I suspect that Conservatives make natural contractors because they value the independence and the ability to be entrepreneurial.

However, over the years, I came across more Socialists than Conservatives.

(I met one Socialist contractor who called for "redistribution of wealth" while stashing cash in offshore accounts and claiming income support.)

Labour introduced IR35 but I suspect many still vote Labour

So how do contractors vote? and why?

I doubt you'll find any NewLie voters on here except for our Socialist friends, Jabber and Benno. They still think "sleaze" is shagging your secretary, rather than selling the country down the river for a few million in party donations.

How do those contractors born abroad with a tinge of yellow and in their skin and well skilled in the art of kung fu, vote?

Reminds me of that old joke.

How do Porcupines make love? Very carefully.

Someone once pointed out that most people on here would vote for Hitler if he reduced their tax bill.

It makes no difference who you vote. The fact is that Liebour are letting in more and more immigrants and making the process each for them to get in -- so that they will vote Liebour.

Well, we'll watch and wait on that one. NL seems capable of anything these days... When an immigrant worker secures their NI number, gets a permanent residence etc etc, I'd say they were well on their way.

If they are from a Commonwealth country (or one of the remaining colonies IIRC), and resident here, they can vote, as can Irish Nationals (but not madmen and members of the House of Lords).

Why do you think we have so many coming in from the sub-continent

As paranoid as it sounds, this is the crux of it. Securing political hegemony, accelerating the EU's agenda of the destruction of the nation state and furthering the multiculturalist’s cause are the underlying reasons for the left's championing of open door immigration policies both here, in Europe and Mexifornia.

At least with the EU, UK nationals can work in the EU. With the commonwealth, they can work here but they will do anything to stop us from us working their country.

Yes they can.

Labour are giving passports to illegal immigrants. Mainly by ignoring the criteria but also with amnesties. The last amnesty gave the vote to 80000 illegal immigrants (+dependents).

As Roy Hattersley said, "I dont believe that any ethnic group should be in a majority over others".

ie. it is Labour policy to ethniclly cleanse the British until they are 49% of the population.

What do you actually need to be able to vote? You just need to be on the electoral role. How does this happen? You get a form through the post asking for all adults of voting age. You fill it in, sign it and return it. You can now vote.

You do not need NI numbers, passport number or birth certs to get on the electoral role. There are no checks, just name, sign, your on.

In a stroke, the New Lie have another million fresh votes eager to please their hosts.

To be able to vote in a UK Parliamentary election, you must be:

Aged 18 or over,

A citizen of the UK, a Commonwealth country or the Republic of Ireland,

Resident in a constituency and on the electoral register, and

Not in a category barred from voting (see below).
In addition, British citizens who have lived abroad for up to 20 years may vote, and voters in Northern Ireland must have lived in the constituency for the previous three months.

In all, more than 44 million people meet these criteria.

Barred from voting

There are certain categories of people not allowed to vote:


Members of the House of Lords. The ejection of most hereditary peers from the Lords in 1999 means that they will be able to vote - and stand - for the first time in a general election.

Those in prison.

People convicted of electoral malpractice are barred for five years.

Echoing the rather arcane language of the legislation, "idiots" may not vote and "lunatics" only during their lucid periods. Those compulsorily detained in psychiatric hospitals, for example, cannot vote.

Yep, and when you sign the electoral letter, you agree to those terms. No checks are made to see if you are a citizen, it is all taken on trust.

If you think it is scrutinised, when NL have the most to gain by immigrant voters, you are fooling yourself.

Why would someone who's here illegally want to put their details down on the form? :rolleyes:

Edit: Most Brits have no interest in voting so why would we assume the mass flood of 'illegal' imigrants would be any different - according to some posts, no of them can speak english anyway. :D

Because it's an easy step towards "legalisation". Arrive, get NI number, get on electoral role, get drivers licence, etc.

Socialists by their very nature require control. That's why regulation always goes up under Labour.

The Tories tend towards self-reliance and letting you get on with your life. If you take a risk then generally it is down to you, but Right of Center tories will tend to believe that society should help you, but only get on your feet so to speak.

The Tories tend to encourage entreprenuership (New Labour Confuse this with big business).

So it would have to be the Tories.
