It's that simple
The only party that could win over the Tories in Lewes this time are the Greens.
If you want the Tories out please don't waste a vote on the others

Who the hell wants another Caroline Lucas clone? It's bad enough Lewes is starting to become a mini Brighton without now following their politics as well.
Maria Caulfield has done a good job so far so why change if it's working?

Liz, I hate to break it to you but Greens never controlled the council with a majority, relying on Labour support instead. Labour won't support anything Green as that's where they lose votes. Both are culpable for the mess in Brighton. That said, I was going to vote Green for our council but their decision to put up a candidate for the general election and their manner on twitter makes me question if they can be trusted with decision making.

The greens are not a credible party, and noting for them in this election will guarantee that the totally inept Maria Caulfield is re-elected. The issue with the green party is that they are simultaneously incredibly naive and very cynical. Many of their policies I can get on board with but I know from first hand experience how many complete Yahoos make up their ranks. The more power they get the more incompetent they become. The best thing is for them to remain a glorified pressure group.

I voted Green last time, along with several thousand other people. The end result was that we unwittingly helped Maria Caulfield get elected. I won't make that mistake again.

And in 2010 voting Lib Dem put a Tory government in with Lib Dem backing, giving us tripled tuition fees, demonisation of the disabled, the bedroom tax, and the Health & Social Care Act. Difficult business politics, isn't it?

I'm a socialist but this time round I'm going to swallow my pride (and principles) and vote Liberal. I'll be doing this because there's a very strong possibility that I might, by doing this, contribute to getting rid of one Tory MP. No other place that I could put my X would do anything to help the fact that these streets that I love are suddenly full of unfortunate people in sleeping bags. There's filth everywhere. The NHS is in freefall. And guess what... Google, Facebook, Amazon are exempt from taxation. They're not paying the 30% that you and I pay. Call me yellow but I'll live with that. It's the only way to get rid of one of them. The margin at the last election was very small.

Written just after watching that moronic woman who walks like a weird spider announce AGAIN on C4 news that she favours "Strong and stable leadership over a coalition of chaos". Why can't she ever say anything at all? I seem to recall that she was just in a coalition government.

Let,s be honest there are two main parties to vote for. Voting green or liberal is a wasted vote. The choice is Tory or Labour, the question is which one can you stomach the most?

@Local - Until they change the voting system, in Lewes it is a choice between Tory and Liberal. Labour will always come third here, unless something drastic happens. I can't say I'm excited by any of the parties or their leaders, but I think a Tory landslide would be a disaster for democracy.

Vote Green, get Blue. If you don't want a tory MP, if you want to reduce the size of Theresa May's majority and make her more accountable to parliament, then the way to do that in this constituency is to vote LibDem.

Keep up the good work pushing the lib dem comics through my letter box as they are the ideal size to go in the bottom of the birdcage

All of which was happening under the coalition when the Lib Dems were propping up the Tories. I'm sure Clegg can't wait to get another job with his old mates he he gets the chance.

Blundell spends all her time in Lewes being content that she's living in a liberal bubble, couldn't care less about the rest of the district - where most people live.
I live in Lewes, but u want an MP that can represent townsfolk as well as country. And if she knew anything about Lewes district then she should support repealing the hunt ban.
