This thread is a discussion about the apparently imminent general election which may be in the first few weeks of October, and may be announced as soon as Wednesday.

We may also see attempts in Parliament to vote against the government, or pass legislation against No Deal Brexit.

It could be that the whip will be withdrawn on several Tory MPs who refuse to back the PM. All in all it might be one of the most important and unpredictable weeks in British politics.

What are your thoughts?

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Those are my thoughts!

I suppose whether an election takes place will depend upon the success (or lack thereof) of the anti no deal alliance. If they are able to block a no deal (somehow) then the PM may be forced to call an election to give him the majority needed to ensure a no deal.

I kind of want an election, just because its something to do for a month... ive just finished my last TV show, would be good to have some entertainment.. the coverage would be great, and election nights are always brilliant. Especially given that this could be one of the least predictable in my life time...

For me personally though, I would be very happy if we remained in the EU and we started out on that path.. I will be a bit disapointed but mostly ok if we leave without a deal.. If we leave with a deal, who knows? depends what the deal is... but the one thing I really don't want is another delay or extension. I've waited to long for this, and have my family decision on hold at the moment as the outcome of brexit dictates where we will migrate to next. I wanted to move by january, so knowing if our destination will be the UK or not would be great before then... another 6 month delay would really piss me off.

Let me win or I'll throw the board across the room and break half the pieces. Very mature...

You expect him to win a majority? He doesn't so look for the real motives.

I don't care about Brexit anymore. I'd rather spend my mental energy on other things.

Absolutely... could have been business as usual in Sunderland and Scunthorpe... new Nissan plant and all but no! Brexit Boris and Nazi Nigel spout off and everyone believes their vision of fields of sunny delight. Then they're allowed to rebrand themselves and start all over again... bit like rogue traders.

Unfortunately, Russian roulette describes it somewhat better.

I really hate Brexit but at this point I don’t have the energy to waste my time being angry about it when I know I can’t really do anything about it.

I don't want brexit to happen but being under 18 at the time I didn't really have a say nore did I have much interest in politics and what it means for me. I really hope they can come to some agreement so non of my student benefits or being able to work in the EU when studying abroad. I guess I would have been on the 48% side to remain if given the chance to vote.

Based on the current polls, yes.

I'd like for him to lose spectacularly but I can't see that happening.
