Anyone here genuinely changed their mind on who they will be voting for?

Found 7th Jun
Be honest.
Has any aspect of this election campaign made you decide to vote for a party other than the one you were originally going to vote for?

I was going to vote Labour, but due to a combination of unlikable Labour leaders and Theresa May wanting to deprive the most vulnerable amongst us, I am now tactically voting Liberal Democrats in order to try and keep the Conservatives out.
This despite my dislike for them for their u-turn around pretty much everything when they got into bed with Cameron in 2010.

Have any of you decided to vote differently?

Voting Labour for the first time in my life.

Yeah because she's done a fantastic job of it so far. Why has it taken 3 attacks in 3 months for something like this to be put forward?

Getting tough with terrorists isn't going to make the slightest bit of difference. These knobs *willingly* blow themselves up. I doubt they're going to be too bothered about their rights.

And no I'm not suggesting we shouldn't be tough, but that simply isn't enough and it if is then why has it not been done sooner? I don't trust a word she says and don't get why anyone else would either.

Do you think they act alone?

What would you see us do? Write them letters and say "please stop"?

Or more police on the beat at the cost of £2000 per year! X)

you can put a million police on the streets. But that's not the issue. The issue is the lack of power and red tape the police have. They can't do anything until they have strong evidence that an attack is going to happen. The human rights act need to be rewritten once we are out the EU.

I don't have the answer, sadly I don't think there is an instant fix answer either but how exactly is taking away their rights going to stop them? If someone wants to blow themselves up they will, nothing can stop them unless they're locked away in a cell on their own never to be released. And this will never happen if it's based on suspicions alone. Rights or no rights, it just will not happen.

And no I don't think they work alone, take away 1 and there's probably 3 more to take their place which makes it all the more complicated to deal with.

Like I say, I don't have the answers, I don't have any solutions. I genuinely wish I did but I don't. Having said that I don't believe May has any real answers either otherwise the last few attacks wouldn't have happened.

In fairness, I cant really disagree. I am angry not just that it happened, but reading comments effectively making the terrorists the victims who decided to retaliate.

I don't normally vote but I'll be voting Labour this time primarily because I'm sick of the Conservatives scapegoating the underprivileged.

How will she ever manage that?

The prime minister was the Home Secretary for 7 years. Failed her immigration targets. Reduced police numbers and armed police and she says the police are adequately resourced with the numbers they currently have. Its a shame the commissioner wasn't able to say what she really wanted to on police numbers.

Cannot vote for May, Abbott 'illness' has sealed it for me. I'm voting Labour. It's not a case of who I like, it's a case of whom I dislike the least.

You do know Theresa May is the person who dropped the Counter-Terrorism detention time from 28 days down to 14 in the first place yes?

Originally Gordo Brown proposed a 42 Counter-Terrorism detention time. Again, our lot (I presume you're Tory as well?) voted it down.

May is about as tough on terrorism as she is a hot piece of ass tbh.

Let's face it - we don't really care about the proles or reducing immigration anyway. Anyone with half a brain can see immigration is still climbing after 7 years in power and how many border patrol guards and police we've cut. We just have to pretend we care about the S-munchers long enough for the tax breaks and corporation tax cuts to kick in...

Why not?

It's great.

Labour under Corbyn will borrow borrow borrow until he bankrupts the country taking us into a recession.

Conservatives are the best option to deal with Brexit so vote the lady in with a large majority so she can get the job done.

Vote her out in 5 years if you want to but with Brexit the most important issue at the moment we need to give her the majority to get the job done.

Corbyn won't give you what you want but if you think May will, you're in cloud cuckoo land.

She mocks that Corbyn would be a shambles in negotiations but she then doesn't even have the balls to debate with him.

May won't Brexit.

More U-turns than a u-shaped bag of U-turns.

This GE is about wiggle room if/when full Brexit is abandoned.

Which, I'm told, it probably will be.

By the way people, can we try not to turn this into another generic terrorism related thread please? there are plenty of those on the first couple of pages of the forum already if you want to express your thoughts about that topic.

I want to gauge how many people have been politically swayed by what they've seen or heard in the current campaign.

​why haven't they got tough with terrorism before now and why have the Tories particularly MAY said she would cut immigration. ITS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN

Only four times twice today

Most of the attackers have been reported to the police or stood in public places waving IS flags. There's plenty of laws they've broken and could be arrested for but we did nothing other than watch. What good are internet controls when we can't even control open public radicalisation?
