I really want to vote Labour in the GE, but is it still a wasted vote in Lewes? I definitely want that useless Tory out, but is the Lib Dem a stronger candidate than the Labour one?

A vote for Labour isn't a wasted vote if you want to show your support for them. But if you want to get the Tory MP out then your only option is to vote Lib Dem.

Vote Labour. The LibDim woman is only there as a token candidate for her already failed party. If elected, she will be an absent MP once she has siged in at the Commons and secured her salary and future pension. At least our man will carry on campaining for equality.

Vote Labour, regardless of whether it helps Lewes or not. Think about the bigger picture, Corbyn will disarm nuclear weapons, and bring peace to our country. We will learn to live and respect each other irrespective of our social standings or background. He will also help bring peace to war torn Middle East. Labour is for all and not the individual.

That's all very well Red Line, but voting Labour in Lewes doesn't actually help Labour.

As a member of the LP, and a critic of the Lib Dems, I sympathise with your plight. My solution has been to "swap votes" with a Lib Den supporting colleague in Kemptown (they will vote for Labour and I will vote for the Lib Dems). The election is now not looking quite so like a Tory landslide so every non-Tory MP helps.

Voting for one LibDem MP will NOT be a vote for a LibDem government NOR a Labour one but it WILL guarantee a reduced Tory majority- we need a strong opposition - if you want the Tories out irrespective of who you want to vote for, then in Lewes anything other than a LibDem vote is the same as a Tory vote

This is all very silly. There is only one party capable of governing this country and keeping it strong. Be sensible and vote Conservative. Vote Maria Caulfield.

Tim, but what about the U-turns? What about the lies? What about the election fraud, dementia tax, the NHS, fox Hunting??? Why are we in worse debt than when Labour were in power? Why is tax being cut for high earners but the disabled are suffering cuts to their benefits? Why is my kids' school making teachers and teaching assistants redundant, and asking for donations?
No thanks, I would rather take my eyeballs out with a rusty spoon than vote for the Nasty Party.

I'm going to get the Tories to pick me up, and i'll be incredibly brown-nosey about Maria, all the way and all the way back. And vote Lib Dem.
Screw 'em, if they're going to lie to me, well...

Labour will not get in in Lewes we need some opposition. It has to be LibDem in Lewes. The implications of TM having 5 years of unfettered power should make us all fear for the future of the UK. Another LibDem and one less Con. is the only answer.

In Lewes there is a choice of 2 electable candidates. Conservative or Liberal. If you vote Labour you are increasing the chance of the Conservative winning. It is that simple.

I agree with voting tactically for the lib Dems in principle ( showing a lack of principle s, I fear).BUT-- what's to stop them joining in coalition with the Tories? I believe they have some,cough, "previous" in that respect. A chance to ride in the big car has turned many years, another cough.

Remoaners will vote for Kelly Blunderwoman in the vain hope that she can alter the Brexit process even though the chances of Lib Dims gaining control of government are remote.
Lib Dims are also getting desperate -despite "resigning" from politics Storming Norman has come out of his box trying to give her some street cred and we are still getting a flood of comics through our letterbox.
Obviously some think she'll be a clone of him.
Don't forget that "Lewes" constituency isn't just Luvvie Lewes its other towns and villages as well.
Love her or hate her Ms Caulfield gave a good account of herself at the hustings unlike Lib Dim woman who crashed and burned - even Labour boy was better.
Ms Caulfield has done more positive action in the last 24 months than Baker who went stale and had enough hot air to fill a zeppelin. Its all very well asking lots of questions in parliament but its the getting down and actually doing stuff that impresses people -Norman Baker worshippers take note.
Brexit IS happening and we need a strong negotiator and not a half baked effort by those originally opposed to it.
If Lewes does get into Lib Dim hands thankfully the running of the country won't !

May campaigned to stay in the EU & it's an open secret that Corbyn is not keen. Aside from that your logic is clear and in no way based on your irrational prejudices.

Also, Mrs May has proven herself not to be a good negotiator - and has already managed to annoy most of Europe. She also doesn't seem to have a clue as to what the actually want to get out of it.
Strong and stable my arse.

If you think Farron or Corbyn can do a better job you are sadly deluded. May has annoyed europe because she is a threat to their little club and when we go our own ways other countries will see the light too. Like it or not Frak, Lib Dems and Labour thankfully haven't a chance of gaining Government Control !

The hustings has grown into biblical proportions. It's become like that sex pistols concert in Manchester where 5,000 people claim they were at a gig that only 12 people went to.
Maybe in years to come there'll be a whole bunch of political leaders will say, "I was there at the lewes hustings when that blundell froze up on stage, it was a magical time"

Voter - How is she a threat to their little club? she is just shouting from the sidelines, doing nothing.
She says to trust her, but gives absolutely no reasons as to why we should. Or any reasons why Labour would be worse.
