Quote from: DavidL on October 30, 2019, 07:58:46 amApparently, confusion and chaos within the Labour whipping operation may have caused some Labour MPs to vote for the election by mistake! I really hope that's the case
Quote from: The Letter R on October 30, 2019, 09:13:43 amWell the vote was won by a massive majority so there must have been a hell of a lot of confusion or Diane Abbott was directing it......

Quote from: Richard_2112 on October 30, 2019, 21:26:34 pmI think this is going to be one of the nastiest general elections we will ever see, and the idea that it will heal the nation is a ludicrous fantasy.Boris and Swinson will play this as a one issue election, forgetting of course that a general election is about all issues facing the nation, not just Brexit. The SNP will play heavily on remain, but also Scottish independence and Labour will play heavily to public services and working conditions. It'll be interesting to see what, if any, the Brexit party will make to the overall result. The only way of predicting that one will be if there is any whiff of an election pact with the Tories.I'm a natural socialist, I believe pooling your resources so everyone can benefit makes for a better society so will be going into this voting Labour, but I'm not too confident they can get a majority backing from the country cause after four years the (and I think they're pretty baseless) smears against Corbyn are bound to have had an impact.Ultimately I'm not looking at this purely because of Brexit. I think that whole situation is frankly laughable because up until 5 years ago the EU just wasn't an issue for the vast majority of this country, it was living standards directly affected by decisions made by UK governments, and all I know is for my entire adult life I have seen nothing but a shit show of right wing capitalism that has ruined the very soul of this once great country and I think my generation needs a bit of hope.

Quote from: Richard_2112 on October 30, 2019, 22:29:10 pmWhere on earth did I say that!?This is going to be nasty on all sides.
Quote from: DavidL on October 30, 2019, 23:12:54 pmYou suggested that Labour would avoid the über-nasty and divisive issue of Brexit but the other parties would concentrate on it (Labour concentrating on the far more worthy ( ) issue of public services and worker's rights').Unintentional subtext, perhaps.But you are right, it will be nasty on all sides. Nothing nastier than a left-wing 'ultra' (advocating the lynching of political opponents etc.)
Quote from: Richard_2112 on October 31, 2019, 00:42:51 amLabour's fingers in their ears about Brexit at the 2017 election was a massive shot in the foot as far as I'm concerned, their one issue in that election was the NHS which I think cost them a little on wider appeal, but I would bet the mast they nail their colours to this time will be working rights.
Quote from: Richard_2112 on October 31, 2019, 00:42:51 amAs for point two; sticks and stones may break my bones but actually murdering someone for their political beliefs in the UK within the last decade is solely in the domain of the hard right, who are still the fastest growing terrorist threat to the UK. More so than the lefty liberal snowflakes...
