It's no wonder we have so many numpties in parliament.
And why Esther McVey will probably get re-elected.
It's a fair point, but presumably some of the themes listed will be the underlying reason for someone to choose to vote tactically.
For those that recognise the primary importance of a supportive natural order, I've put together an e-mail petition, where you can remind your candidates of what's at stake with one signature. Just go to the Care2 website and look for "Email your UK parliamentary (MP) candidates: protect wild species, the climate and agricultural soils."
I hope those that care will sign and share. Thanks.
My awful Tory candidate is a strong motivation to vote for anyone else- she doesn't represent me at all under this awful first past the post system, and no one else is allowed to. But.. we had to choose the three primary issues, and that doesn't mean that the fourth and fifth are necessarily less important, for example.
Doubtful, they will vote tactically simply to try to stop someone else being elected
eg. vote for the likely second placed candidate rather than your preferred choice to stop the SNP winning.
Yes but there must be a reason they don't want that particular candidate to win, which is likely to be one of the reasons on the poll.
How come this hasn't been included as everyone I speak to is so angry that companies like Amazon, Boots, Vodaphone, Topshop, Daily Mail, Starbucks, etc - don't pay any tax at all. That is losing this country £billions every year, if not £trillions.
This infuriates me so much. Corbyn has promised to change the laws to stop this from happening. I'm not a fan of the conservatives who work for these companies and actually pay these companies £billions in subsidies - people are not aware of this. Look at how much is being given to rail networks as well. These are private companies who give money to their CEO - enormous bonus and shareholders rather than ploughing profits back into making the service better.
Come on people, vote labour, do the right thing please.
You have assumed that people do not consider the individual candidates' strengths. We were only allowed to tick 3 boxes and I along with others have decided that wasn't in our top 3 concerns. It doesn't mean that we don't consider it - it could be issue number 4.
I intend to vote tactically in this election. We have a Conservative member at the moment. I usually vote for Plaid Cymru, but in this election I will be voting Labour as votes for lesser parties are the same as voting Conservative.
