The Westminster general election has been called for July 4th.  With six weeks to go there's plenty of time for campaigning and changes of mind, but here's a poll to get some idea of how the denizens of the Shed plan to vote.  

 

The poll is not public.

 

There are a whopping 19 options, which should just about cover any of the significant choices, whether you're voting in Scotland, NI, Wales or England.  16 of the options cover the various groups who are expected to field candidates.  Some groups/parties only campaign in Wales or in NI, and they're labelled in brackets.  The other three options are undecided, not voting, and not eligible.

 

There are already threads for how much we hate the major political groups, but if you feel like posting to say why you're planning to vote the way you are, the thread's all yours.

Was undecided between Labour and a tactical vote for SNP to aid Conservatives not winning the seat for Labour to win it.  It will be a Labour vote.

Reluctantly.

 

Indeed.  Sometimes it's a case of voting for the lizards in case the wrong lizards get in.

 

I'm not eligible, but very interested all the same.

I'd rather shite in my hands and clap than vote for that wee smarmy Blairite wank, Douglas Alexander in East Lothian. 

 

SNP it is.

Scottish Labour are slimy arseholes.

All the other opposition parties in Scotland aren't worth thinking about.

SNP again for me.

 

However, I'm getting to the stage where I'm wishing their was a credible alternative up here.

It's a national election so you don't need to vote for any regional sub-party.  If you want to get rid of one party then there has to be an alternative vote.  

 

(Someone will go on about Scottish seats not deciding national elections but it doesn't mean it couldn't hinge on a small number of seats,  no matter where they are)

Most probably Labour, not because I am overly impressed by their leader but the Tory Government needs emptied. The SNP have to get their shit together before I will give them my vote again.

Once Scotland gets independence, then I'll consider voting for the non-tory arm of Labour.

SNP. Not that I'm particularly enamoured with them at the moment but there's no real alternative while Labour continue to be staunchly anti-indy.

Not one party worth voting for this time. 
 

I’m sure if they put ‘None of the above’ on the voting slip that option would win by a landslide.

Labour for me and hopefully the start of Labour north  and south of the border and we can finally put independence out of its misery.

In a break of my tradition, Labour. But await to see the detail behind their policies and stance on certain social issues. Failing that, could well spoil the ballot

ABC. 

 

In my constituency, that means a Labour vote. 

 

I can stomach that. Our MP's a decent enough chap and, as I've written elsewhere, a boring, mundane and vaguely competent PM will be a refreshing change from the shitshow of the last 14 years.

Spoiled ballot and I'll wait for a party that aligns with my views that also supports independence.

Labour for me. Not because I particularly want to but best of a bad, bad bunch.

I might vote but certainly not for any of the known parties that sit in WM or HR.

Undecided.

Want to vote SNP as I think independence is our best way forward.

But as a conservative might vote Labour as I'm sick of living in a thiefdom.

SNP romped the seat for my area last time with Labour miles behind the Tory candidate in third, so I'll probably vote SNP as the likeliest option to keep the Tories out.

He's horrible. The careerists already flocking back to a right-wing Labour now that power beckons.

Still holding on for dear life to the last threads of possible independence so probably SNP. I’m not a huge fan of their record in government but they could have a say in who governs at Westminster. Any cooperation or deal MUST include a referendum obviously 

 

if not for the independence issue I’d probably vote Tory. Just feel they can be trusted with the big items a bit more.

Christine carried out some excellent work for me, as one of her constituents. A terrific MP. Has served her constituency very well indeed. I'm sure Edinburgh West will rightly reward Christine's determination and hard work ethos, by voting her back in with a decisive majority. They would be foolish not to.

Only 2 possible contenders for me,  SNP need to regroup and rebuild, probably reluctantly back to  Labour this time
