The past three or so years have been rubbish, but the memes have been absolutely top tier. That was amazing.

It's all just a bloody mess and an election is hardly what the country needs to resolve this but egos need to be stroked and people are grasping for chances at power. It's shameful watching all this unfold at Westminster and the media really has fanned the flame to create probably the biggest political divide ever in this country.

The leave vote will no doubt be split between the Conservatives and the Brexit Party while remain will be split across Labour, the Lib Dems and the SNP up here (which will be a fantastic voting choice for Scotland once again if they more or less unanimously elect SNP MPs as it's been shown they can't have any impact in Westminster so it's a wasted vote but trying to tell people that up here is like trying to get blood from stone), with some maybe across Plaid Cymru and the Greens. No one will be an outright winner with enough for a majority that's for sure.

Personally, I can't vote for Labour under Corbyn. He's sat on the bloody fence all this time and positioned himself along the line that only an election will be good enough for him. He's a leaver but doesn't want to outright say it to lose votes and it could come back to bite him in an election as I don't think he'll make the gains he expects (I know it was the EU elections but they showed a heavy move away from Labour). I also see voting SNP a worthwhile vote up here in the grand scheme of things so it would have to be Lib Dems but again, I don't know if they've got what it takes under Jo Swinson.

It's going to be interesting to see what unfolds but really, I just wish I could wake up from the nightmare that is Brexit and have it all gone. A stupid idea that had no bearing whatsoever and has only helped to divide the country and bring the worst out in all corners of the political sphere.

The “Remain Alliance” are going to gift Tories seats and scupper the thing they’re after (Twitter thread)...

going by that particular example, I don't think any coalition would help particularly. if Labour green and LD join togethergot 40.8% of the vote (was my maths right?) they would collectively need to gain about an extra 25% of votes.

 

Tbh right now I really don't know who to vote for, either I dislike the party leader or candidate standing in my area, so I guess it's a tough call on which combination I dislike the least

There is the argument that taking the 2017 election only shows part of the picture because of what has changed since, but yes that particular example does seem rather pointless.

I am in a very safe Labour seat (and in fairness my MP has been strongly anti-Brexit throughout Labour's stupid trajectory), they got 69% (nice) of the vote share last time.

I have voted Green just to bump them a bit in the past and just looking it seems the local candidate from the last election has been replaced by the co-leader of the Greens this time! With apparent support from the Lib Dems but I don't see them winning here.
