Party titles

When deciding who to vote for at the general election, the clue is, as always, in the title.

Conservatives want to conserve our economic freedoms and successes, Labour prioritise jobs and working conditions, Liberals want to keep liberalising, and the Greens put the environment ahead of all else.

Meanwhile, the SNP want Scotland out of the UK, Plaid Cymru want Wales out of the UK, Sinn Féin want Northern Ireland out of the UK, and Ukip want the UK out of the European Union – and all regardless of the consequences.

We therefore have a choice between national parties with positive priorities and parochial parties with nationalist obsessions!
