I'm voting lib dems for two reasons;

1. Nick Clegg performed the best overall in the three debates.
2. Labour and conservative are promoting the same old beliefs they have had since their inception, yet - while both having the oppurtunity - they haven't put those beliefs in practice.

Not to say that I'm a big fan of Lib Dem's, personally i think their all tossers, and it seems it doesn't matter what i vote for, as a hung parliament look increasingly likely. Yikes!

I'm gonna be voting lib dem simply because labour are a bunch of lying tossers & the tories are the same. Gonna make absolutely no difference how I vote though - where I live has been a safe tory seat since before I was born...

so voting for someone that won't have the power to make a change is going to help how?

You just described pretty much everyone involved in politics right there - doesn't matter which party they're with!

Politics is where you end up if you're a) corrupt or b) have enough money that you don't need to work ever again

Or c) You genuinely want to make this country a better place to live in, although unfortunately, option c) is proving much less popular than a) and b).

I only swayed towards lib dems after watching a debate (first one, i think?), Where David said he wanted to cut down the house of lords to 10% less members, Gordon attempts to pathetically trump it by saying he wants to half it (i think that's how it went? More or less), in which Nick drops them both in the shit saying that the lib dems have nominated this proposition in parliament before, and when they did, the Tories ignored it and Labour blocked it. For me that just goes to show that out of the three, Liberal Democrats are more action than words.
