    I'm not voting for rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbishing Brexit charlatans, or the party wearing an "I'm With Stupid" t-shirt & standing next to the aforementioned.

    I'm living in a solid "hatstand with a Blue rosette" area. There isn't even a labour candidate listed yet, though I think they've got till 11th May to get the papers in. Anyway I'm probably voting green party if they bother to run a candidate.

    Re: General Election 2017 Poll.

    Previously voted Lib Deb, last time voted Labour - this time I've no idea if I'm being perfectly honest...probably Labour, although the prospect of a shambolic Brexit under them isn't particularly appealing. Given I'm struggling to decide on a national level I might base my choice on the individual candidate instead...

    Re: General Election 2017 Poll.

    I haven't decided who I'll vote for yet, but there are a couple of parties I certainly won't vote for (*), or at least, not while the current incumbent is leader.


    (*) Note - Yes, I'm aware I vote for an invividual candidate, not a party. But as, around here anyway, the candidates have been relative unknowns recently, it amounts (for me) to the same thing.

    It's been pointed out to me that some idiot closed this thread.

    In my defence, I'll point out that when scrolling on a tablet with a touch sceeen, sometimes things get 'clicked' unintentionally.

    Who was the 'idiot'? Absolutely no idea. Whatever. None. And I can't remember how to accsss the log file.


    Ahem. Nothing to see here. Move on, now.

    If the *last time we negotiated with the EU in any major way is anything to go by i wonder if it would be shambolic, Labour's defiantly had plenty of practice dealing with shambolic negotiations to resolve points of difference what with their constant infighting.

    *Fontainebleau and the UK rebate negotiations that arguably removed a decade long roadblock (the UK) from vetoing further EU integration.

    Re: General Election 2017 Poll.

    My area is another 'pig with a blue rosette, strong, stable, stable table strong' area, so my vote won't have any effect, but I'm going to go for the nearest other candidate that's not a lunatic or a fascist.

    Re: General Election 2017 Poll.

    I'm in the cotswolds; was thinking about defacing the local 'vote conservative' placard, decided instead to put up my own home-made placard next to it saying 'please don't ' but it had got taken down before I had a chance.

    Voting lib dems. If it were PR, I'd be voting greens 1st, currently lib dems 2nd and labour last, but lib dems actually stand a chance of beating tories in my district. We can but hope, but most people - even those under 40! - around here read the daily mail.

    Re: General Election 2017 Poll.

    I'm in a Tory safe seat - Tories have won here since 1929 and in 2015 they won with a clear majority (52.5%). UKIP and Labour were left fighting for 2nd and 3rd (18.8% and 18.4% respectively). Given that, I'm undecided whether to vote Labour to try and get them back ahead of UKIP, or simply spoil my ballot.

    Re: General Election 2017 Poll.

    First time that I've lived somewhere that is not safe Tory.
    Labour should do it where I am, but Tories have a chance and Lib Dems managed for a year in 2004 - 29% turnout!!!
    Looks like there's usually a Green candidate and if so, that's the way I'll go.

    Re: General Election 2017 Poll.

    ATM I don't know; that's if I even vote. I certainly don't want a weak 'brexit' negotiator, however suspect that this is the one topic that could currently sway the vote.

    Defacing the paper means nothing, and there is no quantifiable way to record a protest otherwise. I wish that there was a 'none of the above' option that actually meant something...

    The problem is the perception gap between reality & how the public feels, on this point. It's increasingly clear that May could not be doing much worse in negotiating with Europe, and is headed for a deal which will result in the most painful, economy-killing outcome for the entire UK. But she's portrayed as being "strong" in the media (rather than obstinate), and people might fall for it.

    Re: General Election 2017 Poll.

    Considering that the EU has a track record of not "negotiating", having someone strong enough to just walk away rather than be railroaded is a good thing. Mind you being smart enough to put systems in place to cope with that eventuality is a different matter...
    If Wisdom is the coordination of "knowledge and experience" and its deliberate use to improve well being then how come "Ignorance is bliss"

    You forgot to say she's stable too, only another 5 weeks of having to hear about strong and stable.
