Walaikum assalam,

SUre, I am voting, though I prefer not to say for whom. Lol, I never tell anyone tbh...it's our right to keep it secret.

However..I will not be voting Labour. THey have had plenty of time(12+yrs) to sort out this country. Their manifesto for this election is pointless...anything they promise should already have been done during their time in office.

Blair has also made it practically impossible IMO for Brown to be the next PM. Brown also has some answering to do during the time he was Chancellor. He deprived the boys and girls in the armed forces essential equipment on their tours of duty wherever that was. So BRown is not popular in regards to that.

Another thing to bear in mind when voting..just because any party says they will bring in certain policies, the policies still have to pass it through the House of Commons first, then the House of Lords. SO nothing from any of them is a foregone conclusion.

BUt I do follow the campaign closely and watch the tv debates each week.

Whatever the outcome of the election, whatever laws are passed, I believe we are to follow them whether we agree with them or not.

BUt something tells me there will be some debating amongst us in regards to this, lol.

Although in elections i try to vote on the best candidate locally rather then according to party.
