To still not know who to vote for?

Or whether it will make any difference anyway?
I don’t want Boris in power.
I don’t want Corbyn in power.
Jo will never win.
WTF do I do? And I’m not going to not vote, the referendum taught me how important my vote would have been.
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU
You have one vote. All votes are anonymous.

Don’t spoil your ballot paper. Vote for someone. Look up one of those online ‘which party are you most aligned with’ and that might help. You must have some leanings? Also have you read manifestos? Checked the leaders voting records to give an idea of what they supported/opposed.

Or - vote for Lib Dem’s if you support them. They may not get in this time but growing in popularity over the next couple of decades will only help them grow in power
Or - vote for the representative with the best approach to local issues
Or - vote tactically. I have a LD friend in a Labour safe seat who is voting Tory because he thinks if they see they have a chance in these areas it might pull them back from the far right a bit.

We’re voting tactically based on our opinions of Brexit. We can change government again in a few years but the consequences of Brexit will go on for much much longer. I can live with someone I don’t like as PM for a while in exchange for a chance to stop Brexit.

Vote for policies not people. I'm a labour voter and party member, I did not vote for Corbyn but weighed up against the other options I could not vote for anyone else. I believe we need to fight for the bedroom tax to be abolished, investment in public services and helping the most vulnerable in society.
