Lets see what the flavor of opinion is on the forum in terms of the coming British general election.

Without the SNP in the poll, this thread is meaningless....

Shocked by the levels of support for the Tories on this forum. If a bunch of hard left and deep green hippies are supporting the Tories in such numbers looks like a big Tory victory is looming...

Are you "hard left or deep green hippy"? There have always been many on this forum who aren't.

In 2011 the overwhelming majority of those on this forum supported the change in the electoral system. The real referendum result was the opposite with a strong vote for the status quo.

There has always been a left/green bias on this forum, even taking into consideration that there are more centrist individuals who have been actively involved for many years.

I would have expected a stronger Labour and Green performance.

Pleasantly surprised Smile

I have to confess to being one of the Conservative voters on this poll. in reality however because I have been out of the country more than 15 years i can no longer vote in UK elections.

I like the thought of a 'deep' green party, strongly right-wing in some
but not all policies. Not at all like the UK Green party that seems to have been taken over by former Marxists.

I would normally have voted conservative but not this time, she doesn't deserve a huge majority.

Labour will crank up the national debt faster. Tories will screw the majority for sleaze and ideology. Neither party will stop mass immigation, or can allow UK pop to fall, because they both did the same PPE courses.

That is ill informed bollocks. As a matter of arithmetical FACT, Labour have consistently paid more off the national debt and have borrowed less over the last 70 years compared to the Tories. But, you'd never know that from the bullshit mythology peddled about Labour.

Don't believe me? Go and look up the number on the ONS.

Seriously, 'Nobody' won the last election by a landslide!

Last time there were ~45m voters, of which ~11m voted Tory and ~15m voted 'Nobody' (by not turning out). Cool

Can't we just have sortition and get on with our day? Rolling Eyes
