2019 General Election

Postby CJS on Tue 29 Oct 2019, 5:46 pm

I might be jumping the gun, but I doubt it.

Who will you vote for? Why? And anything else you care to discuss to do with this year's (probable) GE...

:snack:

Note - I've included all parties with at least one MP currently.

Lib Dems for me. Several reasons:

Our current Tory child puppet MP is as useless as a chocolate teapot.

The Lib Dems have long campaigned way more fairly, IMHO, for schools and for teachers.

They are not Tory or Labour.

I like orange things.

They don't have an MP so they didn't make my list. If that upsets anyone they can go and be upset somewhere else...







Oh alright,I added it...

One of the weird thing about UKAR politics polls is that, IIRC, by some considerable force of beautiful coincidence, they’ve been pretty bang-on. The Brexit and 2017 exit polls were closer than a lot of punditry was! It will be cool to see if that happens again.

Regardless of how one votes or says they will vote, my only prediction is that this will be a brutal, unforgiving, turgid and deeply unpleasant and inelegant election. I know that they are usually pretty bad, but there’s a really uncomfortably spiteful static in the air around this one.

Ok Chris, but they supported the Cameron government which decimated school budgets and raised student (teacher) debt horrifically.

They stopped it being a lot worse (I think, I can't actually verify that!). They also brought in free school meals for EYFS and KS1.

As the clear revoke/remain party I think the Lib Dems will do well in this election.

The 2010 coalition seems a very long time ago now. The Tories have brought this whole damaging Brexit upon us and so they should be rightly punished at the ballot box.

The Lib Dems cannot go into coalition with the right-wing Johnson/Baker/Rees-Mogg/Francois Leaver Tories.

Will be changes, of course. But, I'd say you're not to far from the truth.

Heart says Lib Dems, but head says Labour.

I'm in a solidly Conservative constituency, and the only vaguely realistic chance of unseating them would be Labour.

Given other polls, I'd take that one with a pinch - or more accurately, a fistfull - of salt.

But then, people will always quote the poll that suits their beliefs.

Don't think I'm going to vote this time which will be a first for me.

If we had PR, then I could see the Lib Dems making some serious progress but, with the present voting system, the additional votes simply dont translate into seats.

as it stands it will be the lib dems.

my main reasons being i think the tories are shifting too far to the right, and labour are shifting too far the other way. for a while now i have been politically homeless, but the lib dims seem to be offering a sensible middle ground with the bonus of wanting to cancel brexit.

mind you where I live its been a safe tory seat in a leave voting area so my vote won't make a difference ultimately.

I would have voted Conservative but given the emotional incontinence demonstrated by the way the Brexit Party has been mistitled in such an uncharitable and intellectually light weight manner, I've voted for them, but I don't think my vote registered, so I'd better do it again! :roll:

Head says Labour, how do you think Corbyn policies on defence and national security would pan out? :question:

"Earlier this year he was criticised for comments he made about people who voted Remain and Labour said his use of language raised concerns as to whether he was a fit and proper person to be a Conservative candidate."

Seems to be a perfect Conservative candidate to me !
