After 3 years of parliamentary deadlock we are getting another election.

Masterstroke by BoJo?
Brainfart?

The guardian was a good read tonight, proper meltdown in the comments between worrying that people studying for degrees might not be able to figure out how to vote or not want to go out in the dark through to others hoping old people slip on ice so can't vote the "wrong" way.

Labour remain MPs resigning, SNP looking to clean up in Scotland and lib Dems lying through their teeth, just wanting enough MPs to be offered the lower bunk in a Tory coalition.

At least we might, just might have a majority of some sort and I can watch sky news without that annoying megaphone bloke in the background.

What is the vote for?

Is this a new brexit vote?

General election.
Voting for the MPs and the government.

But wont that result in everyone going back to arguing over brexit?

Or is there a chance that the ones elected will all want to leave?

From what I can tell about uk politics no one seems to have a majority over the rest.

Will be interesting to see manifestos. Could be a hung Parliament .

That's the million dollar question.

If Tories, Brexit party and Labour leavers increase their share of the vote, then Brexit gets done faster, if it's another hung parliament, then we have years and years of wrangling, if lib Dems somehow get in, anything could happen, because you can't trust them on anything.

Not sure manifestos will matter too much beyond leave or remain this time.

You folks do sure seem to vote a lot.

Is this because you're confirming how meaningless your votes appear to be?

When was Brexit again?

That's what I mean, the parties are going to have to pin their colours on whatever pigs arse of a Brexit solution they want.

It's going to be a single issue election.

Sounds a bit like a referendum.

That's the thing, they've all messed around so much that there really is only one issue now.

Yeah, certainly felt like my vote was worthless the last few years.

I wonder who will get the the Christmas present the key's to no. 10?

Wonder what Nigel's plans are? That'll put the cat among the pigeons.


Bleak time for remainers ...... starting 2020 looking for a job.


Saw Corbyn on the news hard to believe he thinks he's in with a chance

Corbyns trouble is the remainers in his party. Most lefty leavers I know like him but don't trust the rest of Labour on Brexit.

If that were true, then why is the 'no deal' Brexit such a controversial option? Shouldn't it just be a no brainer?

It's a hot topic because when they talk about stopping no deal, what they really mean is stopping Brexit.
They don't like to say that though, because they know most people would object.

Because the EU are better *poker* players........ and the remainers have

removed all the aces out of the UK's hand.
