Six weeks ago, Rishi Sunak announced during a downpour that the next UK general election would be held on 4 July.

After all the TV debates, party political broadcasts, millions of words published in newspapers and online – and if you have been really (un) lucky face-to face canvassing – has anything really happened since then to change people’s minds about who they intend to vote for.

At the weekend, Nation.Cymru’s Martin Shipton described it as the most uninspiring general election campaign in living memory.

I get the impression that a lot of people are thinking along those lines and switching to Plaid. It requires a large suspension of disbelief to think that Starmer will do anything to strengthen devolved government in Cymru. As for Gething, he’ll be Starmer’s usefull idiot and nothing more – if he stays in office.

Labour is now problematic (Starmer) but we;ll still vote Labour to kick the Tories out – for a long long time. Important not to be complacent and assume a big majority so stay at home. Ditto not be picky, this is the way to get Tories out. I think people like Angela Rayner, Rachel Reeves, Burnham, Khan and the other mayors, George Brown, and a lot of campaigning organisations will pressure Labour in Government to make some good changes.

I would never vote tory, I had decided by autumn of 2020 that I could never support labour again because what keir starmer has said and done. Since then there has only been Plaid Cymru for me now and in the future.

Yes. Prior to the Westminster election being called I’d been intending to vote Labour because I live in an area of north-east Wales which has tended to return a Tory MP more often than not, though in 1997 and again in 2001 electors here voted Labour in. And that remained my intention for a brief while after a decidedly wet Tory PM stood in the rain to unexpectedly announce the 4th July election – because the absolute priority for me was to do my small bit to try to ensure that the post-Bunter Tories were consigned, at least for now,… Read more »

Until brexit vote was Labour for MP, been Plaid since, but Greens are interesting me more right now. Couldnever stomach a Labour vote again. Tory red is not my thing. They win this week and it will feel more of exactly the same. Their campaign has zero hope about it.
