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.
