Party choices.

Post by Scott on Thu 01 Oct 2009, 11:11 pm

Right, I'm gonna stick this in the naboo forum because I want to keep it as debateable as possible.

I'm turning 18 soon and I'm taking a very keen inerest in politics lately, I've been looking over some of the parties and I can't decide what party to go for.
My family household has been Labour since I was born. But now it's changed and we've decided to let Gordon Brown go fuck himself.

What I want is you guys to SELL your party to me. Basically this is what politics is all about. I wanna know what party is going to benefit my household and keep the country in good working order.

Thanks guys. =]

Being realistic, probably none of them.
When I've thought more, I'll come up with an argument for my party.

i'd just do your own research tbh. if you ask others, they wont take a fair neutral side and you'll get conflicting messed up views and probably end up less certain about anything than before...

Is there an "independant" option in the UK? Because that's what I'm going to register as. That way you aren't "stuck" to a real party.

It's optional to vote. You don't need to take part in the democratic poll.

I mean like, when registering to vote, do you HAVE to choose a party or is there an independant option.

Independant for what? :S

Pretty confused.

We don't HAVE to vote so if you don't like any of the parties then... don't vote?

Well like, here when we register to vote we register with a party (Democratic, Republican, Green, etc.) so it says you are a registered Democrat/Republican etc. But if you don't want to register with any party but you still want register to vote, you choose independant.

You don't have to register over here I don't think. Just take your poll card, put down the party your voting for and put it in the box.

EDIT: Providing you're 18 though of course.

Pirate Party sounded a lot more fun before Malky described it. I pictured wooden legs, parrots and eye patches.

Their main aim is web freedom, but the pirate costume is optional. I can't afford to buy it.
