Why would a snap election mean I couldn't spoil my ballot?

A snap election will be my first time voting, and I definitely won't be abstaining.

Too many young people don't use their voices, and people have died for our right to vote. I'll vote every single election.

See I used to think like that, about people dying for our right to vote..but making myself vote, I say I would actually lean more towards Tories than Labour As I said, anything else is a wasted vote...and I would feel so wrong actually voting Tory when they basically would rather I crawl off to a corner and die so they can get their disabled numbers down :/ Voting for them would be destroying my life even more..its totaly against my personal best interests, however, I do now think Corbyn would utterly **** the country. For a few reasons..and some of them he has already decided he will definitely do..

Clegg ****ed the lib dems so much. They were gaining a lot of support..and might possibly have had a chance now, or soon in the future, to 'rule' on their own, instead of while shoved up Camerons backside.

Not voting when you are allowed to do so is also exercising your democratic right, to not support any of the options available

I totally agree... but a lot of good did come out of the coalition, but a lot of bad too. I look at it on balance. We got a lot of our stuff into power, and that's what a party is supposed to do but a lot of those policies went against our soul.

So officially, as they're not a party "yet", what are they? Are they still technically part of their previous parties, or can MPs be literally partyless?

Sure - they're just independents. There's a few others in parliament already who aren't members of a party

Oh okay, something at the back of my head was telling me they were still technically in their old parties, but were openly voting as a "block" with the others who were doing the same... not sure where that's from, but evidently not!
