Corbyn is supporting it. It's on.
I hope we finally get that "coldest winter in 100 years" the Daily Express are always trumpeting. Keep the old racists indoors.
The concern on the other hand is students being registered in the wrong place.
So exciting, I hope everyone loses so we can have another one.
This will basically be Referendum THREE.
Ooh, on the day of my Christmas do. I will get smashed then drunkenly comment on Moopy all night.
It won't. They all live near me and they all seem to make a PARTICULAR EFFORT to go out when it's SNOWY and/or ICY. MUST GET MORE OF THAT FREE NHS TREATMENT
We all know how this is going to end anyway. It's all very depressing.
Thats the spirit!
That's Tories for you...trying to disenfranchise at the first opportunity. Scum.
Students can. of course, register both at their uni address and at home but it's a bugger and you have to call it at a certain point (or something).
I think it's going to be very tight again. I don't expect a majority. Maybe a coalition, but I can't see that happening either. The Lib Dems and Labour seem to be fighting amongst themselves when really they should be focusing on the common enemy.
I cannot see anything else other than a majority for the Tories. On the plus side they'll likely lost almost all their seats in Scotland bar a few in the borders.
Given that this election is 100% about Brexit whether the parties like it or now, there's no possible coalition.
Tories - Boris's deal or no deal
Labour - not Boris's deal and people's vote
Lib Dem - Remain
SNP - Remain
Assuming The Brexit Party get fuck all (the nightmare scenario being that they become the new DUP....), there is no commonality of position.
We're not quite in Judean People's Front territory here. The Lib Dems are now Yellow Tories, hoping to attract Remain Conservative voters. That's how they should be considered under Swinson.
Paddy Ashdown will be spinning so hard in his grave, he'll be posthumously convicted of illegal fracking.
Are Change UK even still a thing?
There's five of them left, but I'm not sure if they'll last to the election as the overwhelming likelihood is that they'd all lose their seats.
Are any of them even standing again?
oooh i forgot Kate Hoey was standing down. YIPPEE!
Are we not allowed to see who everyone voted for then in the poll?
Anna Soubry has confirmed she will. Nothing concrete from the other four yet as far as I can tell.
Yeah, there is this. There will be some traditional tory voters who vote Brexit Party, there will be some that vote Lib Dem, the Tories aren't as safe as they think.
Meanwhile a lot of Labour voters will swing because they want Brexit, or don't trust Corbyn. This is why I don't think there will be a majority, and why polls are a waste of time. ALL BETS ARE OFF.
I found a list of standing down mps. One has confirmed she will.
Wouldn't it be hilariously awful if we ended up with virtually the exact same result as 2017?
Have to say my biggest fear here is not the size of the biggest party but who actually is in it. I'm pretty certain the tories will be the biggest, but having already cast aside all their most moderate members, it paves the way for more right wing sycophants to make their way in. Wonderful.
Yes and no.
Lib Dem track record = Tory in sheep's clothing.
If the Lib Dems end up in a kingmaker position again, I have no idea what they'd do. Propping up Johnson would be antithetical to their Brexit stance, but I really don't think Jo Swinson would countenance putting Corbyn in Number 10 (and if Corbyn does perform better than the polls suggest, the odds of him agreeing to stand down to make way for a more palatable leader are slim/zero).
So, in all liklihood, another hung parliament with no progress whatsoever. - And that's probably the best case scenario! (The worst being a Tory majority or a Con/Brex coalition, obviously).
Yes, on the face of it. But there are a lot of marginals where one or the other could do better than the tories with a bit of clever campaigning, not that it'll happen.
I don’t know who I would vote for. I really don’t like any of them.
The SNP being such problematic faves at the moment isn’t helping.
The SNP certainly aren't as in vogue as they used to be, but in all honesty if this is about sending a message on Brexit, then they feel like the only option up here. Obviously there's a few seats where this isn't the case, like Jo Swinson's, but I can't see the Lib Dem vote solidifying enough to seriously challenge for the Tory seats.
Vote tactically then, look at whos mostly likely to oust the tories in your area and vote for them.
If being problematic is the only way we have the slight possibility of escaping this shit show then bring it on.
As much as I would hate to admit it, I think it will be a Tory majority this time actually.
There is public support for Boris - and not just from flat earthers.
Imma going Lib Dem. Most likely to beat Tories here.
Hang about - The Tories have now confirmed that they'll PULL the General Election bill if the amendments pass to allow 16-17 year olds and/or EU citizens to vote.
God knows what happens after that...
Such a bunch of absolute CHILDREN. Waaah-waaah, we'll take our ball home. FUCK OFF.
