Following on from the last thread...

I'm also in Penning territory Skeletor. Angry old white man's dream.

BUT AT LEAST HE BUYS A ROUND NOW AND AGAIN FOR THE PUNTERS UP HEMEL FOOTBALL CLUB.

I've had to work with him at the council before. I say work with, more like he turned up and asked when the camera crew were getting there.

I voted like 2 weeks ago now :smugdog:

I don't think I've ever voted for the winning team.

Me neither, I'm 2-0 down on actual voting and 4-0 down including Clinton then Trump. Tbf, it's because my idea of equality is wrong, and the well off should be allowed to continue not paying taxes while poor people die at their expense.

When my side got into some power, Lib Dems, they formed a coalition with the Tories and committed political suicide. Maybe I subconsciously don't want to win.

i hate Pip the poster, i'm sure he's alright in real life (i'm not) but every post he makes about politics is aids

I appreciate what he's got to say even if I vehemently disagree.  It's good to know what the economist of the centre right think.  If only so you can think of ways to counter these arguments.
Making mistakes is how you learn.
Every generation must fight the same battles again and again and again. There is no final victory, and there is no final defeat, and so a little bit of history may help.
“What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?” If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system.
That is why no one with power likes democracy and that is why every generation must struggle to win it and keep it – including you and me, here and now.

Do students care about the rain? If they don't vote because of getting wet then frankly they should be f***ed regardless.

Not sure why Brexit is the only issue people are concerned with. Whoever wins this has 5 years in power, Brexit is expected to take 2 years (will take longer for the effects to hit), leaving whoever wins with 3 years free to do whatever the f*** they want.

May wants room to do a softer Brexit, IMO. If they have a big majority then they don't need to entertain the crazies in the party.

What are Corbyn's views on free trade deals? This is important because if you leave the EU, you're going to need to trade with other countries. You can't turn your back on the world. This is why I would vote Conservative.
is this a joke?
May has made her entire election campaign and her entire time as PM as wanting the exact opposite, in fact she even called for the snap GE under the guise of getting the exact opposite.

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.

Terrible in the NE, but got a bit better the last hour.  Won't make a difference here.  Labour will win heavily again, probably even bigger share than 2015.

As much as I agree Corbyn should step aside, (although I'm open to him staying for a transitional period) surely there should be an effort on the PLP's behalf to reconcile with the left of the party.  You get the impression though that they can't wait for this to get dirty again.   Which will only marginalise them with the membership we have now.
