There's only one credible and responsible option at this time.

I assume Theresa may would retain her seat... but on the other hand her constituency voted remain.

Re: Snap CF Poll: Who would you vote for on June 8th General Election?

Well this isn't a second EU referendum so hopefully people can put the good of the country ahead of a pipe dream but if the lib dems don't do very well that will do a lot to end the silly games some politicians are trying to play with brexit. This is about who is best to take us through the next challenge for the UK and i honestly don't see how there's any other option but the conservatives although i hope to see a marked decline in ukip support.

I can see : Bigger Tory majority or landslide. Labour possibly losing hundreds of seats. Liberal Democrats gaining some.

I think Tories will do very well at the expense of Labour. Liberal Democrat gains will be minor just because the FFTP makes it hard, I see their vote share rising more.

The Tories are hammering the sick, weak and disabled.

But Labour "led" by Corbyn is a joke.

So I have no idea which Party I'd vote for.

Never voted for the Conservatives in my life. But Brexit is so important; I will be voting Conservatives this time.

Re: Snap CF Poll: Who would you vote for on June 8th General Election?

On that particular issue Taf it's the cameron\osbourne legacy hitting hard where disability benefits are concerned and one of the few downsides of brexit is they will stand until brexit is resolved. I just hope the issue that is foremost in people's thinking is the practical best thing for the country and it isn't labour and sure as hell isn't the lib dems.

Sir Malcolm Rifkind: "I'm not being pessimistic (About Labour), I'm hugely optimistic. I think they are going to get slaughtered. It's going to be like Michael Foot, but worse."

I do wonder if Labour will hold up better than expected just because of voter loyalty.

I'd like to see the SNP get a kicking too.

Re: Snap CF Poll: Who would you vote for on June 8th General Election?

I have the feeling it's going to be rather boring. Tory majority increased but Labour hold up better than expected. Minor Lib Dem gains but not a breakthough and SNP hold most of their seats bar one or two that they lose to Liberals/Tories.
