Has anyone actually read the manifesto 11:49 - Nov 27 with 928 viewsclive_baker

Of the party they're planning on voting for?

Just occurred to me yesterday as I read 107 pages of platitude filled, vacuous Labour BS on my train to football.

I'm going to vote Green.

Not all of both Labour and Tory.

Issue I have is simple, where I vote the Tories have a majority of around 16 or so thousand....my vote here simply doesn't count.

I did during one GE and then realised every party had changed their minds within 6 months of the GE and came to the conclusion every manifesto is a lie.

No such thing IMO brother. Although they won't 'win', the mainstream parties form policies on the evident will of people. Vote winners. Look at UKIP, although they never got into power they forced the Brexit agenda on the Tories. I would love 10% of the population to vote Green.

Usually I would agree but I think 'we' (anti Tories) need MPs this time. Not sure votes are enough at this election. Can't see Boris taking any notice of green votes.

It is if you actually want Green policies any time soon. Vote Labour.

I agree with George here re: bringing in the Greens anyway.

no but several parties expect the country to vote in a referendum where the population has read a 500+ page 'deal' document

Don't most voters just vote for who they usually vote for? It's a bit like a loyal football fan buying a season ticket every season regardless of anything that might suggest they do otherwise - might seem a trite comparison but i'm sure that's how some voters see things

Not yet, but I have looked into the candidates who will be standing in this seat. Which has quite a lot of bearing upon who I vote for.

I voted out and have since realised it was a very stupid thing to do.

What was your reasoning at the time?

I agree with you, leaving the EU would be a stupid thing to do. Having said that, a Corbyn led Labour majority is a greater risk to the UK by way of business and job creation than Brexit.

Skimmed manifestos and considered the candidates, the Tory one being the person who said that the Benefits Street people should be put down!

What's your evidence for that? Most in the City are far more concerned about the impacts of Brexit than a Labour government.

A leave voter that now has the politcal stance of anti Tory. Impressive stuff I must follow you closely on politics on the future.

Fancy telling us about the great substance you found in the Green manifesto then?

No, not at the moment

Among the businesses in the City that I work alongside daily, that's certainly not the consensus right now. I think there are sufficient reasons to believe both will be damaging to the UK economy, and to foreign investment. I've heard some real horror stories over the past couple of weeks.

A better question is did they read and then believe it? If the answers yes please do not vote.
