The fact Theresa May isn't turning up for a debate is a joke. And her excuse that she's too busy negotiating about Brexit is probably the worst excuse I've ever heard. She's the one who called for the election now! If she should be focusing on Brexit, she shouldn't have called for the election.

I'm sat here wondering how it has got to the situation where it's between May and Corbyn to choose from. Surely there has to be someone out there that's better? I'm sure this is what a lot of Americans thought when having to choose between Trump and Clinton.

Yes, very true about Hillary and Trump, but make sure you still vote. Nearly half of eligible voters not voting because they didn't like either candidate is how we ended up with a tinted death clown as our leader.

Just as I suspected, it said Netley all the way.

The tone following London Bridge has been quite different than Manchester. Those of us living 'up North' maybe wondering why May didn't "Enough is enough..." a fortnight ago?
Two days to go of a horrible campaign and the polls are looking like this;

Clearly we see why May called it in the 1st place, the gap 'was' huge. Jezzer has had a good campaign and May a bad one but reading some Labour blogs about canvassing outside London and there's some suspicion that in the W. Midlands, NE & NW, Jezzer & Co are not making the gains seen in the capital with core Labour voters.
The Tory seat spread-betting is 356/362 and the majority is 62/74 which I make 359 and 68 as mid-prices.
It may well be that if there is to be a surprise on Thursday, it could be the scale of the Tory win, over 360.5 @5/6 tempts.

No one in their right mind would buy anything from Corbyn. The guy is about as trustworthy as those people who cold call you with offers of PPI windfalls.

Official: Hung Parliament.

Considering the 'quality' of the opposition, May should be hung for allowing that to happen.

The Tories can thank Ruth Davidson north of the border. Had they had May 'leading' them up there they'd not be in a position to call on the DUP to form a Government. Hell of a good night for Jezzer, surely even he didn't expect over 40% of the vote and over 260 seats? May? Has to go, lost her mandate, her majority and many seats in England that should never have been lost. Next election? I fear sooner than we can stomach... ooff! laugh.gif

Labour wins Kensington and Chelsea -the wealthiest Constituency in U.K. Let that sink in!

On the other hand, Kensington apparently went Labour, which for the Tories must be like discovering one of your own lungs voted against you laugh.gif

There is something indecent and contemptuous about May rushing to the palace before even all MPs have been elected. Third recount in Kensington!
