The British Conservative party or the British Labour party.

Posted by: TheBilbo1

Who do you prefer out of the two biggest British political parties.

  • Conservative Party

  • Labour Party

58% 7 votes
42% 5 votes
  • I'm undecided between the two, but i'd probably support the UKIP over anything in the UK.

  • The Conservative Party are exceptional. They've managed to raise the minimum wage, whilst cutting the deficit, reducing welfare and lowering taxes. For too long, Britain has relied too much on its welfare, which has contributed to a lack of social mobility. I certainly don't advocate the abolition of the welfare state, but I think that increasing the minimum wage is a huge step toward bringing people out of poverty. The Tories have made greater strides with the minimum wage than the Labour party, which is actually quite surprising. As someone who lives a British Colony, the British Government is exceptional, and I would go so far as to say that I would actually be happy if Prime Minister Cameron were our Prime Minister also.

  • While I would Rather the Greens, SNP, Plaid Cymru, or the Scottish Greens in most cases, I am increasingly liking Labour now that Jeremy Corbyn is the leader. Jez we can!

  • Conservatives have doubled the number of homeless, killed 2380 all in the name of welfare reform.

UKIP?!?!? You mean Diet BNP?

@BrendanD19 UKIP is classical liberal/libertarian, the BNP is straight out fascist.

Calling UKIP "diet BNP" is like calling the green party diet communism.
BrendanD19 says2016-03-07T17:35:53.1717087Z
Except communists didn't endorse the Greens but former BNP leader Nick Griffin endorsed UKIP in the last election. And many former members of the BNP are now members of UKIP.

BNP is to UKIP as Budweiser is to bud light, but the Greens are to communists as root beer is to scotch

Communists actually endorse green or other far-left parties considering they're closest to their ideology. Some UKIP members might have been former BNP members, but that doesn't make UKIP "diet BNP" for being a little right winged.

The BNP is fascist and many supporters are also quite racist. UKIP isn't racist and it's nowhere near fascism, it's closer to Classical Liberalism or Libertarianism, which is definitely nowhere near fascism. Fascism promotes of a large totalitarian state which is pretty much incompatible with the UKIP's ideas of minimizing government intervention.

UKIP is also farther to the right than most of the other major UK parties. That means it would make some sort of sense for someone very far right to support the UKIP, but that doesn't make the UKIP far right or fascist, it's far from that.

@BrendanD19 Can you not spam links and actually state your point? I wouldn't support UKIP as an Asian if it were racist.
triangle.128k says2016-03-18T22:41:18.0313016Z
You can't call everyone you disagree with, or are politically incorrect to some extent, "racist."
BrendanD19 says2016-03-19T00:16:58.3892351Z
I don't call everyone I disagree with racist, I only call people who are racists racists. Furthermore I have long contended that "Political correctness" is not an actual thing that exists.
triangle.128k says2016-03-19T00:54:13.5530058Z
But the UKIP isn't really racist, a lot of the articles you posted were just quotes taken out of context. That, or specific racists once part of the UKIP were singled out and saying they represent the party as a whole. Or it was simply the media's attempt at being politically correct.
BrendanD19 says2016-03-19T01:31:14.2145979Z
What did I say about political correctness?
triangle.128k says2016-03-19T01:49:01.6046401Z
@BrendanD19 It does exist to a uncomfortable extent. But back on topic, can you specifically point out how UKIP is racist rather than just spamming links?
