    Last Election I voted for Labour, my 2 reasons for this is because my area is a solid Labour seat which no other party has been close to winning The second reason was I support the New Labour economic model, but I voted out of the EU because of my more right wing social views and thirdly my job relies on public sector money. But because of Corbyn i will not vote Labour in 2020 I may go for UKIP, because the lib dems want to go back into the EU, and the Greens are more despicable than Corbyn.
    I can't imagine UKIP will be much good to the public sector.

    I've always been Labour but since having work experience with Theresa May and seeing the shambles of labour if I could vote in an election tomorrow I would choose the conservatives, reluctantly but I'd be happy in the end.

    Labour or Lib Dems (the social democrats, not the orange bookers)

    Whichever one has more chance of beating the tories.

    I do wonder when Lib Dems will become a more viable and talked about force again what with all this insecurity in Labour. At some point people should probably forget about tuition fees and start remembering that the Lib Dems otherwise helped to temper the Conservative government in 2010-2015. Their mass loss of support last year seems like a case of cutting your nose off to spite your face.

    Reluctantly Lib Dem. Possibly labour if Corbyn is knocked out but I doubt it.
    I'm exactly the same

    UKIP
    the only party I ever voted for, in both 2014 and 2015.
    I don'r even know if I'll ever vote again now that they're basically finished
    I'm a libertarian capitalist and I know they aren't a perfect party for me, but they are far more pro-democracy than any other party, practically speaking. the lib dems have proven very well that they couldn't give two shits about the voters (and I don't just mean with the tuition fees jibe), the green party want to rule your economic life even more than the labour party do, and the toeies are just a bunch of liars to tell you the truth - I don't feel like voting for them would translate into a policy. because they will say "we'll do x" and do exactly the opposite, i.e. "we'll cut immigration down to the tens of thousands" and then went on to increase immigration to levels never seen before. also, remember that famous cast iron promise? yeah, the tories are nothing but chronic liars. just like labour (but that's needless to say)

    if I ever vote again, I'm not going to waste my vote on a party that isn't going to listen to me (tories, labour, fib-dims, etc)
    if I vote again, it will be not on the basis of seats, but on the basis of vote %s. I only voted UKIP, for example, not because I ever thought they'd get a seat in my area, but I wanted to show the country (in the voting stats) that I am not going to vote for any party which doesn't care about me. I want that known fully. tactical voting is for chumps - it's going to change nothing. the only thing that will change things is to punish political parties for not listening to you - and if that means *all* of them, then so be it. I am not an enabler of a fat career politician. I am a person who only votes for those who work to deserve it. UKIP did that by proving that they were very sincere about leaving the EU via a referendum. they were great, in some respect, even though they were never a perfect party. I actually believed that my vote for them meant policy translation. it's a shame that this will probably be the last time I will ever feel like that.
    I wouldn't give up hope yet if I were you. UKIP's still needed to make sure that post-brexit there'll be major changes to our immigration and military policies. They've overtaken the 'Dems and if Corbyn gets in they'll be a threat to Labour, as Labour will be disunited and un-electable. Maybe we'll end up with an opposition party that actually listens to the voters.

    I'm not so sure - UKIP have lost both their cause (the EU referendum - we had it, after all at least) and their leadership...I thought steven wolfe would have been pretty satisfying, but even he's not running now

    You've got a point there, I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    I back labour and corbyn. Labour has been leaning far too much into conservative territory, maybe to gain votes. But it's a sure fire way to lose my vote. Cameron pledged to protect disabled people because he was one of them, using his own disabled child as a political pawn piece. Then proceeded to hack away at the dignity of every disabled person spreading propaganda about benefit cheats and creating this whole culture of, why haven't I got what they have? Because disabled and/or poor people aren't allowed to have generous family and friends to help them have smart phones or premium tv. Because it's much easier to have the nation bickering over who should have an iPhone and sky TV, so benefit cuts can be pushed through than actually take on corporate tax evasion.

    Very much a Labour supporter. But the loyalty to the party is seriously being tested by Corbyn's leadership and the awful staff he has surrounded himself with.

    The party I support most is the TUSC, but if Labour is run by Corbyn, I will choose Labour. The Labour Party should be more socialist, or I will just vote for a truly socialist party if available. Right-wingers like Kendall should not be in the Labour Party.

    Conservatives are a bunch of self serving scum with a terrible environmental record, a desire to restrict trade unions, and are generally the party of big business. And their authoritarian tendencies.

    Labour under Corbyn oppose air strikes on ISIS. I can't support such a misguided policy and it alone is enough to be a deal breaker.

    Green party I oppose for the same reason as Corbyn's Labour, though the Greens have the added problems of wanting to ban pretty much all shooting, including pest control and the control of invasive species like grey squirrels and mink through shooting. Which would ironically put this "environment" party firmly in opposition to actual conservation organisations who all carry out control of species like rabbits, deer, grey squirrels, etc for conservation reasons. Not to mention the conservation benefits of responsibly managed shoots.

    Lib Dems are totally discredited and they are also too pro-EU for me.

    UKIP would be even worse with the environment than the Conservatives, given their climate change denial and the rampant anti-environmentalism.

    Give me a credible anti establishment party that genuinely wants political reforms, cares about the environment, but doesn't have such poorly thought out policies, and I would happily vote for them.
