Who should I vote for?
Your actual outcome:
|Liberal Democrat 98|
|UK Independence Party -30|
You should vote: Liberal Democrat
The LibDems take a strong stand against tax cuts and a strong one in favour of public services: they would make long-term residential care for the elderly free across the UK, and scrap university tuition fees. They are in favour of a ban on smoking in public places, but would relax laws on cannabis. They propose to change vehicle taxation to be based on usage rather than ownership.
Take the test at Who Should You Vote For
My MP's Simon Thomas and neither he nor anyone from Plaid has knocked at my door or posted any campaign material through it - Simon's probably too busy with his preposterous campaign to impeach Blair.
But he's not alone. I haven't had any contact from any party at all. Is this usual in Wales?
According to theyworkforyou.com (excellent site) , Simon's voting record shows he's recently asked 5 questions on the subject of the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan Pipeline, which seems an odd concern for a member of a minority party with such specifically regional interests.
And he used to work in the National Library, which might be one reason why he appeared less bothered about a ... certain issue ... than I expected he might have been, given it involved £150,000 of public money.
And he was against the hunting ban so anyone who isn't keen on tearing foxes apart for amusement might consider tactical voting.
I wonder if I could setup something similar to theyworkforyou for the Welsh Assembly. It would have to operate off currently online published data.
Peter and be free.
Thank you Claire for that psychological insight into Peter-all he has to do is follow Stuart and Steph to the truth. It is hard when someones friends see the truth before one does. But of course there is that small matter of ones salary or as Mr Cohen says "They sentenced me to twenty years of boredom for trying to change the system from within"
Isn't there part of you that wants to be a Lib Dem again?
My second was Green 32 but I'd still rather vote looney then green it makes more sense
Try the political compass(www.politicalcompass.org) It is far more revealing and neither your Peter would dare publish the results.
please look further as see where the Lib Dems are!
Obviously all Lib Dems are in a box and all think and act the same
