    Question British General Election :: The official Brit WHTers opinion poll.Who are u voting 4?

    Evening

    Now i know you'll hear many of the politicians say that the opinion poll that really matters is the one being held nationwide tomorrow, but i thought we'd lick a virtual finger and stick it in the air to see which way the political wind is blowing.

    Might be interesting.

    Comment where you wish.

    Thanks

    Oh one further question, if you can, please state which constituency you will be casting your vote in tomorrow.

    Uncanny how the colours went in the poll though.

    thanks

    We must remember that there could possibly be bias towards one particular party on this forum and the results may not bear any representation of the actual outcome of the actual vote .

    I will be voting Conservative, my constituency is Enfield Southgate 'Portillos old seat before 1997]. Enfield is the northern most borough of London.

    Current Labour seat, majority of 5,.200 or so, i'm confident that that can be overhaul ed but you never know, the constituency was split in 97 and 01.

    On the colours thing, yep should've done that but i think we'll still see what needs to be seen when it comes to Labour and the Conservative's share of the vote.

    While the election campaign has been going on it has been reported in our local paper that all of the "park rangers" who work in the park nera my house have been made redundant to allow for more police. What a gaff in local political terms.

    It's little decisions like that which also made a difference.

    For me this is how it breaks down, i don't trust Labour and i don't agree with some pretty big long term ideas they have in mind. I do trust what the Lib Dems say pretty much but i don't agree with anywhere near enough of it to vote for them. I do trust the Tories up to now and i do agree with much of what they propsoe, so if they keep to it they are the right choice. They are also one of only a few who seem to really care about and hold "Britain" [the people] dear, now and in the longer term. And THAT, means a hell of a lot to me. I don't agree with all fo what they say mind, but i agree with enough.

    Critic,

    biggest issue with howard is he comes across as a snivelling git who's biggest argument is mud slinging, and when asked questions he's answered with labours record, not what he wants to do. i dont think he'd be a good prime minister. whilst im not a big fan of labour, i think they're generally moving in a good direction, although the manufacturing industry is/has taken a bit of a kicking.. if i do decide to vote this evening it'll probably be lib dems, but i didnt vote the last couple of times..

    Labour will win, there's no doubt about it. But they've lost a lot of respect. I reckon they win with a mojority of 40 seats, which is no where near what they've got in previous years. Hopefully, it will force Tony Blair to think twice before he kills hundreds of thousands of innocent people on false pretences!!!!!!!

    But I would vote for Liberal

    Well i've not voted in the "real world" too, they most likely won't read this but i'd just like to say that the people working at my local polling station were very helpful [me bieng visually impaired] and it is much appreciated on my part.

    So i know for certain that the Tories have at elast one vote , and hopefully many many more.

    SAVE BRITANNIA!

    I can't see Labour or the Lib Dems doing that.

    Well, i'm finally old enough to vote, but when reviewing who to vote for, i see every party as worse as the other. They all do well in screwing things up. I voted Lib Dems as they seem most decent, but I know they won't win.

    Blair & Howard. Hate them passionately.

    I'm 18 and voted for Tony Blair! w00t! I hope he wins.

    No way am I voting for Lib Dem. They are putting up taxes and giving more money to rich elderly people and not helping the people who are paying for all of this!

    Tories cannot run a country.

    Greens is a wasted vote.

    So it looks like Labour is the only real party/

    didnt bother voting as all politicans are the same, the campaign is the only part where they attempt to tell the truth.
    Once they are in power they never keep there promises.

    Although I personally go Labour - it doesn't seem like you've got very well thought out views at all. And - after all the years you spend working - when you retire - I'm sure you would like some money to live off.

    It's very unfair to treat the eldery who have worked and paid taxes for a lot longer than you have to have very low amounts of money given to them after they've retired (unless of course they have plenty of money already ).

    lol – I think that’s somewhat expected!


    I am defo a torie... I have fell out with alot of people lately because of this lol
    I know what you mean. I too am a Conservative, and usually when discussing politics I keep quiet – Not due to my views, rather the fact they don’t like the fact I’m Conservative. There is one forum where I frequent, and they too have a poll, and the majority there are Conservatives and some Labour supporter came on saying how he couldn’t believe us all, and how he would tell everyone he knew not to go there because it’s full of – as he put it – “tory scum”.
    Some people.


    Howard is just too dull mate..
    Howard is a great leader – and he’d make a fine man for Prime Minister. Being liked / funky doesn’t mean you’ll be good for top job – everyone loves Charles Kennedy, yet few believe he’d make a good PM. Barely any like good old Maggie – yet no one can deny she was a strong leader.


    Labour will win, there's no doubt about it.
    Don’t count your chickens before they’ve hatched.


    But i guess thats depends on your opinion
    Aie it does. Many argue Thatcher was great … and she was depending on your income.


    which is Tony blair's party?
    …? You don’t know who is in government?


    They are putting up taxes and giving more money to rich elderly people and not helping the people who are paying for all of this!
    I’m not sure if I read this right … our poverty stricken pensioners are actually rich?


    Tories cannot run a country.
    I think some would argue they ran it well; as said above though, depending on your income.


    Greens is a wasted vote.
    Many people believe voting Liberal Democrat is a wasted vote – the funny thing is that if they all voted Lib Dem, you’d be seeing Charles Kennedy as the next PM!

    First result is in....

    Sunderland South held by Labour.

    Not unexpected really.

    I don't expect my constituency to reprot till the wee small hours, i reckon between 0200hrs-0330hrs.

    Now back to the TV although i will return and update if anything major breaks. It's not like the US election last year with 4 dozen or so states' results to look out for, there's hundreds of them.

    Vortex-Steve, that exit poll would be fairly promising for the Tories in the longer term but mroe so maybe a disappointment for the Lib Dems in terms of seats gained.

    Oh and by the way, we really shouldn't concentrate quite so much on the individual personalities, i mean i now that's where we're heading but that's not how it's meant to be here.

    [color=dark-blue]Conservatives take Putney from Labour.[/color]

    Something to note, there's been a sizable increase in the vote share for the BNP so far. Not been terribly damaging to any of the main 3 as yet but it is noticeable.
