    O/T:- Votes, scores and first past the post predictions 12.12.2019

    650 in play, 326 needed for outright majority.

    Conservative: 311 (+13)
    Labour: 218 (-26)
    SNP: 33 (-2)
    Lib Dems: 28 (+8)
    DUP: 10 (no change)
    Greens: 2 (+1)
    Speaker: 1 (no change)
    Others: 47

    Close but no cigar for Bojo and the blues. Red flag flying half mast. Swinsonís Lib Demís declare victory after massive gains (lol). Seat not contested in Chorley.

    Country remains in a state of flux with another minority government.

    A very interesting prediction topic, if like me you enjoy the OT political posts on here. I can only see two possibilities, we either get a Tory majority or a hung parliament. Sadly I think a lot depends on alliances on this one. If the Tories and the Brexit party can reach some sort of agreement I think a Tory majority is very likely, but Nigel and Boris have such enormous egos it might not happen. At the moment I think the other parties might be a bit cleverer, resulting in a hung parliament which isn't good, but nowhere near as bad as the likes of obnoxious turds like Johnson, Gove and Rees-Mogg being given a mandate. Much depends now on which party does the least self-harm.

    Understandable. I've never shown any interest in the Australian elections.

    Thank goodness we have Corbyn, McDonnell and Abbott waiting for a mandate.

    Ahh, the politics of a simpleton. Lets's sit back and meekly accept proven bad, because the alternative is probably bad.

    I hope your shipmates had more balls than you.

    Good topic but a bit early! Even if the Tories have scored 5 own goals in the first 5 minutes of campaigning.

    Reserving the right to amend but Iíll say

    Tories 290
    Labour 230
    Libs 50
    The rest

    Yeah I did wonder if I was a bit previous but then thought it would be a good thread to track and change predictions as party campaigns start to gather momentum and the opinion polls start to kick in.

    Already trying to think of an algorithm that predicts the outcome based on opinion polls. I’ll see what I can do

    I'd be interested to hear the answer to that, because after a great deal of thought I can only think of one plus point for Boris Johnson.

    He isn't Michael Gove.
