With an impending General Election and none of the established political parties vying for the Landlord vote, will it be a case of holding your nose and supporting the least worst option?

As a snap shot for the PRS please be our guest in completing our polls below for who you would consider now and who you voted for in the last election.

If you would like to, please also let us know in the comments section below your reason for intending to cast that vote, and why you have changed your mind from 2017 if indeed you have.

The labour government of Tony Blair & Gordon Brown bear little resemblance to the labour party under Jeremy Corbyn & John McDonnel. A centre left Labour party has been taken over by the extreme left wing marxists. I have noticed they have tempered their tone and radical agenda to appeal to a broader base and not scare them off. At the same time, they are offering bribes to certain parts of the electorate to get their vote. Free fibre broadband in every household (including the outer hebrides) to increase UK productivity, the final cost of this and ongoing costs are enough alone are going to be spectacular. How will this increase productivity? Most people use the internet for entertainment like netflix, facebook & YouTube, how is that going to help the UK, it makes absolutely zero sense. Make no mistake, if they get in, they will create catastrophic long lasting damage to the UK economy and do everything to cling to power (aka their former buddy Maduro who they dont seem to mention anymore). They are wolves in sheeps clothing pushing a proven totally failed ideology. Whether we are in or out of the EU is completely insignificant against having a Corbyn government. For all sane people that want to live in a free democracy, do the right thing and stop Corbyn getting into power. Hopefully after that, Labour can move back to being a more practical and serious political force.

All the broadband stuff just makes me think that they haven't the technical expertise to know what they are talking about. It won't be free any more than a landline phone or your mains electricity is free. And what about the mobile phone networks? I don't think they mentioned providing those. It may be physically impossible to put fibre in some places and would take years any way, so they'd never actually have to do it as they'd get voted out again before it ever happened. I don't believe that most of them even know that long-distance wifi or satellite is no real use to business or those who work from home and need a VPN connection because of latency. Do they even know what latency is? Bread and circuses. Why not just offer a free TV licence to everyone for entertainment? Answer: it won't be free, there might not be an installation charge (but many companies waive that already), but I bet there'll be a line rental-style or useage charge. Free gas and electric would be more useful to those on low incomes. Bah humbug!

Yes, i lived in Australia and they implemented a national broadband initiative in 2007 which is estimated to be finished in 2021, way behind schedule and massively over budget with downgraded performance - and its not free! By the time the UK roll this out it will be superseded by 5G. There is no logical explanation for Labour’s initiative except as being a complete bribe to catch voters they think they would otherwise not get. Lets hope we dont get a nightmare on Friday the 13th!

Just sent to my Inbox by City am: https://www.cityam.com/new-poll-has-labour-closing-gap-on-tories/
I am utterly horrified that "Labour received a boost today from 168 economists who published a letter in the Financial Times in support of Corbyn’s radical economic agenda.
The signatories included former Bank of England rate-setter David Blanchflower, and professors from London School of Economics and Oxford."
I cannot believe which country I am living in... this is getting really dangerous

That poll will have been done a couple of days ago, before today's letter.

That's probably the bump from the Question Time debate a few days before.

If there is any bump from this, it will be seen in polls at the end of the week.

And they were lying about rents etc on TV on Monday or Tuesday (talking about rent control but not mentioning that rent rises have been shown to be below inflation)

Tony Blair has floated an idea gently that might take root.
His suggestion that the price of a coalition Government with the Lib Dems could be that Corbyn steps down.

Yes, I have read that. But also the issue here might not be only Corbynov himself, RED McDonnell is equally brainwashed and openly praises Marxism. LibDems are on course to annihilate PRS, so not much consolation here.

I have voted Conservative but I am still licking the wounds of voting Conservative in 2017 after their landlord friendly manifesto was embellished after the election with anti PRS tax policies adopted from the Green and Labour parties in their manifesto's. I am concerned the same will happen again, Conservatives get in and then they trawl other party manifestos for ideas to adopt! The fact that this current Conservative manifesto lacks detail is a concern! We are left with no alternative but to vote for them again with fingers crossed, just to keep Labour out!

That issue has been now confirmed across the newspapers in the UK - example here, but I have seen that even in FT:
