It doesn’t seem that way at the moment. The Tories are ahead in all the polls and the bookies give them around a 75-80% chance of getting the most seats. This can all change of course.
In his constituency.

Conservative.

A vote for any other party is a vote for Corbyn.

Well.. The bookies were sure wrong when May called a snap election lmao. If you come to think of it, she's the reason all this is happening. Had she not got a bit too big for her boots and called a snap election, she'd have had a majority by far and got the deal through.
The bookies are usually correct with politics odds, otherwise they wouldn’t make any money! Times when they are wrong stick in people’s minds, especially if they happened recently.

They’re just saying that there’s a higher probability that the Tories will win but that doesn’t mean they will.

You must be reciding in another country then...
No I reside in the UK and am also old enough to remember when Labour were last in government. Whilst there were economic problems then too, at least schools and the NHS was better funded and young people could afford to get on the property ladder

I wish the different parties would form alliances... If Green, Lib Dem and Labour got together, then we might have a chance.
The Greens and Libs will form an alliance in England because i expect they'll got for outright revoke. Labour will not be able to because there is no way in seven hells Corbyn and co will go further than a neverendum.
(Original post by 04MR17)
Excellent to see so many Lib Dem supporters. :grin:

My local MP (Stephen Twigg) is stepping down so it ultimately will depend on who is available in their place, though there will be a Labour MP here for a long time to come regardless of central party leadership.
Alternate uni or home constituency?

Mr Twigg's constituency is my home. At university we've got Gareth Snell which is a different kettle of fish altogether. But that area is politically weird anyway so I'm not sure what will happen there.

The Conservative candidate there may well end up being a good friend of mine, and I really don't want to vote against him but I honestly cannot bring myself to vote Conservative. Could be a good old spoilt ballot for me.

(1) I do, and I'm not sure why you believe that the global financial crisis is the fault of Labour's domestic policies.
(2) I don't support Labour. I'm pointing out the irony of you supporting the Conservatives, a party fanatically desperate to commit the UK to economic irrelevancy and ruin, whilst claiming that Labour is going to create economic problems. There are many reasons why one might want to vote Conservative but for the economy? You must be joking. The Conservatives replaced any sense of fiscal responsibility with rabid nationalism and anti-intellectualism in 2016.

Corbyn should step down. He's preventing so many people from voting Labour

This is pure fantasy. The only way a Labour leader has won a majority in recent years is by begging at the knees of the Murdoch press, even Milliband was too left wing for our ludicrously right wing propaganda barons. It doesn't matter who's in charge if most every paper backs the tories. Who would even replace Corbyn?

Re-nationalisation of railways and scrapping tuition fees amongst others
Look i can tell by your profile picture you are pro-labour but i don't need 'convincing', i will vote for who i want to and would appreciate if you could respect this.
I’m not actually particularly pro labour though I support Corbyn and will be voting for the Brexit party.

Im not trying to convince you I’m trying to understand why you think nationalising the railways is extremist unless you’re some sort of objectivist , I find it pretty odd to be honest.
