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.

When I was very young, all children of 4 got free nursery places. I don't know if that was just our borough or everywhere. How come that stopped? We also got free higher education if we were not well-off (means tested). I really don't understand why we can't afford these things any more now that we actually pay more tax as NI is much higher than it was then.

I used to believe that, but honestly, they'll be just as bad the current lot - I mean they are even more stupid. Even after going to a good school, Corbyn only managed to scrape 2 Es at A level so I don't think he is bright enough to understand the economy. He also looks increasingly unwell On TV, so I'd be worried that he'll pop his clogs before 5 year is up. He's no spring chicken.

I can’t understand why anyone would vote Conservative. They have ruined the country, the economy and will do more stupid things that affect landlords. They also don’t care about you or me. They only care about money in their pockets - not yours.

Are you all really that scared of Corbyn? He’s not an idiot. Labour have big plans for all sectors and those will take up most of their time - not destroying landlords, they know the PRS is essential and they care about people on benefits so should raise the LHA rates to a reasonable level in the south.

I like the NHS, I want to see the country united again, can’t see that happening under Johnson, or with a hard Brexit that will decimate the economy. I think we’ll lose Scotland either way.

Have a conscience please. If you can think of one good reason to vote Tory (other than the alternative is worse), then please tell me.

There are plenty of other good reasons not to vote Labour but my "conscience" demands that all decent true Brits should prevent Corbyn becoming Prime Minister at all, repeat all, costs. If it means voting in a way they would otherwise not do then so be it. There are some decent Labour politicians but while the party is controlled as it is by a hard neo Marxist left , Corbyn must be stopped in his tracks at the Ballot Box from leading a Labour government.
KD South East surely you can see any person with his Marxist sympathies is unfit? Does it not shame you to be British when you hear him as he constantly has at worst supported our enemies or at best not condemned them, time and again.
His oppo McDonnell believes IRA terrorists should be elevated to status of martyrs. Does that not make you cringe?
All former Labour PM's were mere socialist pussy cats compared to Corbyn. They all though, and same would happen with Corbyn only it will happen big time with him, left the country broke after their time in office.
You seem to imply the current Brexit mess is not remotely down to Labour. Labour were avowed supporters of Brexit in their 2017 election manifesto. They said they would support getting it done. Turned out they changed their minds.
I and I expect many others could go on but if you can't see the truth then heaven help you.

I don't know your age, but you seem to be comparing today with a very different time when higher education was for the brightest few and not the masses who had to earn their living from fifteen or sixteen. We are all paying for this change, and not just in NI conributions. It started, I recall, under Labour, as a good wheeze to bring down the horrendous youth unemployment figures.

Spot on Richard, why can't some see this, Corbyn and his mates will break this country far worse than they did last time and who pays for it? The hard working middle earners such as my children that take nothing from the state but give plenty. Who do they think reduced the huge debt left by Labour last time, will any leftie or otherwise on this forum please answer my question honestly.

Out of interest, McDonalds INCREASE in borrowing of £55 billion per annum is approx. £1100 per annum for every working adult in this country every year. Where's it coming from, cloud cuckoo land I think,or can someone please tell me where else!!!!

Borrowing by a country is not the same as what you or I might get. The interest rates on borrowing are so low, as to be effectively negative by the time inflation is taken into consideration.

As to the posters above stating why you would want to vote Labour, I believe that they would put more money into the hands of the less well off. Yes, this would be at the expense of the more well off. However how you stimulate an economy is somewhat up for debate by the experts. Though many have said that by putting more money in the pockets of those with little to begin with, they will spend it. By giving it to those that already have money, they will put it into an account and forget about it.

The lower class when they spend their money will boost the local economy as they pay to simply live their lives. It could be seen that the less well offs having less money to spend is a reason why even big name stores on the high street are closing. They simply cannot afford "luxuries" like new clothes.
