Was pissing down when I voted and there was a canny stream of voters...and water...but mainly voters.

Weather is f***ing atrocious like.  Not sure what it's like elsewhere but I'll be very surprised if it doesn't affect the vote turnout. :undecided:

Hasn't rained in London yet today fwiw, been grey all day though.

Genuinely a relief, proper vulgar up here.

Everywhere else bad, or Scottish bad?

Hmm, good question.  I've seen worse last week, but it's bad enough.  I'm just panicking man, my reputation is riding on this great victory I'm so certain of. :kasper: :whistle:

Had some utter fuckwit customer in work the other day stand a bleat on for about 10 minutes about how Tommy Robinson and 'the ones on youtube' were revealing the truth about muslim immigrants and how Enoch Powell was right. There really is no hope.

Think you've got 2/3 with this one Bluf.

I apologise in advance man.  If you think you're going to feel sick at a crushing defeat, spare a thought.  I'm going to struggle to ever come out of my drug-induced stupor as it'll just too sore. :lol:

Labour odds shortening ever so slightly as the day progresses - still well odds against but maybe stories about high turnout are starting to filter through....

i know, i know, this just isn't the day for me to be seeing a right-leaning economist or whatever he is drawing very strange (to me) conclusions about the uk political system

apologies pip, no baseball bat
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Urgh.  Wouldn't enjoy that.

Can't really decide what to expect, can't see a Labour majority or hung Parliament with Lib Dems or SNP going into coalition.  If Labout have made gains I can't see Corbyn leaving even after a loss.

If May ends up with less seats than when she needlessly called an election it's going to make her look massively f***ing stupid, could be the first person to win and election and then resign.  You never know, might be that the results start coming in and we find we've underestimated the youth turnout when drawing up the predictions, but I'm afraid even with May hiding and ballsing everything up, tabloids saying Corbyn is a loony terrorist is enough to spook the older vote into coming out in Droves for her.

Isn't it written by Joe Watts the raving Blairite? Could be wrong...

I went in at lunch time to vote, I was the only one there. It was the same at the local elections last month and that was a low turnout. In all honesty my seat doesn't need that many people to turn out as it should be an easy Labour win, but if the pattern is repeated across the country then there could easily be trouble.

Soaked, but voted.  Considered giving SNP my vote in the last seconds, but... NAH.  It'll only be used as an independence endorsement.

There is a fair point to be made that a split in the anti-Tory vote will let them in the backdoor.
