UKIP will implode.
Labour will implode.
Lib Dems will gain ground, especially in Scotland.
SNP will lose ground but remain the majority in Scotland.
Tories will win but not as comfortably as before.

My 100% right predictions.

New poll, new chance to see just how [out of touch/morally superior] SONM is to the general public

Well one thing's certain, i'm not voting Labour this time.

Until they get themselves a credible leader who actually has the backing of his/her own MP's, then i see no point in propping up that omnishambles.

Can't see my vote really making much difference tbh, Kent's always going to be a massive Tory stronghold but can always hope they'll lose ground.

It's Lib Dems for me

I voted to remain in the EU and they are the only major party that represent me in that, it's an easy choice

Dunno if I'm voting at uni or home but either way I'm not likely to make any difference, Newcastle East's been Labour pretty much forever (yay) and Skipton and Ripon is one of the safest Tory seats in the country (boo), so I have the choice of voting Labour where they don't really need it or trying to tactically vote against the Tories somewhere they're never going to lose.

Yay for FPTP I guess

Hopefully I'll be back up in East Dunbartonshire by the election, but could still be dicking around in Leeds. If it's Bearsden then it'll be a contest between SNP and Lib Dem with Labour maybe making a showing.

Leeds was safely Labour last time, but that was before Corbyn so we'll see how things fall on that.

Looks like John Bercow will be standing again, I'll probably just vote for Bercow this time round, he's a decent bloke and an entertaining speaker at least.

This is going to be a pretty miserable election this time, hopefully Labour can hang on to most of it's seats, the party isn't beyond saving yet.

If only Yvette Cooper was leader

Didn't particularly want to vote Labour this time around, but they are the best bet keeping the Tories out here so Labour it is. Probably. I suppose I'll do some research on the candidates.

Farage announced he's not running, seems like the final nail in UKIP's coffin (hopefully)

I know what you mean. I nearly joined the tories before the whole Brexit disaster, so we all stumble in our faith...

Man, politics used to be so much funnier when the stakes were nonexistent. I miss when some Lib Dem MPs voting for a low stakes rise in tuition fees dominated the discourse for several years. Now, awful things happen every day and nobody bats an eye. They were simpler times, man.

Desensitisation and pessimism are definitely major problems now, hope this will buck the trend but after the last few votes kind of ready for another eton mess

It's the same old eton mess no matter who gets elected, so it's largely academic.

Seeing May pushing the immigration target numbers as a core point of her election campaign. I suppose that's the good thing about not hitting the targets you promised before, you can just use them again.

Look at you guys in your constituencies where your votes don't matter. Mine actually does. It went from Tory to Labour here last time out but then voted Leave, so no idea what's going to happen this time round. Going to stick to voting Labour myself, our MP actually seems like she's at least semi-competent and definitely deserves credit for keeping the city somewhat functioning during the 2015 floods by actually going out and getting information to people when the idiots who built a substation on a flood plain didn't do eton mess.

That said, if I didn't know who the Labour candidate was, I would be looking into Lib Dems maybe. Because holy eton mess my faith in Labour has collapsed. I had doubts in 2015, but that was mainly Ed Miliband I wasn't into. I've now lost faith in near enough the entire party now. Probably have more faith in Corbyn than Miliband, but how the party and him get on... yeah, no.

Also, I did one of those in depth policy quizzes that was going around last night and it said I was left wing as gooseberry fool. Still want to vote SNP, but England.

Lib Dem here, no more mistakes, I don't care if people will tell me it's a wasted vote.

If we can push the tories out then it'll be ace.

Feels a bit dick knowing my vote'll be cancelled out by my own family in part, but hey, what can you do.
