General Election - 8 June 2017

Recommended Posts

Let's hope the tories also manage to keep Sinn Fein happy while there sucking up to DUP else its back to hell with help from their new found friends who supposedly follow another great (non violent) religion!

this certainly looks like the makings of a new action packed film "gone south 2017"

Do you think women should be imprisoned for having an abortion @Barrykearley? I bet you don't cos you're a big kind softy, the DUP has supported an abortion ban which would mean women who have an abortion would be put in prison. That sort of shit needs to be chucked out the window right away, May needs to know that.

No mate I most certainly do not. 

I like your thinking - it also means we chuck out the idea of normalisation of Muslim and Saudi opinions in the uk.

hala meat is also an utter disgrace - yet we Bitch about fox hunting....... a few foxes every now and again versus hundreds/thousands of chickens and sheep a day.......

Wholeheartedly agree, although i don't think many muslims support oppression of women, that's just a few extreme idiots, much like the extreme catholic or christian idiots committing violent crimes from time to time. The Saudis are in a world of their own and should be cut off and sanctioned!  And i've no beef if someone's voted Tory or Labour or whoever, i just can't get behind a government that wants to party up with the DUP.

Clearly my maths is deficient, because when I add up 262+35+12+1 I get 310. I mean, that's obviously in correct because Jez won a majority of 650 seats, and is definitely more than 318. I blame my education. An alliance with the DUP is essential on that basis.

I can't see the issue with a minority government frankly. In the EU it's far more commonplace to have a hung parliament.

id like to see the whole lot of them ousted. A proper revolution and some real representation for the working man. I feel marginalised and a minority in my own country frankly

can you help then @franjipane? All I've been hearing today is that Jez has won a great victory, will be presenting his queens speech and is expecting to form a government. Admittedly I've been quaffing champagne with Polly and Owen this afternoon.

A minority government could be just what we need, MPs actually having to put a proper case forward for issues and none of this bloody childlike filibustering. I'm fine with it too, i just don't want it to be with the DUP!

I agree - the dup link is much the same as JC and his terrorist sympathising rose tinted spectacle views.

they should not have done the deal. JC would not have been able to form a government anyway especially with the Scottish witch being smacked back into her box

@Gashead1105 not sure who Owen or Polly are, but in case you missed the results due to champagne overdose, May has won. But it was disastrous for the Tories and a great comeback for Labour. Anyone who says it was a victory for labour is obviously not talking about the number of seats. At the same time, anyone who doesn't recognise that the Tories are utterly screwed has their head in the sand.  Any other questions?

The labour result was good to be fair. But let's not loose sight of how bad the Tory campaign was. It was disgusting, ridiculous and frankly contemptuous. 

Not exactly difficult for a party offering hope and free unicorns to make an electoral surge when compared with a house stealing, kids diner stealing, tax dodging, fox murdering proposal

Agreed!

By the way, on the whole JC IRA thing can we put that to rest please, he was not and never has been a sympathiser in the same way the DUP have.

He said: “I condemn all the bombing by both the loyalists and the IRA.”

http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/media/2017/05/no-jeremy-corbyn-did-not-refuse-condemn-ira-please-stop-saying-he-did

Once and for all folks, JC is not a sympathiser no matter what tabloid you read it in. they're making shit up.

JC is a career politician. Drop out rebel whom relished in the Maggie days of rebellion. Yes he has now grown up a bit - and he can string along a concept which almost sounds ok. But let's not get too excited - on paper communism is a brilliant system as is socialism - the reality is somewhat different.

he did without doubt back in the day have sympathies for the IRA and it's cause. Please remember one mans freedom fighter is another mans terrorist

Ok so show me where that was the case. A video or something verifiable would be good rather than  something a tabloid paper has written.

Mate those photos and videos are long buried - the BBC wouldn't even have Martin mcguiness on tv for years and had a filming ban on him. Should you really wish to verify - then you should be able to find ex service personnel whom would vouch for his whereabouts at IRA funerals - and that's not made up by the papers

I'm not going to ask who goes for who, because that will just turn into a bunfight to end all bunfights.

I hope it all works out for you in the UK and that it doesn't make a mess of things.

I haven't followed it closely enough to know who stands for what.

It really won't matter...... the establishment is being puppeteered and Brexit will be derailed or delayed as long as possible.

whoever we have in charge - it's gonna be a really messy couple of years

Aye it's going to be messy, I don't think it had to be but too many egos in play. We're all gonna suffer a bit for it. Hopefully with as much positivity as the JC campaign

@franjipane you ain't been reading my posts fully. I am not a "toryboy" at heart, I actually think about who I vote for and why, rather than just follow what I, my family, friends, have always done. But then you read what you want.  The DUP or the SNP. Hmmm, tough choice. Wouldn't want either to be honest but do think if we want the best Brexit deal then the Tories will do better than labour. 

I've said before I thought Corbyn ran a good campaign, but then, it was a very "popular" give away campaign in general. And even as you and many others have said, the Tory campaign was terrible and really bad and here's the big thing. CORBYN STILL LOST!  OK, he did not win. Can we just get that straight please. The awful, crap and shit campaign of May still gave her the most seats by what was it, 59 in the end?

Hasn't worked well in Scotland. Go and do some reading up on how it is has fooked things up here. Do think it is a bit rich JC telling anyone to resign when he refused to how many times when asked?  Ho hum, I guess he was smiling when he said No so it was all OK then.

I read your posts. And your new post is mostly ranting. You haven't answered my question about the dup.

And what will the Tories do for you for brexit? No deal sounding good for you?

Im hoping this is great for a hard Brexit in ways people didnt realise. As article 50 has been triggered negotiations have to be completed in 2 years?

The chance of a minority gov getting any agreement is as likely as the 28 member states of the EU agreeing a trade deal.

So thats no deal! IMO better even than a hard Brexit!
