"If Conservative remainers want to stop Brexit they will have to vote Labour. Do you believe that many will?"

No, because Labour support Brexit as well - just a softer version.

Agreed. If there is a hung parliament, there will be no deals between the Lib Dems and either the Conservatives or Labour.

More likely, Labour will turn towards the SNP who will want their own referendum.

"If the Lib Dems deserve a place, the Brexit Party should also"

Agreed. And the Greens too.

No problem with keep calling elections but two of the last three were hung parliaments and we are about to enter our third general election in four and a half years.

How many general elections do we want before everyone gets fed up? Remember what Brenda from Bristol said.

If there are benefits to the Conservatives and downsides for Swinson then what are they afraid of?

I agree about not having Sturgeon in England, as in England we cannot vote for or against her party. But the Lib Dems have 609 candidates.

The election is not a choice between 'the blue one or the red one'. That is the media myth. When you look at your ballot paper, you will see other colours too.

Yes, let's have a serious debate - but between ALL the major party leaders.

The media miss the old days of two party politics, hence their bias towards them. They want politics to be like a football match - them v us - even if, as with Brexit, the two teams are kicking in the same direction.

It is a falsehood to still pretend that only two parties exist. And, in an election which was primarily caused by Brexit, there should be someone to put forward the Remain view.

Not only the Lib Dems but also the Brexit party and the Greens should have had a presence, based on recent election results and number of candidates.

I would have one in England with these five, one in Scotland which would include the SNP, and another in Wales to include Plaid Cymru.

The fact that the media will only have two of the leaders is clear bias towards their two parties, which over a third of the voters do not want. And it is no surprise that the familiar alliance of Conservatives and Labour back that decision, as they too are afraid of more and more people voting against them as we saw earlier this year in the locals and European elections.

Yes, I believe that if a party candidate dies then there is a postponement so the party can replace them (I think this happened in 2010) and if an independent candidate - such as Ronnie Carroll - passes, the election goes ahead and if he/she wins, then there is a by-election.

Let's wish good health to all candidates standing next month!

Well, like I said, you are not seeing it, not through your fault, but because it is being ignored.

For example, the Lib Dems announced a plan to give every adult £10,000 worth of adult education - and nothing. If the Conservatives had announced that, it would have been on every front page and TV news programme.

I agree that Corbyn's policies can be a bit flexible - especially in how he has been flirting with the SNP over IndyRef2 - but since the EU referendum, he has never once said that he wants to stay in the EU. A Labour majority government (which will not happen) will ensure Brexit takes place just like a Conservative government.
