I don't agree with this.

There are many positive ways to make a political impact.

Voting is lazy, getting real takes effort.



what like riot and civil disobeniense, or just protests? Done all of them and only results we've had were poll tax and fox hunting the way I see it. Would do it again for something important but only voted today

Yo, UK, who you voted for, if I may ask?

Nah, not voting is a reasonable protest in itself and, if you are British, you have a god given right to complain

Conservative - through gritted teeth.

Are there any early results yet giving us an idea who's ahead in the polls ?

Is the race down to only May and Corbyn at this point ?

I'm actually ashamed of how little I know about Britain's political scene; alto I love to watch your Parliament discussions, they are very amusing.

Conservatives because of their hard Brexit policy, I assume?

No not really - just the best of a bad bunch.
I think May is going to get steam rollered in the BREXIT negotiations, but she will at least put up a better fight.

Exit polls are against the law to be shown until when the voting stops at 10PM, same there is no politics allowed on tv until 10pm British time

Exit polls are out at 10pm UK time - two and half hrs time.

It is pretty much May vs Corbyn for Prime Minister, yes.

Yes, there are many ways to make a political impact.

Still, vote first.

Then complain.

I guess that explains why I'm not able to find any hints as to what direction it's going in.

Guess we'll all have to patiently wait to see which skallywag gets to sit on the throne. Speaking as a Canadian on the outside looking in (but a commonwealth brethren nonetheless), I don't see any candidates that I agree wholeheartedly with.

So I'm kind of on the fence with this one... I imagine you guys are all chomping at the bit not completely happy with the choices either ?

Is there some kind of law about what you can watch on election day?


In the UK on election day there is a convention that all campaigning and reporting stops. Time for people to vote.

Personally, I agree with it.

EDIT to add I am returning from to the West Country having spent the day in London. Anyone on the Exeter St David's train? I'll get picked up and go an vote. Won't say for who.
edit on 8/6/2017 by paraphi because: (no reason given)

OK, complaining is definitely a right that you have.

I don't agree that it is a 'reasonable' protest, though. More reasonable (for a Brit) would be to vote for the Jedi party

Just logged on today after heading out in the rain to vote

I think its a pretty sad state of affairs on ATS that this is not at the top of the home page right now.

This election could see the biggest change in UK politics in years.

Agree - though more Americans than Brits on ATS.
Only so many are interested in politics.
