                  • After having voted Tory in every election I致e been able to vote in, both in my local elections and in the general elections, I知 finally voting for something different this time.

                    For me, this is a single issue election - Brexit is fundamentally the single most important political issue to me. And I think that the most change of preventing it is voting Labour. But that doesn稚 mean I知 happy doing that - I知 not a fan of Corbyn or my local Labour MP or most of Labour痴 manifesto actually - I just think that the greatest chance of reversing Brexit is through electing a party that is neutral on the issue and who is willing to put it back to the people.

                    So Labour for me also.

                    • The last few days of reading and the latest YouGov stats have made me believe we’ll see a Tory majority sadly, I just think the message of “let’s forget the last three years and get Brexit done” is what will appeal most to the UK at this time. I can’t believe so many people trust Boris to run this place for five years.

                      • Yes, we are definitely going to get a Tory majority but unfortunately, I think it’ll be a hung parliament again - in other words, nothing will bloody change.

                        We are still a generation away from real change in British politics I think.

                        • I agree. However i wouldn't couldn't Labour out yet. More young people than ever registered to vote. I don't think it's going to be a big majority

                            Yeah but registering an intention is different to voting - also, my fear is that the “young person’s” vote is split between the aspirational Green Party and the Labour/Lib Dem parties.

                            • Honestly might just move abroad. British politics is such a mess and I’ve lost any faith in the GP - I truly think they’re brainwashed by the right-wing media

                              • Also the BBC has done itself irreparable damage this election. The right-wing have always been suspicious of them, and their obvious bias towards the Tories this election has lost them the left-wing

                                  I think a worrying amount of British people want to be brainwashed by right-wing propaganda, especially those from older generations. They want to believe all brown people are terrorists, the Polish are stealing our jobs and Christmas trees are to be banned in case a Muslim is offended, because it helps them hold on to their white British ideologies when the summers were long, you could leave your back door open and a pint of bitter was a shilling.

                                  We’re utterly obsessed in this country with the past and it damages so many people’s view of reality.

                                    This is not exclusive to the UK. Lots of people feel the same here, I'm afraid.

                                    • I'll be voting SNP as I always have done, because I believe they're the only party who can protect my country from the Tories. I find it unfathomable how anyone can vote or agree with the Tory agenda, especially anyone who is of colour or LGBT+ community.

                                      I'd like a labour government in the UK, but realistically the public are too far gone at this point through right wing brainwashing. It will take a national crisis to wake people up (eg when they sell the NHS, and people then can't afford to give birth, or receive medication for pre-existing medical conditions)… and even that will take years to sink in to people's heads.


                                      The Tory's have tapped into people's hate and are exploiting it, they've also created a bizarre aspiration for young people who vote for them "oh I want to have money, drive an Audi and vote tory" It's unbelievable.

                                        This is also great news for the people of Northern Ireland as you will finally have the same rights as the rest of the UK. It's important to outline however that this was not a choice made by the NI Assembly as they haven't been in session for such a long time (while still being paid BTW). These laws have been imposed upon NI from the UK government.

                                        Great news, but a shame these adults can't get their acts together and do their jobs that they are employed to do.

                                          Oh I completely agree. Come January 13th my marriage is legal. I don't even care how it happened. I lost faith in NI government a hella long time ago. Serves them right. They all take a break and NI moved forward

                                          • I’ve never seen so much myth busting go on before - literally every comment Boris makes is debunked on twitter or Facebook as being basically a lie.

                                            It’s both hilarious and extraordinary.

                                                    Not surprising. Bojo can barely string a coherent sentence together!
