    Interesting to see how polls have changed
    Weeks ago the Tories were unbeatable. Then a disastrous manifesto and a embarrassing u turn from a campaign that was focusing on the capability of the leader above the party has helped narrow things.

    Corbin becoming more popular, despite not really foing anything major, has also had an effect. It'll be interesting to see if the Manchester effect takes a grip this week. Will ukip ride phoenix like from the ashes? will labour and it's perceived weaknesses against such an issue be a factor? Can the Tories convince the electorat?

    All opinions welcome

    All the people who left Labour to vote the fringe parties or who now can realise that Tories are terrible for the whole country must all unite to vote for Labour because fringe votes are wasting votes and making Labour weak! Corbyn can change things and then people can see how much better us Britain without Tories and then fringe parties can have a better opportunity in the future! :-D

    Well it's one theory certainly. Are you sure that Corbin will do all he claims, or indeed make things any bettet. Are you also sure that it can all be paid for?

    Seems in one poll that we could be in line for a hung parliament and another coalition. Trouble is one thing u can be sure of is that polls are completely unreliable

    No. I'm a ukip voter, I can't stand either of them. Both have economic plans that virtually collapse under any kind of scrutiny. May has basically said, no rises but everything's being cut to the bone, I don't believe the no rises, I can easily believe the cut to the bone. Labour has gone for its usual position of taxing everything and it'll probably deliver about as much help to people as it, or the Tories ever have,i.e none. I do not believe in tactical voting either. Choose ur political party and stick with them, don't flip flop and show virtually no political backbone by changing willynilly.

    Yeah I'll agree with you in that. However I don't believe labour are any more capable than any other party, when it comes to economic sustainability. In fact I'd be amazed if any were, and I include my own party in that statement. Future prophesising what you can and can't do with money is pretty disastrous by concept. You're basically playing a game in which everything goes your desired way 100 percent., an insane and ludicrous concept. I am pretty much the same as you, and most people, on politics. I don't agree with everything my party says by a long way, and I have views that may be construed as extreme right and left wing, as I imagine a lot do

    Overall my views are like the benjamin in animal farm who says 'no matter who you vote for, life inevitably gets worse'

    I've read the main parties manifestos and I can't say any of them speak to me nor do I like any of the leaders so I'm voting Green:-)
