Who do I vote for?

I know I should vote but I don't have a clue who I should vote for. I don't agree with the more than 50% of the policies being promoted by any of them.

http://www.whoshouldyouvotefor.com helps you decide which party most closely represents your values. Unfortunately it confirmed my worst fears. I may have to vote Labour at the election next month. Arse.

Who Should You Vote For?

Who should I vote for?

Your expected outcome:

Labour

Your actual outcome:


Labour 16
Conservative -14
Liberal Democrat 8
UK Independence Party -17
Green -9


You should vote: Labour

The Labour Party is broadly pro-Europe and takes a strong line in favour of all anti-terrorism measures, and of course supported the war in Iraq. Labour is against explicit increases in income tax to fund public services and against the abolition of university tuition fees, but has pledged to reintroduce maintenance grants for students.

Then again, if I vote on a purely selfish basis, for the policies that will most improve my own quality of life then it all changes dramatically. If I can ignore my convictions then I'm a clear Conservative.

Your expected outcome:

Labour


Your actual outcome:



Labour 8
Conservative 23
Liberal Democrat -30
UK Independence Party 3
Green 9


You should vote: Conservative

The Conservative Party is strongly against joining the Euro and against greater use of taxation to fund public services. The party broadly supported the Iraq war and backs greater policing and ID cards. The Tories are against increasing the minimum wage above the rate of inflation, and have committed to abolishing university tuition fees. They support 'virtual vouchers' for private education.
