In 2019 I voted for Prime Minister Boris Johnson , but I’m sort of disappointed . The lockdown was too late , and it didn’t reduce coronavirus deaths it just ruined the economy . Also other things like Huawei and High speed rail are unnecessary . What do you think

I regret not knowing more Corbyn and letting the press get to me.

We could have gotten something better than Boris.

I voted conservatives just because I wanted brexit to be finally over

Don't regret my vote as:

1) My seat was won by labour anyway (not that I wanted Labour to have it, but if I voted for someone else it wouldn't of made a difference).

2) There is no other party that even remotely shares even the smallest crumb of my political views, the tories are very close to that status as well, but they were the best in front of me at the time

I do however agree how they handled things wasn't great, but I am not surprised, would be been a bigger surprise if any party could of actually done better.

The debacle over Brexit, HS2, probation reform, etc. means Conservative voters knew they were voting for a government that were inept at governing.

No because I voted against Boris Johnson (not Jeremy Corbyn). I'm glad that in 6 months we've come to see what a disappointment he is. Only 4.5 years to go.

Nobody should regret the act of actuslly voting and having your voice heard, regretting how you voted based on future events is reasonable. Nobody could have predicted what was gonna happen with the Covid-19 situauton and it’s easy for any opposition party to say “well I would have done. “

Couldn't vote because I'm too young, but at the point of the election I was near the end of my tenure of being a Tory, solidifying that the Tories don't share my beliefs and values. Had I voted it would have probably been a tactical Tory vote just for brexit, which regretting it or not will depend on what happens between now and December.

Regret my decision but was not going to vote for Corbyn; much more likely to vote for Starmer in 2024

I never voted, but I'm glad that Boris became the PM, Teresa May in my opinion was trying to replace Margaret Thatcher, which she never could do. I was in favour of Brexit, until the government gave into peer pressure and from what I read, it is no longer going ahead.

No regrets. I don’t like the Conservative party but I’ll take it any day over modern Labour Party

My vote made no difference whatsoever, but I don't regret voting. Even though it was pointless to vote, at the bare minimum it means that I can justify commenting on politics if someone pulls the 'you can't complain about that because you didn't vote' card.

Was the tree all right and did its legal team demand compensation plus apology?

He should be the one to seek compensation for being interfered on polling day by a leave supporter
