    I don't find it a threat at all [well except to ones' sanity]

    Labour and Tory vote collapsed here yesterday. Greens and Lib Dems the big winners. I did a "roly"; went to the polling station but couldn't decide who was the least biggest sh*t so didn't vote.

    Just go there and write “brexit traitors” across the ballot paper.

    The tories hammering was no great surprise but Labour HQ must be concerned about the backlash in the northern areas. They’ll be thinking twice about wanting a general election.

    I would have thought that the success of the Lib Dems might give Labour more thought about throwing their weight behind a 2nd referendum rather than the opposite. That seems to be where the major swing was.

    No not really, if it was about the second referendum then you would expect the Lib Dems to have done better in the pro remain areas but they didn’t, their new support seemed to be pretty even across all areas. It’s really a protest vote scenario as the number of independents and greens that picked up votes demonstrated

    In a general election folks won’t vote Lib Dem nor Green because they are wasted votes, makes some voters feel happier but of no significance in the wider picture.

    Labour need to heed what happened in Hartlepool, Wirral and Bolsover areas that should be winnable by a duck with a red rosette, but they performed badly. A very clear message that voters think Labour isn’t helping to deliver Brexit

    If we have EU elections then this kick in the balls for Labour ( and the tories) will be much more painful.

    Apparently for it to be counted as a "spoiled ballot" you have to write "none" across all the names and a line through all the boxes.

    And 3 weeks on May is now offering the possibility of a 2nd referendum [by way of a bribe]
    Can you believe the duplicity of this woman who surely will go down as the worst PM in British history

    Both Labour and the Tories will get their comeuppance tomorrow when the Brexit Party has landslide victories all over the country except in the "London bubble" of course.

    And now Andrea Leadsom resigns from Gov't
    Probably wants to spend more time at the hunt

    More than half the country will not vote for the Brexit Party. But, the remain vote will be split.

    Do you think that half the country will vote? I think that it was 37% the last time.

    There is a guy here who' standing who is campaigning for French values and then has Frexit written in his propaganda which kinda makes a mockery of what he's after. Surely he should be looking for Frortie.

    Frog, might be bigger turnout than normal here with protest voters. I was first in the PS as usual; list as long as your arm.

    I watched the news yesterday where it was saying that British citizens living in France wouldn't be able to vote because the ballot papers had been despatched by a company who had diverted their papers via the Netherlands causing a delay. It did make me wonder why they hadn't registered to vote int country that they live in.

    Yes, I listened to a woman in France with that problem but don't know the ins and outs of it. Saw as well this morning that the company which bought British Steel for £1 (went bust yesterday) had been taking loads of money out disguised as management fees so unlike dividends they don't pay Corporation Tax. Nothing ever changes.

    I didnt phrased that very well. I didnt mean half the country would turn out. I meant more than half the people in the UK population support remain.

    Doubt it.

    Anyway when it counted it was only 48%.
