A few advisements for a peaceful cohexistence:
  1. Remember to always respect other users, the board and the moderators.
  2. Please resolve any eventual personal quarrel (as in "opinion wars" lead through a barrage of posts that don’t concern the forum) via private electronic mail correspondence with the concerned party.
  3. Try to add a “In my opinion…”, “I (don’t) think/believe…” or “It should be…” to your posts when you deem it appropriate, it can prevent many unnecessary misunderstandings.

Default UK General Election

8th June: General Election here in the UK.

Politics never stops does it! Expect to see Labour wiped out and May and the Conservatives get an increased majority. Scotland will be really interesting to watch as well, whether the SNP do better or worse than last time and the implications for independence.

Shrewd move by Theresa May. I reckon Labour's seats could be cut to somewhere between 150-200. The biggest winners apart from the Conservatives will be the Liberal Democrats- I think they'll significantly increase their share of the votes and pick up an extra dozen or so seats (including Vince Cable who will stand near to me in Twickenham again). Conservatives might take a couple of extra seats in Scotland but I'd expect SNP to keep most of their huge majority. Scotland will be interesting though.
In general I think a major wipe out would be quite good in a sense for Labour- they need an excuse and an opportunity to get rid of Corbyn. Probably better to get it over and done with now rather than limping along for another few years. On average bookies are offering odds of 1/14 for a Conservative win and one bookie is even going as far as 1/20. Brexit, Trump... no chance of an upset with this one, surely.

​I don't think anyone can be certain of anything after what happened last year. I personally think the current Brexit team is a total disaster so I'm praying for some kind of change

Thanks to the moderation team for reinstating these threads. I hope it remains reasonably peaceful in here.

Don't forget the President from Arkansas (and his enabler),
then Al Franken Senator for Minnesota. Alabama has hardly
got the market cornered on such - just sayin'.

Bad time to be a man says Barry.

How about a Kennedy who gets drunk and leaves a woman drowning in a vehicle or a president who gets blow jobs from interns and rapes women.

Yeah. That's just as bad as advocating violence against women. What's your point?

My point is they moralistic Democrats. Hollywood and Democrats always sit in judgement of everybody but they are the biggest pervs.

Oh I'm not saying it knows party or even gender lines. Roy Moore was the first example that popped into my head. It does seem to be far more prevalent in those with a penis though. Let's face it. They've had and still have the advantage.
Another big one bit the dust this morning, Matt Lauer. I'd imagine some people's balls are starting to shrivel at this point so to speak.
