    We'll have two votes in the run up. One up to the 7th and then another for 8th to 12th.

    Still haven't a sincere clue but likely hold my nose and nominate the LibDem or Labour candidate.

    An Undecided option at this point wouldn’t be very interesting, but I guess it might have some curio to the actual result.

    Having looked at my local constituency since I voted on the last poll (Lib Dem), I've realised that it's a wasted vote as we had over 76% Labour vote, with only 2.6% for Lib Dems. Might as well just vote for Labour, they can't realistically be overturned.

    This is a complete misrepresentation of what happened. She lost the confidence of her MPs not because she lost her majority, it was because the deal she negotiated was not good enough for them to vote positively on. She lost her majority long before the meaningful votes took place.

    I was looking at the YouGov polls and what surprised me was that when asked about how the Govt has handled everything from Brexit, NHS, housing, education, etc, etc, etc it is all negative. Yet the Tories seem to be the favourite party to get back in. Are we a nation of masochists.

    Unchanged, I can't vote for either the Tories or Labour, given that they are both dishonest, incompetent, suffering elements of racism and pushing on with brexit.

    Given that, there aren't many options, so it remains lib dem for me.

    Being unhappy with group a doesn't imply that group b must be better.

    A result of first past the post. We'll see a majority Tory government from a minority vote again.

    Because the ERG wouldn't support it. So how has Boris convinced them to support a significantly worse version of the same deal? Simply by moving the goal posts and promising to use another trick to go for no-deal Brexit by running the clock down on the transition agreement, ie negotiating in bad faith, which pretty much sums up his whole life.

    So a mechanic does a ***** job on your car with brakes etc/etc/etc not being fixed/or poorly and your first thought seems to be 'I will go back to them as the other mechanic may be bad'

    More like being forced to pick between two abusive partners.

    True, but because of our antiquated FPTP system sometimes you're faced with choosing between the least worse. :(

    Is there anywhere you can see local polling? I want to vote tactically against the tories but am not sure of my best option.

    Different sites say different things.

    It is not a two party race, I have not voted for either of them since Blair's first Govt.

    Going on party rhetoric it seems they've either been told or maybe even signed up to supporting and voting for whatever version of Brexit get put before the HOC before they were allowed to stand as a Conservative MP in this election.
    The quickest one stop shop i found was the wiki entry.
