    Voting for a political party is like believing in God. It's an act of faith. Unlike God you actually get to find out that your faith was completely misplaced and none of the things that were supposed to happen have happened.


    Of the 20 years I've been eligible to vote this will be the first year that I actually have. I've always trotted out the 'what's the point, they're all pricks' line.


    I don't know who I'll vote for and I'm under no illusions that a new 'Great Britain' will be born, but I should vote, therefor will.


    What I want.


    I want immigration drastically reduced, I want people coming to this country to either have a job to come to, or to be academically/technically well placed to find work and also to be financially able to support themselves and whoever they bring with them whilst they look for work. If their money runs out and they haven't found work, tough shit, back to where you came from and try again in 12 months time.


    Anyone going the other way gives up all rights to British benefits of any kind.


    I don't want any foreign aid handed out to anyone. Whilst we've got homelessness and hunger in our own country we shouldn't be giving out cash to anyone. We already as a nation give enough voluntarily without the need for part of our earnings being spent on it.


    My lunch is over now, I'll possibly add more later.

    The problem as I see it is that Brockton and Miles take someone disagreeing with them as an attack.
    Ryan, don't be clueless, that would be true if it weren't for all the bs that went down prior, you know what's going on.

    Cameron denies 'running scared' of TV election debates but really he is.

    David Cameron has denied claims he is scared of TV election debates, saying he wanted to "get on" with his proposal for a seven-way contest.

    Ed Miliband has accused the PM of "cowering" from the public after he rejected proposals for a head-to-head debate with the Labour leader.

    But the prime minister claimed the broadcasters were to blame.

    I am not an actor. I just always thought if I was ever unemployed I would just tell people I am an out of work actor. Or artist. Or writer.

    It is a lame situation. Cameron knows he will be roasted and doesn't want to bother, but by the same token a TV debate where each politician will lie and lie again will really answer no questions. The UK is run by the EU, the election itself is little more than a pantomime. The UK is EU occupied and banker run. It's a case of 'We are a little bit less evil than the Tories, but we still worship the banks and want you beyond your means and in debt'.

    Green parties policy on the economy.

    Britain is one of the wealthiest nations in the world but this wealth isn’t being shared fairly.

    We currently have an economic system that that prioritises growth in company profits over the wellbeing of society. This has seen money concentrated in the hands of a wealthy few; leaving the rest of us to suffer at the hands of the Coalition’s austerity agenda.

    We believe there is a positive alternative to this mix of one-sided growth and austerity: an economy that works for everyone.

    We will:

    End austerity and restore the public sector, creating over one million good jobs that pay at least a living wage.
    Pay for this with a new wealth tax on the top 1%, a Robin Hood Tax on the banks and the closure of tax loopholes.
    Increase the minimum wage to reach a living wage of £10 an hour by 2020.

    Hillary is an absolutely shit candidate. Totally bought and paid for by banks and corporations, prone to verbal gaffes, completely out of touch with average Americans, unlikely to have any serious challengers in the primaries so won't get the opportunity to get sharpened up by debates and competition with anybody before she faces the election campaign. Endless negatives.

    The only thing saving her is the fact that the GOP candidates all make her look good by comparison.

    I'm guessing you're looking at this email thing and thinking ha!, here we go!. But every time you think that over the next few months what you need to think is, does anybody apart from people who hate her/weren't going to vote for her anyway really give a shit about this.
