There are lots of people who don't have a driving licence, so that argument falls flat. In a democracy, voting should be a choice not a compulsion.
If there is compulsory voting then there has to be a "none of the above" option, but what if that receives the most votes?
You are assuming that all those who voted Labour in 2015 will do so again this time around. In the meantime Corbyn has decimated Labour's standing in the polls, Bradshaw's success is far from assured.
Bradshaw is on dodgy ground. Now that Brexit is happening the UKIP supporters could turn back to the Tories, which makes his majority pretty thin. I think he will be lucky to hold onto the seat in the current climate, with Labour being at rock bottom, just as the LibDems are.
With that Retweet it sounds like Bradshaw could be nervous about retaining Exeter at the election.
I know nothing more about UKIP than you would.
@Lynne Why are you directing a question about UKIP policy at me? Hard and soft Brexit seems to mean different things to different people, but the most common definition of soft Brexit appears to be retaining freedom of movement, staying in the single market & continuing to pay fees to Brussels, and being bound by the ECJ. If we do all that then we haven't really left the EU at all, and the ...
We'll wait and see about that shall we? After losing 49 MPs at the last election it certainly can't get much worse for the LibDems, you could fit the whole parliamentary party in the back of a Transit van.
Wow, great comeback.
Who's stifling opposition? I'm just pointing out the ineffectiveness of voting for the LibDems. As for Turkey's postion in the EU, it was confirmed as a candidate country in 1999 and entry negotiations started in 2005, yet you manage to turn that around into some kind of lie by the Leave campaign.
