Are there actually any decent politicians left in the world today? 

Where the UK is concerned we have a choice of Bundling Boris or Commie Corbyn from the two main parties  Sad

I will somewhat reluctantly go with Boris.

It's Johnson all the way for me. I could never ever vote for a guy who puts wreaths onto the graves of terrorists.

I know a loads of people around my way that have voted Labour all their lives but refuse to vote for Corbyn.

IMO it's a party of metropolitan liberals now rather than a normal working man. If they dumped Corbyn for a more moderate leader they'd be on for a landslide victory now.

That really is disturbing but sadly true.

Corbyn and Swinson proof that the scum always seem to rise to the top, Swinson's husband could be getting a 6 figure salary working for an EU Quango, i've read up on this a bit today, hence the edit. Corbyn was talking to the IRA 2 weeks after the Brighton bomb, no wonder they want 16 year olds to have the vote

How can anyone vote to put the future of this country into the hands of Swinson?

Just listening to her speak, does she have an education above comprehensive school level?

I'd rather take a steaming dump on my ballot paper than place an x next to a Tory candidate's name.

Also, I thought the election was about parties and policies, rather than individuals. Personally I think Corbyn is unelectable, but his party will still be getting my vote because my local Labour MP is fine and, in a marginal-ish seat, they need my vote as there's no way I'm going to enable another five years of Tory rule and everything that entails.

It saddens me that people distil such an important issue down to whether they like one person more than another. In this election more than any other in recent history, people need to see the bigger picture.

Just to chuck my two penneth into the ring while respecting the opinion of others.

No commie terrorist sympathiser or his party will ever get my vote and neither will some abnormal perverse Liberal Democrat leader or party either.

Surely then, voting to support your local candidate is ignoring the bigger picture?

If you filter out all the usual election mud slinging that's already going on, the bigger picture is (for the first time since I can remember), a choice between a return to a socialist driven state controlled society, and small state free market one.

I personally feel another election defeat for Corbyn will be enough for a moderate, more centre ground Labour leader to emerge and replace him. IMO any such new leader would really put a tory government under pressure and could very easily win an election in 5 years time.

I take your point Pap. And yes I think what you've suggested could well play out. However, by that time the Tories would've taken us out of the EU on either an appalling deal or no deal at all, and my view is that would be disastrous for the UK.

Yep that's fair enough for you to hold that opinion. It's not mine but I realise it's one held by many and has to be respected.

I'm sure in the years to come a new, moderate Labour party will see today's times as a lost decade for them.

Sadly I can foresee an outcome where Corbyn does a deal with the SNP to hold the balance of power on the condition of a Scottish independence vote that leads to the break up of the Union.
In my opinion that would be far more disastrous for both countries than Brexit.

It's not like there is any alternative regardless of the party delivering it.

Of course there is, but that's a conversation for the Europe - In or Out thread.
