Will you vote?
Who will you vote for?....

Hmmm, Tory Red doesn't seem so appealing to me right now. Two years for someone believable to construct a new party for the left that follows the original ethics of Labour.

Unless the Conservatives turn things around or Labour suddenly become inspirational then I might vote for the Greens.

I’ve always voted Lib Dems and will do so again. I just hope that millions do the same and abandon the two major parties, as they both past it, have no solutions to the current problems, are corrupt liars and as untrustworthy as never before.

The LibDems have had their own scandals but generally speaking the public are only interested in what the incumbent party are doing so much of the other parties going's on are swept under the carpet.

I'd never vote Lib Dem or Tory so that's off my list. The green Party are on the rise in popularity right now as Labour as losing favour.

I'll be voting tactically, for anyone that can dispose of these narcissistic sociopaths. First priority is to annihilate the scum.

Agreed, however if that better option asises that people are asking for I'd have to go for that.

Seems the only way to get rid of the blue is to vote red.

If you live in a safe seat there's no point voting at all unless you are voting for the one who is going to win it.

Apathy is surrender JiS. That's exactly how they want you to think.

Always vote for the party you want to win. That is the only true and honest way forward. If the nation had been voting honestly for the past couple of decades the picture would be very different now.

I don't want anyone to win. I've lived long enough not to bother with any of them.

Wow, surprised by that, someone is going to win and if wr aren't voting things really aren't going to change at all, we're already in a state...general strike on its way... France has the right idea...

Whoever is in charge faces the same issues as current incumbent - so if we want better public services they have to be funded by higher taxes - or more borrowing - and we saw where that gets us with the Truss fiasco.

There was complete uproar about the mere 1.25% temporary increase in NI rates.

Too many of the Electorate seem to still believe that in the now firmly established global economy that UK can expect to have continual increases in living standards.

The greedy can well afford to re build society Boyd. Especially with a little imagination and inventiveness.

Unless UK wages fall so as to be more on par with Asia etc we shall lose more paid jobs via combo of offshoring/automation.

Since 1970s peak - wage growth has halved in each later decade

Whoever is in charge will have a hell of a lot of repairing to do after this lot that's for sure. But the way things are now, having our human rights slaughtered to pieces, that can't go on, continuing with high levels of corruption on the Tory side cannot go on. Squandering all of thenwealth whilst people live in poverty, cannot go on. Politicians in high wages claiming hundreds of thousands in expenses can't go on.And nobody can answer me why Boris Johnson is having a tax payer funded trip to Ukraine right now either to ask for even more support for Ukraine. Whatever dealings he's having there cannot be good either.

The so called greedy are also paying most of the taxes.

If there was a simple magic bullet solution - doubtless Starmer would have shouted it from the rooftops.

The last Labour incumbent famously left the note saying - there is no money left!
