candidate infomation[edit]

i would hope this will be expanded to to something more than their brexit stance. its not particularly illuminating otherwise AMassiveGay (talk) 23:42, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

I'm not sure how much point there is in having an extensive article on something that'll be old news by September. But info on the candidates could definitely be added elsewhere, e.g. in Conservative Party (UK), which is suboptimal, to say the least. --Annanoon (talk) 10:08, 31 May 2019 (UTC)
I'd say that it is worth having this page. We have pages on the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination and the 2020 Republican Party presidential nomination so it makes sense to have what is essentially the UK's equivalent. The candidates Brexit position is included as it is going to be the main issue of the contest, but certainly when the candidates start getting whittled it would be good to include more of their views. --RWRW (talk) 10:37, 31 May 2019 (UTC)
This will always be relevant as a subpage to Brexit anyway. — Dysk (contribs) 11:06, 31 May 2019 (UTC)
not really, the Brexit page, last time I looked, was mostly inconsequential dross, and this page is more a furtherance of that. what would be more interesting, more informative, is a look at what they might do once Brexit is done with. considering that some of these cunts are known to openly hostile to the NHS, and considering the Trumps recent attempt to fuck us over it, it is very relevant. but as this is likely to be done and dusted in a week, is it worth it here? as it stands with its current focus, is a waste of space. delete.

Why have a copy/paraphrase of [1]?
Why not have a RW vote on the subject - but including (None of the Above) and (Re-open Nominations) - and possibly Lord/Lady Buckethead (Manifesto here). Anna Livia (talk) 17:19, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
