Don't not vote because you think your vote doesn't matter. It does.
Make time tomorrow to cast your vote. This election is arguably more important than a usual general election.
Undecided? Look at the genuine fact checking organisations. Look back over the last nine years to see what another five years under the same party would look like.
In the spirit of openness and transparency I want you to vote tactically - for the Lib Dems - but that is only slightly less important than just voting.

To save our NHS we have to vote Lib Dem here.

I am not factually incorrect. The fewer Tories elected increase the chances of a Labour government. It amazes me that Lewes had a good Lib Dem MP and you voted him out to bring in Maria. Tories ruled in Lewes for donkey's years until Norman put in the hard work to overturn them.

Nancy - the more Lib Dems elected, the more influence they will have over the main party that gets in. There is nothing that you Tory groupies can evidence that will make more of the same for another five years worth it.
Your leader is a lying buffoon. His latest prank - hiding in a fridge - yet again demonstrates he is not fit to lead us.

I bet this chap doesn’t vote Tory.
“ A DAD-of-three who previously admitted that work is “not in his psyche” has now revealed he’s using his housing benefit to build an off-grid home.
Matt Allen lives with his wife Adele and their three children, eight-year-old Ulysses, Ostara, four, and baby Kai, in the Queen’s Road aread of Brighton, working just a few hours a week as a yoga teacher.
Speaking to Fabulous Digital, full time mother Adele said that her husband has no intention of finding full-time work in the future, while Matt stated that they were using their benefits to save up and build a “remote” home and live off nature.”

I wouldn't be surprised if he does. Remote home - country estate. Living off nature - on the back of the workers. Work not in his psyche - born with a silver spoon. Your typical radical Marxist. Vote like the wind brothers and sisters.

So you think keeping your kids out of school, refusing them vaccinations and letting them choose their own rules is a good idea?

Nancy - well done on using the right wing propaganda technique of lumping several unconnected things together in one question. So to try to answer your muddled up questions ...
1. 'keeping your kids out of school' - What on earth are you going on about?
2. 'refusing them vaccinations' - anti-vaxxers are evil and there should be a law forcing parents to vaccinate their children.
3. 'letting them choose their own rules' - studies have shown that this can, if done carefully, have a positive impact on children's education.

Er, still doesn’t make sense. What have they actually taken from us? Have they physically raided our bank account? Taken our savings? Taken our possessions?
Now, I have been the victim of having value taken away from me, by the Labour Government - remember Steven Byers. I worked for Railtrack, and when he put them into administration (rather than bailing them out) he wiped out the value of my shares that had been given to me by my employer. And yet now we have John McDonnell promising to give employees a 10% stake in the company they work for - I find that kinda weird.

I worked for Railtrack too, but before that I worked for British Rail until it was privatised by the Tories. A lot of my colleagues gave the Tory bribe of shares to charity - as you should have done if you didn't see the folly of Railtrack.
