    No they will work against each other so Labour get in.

    Reset the poll with them separate to see how it goes. Boris has said he'd never go into coalition with the Brexit Party.

    If anybody would like to know what happens once Jeremy Corbyn becomes PM, read 'A Very British Coup'.

    Their stance is ridiculous! They are trying to sit on the fence and all they’ll do is lose votes. They are in a no win situation but they’ve taken the worst path imo

    And how can you negotiate a deal that you don’t really believe in? And why would the eu even bother wasting their time? Their brexit position for this forthcoming election has been masterminded by an idiot!

    Time to stop Brexit and hopefully in the ugliest and least democratic way possible with the SNP and Lib Dems playing kingmaker to a minority Corbyn government. Tactical voting key to pulling this one off.

    Difficult to know how it’ll end up. I think it’ll be a small majority Tory government but it’s not clear cut. Tories will be obliterated in Scotland and may lose some seats to the Lib Dems down south. On the other hand Labour could lose some to the Tories. Not sure how many gains Labour could make. Any Labour lot shed any light?

    The Tories will almost certainly lose if the other parties can make a pact not to put up candidates in certain seats.

    As someone that wants to remain and also couldn't think of anything worse than Corbyn as PM, I'm very confused how to vote and what I want from this election.

    I don't want a Boris majority
    I really don't want a Corbyn majority
    Nobody else will get a majority.

    I'm thinking perhaps a Labour, Lib Dem, SNP coalition in which Lib Dem and SNP are able to temper Corbyns utterly ludicrous plans for the economy.

    Realistically I think it will either be a small Tory majority or even another minority government, because if they don't get a majority outright I don't see where their leg up is coming from (not convinced the Brexit Party will actually get many seats despite a chunky vote share).

    May I ask, why?

    I see you mentioned his policies on the economy but yet most of these policies are popular both in the UK and in Europe (most are policies already used in Scandinavian countries for example)

    Not voting can suggest you aren't arsed.

    Spoiling your ballot shows you're fed up imo.

    Spoiling ballots is pointless really and doesn't work if the intent is to express anger at the political status quo. The best way now to register a protest at the ballot box is vote for whoever scares the political establishment and mainstream parties most. You don't actually have to support anything you're voting for but any kind of uptick in support for the most radical far-left, far-right, eco extremist, religious fundamentalist or joke party/candidate that really shits them up more than any number of spoiled ballots can.

    Simliar kind of thing to the local elections earlier this year, but much more chaotic and organised. Fill the House of Commons with anarchists, communists, neo-Nazis, jihadists, animal rights extremists, doomsday cult bible-bashers and all kinds of other extremists and anti-politics types and the establishment will soon get the message.

    Depends who runs in your consistency. Just pick the most extreme and outlandish option or failing that the Brexit Party. There used to be some nutjob evangelical Christian that used to run in my local seat every GE that'd I'd of voted for this time, but he stopped running after 2015 so I'll probably just vote tactically for Labour seeing as it's a narrow Tory-held marginal.

    Some would suggest this is what happened in the Brexit referendum.

    Amber Rudd announed she's not standing in the general election, shame really as i wanted to see her reaction when her constuency of Hastings booted her out as she only has a majority of a few hundred and Hastings voted Leave by a large majority, oh well i still have the pleasure of seeing Sourby's reaction to come when she realises she needs to find a new job. :D
