Hard Brexit Lunatic Tories may vote Brexit Party.

Remain Tories may vote LibDem or even Labour.

Centerist Labour may vote LibDem.

Brexit Labour may vote Tory.

SNP will clean up in Scotland.

Northern Ireland will stay as it is because the sectarian votes never, ever change.

Wales will remain irrelevant.

 

Absolutely anything could happen in this one.

 

Probably a hung parliament and a confidence and supply deal, if the arithmetic works.

Good evaluation chief.  Actually think Brexit Labour could go Brexit Party or Tory.  Only thing that’s certain is that Lib Dem and Brexit Party will do well and Labour will get pummelled.  There’s no way that the electorate will entertain the idea of a PM trying to renegotiate a deal even if the carrot is a 2nd referendum.  People’s Vote only has mileage if it’s the existing deal that is put to the people.  


Lib Dem stance is a strong one - vote for us if you want the whole thing revoked, with the plan B bring to support a People’s Vote.  That’s where my vote’s going.

A hate filled Christmas beckons.

No further forward or backward and the turkey ruined.

Maybe we can squeeze a border poll and indy ref 2 in and have Scots and N Irish fighting amongst themselves as well while we're at it.

Poor baby Jesus what a shite birthday this year.

Can’t see SNP losing seats.  Brexit Party will decide whether the Tories have a majority or not.

Great news for me.  It all happens in daytime here and although I have been exiled here for many years I still take a real interest.

 

Hope Ian Murray puts Unite in their place and comes in with a stunning majority.  That's because ice met him and he is a top bloke and a top Jambo.

A hung parliament with the Tories needing a deal with the Brexit Party to claim a majority. 

A country totally and utterly ****ed.

Merry Christmas!

i have a feeling that will happen with labour taking a hammering especially in areas that voted to leave, unless their candidate goes against their party (that assumes they put a referendum or something similar in their manifesto)

DUP and Ulster Unionists pact not to compete has broken down. Due to DUP pro Brexit stance. 

 

Opens door to at least one DUP seat being lost to Sinn Fein.

Find it hard to find any Brexit Party MPs.

 

We don't have proportional representation.

Yep, does great work for the constituency and its constituents! His support in a dealing I had with the Foreign Office probably changed my life forever (for the better, that is!).

That mark whittet fella looks like a 1970’s German prom star . 
 

Hopefully the country will look at other policies rather than just Brexit given it’s a general election .

Not because he is the most compelling but because everyone else is that much less compelling.

I hope this General Election result takes the wind out of the Nationalists' sails. 

The nationalists have been taking the people of Scotland for granted, and they have got too comfortable doing so.

 

A lot of voters in Scotland don't care for them and their shtick.

This is already doing the rounds by pro unionist's, on how to tactically vote out the SNP.

 

A few very close calls from the last GE

 

It's going to be a very bitter run up to Christmas.

We don't have proportional representation. 

Possibly but unlike UKIP, I can see a number of Leave voters coalescing around the Brexit Party in certain seats,  especially any where the Tory MP is seen as a remainer.

This election is going to see a lot of voters focus on what local candidate is best placed to deliver a Remain or Leave vote, rather than necessarily vote for their traditional party.

 

Which is why in my view, a general election is a terrible way to resolve Brexit. 

A referendum and then a general election would be the best way in my view but won't happen as the polls suggest Leave will lose and that isn't good for those backing Johnson and Farage.
