Are the conservatives the best UK party?

The Tories won a majority government in the UK election on the 7th May. I was happy, but I have met quite a few people who were not. Does anyone want to tell me why they agree or disagree with me on this matter?  Cool

Yes, they are

The Tories always have the political courage to tell it as it is and address the problems realistically. Their roll in British political life seems to be sorting out the mess left by the Labour party. The scroungers and low lives are extremely disappointed that their life of luxury on benefits will be coming to an end and they may even have to work for a living. The majority of the British electorate have realised that there really is no such thing as ''something for nothing'' and sooner or later, ( as we see in Greece) ''pay back'' time catches up with those living in the cloud cuckoo land, otherwise known as, ''Laboursville'' of borrow- borrow. Labour need to catch with the more up to date thinking of the electorate;- ''red is dead''.

Excuse me anti-Conservative supporters, but the Tories have cut income tax for 30 million people. Under Labour there were much higher taxes! Also, the deficit has been halved, securing a stronger economy and therefore better public services for future generations. Living standards have been raised. Inflation is now at a record low. There are 1 million children in good or outstanding schools. I could go on forever!

Cameron promised to get immigration down to the tens of thousands by this year and he hasn't. The conservatives are just another leftwing yogurt knitter party that prefers foreigners to natives. I have no idea why they are even considered to be right wing.

Kalamazoo, you are absolutely right. Labour is the party of 1 notion: borrow, borrow, borrow and borrow. They always leave the next Tory administration with a huge debt, high taxes, ridiculous unemployment, a shattered NHS and, basically, no economy at all. The Lib-Dems are too moderate, and always break promises. UKIP haven't been able to prove they can handle the pressure of government because they only have 1 MP, and all the others are too small to mention.

UKIP only have 1 MP because the voting system is biased against them. UKIP are better than the conservatives as conservatives allow a society where foreign leeches come before native British.

The Conservatives actually tried to make the election more fair for everyone, because Labour left it massively biased in their favour. The Conservatives would have made the system better for everyone, had the Lib-Dems voted for fairness as well. UKIP cannot blame the Tories for the unfair system. We tried to change it...

As for immigration, it has massively decreased from outside the EU, the only reason it remains constant from inside the EU is because we have the fastest growing economy in the Western world. It shows that we have a strong enough economy for other EU nations to want to be here.

I have a little poem you might like to hear:

If you're struggling to reach a conclusion,

On who to vote for this May,

Then perhaps I could give you some help,

To make a decision on Thursday.

You see under Labour there's higher taxes,

Under Lib-Dems, higher fees.

Under UKIP, no friends or family

Can come and visit you from overseas.

But under the Tories things go better:

We don't overspend, nor under.

There are tax cuts. Deficits are cleared

Now who to vote for, I wonder?

No. Conservatives oppose the following rights: marriage equality, healthcare, contraception, and so on.

What do you mean they oppose marriage equality? They have never opposed equal rights for both genders. And healthcare? There are 7,000 more nurses after five years of Conservative government. There are 9,000 more doctors. They have invested 7 billion pounds into the NHS. To put a long story short, the opposition, once again, are getting their facts wrong...

Well she understands nothing about politics all she knows is marriage equality,abortion is a murder and anything anti-liberal which she opposes firmly and certainly without doubt conservatives are by far the best of the lot

Wrong conservatives. You can't discuss what American conservatives are doing in a debate specific to the UK Conservative party.

It was the Conservative party (UK) that legalised gay marriage. They also support the National Health Service.

One fact I know: you can't talk about same-sex marriage as a negative point against the Conservatives, as the only people who voted against gay marriage were Conservative back-benchers. Maybe David Cameron was for it, but Ed and Nick were as well. As I said, if you are anti gay marriage, then you should be a Tory. As for the NHS, it is a good thing!!! How can you use it as a negative?

Killing the nhs,cutting police,the bedroom tax and the growing wealth gap are some of the few reasons the Tories are not the best party

Side: No, they are not

The conservatives are too moderate. UKIP is so much better. The conservatives are no longer right wing and have shifted to the left. They allow the benefits system to be in this ridiculous state and they love excessive immigration. Cameron even said that muslims should not be expected to integrate and that it is the rest of society that needs to integrate to them. They are much, much better than labour though, I'll give them that. I hate the Tories for being so weak and fake right wingers but I was glad they kept Red Ed from power.

Side: No, they are not
