2017 British General Election Thread

501 posts in this topic

Use this thread to discuss the 2017 General Election.

--------------------

For the first time, I'm considering non-participation. This election was called to bolster Teresa May's position as PM. The electorate feeling hasn't changed broadly and while I used to believe on voting on principal, I'm very happy with my local MP and it is likely she will be re-elected. Abstaining from the polls might make a greater point than attending.

I miss the days before social media, where (in general terms) folks had a view and kept it to themselves. A general election will ignite passion for party politics (which is no bad thing) but at a time of division, and for progress to be made, we as a country need to work on what unites us. 

While I'm personally not chuffed with the current state of affairs, extending the time the Conservative government to have power so they can take more responsibility for Brexit, is a reasonable idea. A business-focussed approach might work better economically. 

I wrote my dissertation on propaganda used in the 2010 GE, and in 2015 I enjoyed comparing the two. Having just six weeks for every party to campaign is going to be a whirlwind, and I'm excited to see what they come up with. Of course, nothing can beat Ed Miliband's pledges carved into rock! :P

@alfierose The Lib Dems do seem to be growing rapidly. There's something going on there.

Their was reports a few weeks ago that polling suggested Tories could lose almost 30 seats to Lib Dems at the next election that the Lib Dems used to hold.

Jeremy likes ebony and bbw thus conveniently amalgamating two pornhub categories into one.

I suppose because they are the only party that will appeal to a hardcore Remain contingent. Corbyn was never really Remain despite his weak claims for it.

My local MP is a Tory, he gets elected because he's a decent local bloke who does a lot for the area, he votes against his party quite a lot so will never make it past the back bench! I don't really have a problem voting for him but of course in a GE that has wider repercussions.

To be honest I don't want to see a change in leadership right now, whatever anyone thinks of May or the Tories that seems like a disastrous move for the exit negotiations, I really don't think Corbyn is up to the job. Neither do I want a massive Tory majority for the next however many years and Lib Dems I'm sure will gain seats but I think they will be Labour seats more than Conservative.

Truthfully we are kind of fucked. :facepalm:

Interesting, I was just surmising they would take more Labour seats.

Having said that I place no faith in polling anymore. :lol:

This country has been going downhill since we repealed the Corn Laws. Bring back fox hunting and smoking in pubs. Bring back the Yorkshire Ridings, Middlesex and Westmoreland. Return to us our blue passports and not those French maroon buggers. Abolish Twenty20. Bring back shillings and thre' penney bits, and stand to attention during the national anthem.

Wouldn't worry about the pigs head. Diane Abbot will probably have eaten it by tomorrow.

Seriously, is there any Macron like candidate in the UK? Someone who can unite Remain voters left and right, an outsider not the Lib. Democrats

She looks disconcertingly like how I imagine Myra Hindley looked like just before she bought the farm.
