So in light of the news of a general election on June 8th; what are peoples views on this? furthermore which party in your eyes is best for British military?

In response to the latter part of your question - none of them. The question is which ones are the least harmful.

Well this is an interesting development.

Polls (read: prophets of the Dark Side) apparently indicate a bluer future, May moves to consolidate power...

I'm just going to leave this here:

vote for greens, labour & libs, it makes no sense but could be good for a laugh, if everyone voted for libs and they won it would, scare the crap out of them:D

How would the voting work for someone who's in training? I'll be in Raleigh at the time of the vote, is it as easy as nominating a proxy or doing it via a postal ballot?

Yes to both.
Make sure you are a registered voter and you should get (to home address) information coming through. Last year, the amount of communications via letter, news, email, carrier pidgeon etc. sent out to make sure that all eligible could vote for/against Brexit was frankly astounding.
Don't forget - all governments / political parties will want your vote and make sure you can vote.
I believe there is also electronic voting now? (may be wrong though)
 
My dad was really proud to vote for me, he used to walk into the polling station and tell them all he was voting for his son who couldn't do it as he was away protecting the country. I was probably on the piss in Helston.

I shall vote for Jerry Corbyn but only if he adds the words "Mad Dog" between Jeremy and Corbyn on his election posters, badges, leaflets and general election bumf.

He won't, he's not UKIP.

Remembering it was the Fruitcakes who compelled the then Prime Minister to hold a Referendum.
Mr Cameron mistakenly, and foolishly, assumed there was no way he and his fellow Remainers could lose.

Fruitcakes, lunatics and head-the-balls are getting into positions of power all over the world. Maybe it's time we had one of our own?

I'm not voting for Corbyn for he is a useless twat.
Remember the media pics of his scruffy, unkempt front garden?
If the man can't even look after a postage stamp sized patch of garden how is
he capable of looking after a whole country?

Is Corbyn standing for election in your constituency?
If not you won't be allowed to vote for him.
