Rachel Johnson, sister to the infamous Boris Johnson, our lovely FS, has joined the Lib Dems in protest for the Tories backing Brexit.

With both her brothers in the Tories, seems like there is a difference of political opinion in the Johnson family. :lol:

Does your family vote the same way? Or are there differences between you and your siblings etc?

We all sing from the same hymn sheet in terms of direct family. I dunno about the extended family, really.

My sister has never voted and doesn't care for politics whatsoever. Meanwhile, both my daddy and me are quite political! :lol: We slightly differ though; he's centre left, I'm centre right/centre.

Extended family are mostly lefties for me

I think one of my uncles might be UKIP but the more I think about it, the more I think the rest of us are probably the same. My Mam and Dad are both very political really, the dockers strikes etc ensured it.

We don't discuss votes in the general and local elections. We discuss the politics beforehand but our votes are private. There are 4 of us
For the brexit vote we had a 50/50 split so our family cannot be blamed either way, cancelling each other out!!!

We're mostly Labour supporting to varying degrees, I think some of them vote Lib Dem tactically though.

My old man is the most left-wing of us all, he'd be an arch Corbynista but he's long gone to the SNP.

I'm a lefty I think and support both Labour and Green party
My family is mainly labour but they do want tories but I don't think right now. But we kinda think it's unrealistic and stupid what Jeremy Corbyn is doing with some of his manifesto. Like wth. Also I'd really like Labour and green party in coalition it'll make my dream come true

My mother is Labour/Lib Dem, father I'm unsure about. He refuses to disclose his voting habits.

Amber Rudds brother is a Labour supporter I believe.

My parents are left wing to varying degrees, but I've gradually began to introduce right wing thought to the household.
