This might not mean much for most Kritters but this chap is my local M.P in Kensington and Chelsea. Maybe my Labour vote might actually count in what is normally a strong Conservative area. It will be interesting to see who replaces him and whether or not, due to his damaged reputation, Labour may put pressure on this seat.

Tory M.P to stand down

As from today I will be reporting on the forthcoming U.K elections set for 7th May 2015. I will be keeping a close eye on the MSM relative to all parties involved. This election promises to be a close affair with the real possibility of a hung parliament, a minority government, a second election or another coalition. I thought it fitting to begin with my local constituency.

I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side. Just one thing I got to know. Who won?

UKIP Manifesto

UKIP is a patriotic party that promotes independence: from the EU, and from government interference. We believe in free trade, lower taxes, personal freedom and responsibility.

UKIP believes in Britain becoming a democratic, self-governing country once again. This can only be achieved by getting our nation out of the European Union and reasserting the sovereignty of Parliament.

As a party we are unashamedly patriotic: we believe there is so much to be proud about Britain and the contribution it has made to the world. We believe that Britain is good enough to be an independent nation, trading and building harmonious relations with the rest of the world.

We believe Britain must get back control over its borders, so that it can welcome people with a positive contribution to make while limiting the overall numbers of migrants and keeping out those without the skills or aptitudes to be of benefit to the nation.

UKIP believes in promoting self-reliance and personal freedom from state interference. We believe the state in Britain has become too large, too expensive and too dominant over civil society.

Green Party leader Natalie Bennett has committed her party to a "citizen's income" of £72 paid to all adults, whether they are in work or not.

Money for All!

The Green Party of England and Wales has seen its membership surge to 54,000, as Ms Bennett has switched focus from its traditional environmental policies to talk about inequality and social justice.

I'm not sure how many Brits use this site but it would be great to hear some views on the forthcoming election. Who will you vote for and why? Do you think your vote counts? Do you trust in the manifestos and pledges of the parties? Who do you think will get voted in and how? I for one will not be voting Conservative as they have continually attacked the poor in society without making any effort to tackle tax evasion and have stripped public services down to the bare minimum whilst giving concessions to the rich. This is a dangerous party and must only be allowed a one time governance. I would vote green but thus far they have only one seat in Brighton although polls suggest that they could make some point of impact on the forthcoming elections. It would be great to hear the views of other British people...

You are spot on. The Conservatives are dragging us back to the 1930's. They are scum. I have to vote Labour as they the only realistic challenger however it is predicted that another coalition will unfold and this may include either UKIP, the greens or the SNP. It would be nice to see the greens involved but so far they only gained one seat at the last election in Brighton and they have mismanaged quite a lot in this town since taking over. However I believe they will learn from their mistakes. There is a surge of support for UKIP due to their tough stance on immigration and a pull out of the E.U. It's going to be one of the most interesting elections in modern times.

David Cameron: I'm a fun and optimistic guy!

İmage

Fun Loving Prime Minister

In his magazine interview, the PM gave a glimpse into his perfect night in, which he said would ideally be spent at his family home in Oxfordshire, and involve cooking and "watching a good detective drama on TV, or House Of Cards".

How appropriate. This government is a house of cards.

Labour to cut University Fees

As someone in the middle of a degree this is welcoming news. Perhaps my final year will only cost £6000 as opposed to the current £9000. Universities are naturally unhappy with such news but ten years ago they were £3000 so go fekk them. Students in the new system are coming out of university with debts of over £40,000 which they are unlikely to be able pay back. I am lucky that I paid my first year myself but I still have two years to go. Go Labour for securing the student vote and vote we will. If one lives in Scotland or Wales they are exempt from tuition fees. One rules for some and another rule for others.
