DMcG BS: If I were a remainer... (116* d) RE: BS: If I were a remainer... 22 Mar 19


I think part of the answer, Big Al, is that elections are about a wide range of issues. Brexit is important, and has a major effect on lots of other issues, but it is not the only important one. Even manifestos are not a statement of what a party will do, but more a description of an approach to life, which informs you how the party will react to unanticipated events: floods, financial crashes, terrorist attacks and on and on.

For the last 30 years or so, I have made a point of reading all the manifestos of all the parties listed on my ballot paper and try to judge which is closest to my desires and also taking into account past voting records of the candidates if known.

So voting on a single issue is not for me.
