    I'm sad that I can vote now and I don't seem to have any real choice! It's hobson's choice!

    I think Cameron is an absolute idiot (or at least the media has portrayed him in that way!) but after having labour during the past few years hasn't exactly been brilliant! I'll more than likely vote labour because as far as I can see the other parties want to raise university fees. (Cop out reason really but that's the only distinction I can make given the information that I've got about each party.

    I say we all vote Monster Raving Loonie and just be done with it

    If you want the exchange rate to improve, I'd say Lib Dem's and indy's are to be avoided like the plague. That (imho) just increases the chances of a hung parliament, which will ruin the market. Early indicators hint that as more concise polls are taken now the election has been called, the Tory's have started to pull away...

    I don't mind stating either that last time I voted Lib Dem's because they were the only ones that wanted to increase on the beat police numbers, and to be honest it feels like a wasted vote in hindsight.

    be voting conservative, because I've always hated the hand out mentality of labour, and the fact that they play on being the 'working class party' when they're actually far from it. They got us in to this mess after a strong foundation was laid for them, and it was many of Brown's budgets that has us owing so much money. Yes the Tories will cut back a bit, but taxes will generally be lower under them - and where has all the extra tax and spending got us under labour?

    But can you recall which party introduced those fees in the first place Josh?

    I'm guessing it was labour but I'm probably too young to actually remember
