Who will you vote for in the next General Election?

Prime Minister Theresa May has announced plans to call a snap General Election on 8th June. 

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has welcomed the prime minister’s election announcement, calling it a “chance to vote for a government that will put the interests of the majority first”.

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said the vote on 8th June was a chance to “change the direction of your country”.

Ukip leader Paul Nuttall said: “We welcome the opportunity to take Ukip’s positive message to the country.

Green Party co-leader Caroline Lucas said the vote would give people a say over the UK’s future direction.

Parliament have now ratified the proposal so we will be heading to the Polling Stations again on 8th June 2017.

So when the time comes how will you be voting? Has your opinion changed post Brexit?

I will vote conservative because Corbyn is not up to the job and changes is opinions on all his
principles. On Nuclear it's now a maybe,on shot to kill its now yes, on police powers it's a ok, shame he didn't have the same feelings when his IRA friends were running riot???
People say he's a man of principle .it seems this man of principle brakes them quite easily just like pie crust when running for MP?????? Any goes principles what principles???????

The London mayor should check is own record on these terrorists attacks in London has he took over his office at the time of the televised documentary shouldn't he have followed this up?

I will vote Conservative, because I want continuity, not revolution. No party is going to satisfy everyone, so you should vote for the party that ticks the most boxes of your requirements. I do hope that after the election and Mrs May wins that Labour will rid themselves of Corbyn. The Labour party has helped poorer people in the past when they were electable with a moderate leader. Thirty years ago, Neil Kinnock got rid of 'Militant Tendency' only for them now to return calling themselves 'Momentum'. Marxist policies have been abandoned by so many countries, we do not need or want them in the UK.

The only Maxist states are North Korea and Venezuela and look at the mess of them. labour will just be a disaster. Mrs May though has shown she is not a leader as I just read "she has all the charisma of a fridge freezer". She is not strong ...she has made a huge mistake calling this election. Humans...the older I get the more I realise how stupid we all are and yes I include myself at the top of the pile in that statement!

Corbin will lead us back to the Union held 3 day weeks and push our National debt sky high.
May is the best choice however difficult it will be. I only wish the money spent on foreign aid would be spent sorting out our win country. Also why would people in social housing not have to pay the same as people that have struggled with a mortgage the whole of their working lives?

I think its a very difficult call, especially if like me you voted to remain. I feel let down by both the Conservatives and Labour so where is my choice. I could do something I have never done in my life and not vote, or I could spoil my voting paper but both are an empty protest. I will probably end up voting Lib Dem as their position reflects my own views.

This General Election is unique in that it is not a matter of just party politics but which party is publicly committed to delivering the entirety of the Referendum result. The Tories and UKIP.

With that in mind, I don't think we may vote on traditional party lines. Indeed, the voting population who took part in the Referendum must vote for the party declaring it will deliver on the result. If not, this GE becomes a re-run of the Referendum when such singular outreaches to the population are final, definitive and binding.

And that's the danger of this election - that it becomes a re-run of the Referendum, handing a victory to the likes of Gina Miller and the weakling Farron.

Who will I vote for? I'm not a party animal but well in favour of Brexit. Thus, since UKIP aren't fielding a candidate in our constituency I'm compelled to vote blue. The problem is, our local candidate is a weak, feeble man too fond of photos in the local press. I hope the Tory Party doesn't end up like him.

It is very, very frightening and embarrassing to think Mr. Corbyn, Miss Abbott and that Chi person could end up running our Country.
So my vote will be T. May, at least she sounds and looks confident. Mr Corbyn always looks scruffy, sounds weak, not very convincing at all.

May and her team, even as they implode over the issue of raising taxes and the shame of fraudulent election expenses, have broken promise after promise and now she doesn't even have the guts to publicly debate the Tory record and plans. Not what I call leadership! Corbyn is committing to the triple lock, to ensuring that our grandchildren can expect properly funded schools with free meals forprimary school kids, that pensioners won't have the things we contributed NI and tax for over decades stolen by the milk snatching party, who multinationals having to pay proper tax etc. He has brought in over 1/2 million members to the Labour Party who are happy. to see him as their leader. Read the policies and if you don't want to see even more than the million people who are forced to use food banks under the Tories, then I suggest some of you need to look behind the media moguls' headlines - many of whom are billionaires and don't even live in the UK!

I have every confidence that THE Tory party will negotiate a good deal with the EU outside of the single market. This will also provide us with great opportunities to trade freely with the rest of the world. By calling a general election, this will give Mrs May a significant majority to get on with the job, put to rest all the bemoaners such as; Tim Farron, Scotland's first minister, Nic Clegg, Peter Mandelson, Lord Hesletine, Tony Blair, Anna Suesbry and all those unelected members in the House of Lords.

I am disabled, they decided that I am fit for work even though partially paralysed by spinal damage from an accident later in life, they have slashed my benefits removed my car and home support, I have two teenagers who live with me who now cannot move out as they are low paid workers under 21 and can't afford to rent th their own property as the wages are so low, and the tories have stopped housing benefit for them! Brexit is important yes, but on a personal level this present government is pushing me and the rest of my family into poverty!

Labour have no intention of making alliances with the SNP, that is scare tactics used by the Tories and biased media, May is copying Cameron's rhetoric from the 2015 GE, has she no ideas of her own, maybe that's why she's frightened to go into debates, as she has to be told what to say by her advisors

People talk about benefits under the Tories but it wasn't any better under Labour. I had to go to a tribunal after suffering a stroke and that was under a Labour government. If you think Labour will do a good job just have a look at Wales. The assembly is run by Labour and things are not great in Wales. It has to be Tory there is no viable alternative can you Imagine a
Coalition of Labour Lib Dem or even worse Labour SNP?

do you have friends who are sick or disabled? if so you are condemning them to a very fragile existence, over 10,000 have died after being found fit for work or for the work related activity group. , the problem with labour are the blairite MP's who are at best tory light. This government and the coalition have borrowed more money than the last several labour governments. the difference is the tories hve given the money to their friends who have seen their wealth increase whilst all the middle and lower paid have seen their incomes drop. yes i can imagine a labour government

I am concerned about the NHS. I think if more money, time and effort went into providing good community care packages for all who are in need but most especially the very elderly, then at least in part our hospitals will be able to function better.
I am concerned about education. I would like to see the young people of today be given a broad based education including what is commonly referred to a 'the three Rs', sciences, humanities and the arts. I would like to see an end to testing at an early age and the reintroduction of technical colleges. I think many young people today are under pressure to go to university - anything less is seen as 'failure'
I am not in favour of developing the grammar school system!

If that woman gets a large majority then God help us all. We can say goodbye to the NHS, and decent education for our children, workers rights, environmental protection to name but a few. She hasn't called an election for the good of the country, it's because she knows that in 2 years we are going to be mired so deeply in Brexit negotiations and its dire consequences for the country that she won't stand a cat in hell's chance. This way she will get another 5 years to do as she pleases. I'm voting Lib Democrats and will fight her all the way.

I don't think there is much alternative to a vote for a Conservative Government. Labour have proven in the past to only run us into National Debt, give away our National identity and currently have a distinct leaning towards communism. Liberals under Tim Fallon are a waste of space. I sincerely believe that Teresa May will deliver a Brexit that is in the National interest and bring back control of our country.

No contest really - whilst I don't agree with all of May's policies I do believe she is the only option to be strong enough to get the best deal for Britain in the brexit negotiations. Even though the people voted for brexit I firmly believe the other political parties will try to overturn that decision or bow to EU pressure. Good luck Mrs May!

It has to be Mrs May - ok she changed her mind on an election - a woman's prerogative! Seriously though the lady is astute, is determined and has our best interests at heart. There will always be a division but right now the prospect of Mr Corbyn winning any seats for Labour is dire and as for the LibDems do they have a leader?
Trust Mrs May - she will do everything in her power to secure the best possible deal for Brexit. People have to remember that the country voted out and the sooner everyone put their backs behind Mrs May to be in the strongest possible position to negotiate on our behalf the better.

Earlier this year I came to the conclusion that all of us who want a more fair and equal society will probably always be in the the minority

Similarly those of us who wish for peaceful coexistence amongst all peoples regardless of what they think. feel or believe in are unlikely to see our wishes come true as so many are invested in the alternative

Some people will always have more than others but that doesn’t mean that everyone shouldn’t have enough

Contentment is achievable, and a good place to be, as long as you accept that there will always be others who are trying to turn the boat over

I’m not always right about things, but more often than not I am

The opportunity is now upon us to demonstrate that our actions are not only defined by self interest. So, if you want rid of the current Government and, you are not ideologically supportive of Conservatism, don’t over complicate matters by trying to second guess the future - just vote Labour …

Labour yes like most of what they represent however not sure about the Brexit side of things as I feel we should be more cautious whose coming here and an Australian type monitoring should be used and I don't want a soft Brexit . I am a UKIPPER but not sure they are strong enough since Nigel left to win this one!!!

I don't agree with a lot of the Conservative Partiy's Social policies but Brexit takes priority at the moment and I think as Theresa May has started to prepare the groundwork of negotiations, she should be allowed to finish. It is unfortunate that she has felt backed into a corner by dissidents, to call a snap election, but, on reflection I think she needs the affirmation of the electorate that we are behind her.

I worry that there is no opposition to the Conservatives. Too much power in the hands of one party is not a good thing as we have seen in many countries round the world. Clever of Mrs May to call the election now. Be interesting to see what the Liberals do as I think a lot of people who are remainers will vote liberal which will enable them to get more seats in Parliament perhaps to the detriment of Labour

Brilliant comment, Pete H. I have to agree. Now if Wilf had said that old Jeza had the charisma of a slug, that might have been more appropriate!

The conservatives are the only party that can help to remove the Scottish party from ruining our country.

i have no confidence in any one party, but I feel that we need someone who is going to deliver on Brexit. Mrs May appears to be the best bet, but I am not happy with some if their policies regarding hunting and pensions for 1950's ladies.

Another female prime minister I hope that she performs as well as the last one because apart from Mr Churchill the rest have been a disaster .

Labour had missed great opportunities for woman Leader - Barbara Castle, Margaret Beckett, Harriet Harman - the last 2 were superb stand-in Leaders. Sadly, the too-powerful Unions will never agree to a female Leader! 🙁

I want about 650 people with £500 only each to stand for parliament. Our battle cry “Britain to stay in the EU and become true Europeans” , this means ignoring the bits we don’t like, no prizes, we will take control of our borders, and leave everything the same for a number of years while for the dust settles. Sir Humphrey can continue to run the country, if he gets it wrong the Queen has the power to sack them.

The Germans and the Italians have tried a couple of times before to enforce their rules, we all know the out come the last couple of times, the Spanish’s had a siesta all they want is Gib, simples, put up the tax on fags so they are dearer in Gib than Spain, spend every penny raised on a stop-smoking campaign in Gib know one can argue with that. Malta loving showing their power over the old mother country. I could go on etc etc. Most of the original European countries, know they need some kind of border control to protect themselves from the Muslin invasion, but can’t say that out loaud as its not political correct. Europe has to crucify use Brits, If we get a good deal other will follow, and the EU will finish and Russia will mop all counties in the east of Europe. Bring back the day when we use battle ship to state our position in the World........by the way I have a manic, depressive illness and in the starting stage of a mania, so all my words are from a mad man talking, but thanks for taking your valuable time to read them, it was fun.

Conservatives don't have all the answers, but Corbyn doesn't even know the question. Get rid of him and replace him with someone who actually understands us, the people. I voted Labour for over 50 years but not in the last two elections. I think Ms May has the strongest party strength and regarding Brexit, she is fighting for US.

Interesting how she has chosen a time for a General Election which will more or less sweep the Election spending investigation under the carpet
