No bias here /S.
If it’s anything like Canada - and with multiple parties, the comparison seems apt - then 43% is enough for a big majority
BoJo has gotta win ... there’s just no comparison between his optimistic attitude and Corbyn’s dour brooding ... even us outsiders can see that
Sure hope Mr. Johnson wins. He is the man for the job.
Corbyn’s motto appears to be “Back to the 70’s”, when Labour’s sclerotic left-wing economic policies left Britain with high unemployment and out-of-control labor unions that struck repeatedly and whimsically.
He cut a pretty cool ad which can be seen at Twitchy
Ukrainian meddling . No, really.
Will Britain stop holding elections for a while after this?
It seems no matter what happens, there is always a new election coming up six weeks later. It has to be maddening for the Leavers. No more Mulligans!!
The most important thing is the margin between Conservatives and Labour.
If it’s +10, he’ll get a majority. If it’s 6 or less it’s a worry.
Tomorrow afternoon the big final seat projection from the people that were on the money in 2017 will be released.
It depends on the margin of victory and how many MORE seats the conservatives take.
IF the margin of victory is small, welcome back GRIDLOCK.
If Bojo wins a majority, it’s going to be 5 years of weeping and despair for lefties and remainers. If he doesn’t, more deadlock and another election within a couple of years to try and get a majority.
