Discussion in 'Current Affairs & Debate' started by Madison, Jun 8, 2017.
Today's the day.
Vote early and vote often.
An impressive poll Madison.
I don't know if I'd prefer Corbyn to win. I want Theresa and the Tories to take responsibility over the mess that they have created. But I want them to lose their majority.
In the absence of a NEITHER option on Prime Minister I went for Terri so she can sort out her own shit, and the impending Labour leadership election will better in opposition.
My hopeful Portillo moments will be Hoey and SNP cunts John Nicolson and Pete Wishart losing their seats. If Alex Salmond lost too that would be marvellous but very unlikely.
I can't see Corbyn resigning. He's said he won't and he's a popular leader.
Pissing it down here. No canvassers outside the polling station. 2 old blokes standing at the door to the actual room sizing everyone up. The whole thing just feels awful.
I'm voting twice today. Can I vote on this poll twice?
I voted for Queen Corbz to SLAY my existence
(And my hole)
I have to admit, I found him quite hot when watching that debate the other day.
Voted Green this morning. Labour will win my constituency but I can't vote for Matthew Pennycook as he's a Tory in disguise.
You live in MY ENDZ?!
YOU live here? I've lived there for more than 3 years now.
I'm not the same constituency but yes, I live next door in Plumstead (Eltham constituency).
Which Cabinet members are notionally at risk? Alun Cairns for Vale of Glamorgan looks most likely, but that'd need Labour to overturn a 7k majority. Past that I can't see Labour taking out Amber Rudd in Hastings (4.8k) or Justine Greening in Putney (10k).
Gavin Barwell isn't in Cabinet but he's relatively high profile as Housing Minister - I reckon he could lose in Croydon Central.
I really want to put this as a fb status but nobody will know where it came from.
I was thinking Rudd was most at risk, but that's because I forget Wales existed.
I agree it's unlikely to happen this time around.
Yay - my decision to put Alliance down as an option has paid off.
Does Pingu live in Belfast East or Belfast South?
I thought Paul Mason was headed for the biggest Twitter breakdown but Ruby Tandoh'd really going for it. That's lesbian commitment for you.
Oh God I can't stand her. "don't @ me if you're a man" (!!!) INDEED!
I'm a little bit sad that Shirley isn't around for the traditional UP ALL NIGHT results thread.
How can we lure him back? Free flans and doughnuts? Cash bribes? A spade to dig that long-awaited man-sized hole under the patio?
I popped on a bit of rouge and wore my best bonnet for my interview with the exit pollers outside the polling station but there FUCKING WEREN'T ANY
OMG I've just recently started reading a book about a posh family living in Eltham. In 1914.
Is it the ones that bought Eltham Palace?
When are the results out?
Exit poll at 10pm. Two years ago it was incredibly reliable.
Despite terrential rain the voting here felt decidedly BRISK.
Have cast both of my votes. Exciting.
I was out door knocking for Labour last night and a did a leaflet drop in my constituency this morning.
All things going well I think we'll retain the seat.
Lots of young people voting in Brighton. But it'll always be between the Greens and Labour here. I can't see any significant change.
Here's a good guide for the night.
These are two of my very dearest friends
I'm kind of PAST CARING at this point but if MRS 'I'M NOT GOING TO TELL YOU WHAT I'M GOING TO DO BUT TRUST ME ANYWAY' MAY comes back with a SIMILARLY TINY MAJORITY I for one will LAUGH LIKE A FUCKING DRAIN
Are we converting this to the main evening topic or start a new one?
If someone doesn't tell you who they voted for that means they voted Tory, right?
This year's coveted award for the most candidate goes to BAMBOS CHARALAMBOUS (Labour, Enfield Southgate)
