Conservatives = everyone hates them because they want to dismantle the welfare state and sell it off to their city boy chums.

Labour = everyone hates them because they went to war with Iraq and have a leader who can't eat a bacon sandwich properly.

Liberal Democrats = everyone hates them because their leader (Nick Clegg) said they wouldn't raise university tuition fees and then a few months later did when they became coalition partners with the Conservatives.

UKIP = everyone hates them because the party is made up of all the nation's racist uncles.

SNP = everyone hates them because they appear to have some reasonable policies but actually just want Scottish independence.

Green Party = everyone hates them because they are idealistic, fucked up the bin collection in Brighton (where they have an MP) and are opposed to nuclear power.

Plaid Cymru = everyone hates them because they're Welsh.

Pretty good summary really. We've been living with the conservatives, it's not been easy on the NHS and welfare like allah says,  but otherwise they've done a pretty good job in terms of cutting the deficit and supporting business.

Conservatives seem least fucked up to me, so I'm going with them, have done pretty well so far with the deficit

I thought the general consensus was Thatcher was the worst thing ever? Or was she an ultra conservative pig?

I have no idea who I'd vote for next year. The GOP candidates are fucking morons and Clinton is a crooked bitch.

I'm genuinely shitting myself about a Tory/UKIP coalition.

I used to live in Brighton where the Green MP  Caroline Lucas stood, and I was impressed by her activism for ethical issues (bin collection was city council fault, not MP fault). Having said that, she had no need to worry about anything major as she was a fringe candidate.

Hoping for a Labour/SNP coalition as Labour aren't going to get a majority.

Same.

As for Thatcher, large swathes of the country do hate her but it was a while ago.

The three main parties have largely been operating under an economic neo-liberal consensus since the '80s. When Blair became Labour leader he dropped Clause IV, the part of the Labour constitution which basically referred to its aim to redistribute of wealth. A lot of genuine lefties (who almost universally despise Thatcher) find it very difficult to identify with the current Labour party, mainly because of its move to the centre.

I feel the same way.  Hillary is more of the same in the worse sense of the phrase.  I don't like these political dynasties, they're all so tied into the corporate side, the money, backroom deals, etc.  I can't think of one thing Hillary has done in recent times that went against the grain or made me think she's anything more than another puppet.

Fuck the Tory bastards, they're in power here and every institution we hold dear in this country is being dismantled policy by policy.
