UK General election thread

Recommended Posts

We're voting for a new president today.  Main choices are between Margaret Thatcher (a fascist), and Tony Blair (a communist).  Excitingly, we may have absolutely no idea who is in charge of the country any time soon due to a proliferation of lefties, nationalist parties and tree-hugger parties and one or two more fascist parties leading to something we call a "Hung parliament" (not well-hung I'm afraid JBJF)

 

Personally, I'm going to vote to save the planet.  War me.

 

This thread is for the millions, AND MILLIONS of posters who are fascinated by the UK general election.  I for one will be pulling an all-nighter to watch the votes roll in.  See you on the other side.

Confirmed UKIP voter.  Cheers Mate

:lol:

Lol. I'm the opposite end of the spectrum mate, although I do like a lot of what old Farage says (and despise the rest...)

 

I think you're right though, it could be a right old mess. The second most popular party could end up in power with a party that most of Britan can't even vote for...

On Farage.  He's an intelligent man and some of the stuff he says has a lot of merit but he also says some things that are very dangerous.  The leaders of the other parties really **** up when they had the debate and spent the whole time trying to score cheap points by attempting to discredit him.  The lack of any solid policy thrown up by any of them probably pushed more voters to UKIP.

Agree.  The two main parties are also now so close that people get pushed to the extremes.

I've found the whole campaign pretty negative tbh honest; the only plus point is that I haven't seen the BNP on screen for a single second.

This is currently the betting favourite!  Sturgeon is a dangerous woman...

BNP is still a thing???  lol

 

I don't mind Scotland having their own say on Scottish matters but the fact they'll also want a say on the rest of the UK rustles me.

Voted and treating myself to a cooked breakfast as reward

 

It ain't easy being green

That cooked breakfast was thoroughly well deserved.

I'll take a stroll along the river to the local polling booth and cast my largely meaningless vote later (tories have an 18,500 majority in my neck of the woods so they're somewhat of a shoe in)

no vote is meaningless if you are voting for what you believe in mate, the more people start voting for what represents their political beliefs rather than to stop a party getting in the more chance we have of a better representation

I totally agree with that. For that reason, the greens will get my vote.

I ain't going to have a green MP any time soon mind - not until we change our political system.

the fact that the leaders debate was a 7 party affair this year shows we are making some progress IMHO and long may it continue

 

i live in a Tory town that briefly flirted with Labour.   wonder why Crawley has such a tremendous reputation :P

bless him, the may have to build a stature for him outside LibDem headquarters :P

lol, Lib Dems had 8% in the polls, UKIP 13%.  I think the only thing stopping UKIP getting so much seats is their support is spread throughout the country where as Lib Dem support is focused in bigger clusters in certain areas

I can't complain too much.  Doesn't matter where you go in the world though, there's always some **** unhappy with the government wether it be parish, local, county or national.

I think we're all missing the burning issue: Which station will you watch the results on - BBC, ITV, C4 or Sky?

I'm a Dimbleby (and Sophie Reyworth) man, but C4 has a strong line up.  Tricky....

C4 does have a strong line up but I'll take SOA on netflix if it's all the same...

When do they first normally announce the results when the elections are over for you guys?

when they have counted every vote

 

each polling station puts their tally thru to the main counting offfice and as soon as the final number has been sent they are totalled and then the result announced

We're voting for a new president today.  Main choices are between Margaret Thatcher (a fascist), and Tony Blair (a communist).  Excitingly, we may have absolutely no idea who is in charge of the country any time soon due to a proliferation of lefties, nationalist parties and tree-hugger parties and one or two more fascist parties leading to something we call a "Hung parliament" (not well-hung I'm afraid JBJF)

 

Personally, I'm going to vote to save the planet.  War me.

You guys are voting for a communist?

Yeah, most places do back or shoulder bacon and not so much streaky.  Don't crisp that **** up either

When bacon is the big talking point of election day then you come to realise bacon is indeed the **** and could be a solid running platform for election

You can't expect an athlete like fobar to eat streaky bacon.  He's eating back bacon.  It's a version for non-obese nations.

 

 

Nevertheless, that is clearly bacon and not ham.  Who the heck has ham for breakfast?? Apart from of course those garlic-eating surrender monkeys in France.
