I will be voting for the tories for the first time ever. How about you?

 

Think they have ran us very well recently.

Fucking idiot.

 

I don't know if I'll bother.  Old Kenneth will get in here if he's running, if he isn't some other chimp in a blue rosette will.

When Corbyn first took over I thought I would be voting for him at the next election but there is no chance now.

Why?

 

What changed between then and now?  24 hour a day propaganda really did a job on him.

I'm not sure any of them are worth my vote this time.

Neither seem to offer anything credible.

Quite right.  Old Theresa has a habit of doing the absolute opposite of what she says, how can anyone vote for that?  And Corbyn is intent on ruining all his good ideas by coupling them with shit ideas he's been hanging on to since the 80s.  What are the Libs and UKIP up to these days?

His change in stance on most topics in particular the EU. Plus I thought he would be genuine opposition but he isn't and his staff and supporters seem like some of the poisonous people around, doesn't say much about the man.

His problems are a lack of support from his own side, hanging on to one or two outdated ideals, 24 hour a day anti-propaganda.

 

It's a bit unfair to have a go at him for sharing your view on Europe and having a few nutjob supporters.

Although it's job done as far as I'm concerned, I'll vote ukip again. I know they won't win but any policies the tories nick off 'em, as they usually do is a winner for me. Just hope that a bit of pressure makes Teresa listen.

I just bumped into a mate who probably feels as passionately as you do about the EU.  He's voting Lib Dem on that principal.  That's an option for you.

Don't know, but i suspect that batshit cow Louise Mensch will accuse the Russians of somehow hacking the pencil in my local polling station.

Be interesting as old Clarkey boy suggested he wouldn't be standing next time around.

Usual load of bollocks . The party that tell the most convincing lies the fuck wits will vote for em . . Fuck the policies.  This country is fucked . some folk have even decided who they are voting for now and the decision to hold an election is only hours old . Just tells you everything you need to know about the electorate in Britain.

 

Look how many voted Brexit without knowing any details. 


Savchenko is free.

Not entirely sure. It was mentioned some time ago but all gone a bit quiet now though. Not sure which Monkey we'll get. I know it's a bit of a foregone conclusion in these parts as Labour don't help themselves in that you hear feck all from them until one of these comes along and then they pipe up. Even the limp Dems in their Jesus sandals and socks make more of a fist of it round here.

That's sadly how many people vote; 'My dad's always been a Labour man so I am too', 'I'll never forgive Thatcher so could never vote Conservatives' etc. I'd be astounded if most folk took even 10 minutes to even just briefly look at what policies are being proposed by which party. Most people just vote out of habit.
When I say "Go!", you say "Weeble!".

"Go!"...

When your voting area has been gerrymandered to look like this you might as well chuck your resources elsewhere if you aren't Tory

The map is a bit misleading to be fair, you get the bigger picture when you look at all of the areas that have been cut off at the border because they're likely to have a few plebs in.
