The Krankies were swingers allegedly.

If you think back, that they were on kids shows and she was dressed up as a young boy and he used to nail her in that outfit.......

Allegedly?

Anyway, it's going to be a thoroughly depressing campaign and result. May was only saying recently that she was opposed to 'playing games' with politics - which is exactly what she has done here. Odd that the Tories have binned the Fixed Term Parliament Act after it had lasted for a single parliament.

Interesting analysis from that Laura bird on the BBC - might be as much quietening some parts of her own party as dealing with the opposition

It would be nice for the electorate to focus on things like the cuts to the NHS, school budgets, social care, the lack of taxation against big businesses (all in it together remember aren't we?) and the lies told by pillocks like Johnson and Gove pre-Brexit, before casting their vote.

But they won't - and this shower will somehow return to power with a vastly increased majority.

Possibly - and whilst I have voted Tory the last few elections a hard Brexit, a further shift right and some of those policies are not necessarily what I am looking for.

Tbh if there was a "Tony Blair" of 2017 out there of whatever political colour that option would suit me.

If there was a Tony Blair equivalent, who told the truth, then I'd agree that would be who to vote for.

But there isn't

Labour - not to be trusted with leadership and economy?

Conservative - not to be trusted with NHS?

Lib Dems - What do they stand for? (Plus my MP Clegg is a proven liar.)

Ukip - Can't agree amongst themselves, therefore not to be trusted?

Green - Two leaders, blizzard, joint PMs? Labour lite?

For me it's voting for the least worst option if at all.

Well I wouldn't vote for Tony Blair with that baggage of course, what I am saying is there is no credible leader of any party out there. I don't particularly want to vote for a Tory party lurching further to the right, but even less voting for a Labour party lurching to the Left

Presumably the centre left party will be born out of the results of this election.

If it is the end of Corbyn then the way Labour elects Leaders will mean another left winger ( not Adam Reach) and a split of the party.

Trouble is that ground brings the odious Tim Farron into play and I can't imagine anybody wanting to be involved with him

Fuck knows how this will pan out. Most fascinating General Election I can remember, that's for sure.

As Bells rightly says, I hope Brexit doesn't dominate, rather the destruction of this country by the Tories.

I'm not sure the motivation of people fearing the SNP being in a coalition with Labour. If the Scots see a future of never-ending Tory rule, they're more likely to leave than if they have some actual power and real say over their affairs within the U.K.

I think she'll obliterate Labour into a paralysed entity (which will be their own fault for appointing that commie whack job Corbyn)

Much as I dislike them, this is the LibDem luvvies big chance to quite quickly restabilise their party and take an unexpected chance to be serious again and gain some ground by courting the traditional Labour voters who would rather die than vote Tory (even if they personally are flourishing under a Tory government!) but also know they cannot vote for this clown (so, pretty much the majority of them).

Scotland will be unchanged sadly, barring a few gains for Tory & Lib Dem.

Elsewhere, massive decimation for Labour except in their staunch heartlands. Lib Dem gains in many others (providing their muppet leader takes this opportunity).

Kind regards

Remind me who the majority of the members voted for in the leadership election?
