    Default General Election

    as I've stated b4 I'm not the political type but this coming election sticks out as what must be the most important decision in decades
    I feel compelled to vote but I have no idea who for
    from what I see they are all back stabbing barstewards who will say whatever they like for an x in the box
    no chance labour who are in Bed with wee cranky
    and I couldn't trust the torys as far as I could spit, guaranteed to shaft us up here as usual......
    help 🥴

    Understood 100%.

    Are you Pro- or Anti-Brexit?

    Understood. I share your view: my view on Scotland needing it's Independence having the same motivation as wanting to leave the EU (politicians close at hand and accountable, CFP etc.)

    Tough one.

    Can't vote Labour, Liberal, Green or SNP then.

    Tories are not your natural home though you would probably get a Brexit if you are ok to hold your nose when voting for the blighters… Then once they've delivered a non-reversible Brexit it'll need voting them out and electing someone else to deliver Scots independence.

    Brexit Party would do what it says on the tin, but not sure how busy they will be in Scotland or if you can look past the ordure of the Leader? Not sure what Brexit party's view on Scots independence is???

    It would be interesting to see who doorsteps you and if you can get them to convince you...

    Apologies, that's unenviable.

    I voted to leave and have been a Socialist since I could vote. My constituency is a Tory stronghold so never had a Labour MP. Problem I have is that I have fallen out with the Labour party as it is as many of the people who are leading the party are Remainers. I will vote for the Tory candidate as he is representing my view on Brexit.

    Wormo, vote with your conscience. What exactly have the tories achieved over the last ten years?? Unless you think trashing schools, hospitals, police, fire service, social care etc, dividing the country and making us a global laughing stock is some measure of success, then vote for any one else. As Johnson clearly said ‘Britain deserves better’ ..

    It sounds complicated for you wormo. You say you want Scottish independence which will never happen without an SNP strong government in Scotland represented in Westminster. The Conservatives alone will probably never allow an independence referendum for decades to come.

    However, the SNP say they want independence to get Scotland back into the European Union which you voted to leave and want to leave.

    It is a difficult decision for you sir.

    It still must be nice to make a decision to vote on politics rather than the sectarian headcount that will take place here in Northern Ireland in a few weeks.

    I thought it was the immigration policies of the previous Labour Government that had done that, they didn't have to sign up to their open immigration policy, subsequently Jack Straw has apologised ... half the Labour lot have never had a job outside politics, Corbyn has milked the system for the last 30 years and the half are millionaires and you think that they are in touch with the people? Its funny.
