    I can't really say. My impression is that a lot of people are fed up of IndyRef2 (and Sturgeon, it is certainly true that a lot of people don't like her with a passion) and may vote Conservative to send a message to the SNP that they don't want one (whereas in the past they would never have voted Conservative). But whether there are enough of them to put a dent in the SNP's representation I don't know. There are just as many people still adamant that we should be independent and going to vote SNP. So it will be interesting to see a) if the SNP lose any ground and b) where that's likely to come from. Maybe the Corbyn factor will get Labour voters out again in their former heartlands, I don't know. It'll be interesting, that's for sure.

    Who's scared of him though? I guess businesses are sacred of him because he is threatening to make things a lot harder for them. And a lot of people that will be taxed more heavily by him are a bit worried too, that's natural. But generally are people scared of him? I wouldn't say so. I think most of his opponents just don't see him as Prime Minister material.

    Personally, I think he'd be bad for the country at a time when we need more strength and presence in the world to make up for Brexit, but that's just my opinion. I do agree with some of what he says, such as better conditions for employees etc. Outside of that it's actually pretty irrelevant to me because a) I don't work or pay income tax and b) most of the taxes in Scotland are now set by our own parliament. But internationally I don't think Corbyn would be good for the country (not that May is particularly great either I hasten to add).

    I already know that I'll be disappointed with the election result.
