as a result of no opposition, i expect may to to increase the tories majority significantly.

... and i also expect that labour will implode and splinter off after the election.

Labour has been in disarray and split into factions since Corbyn sadly

It's what happens when you mix social democrats with diet Tories, I guess.

Honestly speaking, you look at a sizeable chunk of Labour's political figures and you really have to wonder why they don't support the Conservatives. Is it just the stigma of being a Tory that they are repelled by?

i reckon that's why Blair changed the name to "New Labour" - very ambiguous, and gave them free rein to reinvent themselves...

maybe they're Tories but with a bit of a social conscience

This election's been very interesting, or has gone a completely different way than a lot of us thought it would.

While I'm not going to get excited and say Labour can actually win it, I can't believe what a good run they've had this past month compared to the Tories. I'm a Labour member but the day the election was called was fucking depressing. It honestly felt like the Tories were going to walk it, no contest, a month of nonstop shit slinging and people parroting the "Corbyn is unelectable" line because The Sun said so. The apparent change in public opinion, especially of Corbyn, has been a big surprise.

May's plan of calling the snap election that she said she wouldn't simply to cash in on the huge lead in the polls, before repeating a bunch of slogans and sitting back to watch the polls stay the same doesn't seem to have gone so well.

It helps that the Labour manifesto is very good (and that the GrimeForCorbyn thing is terrific and helps to give hope to apathetic youth) - and that May cannot even bring herself to attend a TV debate, and that's the least of her worries at the moment.

I like Corbyn a lot. I hope for a big enough swing.

i think corbyn is utterly inept.

that said, may and the tories seem hell-bent in destroying the lives of everyone. at this point a hung parliament will be the best thing that can happen, with hopefully no king-makers from the libdems serving as the bootlickers that they were in 2010-2015

yep, i caught some of the Paxman interviews/audience questions, and the debate tonight

i've always been a Labour supporter, and have to say, although i was frustrated with Corbyn's non-handling of Brexit and the glaring lack of an opposition since the Brexit referendum, and i've done so many U-turns on my views on Corbyn this past year i now have some serious whiplash, i actually believe in the guy - really think he is what Britain needs right now, with or without Europe, to make for a fairer society and get Britain out of this Tory nightmare

i reaaaaally hope this snap election backfires big time on May - honestly, it's almost like self-harm, back-tracking at every turn, now not even turning up for the big TV debate - it's almost like she wants out - fingers crossed!!
