    Can't believe how many brexiters genuinely believed the pencil MI5 story.

    Considering I've observed election vote counts before, I find it hilarious that there are people who think there is any opportunity for their vote to be rubbed out and changed.

    Umm youd be surprised at the number of remain voters believing it. You're too partisan for your own good

    My mate living there managed just fine, for freedom!

    I managed to vote fine, even stayed out in it for about fifteen minutes, admittedly semi-protected from the rain for most of it under those things some shops have, the little outcrops. Was the worse rain I've experienced, including festival weather.

    Also heard stories, although slightly unrelated, of people at waterloo and other London stations stuck unable to vote due to train tracks flooding

    I don't understand if they think people will be there furiously rubbing pencil marks off why they wouldn't just bin the ballots and replace them with remain ones.

    Only seen Brexiters claiming it because apparently MI5 will change their vote.

    That's on top of the 28% of Brexiters who think the vote is rigged.

    I've not seen a single remain voter mention it who wasn't joking about it. Not saying there aren't many who are believing it but the overwhelming view seems to be both on social media and in the media that it is a brexit thing with the remain camp having a laugh about it

    Massive massive travel problems in London. 8 underground lines have problems, major stations also have problems due to flooding, as well as for my London station didn't have flood problems, but had signal problems severely reducing trains leaving, now having many trains delayed till 2300.

    Given Powys is apparently a key marginal local authority (I thought it was more firmly remain according to the pollsters, but my local inkling was always that it would be more leave-ish) I should inform you that the weather's been beautiful here today. I haven't even needed to put on a jumper.

    So now you believe we're leaving with not a single vote to remain? Oh, no, you're being partisan again and assuming.

    Oh dear, someone who has never used trains or other public transport so is unaware of the 24 hour clock. Probably still measures things in feet and inches, weight in pounds and the price of things in groats and guineas.
