Re: June 8th General Election

Farron is an utter disgrace. He claimed he didn't have any problem answering the question 'is homosexuality a sin?' then proved the opposite to be true by refusing to answer it.

Re: June 8th General Election

Yesterday I had to turn the radio off after some bremoaner muppet said this vote would be used to stop Brexit.

I'd like to know why people were having a go TM for calling a general election despite her saying when she took office.

But then chose to ignore why she said she was calling for one.

Re: June 8th General Election

Think Mrs May has been taking tips from a certain U.S President on certain public campaigns just now, crowd of people behind her, placards. All we need now is a slogan.....

SASL ?

Strong And Stable Leadership, is what I am seeing on those placards just now.

The archtraitor Blair crawles out of the woodwork:

Former Labour leader Tony Blair has urged voters to back candidates from any party which opposes Brexit amid speculation that he will campaign with the Liberal Demcrats at the election.

I think a lot of people in Scotland are feeling that way. There are a few seats the Tories should definitely be targeting in Scotland, though they shouldn't take their eye off Dumfriesshire because the other parties aren't above game playing and they would all love to see David Mundell unseated.

However in your case Nash I'd say a Tory vote in Glasgow is probably a waste ... if you can't get a Tory in, next best thing is to get a SNat out. Find out who came second to the SNP in your seat in 2015, and vote for them.

Well, Labour will attempt to make the election all about that, but they will be spouting a false promise. The Conservatives are spending far more money on the NHS than Labour would have done, and they are trying to make it more efficient as well.

People in hospital were drinking out of vases when Labour were last in charge, remember? So much for the party of the NHS. Aneurin Bevan must have been turning in his grave!

Labour may be the party we should thank for giving us the NHS, but it is the Tories we have to thank for keeping it going in the current century.

Yep, I seem to recall the appalling Mid Staffs debacle in which hundreds of patients died unnecessarily happened on the so called party of the NHS's watch. For a party which claims to be opposed to privatising stuff, they also signed a hell of a lot of vastly expensive NHS (and other) PRIVATE FINANCE INITIATIVE contracts during their term of office but that's just what you'd expect from the party of lies, spin and hypocrisy.

Pfft. That's not going to be a problem for the Tories. Momentum will end up shouting at anyone conflicted over voting Labour that they're Blairite neoliberal scum who'll be deselected from the electorate.

Re: June 8th General Election

I'd rather vote for the bnp then labour and there will be snowball fights in hell before I'd vote for them it's a conservative vote for me not only because of brexit but because there isn't a single other party capable of forming a government. Lib dems are a joke and nothing they stand for withstands a sniff of power but even if i thought they could form a barely decent government farron stops any consideration the guy is slimy as hell and just comes off as untrustworthy to me.

She said it as little as four weeks ago that she wasn't calling an election. This is clearly a u-turn. Her reasoning doesn't make much sense since it was true a month ago that there are people in Parliament who aren't behind Brexit but none the less it passed Parliament easily. The handful of Liberal Democrats and 50 SNP seats aren't a big threat to Brexit and those are the parties least likely to lose seats.
