AIBU to ask you who you would vote for if a General Election were to be called tomorrow?

And why would you vote that way? For you, do you vote for your party or for your local MP?

I am a Corbyn supporter but dislike my local MP for resigning from the front bench. Shame, because she's actually quite a good MP otherwise. I would probably still vote for her to get Labour into power but otherwise I would vote for the Greens.

I'd vote for any party that promised to scrap Brexit plans.

Euphemia Sun 02-Oct-16 14:03:55

SNP. I'm not pro-independence but the other parties are useless.

I'd vote for any party that promised to scrap Brexit plans.

Any election now would be heavily influence by Brexit, in part a 2nd referendum. If a Lib/Lab pact said that they were the anti Brexit ticket then the outcome may be interesting.

Voted labour all my life. Probably Lib Dems this time due to Corbyn.

Life long labour supporter but am really not fussed on corbyn, maybe Green if labour continue in the shambles they are currently in.

FoxesSitOnBoxes Sun 02-Oct-16 14:08:27

lib dem?? I don't know. I've been a member of the Labour Party since a teenager but can't bring myself to vote for Corbyn. Definitely couldn't vote Conservative.

Voted Labour all my life too (apart from a brief foray into Socialist Labour when I was in a snit one time).

I would probably vote Labour again, but the truth is where I live the Labour candidate doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell, whereas Lib Dems held the seat until the last election. So it is possible I would vote Lib Dem for the first time because I hate the Tories so much and blame Brexit entirely on Cameron (I know he didn't want it, but he made it possible.)

Labour or Corbyn basically.

KellyElly Sun 02-Oct-16 14:14:25

I wouldn't bother. Labour supporter all my life, but won't vote for them with their current 'leader'. No affiliation with any other party.

Realhousewivesofshit Sun 02-Oct-16 14:16:37

Definatly not Corbyn as he can't lead s party let alone a country. Completely stuck as always labour.

Brexit is happening so don't know why people keep whining on. And yes we are were remainders in our house.

Honestly no idea.

I could see that happening. A couple of parties campaigning on an Anti-Brexit platform could be very successful. After all, there were 48% of us who didn't want to leave and I'm sure you'd scoop up some of the middle ground as well. Pretty amazing really that nobody is coming out and saying they would reverse Brexit or take us back into Europe if they won.

Realhousewivesofshit Sun 02-Oct-16 14:20:40

Not wanting to rehash the whole Brexit debate but Cameron had no choice but to hold a referendum.

UKIP had millions of votes and large swathes of the country wanted out.

Both patries ran crap remain campaigns and if Cameron is to be blamed I hope people blame Corbyn just as much. If they had put aside their own fucking massive egos and campaigned together we would still be in.

The lib dems have said that they would campaign at the next election on a platform to rejoin the EU (assuming that the next election will be in 2020 and that we will have left by then).

Realhousewivesofshit Sun 02-Oct-16 14:22:59

What do you mean reverse Brexit? Have another referendum or just ignore the last one? I would bloody love us to remain but how is it possible legally and constitutionally? Could any government actually ignore the results then?

Lifeisontheup2 Sun 02-Oct-16 14:24:18

i really don't know, I won't to vote conservative unless they get rid of Jeremy Hunt but I can't vote Labour while Jeremy Corbyn is in charge as I believe he is a disastrous leader of his party so god only knows what sort of leader he would make for the country.

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 02-Oct-16 14:25:35

I think I'd have to vote Plaid Cymru.

I'd rather peel my own fingernails off than vote for May or Corbyn.

stitchglitched Sun 02-Oct-16 14:26:26

I've always voted Labour but they are currently a mess. I don't like Tim Farron and wouldn't vote for a party that calls me a 'non man' so that's Greens and Lib Dems out. So I have no idea.

Summerholsdoingmyheadin Sun 02-Oct-16 14:27:19

For the first time in my life I wouldn't vote. I can't bring myself to vote Corbyn. I would be tempted to vote Teresa may as I think she has strong leadership skills and I prefer her to previous Tory leaders but I can't bring myself to vote tories so I would have to abstain.

Summerholsdoingmyheadin Sun 02-Oct-16 14:27:47

I am life long labour BTW^

IamSwitzerland Sun 02-Oct-16 14:28:19

I would vote for AnyFucker.

Guavaf1sh Sun 02-Oct-16 14:28:41

Plaid Cymru

HubrisComicGhoul Sun 02-Oct-16 14:33:18

Unless there was a decent independent candidate I don't think I would bother voting (for the first time ever).

The Tories are devoted to destroying every public service, UKIP are disjointed (to put it politely), the Greens consider me to be a "non-man" so I don't trust them on women's issues and Labour are so divided they can't even be considered a party at the moment, let alone considered for government.

Labour need to close ranks and start to make the best of things, I don't care if they are unhappy about the leader (I'm not a fan of my manager), I just want them to stop acting like petulant children and do their jobs!

What's the non man thing?
