A hard or soft Brexit? Hard, because otherwise, it wouldn't be Brexit. (I also disagree with you using this politically biased term)

Education? I will vote for the party that provides students who want to do well with opportunities, so I want grammar schools.

The housing market?Luckily Brexit may cause them to fall, but I don't want the government playing around too much.

To get my vote, they must prioritise Brexit, keep taxes low, not borrow too much (therefore spending loads too) and frankly the party needs a strong leader. We need a strong figure in this time, it is essential.

I'd just like the NHS to not explode and somebody to repeal that thing that forces BT to store my porn for Theresa May's perusal whenever she fancies. Brexit's a bit of a mess either way so eh

Brexit - has to be hard. I would have voted for Brexit, but the referendum was 29 days before my 18th birthday (or round 29 days). I would have voted leave. Outside the EU we can have the laws we want, we don't have to pay money to be a part of it, and we can negotiate trade deals elsewhere.

Education - say no to grammar schools. Education not segregation. How else are people going to learn than by being taught by people who are better than them, and by teaching those who aren't as good?

I'm gonna say Brexit and Education due to where I am in life right now.

Leaving EU at this point in time is not a good idea, I don't think the political and economic climate is right for a big change... what are we gonna do "codify a constitution" now?

Education because the fees are getting higher but the benefits of education are staying the same

Housing affordable to buy (not 'affordable' under 450k. ) and rent.( More social housing and longer term leases as in Europe ).

Proper investment into NHS to stop lengthening waiting lists not privatisation of same for private profits.

No limiting education opportunities to the few (ie Grammar Schools) education for all ! Cancel University fees.

Public ownership of the railways, energy ( Gas & Electricity. ) Apparently it's OK to have foreign governments owning our services but not our own. Madness.

Education - but my views are 1/2 and 1/2 of opposing parties
I'm pro grammar schools (Tory policy) but also want uni fees decreased (Labour policy)
I can't vote (17) but I don't know who'd get my vote if I could, but I'd probably sway towards Tory?
With both labour and the tories I strongly back some polices and strongly disagree with others - almost glad I can't vote it's so confusing

Probably Brexit - of course, if this wasn't the issue then it would be education. I'm a strong advocate of grammar schools, I know that it can benefit a lot of children.

The Labour party should put pictures of his legs all over their manifesto, maybe then they'll stand a chance. Worth a shot...nothing to lose.

I actually find it a disgrace the environment is not mentioned here yet and that it isn't even the biggest debate this election. Humanity might die in a hundred years because of climate change. Why doesn't anyone seem to care?

Normally i would consider the policies from as many parties as possible to base my decision however this election i am somewhat trapped because of Corbyn's extremist views on things like the monarchy, the union, foreign policy.. So it's pretty much guaranteed that i will have to vote Tory.

In terms of the issues that i would be looking at were this not the case..

1) Tax - More specifically who will tax those on <£30k the least. In 2015 this was the Tories and Liberal Democrats because Labour had the stupid idea of creating a narrow 10% band instead of raising the threshold like the others.

2) Housing - I'm rather hoping the Tories steal the Labour plan of building 100,000 annual council/housing association homes and keep the right to buy on top of private sector development however the other way to do it is to expand the Tory 2015 policy which was to abolish taxation for first time buyers and give them the discount.

3) Foreign policy - In the Obama years we saw what happens when the US is less aggressive, Russia has been opposing us in proxy wars in Syria and Ukraine, ISIS was created and has attacked France especially a number of times plus London and North Korea has carried on building nukes (though it lacks a decent delivery system). I feel that at this time especially we need a government who will not cow to public opinion and sit back as innocent people are slaughtered by Barrel Bombs or Sarin.

Brexit - Although i consider referenda a very bad idea i think it's ludicrous that the Liberal Democrats oppose the result and as somebody that voted for sovereignty i believe a hard Brexit is of importance. I very much believe that no deal is better than a bad deal and based on what Merkel has said this week, i would not sign any deal.
