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.

I have never voted conservative as I was brought up labour, although as a landlord I have been leaning more towards conservative in recent years,I voted ukip in the last election and will vote brexit in the next one. My reason for this is that I want to leave the Eu. The thought of labour getting into power scares the s**t out of me so I wont be voting for them, I live in a strong conservative area but I won't vote for them either because of the way they are treating landlords so I am voting brexit even though I know the conservatives will win but I will feel better for it.

Well, at least our naughty monkey voted against the recent amendment.

Nahhh! He just tows the party line. He doesn't want to jeopardise his ministerial job (and its perks).

Actually, he was one of the so-called Labour rebels, so not toeing the line. That's probably worse as it may mean the the Leavers vote for him. I'm not sure if he's been unsuspended or is being an independent now.

There's a site "Manifesto 19 - Labour" where they're taking comments/suggestions for the next manifesto. This maybe handy re' 'tenant right to buy' opinions. It closes tomorrow at 11.59pm so will need to put comments in quick!

I voted Brexit last time but this time will be voting Conservative. York voted to remain but our Conservative MP is for leaving and has more or less voted that way. I don't see the Brexit candidate winning. Like many of you I don't see a real alternative to voting Conservative as the Brexit party are for a no deal exit, Labour is toxic while Corbyn is leader and seems to yoy-yo about in his opinions. The Lib Dems seem to be saying that they know better and will cancel the referendum result if they are able to. We voted Lib Dem in the council elections because we know the candidates and they have got things done locally but Jo Swinson doesn't come across to me as anything but a forceful know-it-all. On PRS policies I don't think any of the parties are worth voting for but what's the alternative?

I hate to disappoint you but if Labour get in there definitely won't be sufficient funding for the NHS for very long, beyond the initial honeymoon period. I lived through the 70s and remember the mess Labour policies made of our economy at that time.

Me to, 3 day week, petrol rationing, massive vat increases etc. etc. They did me a favour though, as I was made redundant as the firm I worked for went bust. I then started my own business from scratch in hard times and made it through. So thank you Labour. Every recent Labour Government has messed up, remember the note, Ex-Treasury secretary Liam Byrne's note to his successor: "there's no money left" and huge debt may I add.

I think that using what happened over 40 years ago is not a great example. We are a different world in general to back then.

You could just as easily say that if the conservatives win, interest rates will hit 15% as it did for them previously.

You've nicely summed up my position. I am in a Labour majority area, where the Tories have never won. I was thinking of voting for the Brexit Party but then checked the UKIP results for 2017, which were abysmal. A shift of about 6,000 votes to the Tories could get them in here. In 2017 Labour got about 22,000, the Tories about 10,000 and UKIP only about 1,000. Although there was a majority for the Brexit Party earlier this year in the Euro elections, that appears to be no predictor of what would happen in a General Election.
I am really disappointed that there is no Leave Alliance. I wrote an article about this but conservativehome would not publish it - I think it was seen as undermining Johnson's decision to go it alone. I think this is a mistake. Keeping the country safe from a Marxist Government should be the main priority by a long chalk and a Leave Alliance would greatly improve our chances of ensuring this. I could easily see the vote splitting in my area, thereby keeping the Labour incumbent in - who is not a Marxist, but who goes along with the extreme leadership.
