    This is gonna be tricky, my MP is a former Tory who lost the whip because she doesn’t want Brexit. I’m going to vote for her if she stands because she’ll have more chance getting in than the Lib Dems but could split the vote and end up with Brexit party or Labour.

    Contradicts sharply with a poll just put up for my local area. LD's fourth behind tories, BP and labour.

    Lib Dem. Lifelong Labour voter but with their stance on brexit, generally for it, and the anti semitism fiasco, they don’t hold anything for me now. Maybe that’ll change once Corbyn has gone but I don’t know.

    They say you get more right wing the older you get and at 52 the move to the Lib Dem’s is as far to the right I want to go.

    Why would you have expected otherwise in East midlands? It's not a region they'd target.

    It would certainly make the next Parliamentary term interesting. Maybe ~15 MPs on the government benches with any real experience, backed by a few hundred newbies.

    Interesting, I think this ultimately might be the biggest issue for Labour, a split vote on the remain side... that would be catastrophic for both LD and Labour.

    Need to look at seats individually i'm afraid, it's not as simple as looking at the national picture.

    Not really, it was the same last time. I would vote them too if it weren't for the more screwball ideas they have and toned it down.

    None of the parties really represent my views so might as well draw a penis on the voting slip only concern is the conservatives might count it as a vote for boris

    Personally I can't understand why anyone would vote for anything but labour. Brexit is an extremely important issue but it's not the only issue. Labour are the only party who are trying to save the NHS from further privatisation.

    LOL

    What about the free tuition fees, substantial increase in minimum wage and the 4 day work week?

    Anyone else noticed the lack of noise from Farage ATM? I wonder if he and Cummings are discussing an election pact.

    Interesting.

    You know, I’m with @FoxEye - I think it’s go big or go home. Tactical voting encourages the two party system. I think it’s a brave Lib from vote from me :eek:

    From all the cons gained, it’s going to push away the moderates.
