Re: UK's first prime ministerial TV debate

Probably not, but not voting is still a valid stance. They should add a 'i'm not voting for any of you' box and then see what happens

Re: UK's first prime ministerial TV debate

We've been arguing for that box to be added to the ballot here for years. The NOTA box.

Question on the Liberal Democrat party. Are they anything like the Australian Liberal party?

Re: UK's first prime ministerial TV debate

Nobody?

Anyway, given that everyone seems to be pro LibDem here, I thought I'd post the counterpoint from The Register on a couple of areas where they might spell trouble.

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/05..._vote_lib_dem/

I'm not as concerned about the nuclear weapon part, but the nuclear power part is important. We can't reach our goals of being completely off fossil fuels unless we have the power to do the research on things that will replace them, and Nuclear is the best way to meet those research challenges until we do get proper replacements in place... Wind power is useless for that.

Re: UK's first prime ministerial TV debate

They're basically for freedom and smaller government all around, less intervention in people's personal and financial lives... The same as the US Libertarian party.

Re: UK's first prime ministerial TV debate

UK Lib Dems aren't that different to the Conservatives or Labour from what I can tell. Except they want to allow all the illegal imigrants already in the UK to stay and they want to pull the plug on the Trident programme! Their argument being that Trident was designed for a cold war terror.

All the media talk about is the 3 people leading, can anyone tell me the 3 main parties policies and the difference between each?

Re: UK's first prime ministerial TV debate

Well, the cold war isn't quite as over as it seems. It's just that there's more players now, it's not just 2 big sides... But a sure way to get nuked is to have no response in place for that eventuality. I personally believe that defense is the best option rather than offense, anti-ballistic missile programs and the like, but others see those as more of a provocation... (Russia...)

You're right, it does seem like the lib-dems are less of a unique party and just another take on the other two parties.

I'm not sure who I would vote for if I were over there.

I quite agree, any even if it was if you turn off your missile defense programme because of a lack of perceived threats, you can't just turn it on again next week! It would take another 60 years to get it back due to facilities, skills etc.
