I know most of you are like 5 years off voting but what did you all think of the election and who (if you could) did you vote for?

I'm happy with the result of Labour winning another term, however they did manage to lose 47 seats mostly to tories. Would you consider this a good result for the Tories too? I would. Liberal Dems didn't do too bad either. I think they gained 17 seats and you could see the pattern of the majoritys after the votes that LDs were always going up. I was suprised to see the amount of votes BNP were getting in places too. It averaged to about 1000 votes in each constituency they went up for. One place gave them 4000+ votes!!!

Anyway I talk shit

PS: matt i knew tumbridge wells would go conservative!!!

I did a postal vote.

Ticked the box instead of crossed it. Realised this after sealing the envelope. SO, I re-opened it (tearing it in the process), crossed over it, then sellotaped it shut.

So my vote probably didnt even count.

erm, actually andre no they didnt... one of those went SNP, a few to the lib dems, one to respect, at least one to an independant.
labours vote was drastically cut and their former supporters vanished off to all sorts of parties, not just the conversatives.

That's really no surprise. My local constituencies are some of the safest Tory seats in the coutry, it's never going to change. Did you know two thirds of the Tory MPs are from the South East? There's far too much money around here.

I was dissapointed Kilroy managed to get his deposit back, I was looking foward to seeing him lose his cash.

I was very pleased to see so many votes going the Lib Dem's way, I only stayed up to about half one, but in a lot of the seat Labour retained I noticed a large number of Labour support had crossed over to the Liberals. It could be the start of something beautiful.

I spoiled my general election ballot, though I did vote Green for my local council election. If I'd left myself with more time to look into their policies I might well have voted for them in the generals too.

My instinct had always said Lib Dem, but when I looked into it, their policy on the Euro is COMPLETELY retarded, and that's the only area I've ever properly researched into. Didn't like the 50% tax bracket idea either, or the scrapping of mandatory life sentences for murderers and repeat violent/sexual offenders (though that point was from Tory blurb so may have been exaggerated). Having redone my politicalcompass and come out a little further bottom left than I had before, I didn't really think I had much option.
