The next General Election: who will you vote for?

UKIP annihilated, NHS saved (albeit in the short term), no elected party better than a bad elected party. This election delivered in droves!
Be careful of what you wish for. May will be disposed of as Tory leader before the year is out, possibly around the time of the annual conference. Remember it is not the MPs who ultimately choose the leader, it is the rank and file membership who in the past, when given the chance always pick the most right wing candidate. That membership will remember that they were denied the right to choose last time when Leadstrum was forced out of the contest by the Tory establishment whose choice has now backfired on them.
It would not surprise me if the next leader, and prime minister comes from the right of the party in the shape of Jacob Rees-Mogg. That would very likely lead to another general election 12 months later between Rees-Mogg and Corbyn.
Now whilst Corbyn and his cronies may be feeling pretty smug at the moment, it is worth remembering something; Labour did not actually win this election, May did badly because she fought an incredibility bad election claiming that she offered strong leadership when it was evident to everyone that she is actually incredibly weak and indecisive, and a Labour party with a decent leadership should have won this election. If Labour lost and a hard right Tory administration gained a working majority I wouldn't give NHS much chance of survival.

Corbyn said he would take us out of the single market and end free movement; I understand this is in his manifesto. No mandate for soft Brexit. Interesting.
The hard left of the labour party has always been eurosceptic. Remember the first referendum in 1975 was called by Wilson to appease his left wing back benchers, in the same way Cameron tried to appease his back benchers in 2016.

The next leader of the Tories will be either Ruth Davidson or Boris Johnson. Neither will dare destroy the NHS on the level that the austerity has/or Mrs May planned to had she got in on a decent majority.

The best thing to come out of this election is that the Daily Heil and The S*n ran campaigns to attempt to get their owners tax breaks under a Tory government and the people ignored them so much so that Kensington where the Mail HQ is based went red. We the people have the power no matter how much Theresa tries to ignore it

I cannot see the Tory rank and file electing an openly gay leader, and on top of that they would need a by election for Davidson to be elected to the commons first.

With the BREXIT fiasco developing , with the " Remainers " , Theresa May and Philip Hammond , it NOW has to be UKIP , for a proper BREXIT.

Over to you , Sir Nigel Farage , to SPEED up this process !...
