused to answer this question EU election 7 o vote with 1 2Million equates to 45 out of 635 seats Reply to Comment Reasons to Vote Liberal Democrat 2010 General Election David Comment on Reasons to Vote Liberal Democrat 2010 General Election If voting patterns in the EU election were followed the BNP would secure 45 seats in the Commons Although I share your concerns about proportional representation I can t see the voting public still voting for parties like the BNP unless they actually agree with the BNP ideas so less likely for a wasted protest vote on the BNP under the single transferable vote which is what the Lib Dems want Also STV doesn t share seats by popular vote countrywide so the BNP could gain 5 of the popular vote countrywide and still not gain a single MP To gain an MP a candidate still need a fair of the vote or at best a lot of voters listing them as their second and maybe third choice Basically if every area gave the BNP 5 their vote wouldn t be enough to gain a seat and their votes would be shared to other candidates 2nd choice with more than 5 of the vote Biggest concern regarding the BNP is in areas where they might gain over 10 of the vote like with the EU elections they might scrape through a few MPs A handful of BNP MPs will have no real power in government David Reply to Comment Reasons to Vote Liberal Democrat 2010 General Election JimBo Comment on Reasons to Vote Liberal Democrat 2010 General Election Ah ha So it s only PR if it works for one party but not for others this exposes the selfishness of the so called PR crew In truly proportional representation every voting bloc must be represented in the parliamentary outcome That is why I do not consider any of the transferable voting systems to be proportional at all just modified majoritarian The LibDems and their supporters should either go for full and complete proportionality or work with first past the post and stop whingeing Even the US president is elected by electoral college state by state which can yield occasional perverse outcomes So what the system is mostly fair and virtually always decisive Give me

    like Judaism is It s a matter of personal choice Therefore if someone appears to be discriminating against Muslims by definition it s not racism but religious discrimination Reply to Comment Caleb Comment on Tory MP Philip Hollobone Refuses to Talk to ANY Constituent Who Wears a Face Veil Thank You For Your Comment PB I know it is religious discrimination but I just decided not to use that particular word In a form it is racial discrimination because they are a different ethnicity But in hindsight I should have used the word religious discrimination Thank you for pointing out my mistake it is appreciated Reply to Comment pip Comment on Tory MP Philip Hollobone Refuses to Talk to ANY Constituent Who Wears a Face Veil I am not in your constiituency but I would be honoured to be One because of your expense claims and how honest your were and too on your opinion of the burkha Its a pity you was not there to defend the people who had their cross banned Reply to Comment Simon Comment on Tory MP Philip Hollobone Refuses to Talk to ANY Constituent Who Wears a Face Veil It is not religious discrimination Muslims do not HAVE to wear this They can take it off He hasn t refused to see Muslims per se has he He is making a choice based on dress not religion As he says he would refuse to see people in hoodies It is perfectly within his discretion to make that choice It is not yet prohibited to discriminate against someone for what they wear Now grow up Reply to Comment Tory MP Philip Hollobone Refuses to Talk to ANY Constituent Who Wears a Face Veil Caleb Comment on Tory MP Philip Hollobone Refuses to Talk to ANY

  • Coalition Governments : Can Labour and the Liberal Democrats Play Nice?
    in hung parliament coalition government territory deep in that territory If these sorts of numbers come about after May 6th there will either have to be another general election why would there be a different result or a coalition government coalition governments work through out Europe so don t believe what David Cameron is saying to save his skin I m hoping for a Labour Liberal Democrat coalition government but I d really like to see more power in the hands of the Liberal Democrats roughly 50 50 would be ideal Wouldn t it be great for British politics if we had a result along the lines of Labour around 200 MPs Conservatives around 200 MPs Liberal Democrats around 200 MPs Other parties around 50 MPs No more one party politics where either Labour or the Conservatives push ahead with what they want with no controls I like Labours approach to protecting workers rights etc but I hate what they are doing to our civil liberties they go too far down the Big Brother road which is a big worry for the future as it s almost impossible to regain a lost civil liberty I see politics of consensus between two major parties like Labour and the Lib Dems could stop us going to far down the wrong road If we the Lib Dems held enough power they could insist on voter reform to some form of proportional representation system currently Labour are offering the Alternative Vote which is a start and the Tories offering more of the same I doubt we ll get a 50 50 split but more power the Liberal Democrats hold the better IMO as it gives them a louder voice and if enough British people vote Lib Dems maybe they can hold the greatest share of the power I m really looking forward to general election night on May 6th watching the results come through the night to see where British politics is going 3 responses to Coalition Governments Can Labour and the Liberal Democrats Play Nice MM Comment on Coalition Governments Can Labour and the Liberal Democrats Play Nice If I didn t know any better I d say that every post on this particular website is biased towards the Lib Dems Which is a shame considering their policies are taken from both the main parties with the odd original thrown in to make it legitimate Reply to Comment David Comment on Coalition Governments Can Labour and the Liberal Democrats Play Nice I m a Liberal Democrat lackey now hey on another post a commenter is calling me a Labourite I guess I can t win Over the last few days I ve changed my position on who I m going to vote for on May 6th I still generally support Labour principles but Labour s government is struggling for new ideas I ve always been concerned at the big brother nature of Labour and with the recent Lib Dem support they might actually
