Lib dems

The libdems often seem to be held responsible for the ills of the coalition government and some say they would not vote for them under any circumstances. Ironically, not voting for the libdems in this constituency is the single best thing you can do for the conservatives who have a far larger share of responsibility for the policies of the coalition and most importantly will make us all poorer by taking us out of the EU.

I despair when I see bickering between progressive parties such as lib Dems and labour. I resent it when I see lib dems peddle the antisemitism charges against Corbyn, even if they haven't quite weaponised it as much as the hypocritical and deeply dishonest Tories have. I wish they would all unite properly against the right wing, but appreciate they are ultimately trying to appeal to (at least in the same ballpark) similar voters, so have to try and win them over...i just wish it could be done by their policies and attacking the current government instead of jumping on the media bandwagon against Corbyn.

Still, that all said, the priority must be to remove the Tories, so I will be voting lib Dems and hope Labour, Lib Dems, Greens, Plaid Cymru and SNP get more seats than the Conservatives across the UK (and any other vile right wing party they might work with).

How on earth can Labour's 1970's commie policies possibly be regarded as 'progressive'?

@local99 - name such policies that you deem "commie", and why they are so problematic for you? I guess the NHS after the war was a bit "commie". We really should just get rid of it and get the kind of healthcare system those lucky americans have in Trumpland.

state ownership. relaxed strike laws. hating entrepreneurship. reducing tax take by ramping up tax levels. just for starters.

Local99, are you one of those 'libertarians' we hear about? You know, the ones who thought the way of dealing with the 2009 crisis caused by greedy bankers was a bout of socialism for the rich and austerity for the rest of us?
