    Who do people see winning? I see it as some sort of hung parliament where they’re all going to say we can’t do it as blah blah blah but we really want to, oh yes, but we can’t .

    A draw is the best result.

    Where did it say that? All parties agreed the result would be binding and they would accept the result. Of course that was when they thought it would go the way wanted. Every house got a leaflet advising a remain vote, saying leave would mean coming out of the customs union and an end to freedom of movement. It appears Remainers don’t digest information very well.

    I will be very surprised if there is a clear cut winner.

    You have used a phrase that, probably through ignorance, is deemed by some as Antisemitism. The IHRA advise against using it & prefer the more modern presentation.

    I don’t think you’re racist but not recognising DA hate & abuse is not motivated & carried out by racists is not a good look.

    the most interesting thing will be if Labour get in supported by the SNP - if part of the deal is to allow a Scottish Independent referendum and they vote to leave the UK then Labour will lose their coalition partner and will probably give the Tories a majority - at least that's how things seem to me

    My daughter is ten months old and she could type out a better summary of this thread than that load of drivel.

    Oooh, the grown ups. Get a ****ing grip. I'm not bitter or twisted about how much I earn, I'm pissed off that companies don't pay as much as they should when they take billions out of the system. Why wouldn't that piss you off when we have people using foodbanks, an overworked NHS and people struggling to stay alive? What kind of human being doesn't feel compassion for those people, doesn't want to help them or, perhaps worse, doesn't care at all? My vote isn't to improve my life, it's to improve the lives of those people.

    All that dross about Corbyn has been debunked a billion times over. He never supported the IRA, he never laid a wreath in support of terrorists (that story has already been shown to be a fabrication, he was there for totally different reasons) and he never had to resort to the ****ty, underhanded tactics that his Tory counterparts have utilised.

    As has already been said, BJ doesn't even care about his own kids, why the hell do you think he cares about you? What sort of maniac looks at the state of the country, as it is now, and thinks "yeah, four more years of this, please"? When you see a trend occurring, such as an increase in food bank usage,you try to buck it, not grease the slope to let it slide quicker. We've already fallen for the con that is Brexit, so as a nation we're already in the ****ing red in terms of ridiculous decisions, but voting that bunch of ****ers in again would take the biscuit and smash it with an enormous horse cock.

    Stop listening to Facebook, stop looking at memes and stop hanging around in echo chambers, where bilge like you just posted gets regurgitated and strengthens this desperate belief that the Tories are what's best for the country forever and always.

    You want to be on the same side as Tommy Robinson, Nigel Farage, Katie Hopkins, Danny Tommo, Piers Morgan and other people generally considered to be the worst of us, fine. But I think I'll throw my lot in with the likes of Stephen Fry, Rowan Atkinson, David Attenborough, JK Rowling, Noam Chomsky, and Steve Coogan. You know, people who aren't enormous ****s.

    I think it’ll be a lot closer than the polls suggest. I think some high profiles will lose their seats. I think young voters will have a big say in the result. I think at least two Parties will be looking for new Leaders after Christmas.

    What phrase is that? I have always condemned anti semites and holocaust deniers. In fact had quite heated arguments about their views regarding that on CI.

    That one. Just one word nowadays. Some find your spelling highly offensive.

    I got the memo.

    Your daughter could come up with better than that load of tosh. Apart from Attenborough many consider some of those you list as ****s,

    Of course they would. Except, objectively speaking, they aren't (with the exception of Gervais and Coogan who are, but in a nice way). I don't think you'd ever get JK Rowling knocking on your door at 3am, coked off her face and threatening your life.

    You ever heard the phrase, "no u", by the way? It's an Internet term. Just curious.

    Some people are indeed very sad. Pronouncing Epstein as Epschteine could be considered antiSemitic. (Had to redo that as it autocorrected to anti Semitic). Especially as they wouldn't have pronounced the name of the Beatles manager that way,

    most of that is arse wipe - if you want to be on the same side as Bernie Grant when he said the police got a bloody good hiding when PC Blakelock was murdered then fine

    I find Stephen Fry witty and amusing but others,including some on here, are less than complimentary about him.
    Coogan is by some accounts a bit of a twat.

    Which no u are you referring to? There are differing ones.
