Well Tories are down to a 3 point lead now.

GE17: Labour are now just 3 POINTS BEHIND the Tories in the latest YouGov analysis | EvolvePolitics.com

I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm not exactly a fan of Corbyn, though I do have respect for some of his positions and history of taking a moral stance on issues. But, I see him as far less destructive than May & the Tories.

Only thing that bothers me is that the tories always seem to do worse in the polls than the actual elections, tory voters are all shy when the pollsters come around.

Possibly so, but if the two of us are left clinging to the last rock above sea level after climate change melts the ice caps, I'm still not talking to you.

I can hold a grudge better than anyone.

im not that happy with either party though, public sector pay rises have been capped at 1% for at least the last six years while inflation is set to hit 3% this year, so year on year the douchenozzels in parliament make us worse off

The more I learn about Corbyn the more I like him. I'll absolutely be voting for him anyway, obviously, but it was something of a protest vote or a "not Tory" vote. Now I'm struggling to remember why I didn't like him. I think it might have been his weak stance on staying in the EU.

Sadly Corbyn's vision of brexit it pretty much as disastrous as May's. However, in internal politics and foreign policy he is vastly superior.

I think he has come across very well the last couple of weeks. The problem Is, when people go the polls, they will go...Diane Abbott, oh shit.

I think it depends how many young people vote.

Pretty sure that was 'upper class twit of the year' also know as Boris 'Bojo the clown' Johnson, also known as 'the Tory party' and they are now down to a 1 point lead over labour. That's 19 points down from their unassailable this will be a landslide lead.

Here is a song about the UK election I found on Reddit:

Machiavellian Rhapsody (sung to the tune of Bohemian Rhapsody)

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? No Tory landslide? An escape from austerity?
Polling implies, we've looked through their lies, to see...
If I’m still poor boys, they’ll have it in for me.
Choking on radio
Do Lib Dems / hate homos?
Gay sex ain’t a sin though, doesn’t really matter to Tim…or May
Mummy - just killed a lead
Tried to to get the housing spread
When the pensioners were dead
Mummy - polls had just begun
But now she's gone and Goved it all away
Dimble! OoOoh, (on good form Tim still blows)
Didn't mean to make you cry
If May's not on TV this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters...
Too late! That time has come.
Slashed police if there's a crime, face is gurning all the time!
Goodbye, everyTory - she's got to go!
Gotta leave you all, thereby, to face The Youts
Mummeh - oOoO - I don't want to die
I sometimes wish we'd never even had the gallllll
I see a little hippy ghetto of a man
Grimey King? Gardening? Can he make that based jam doh?
Yougov polls are tight tings, very, very fright tings, ye

Man - i - festo o o o o o
I'm just a pob Gove, nobody loves me
He's just a pob Gove, wipes his sweat clammily!

General election 2017: Diane Abbott 'takes indefinite break from campaign' - BBC News

It's easy to be sceptical about this, but her pretty dire performance over the last few weeks, culminating in Monday's car-crash interview on Sky, takes on a rather different light if she's been struggling with an illness.


While I don't much like her, I hope she's soon recovered.

Very interesting being in the U,S. ,listening to Brits on Radio 5 live on (web).
Wondering if this will mean a compromise "softer" brexit or whether a working unofficial Tory / Unionist "coalition" will still push through a hard Brexit.

At this rate, it's quite likely the Cons won't be in the driving seat. If there's any way to help save Brexit from being a complete flameout disaster, we'll have to see. There may even be some means to cancel it, though I'm hardly banking on that - as it's untested legal territory, such flexibility exists, subject to everybody's discretion.

They could still be trying to form a working coalition government at the point the brexit talks are scheduled to start.
