I still can't get over how people at this later stage are still saying "I like what Labour stand for but dislike Corbyn, I'll go vote Tory" just...what?

How do retards like you even get a vote?



Vote how you want to everyone. Don't listen to cunts like the example above.

Personally. I've always been "middle of the road". Not Labour, Not Tory, Not Lib Dem.

In the past I would have probably voted Labour or Libs, Not with the people in charge though.

They are both fucking useless.


For the first time in my life I'm voting Conservative.



And this is from someone who got fucked over by Maggie Thatcher, and hated "The Tories".

Final poll results for Tory Leads

ICM: 12+
ComRes: 10+
Panelbase: 8+
Opinium: 7+
Yougov: 7+
Kantar 5+
Survation: 1+

I'm expecting ICM/ComRes to be closest.

Though for a fun fact, Survation are one of the few polling companies to have gotten the 2015 ones correct. They didn't publish their results at the time because they were so far off everyone elses.

Anyone get any good slabbering in at the campaigners of a party they hate outside the polling station? I couldn't resist myself.

"Hi, can I give you a leaflet for Alex Easton (DUP)?"

"No thanks, I've plenty of toilet paper in the house already."

Did have one about a week ago, Tory and Green campaigners were handing out flyers in the middle of the village where I live, the Tory one snuck up on me and gave me one (I wasn't really watching what I was doing so forgot to give him a wide berth) and told me to "do the right thing". I took it and put it in the recycling bin and went over to the Green campaigner and took one of theirs to rub it in :P

Next election I'm going to come up with a whole list of put downs and then tour all the polling stations in town recording them all.

Possible hung parliament, some sources are saying, based on exit poll.

It's looking like it. Tbh that was what I expected if the Conservatives didn't win, I held out very little hope for a Labour majority.
