The Footie 2019 General Election Thread

Vote Labour, vote LibDem, vote anything. Just fucking stop them.

Lab/Con marginal for me. 3,500 Lab majority in 2017.

I loathe Corbyn. I'll vote Labour.

SinnerBoy - 30 Oct 2019 00:01:16 (#2 of 351)

I've got to say, we haven't always got on, pops, but I bloody well admire your stance.

Fairly tight Lab/Con seat - here's my contesting Tory candidate:

popstar7 - 30 Oct 2019 00:37:02 (#4 of 351)

It falls OK for me, tbf, SB. I've never not voted Labour and I won't have to this time.

And apologies for being a cunt at times. Politics brings out the worst.

We have six weeks and one enemy.

Same constituency, widenation. Fancy a beer?

widenation - 30 Oct 2019 00:55:50 (#6 of 351)

Really! Yeah any time... Morley may pose a threat to Rodda - can't help thinking that he has 'enhanced' his CV somewhat - odd climate change stance, seems to have worked on climate control projects abroad yet massively critical of anything related to extinction rebellion etc. Pro Brexit under the idea that Reading should have protective status as a 'Special Economic Zone' etc.

popstar7 - 30 Oct 2019 01:05:26 (#7 of 351)

Off to bed now. But delighted to meet up for a beer and a chat if you fancy it.

Take a jumper as a present:

Tinymcsmithy - 30 Oct 2019 02:16:19 (#9 of 351)

My Labour MP is a Corbyn neutral centrist. Happy to vote for them.

misosoup100 - 30 Oct 2019 02:45:28 (#10 of 351)

Who agreed to this election?

You might be looking at Hard Brexit plus 4-8 years of Boris.

HerpDerp - 30 Oct 2019 04:28:23 (#11 of 351)

Not if Labour boot Corbzy and run on a 2nd-ref ticket (let me dream plz)

but yeah, basically fucked

Peacock - 30 Oct 2019 05:27:31 (#12 of 351)

miso is spot on

Vendor - 30 Oct 2019 06:34:18 (#13 of 351)

My MP is a 'hang 'em and flog 'em' old school Tory. He's also got a majority of about 26,000. I'm tribal Labour, but would consider the Yellow Tories if they had a better chance.

They don't.

nac1001 - 30 Oct 2019 07:00:12 (#14 of 351)

Just fucking stop them.

That's the spirit.

Like Vendor I'd consider LD if they had a better chance but they got 5% last time to Labour's 31%.

The Saj got 62% so my vote isn't going to make a lot of difference.

Moschops - 30 Oct 2019 07:04:57 (#15 of 351)

14K Tory majority here, but was a LibDem seat as recently as 2010, so will be voting for them (tbh, probably would anyway if it was an even 3 way split, such is my distaste for Corbyn). Hoping enough Labour voters do likewise, but there are local planning issues that mean a lot of people are anti-LD (they control the council), so Mims is probably gonna get back in, and support the Tories in every single parliamentary vote.

darkhorse - 30 Oct 2019 07:09:58 (#16 of 351)

Not if Labour boot Corbzy and run on a 2nd-ref ticket (let me dream plz)

They are running on a 2nd referendum ticket!

I was surprised to find that msdarkhorse also hadn’t noticed Labour’s eventual move to backing a second referendum.

I wonder if this reflects in the wider electorate? If so, will Labour voters lost to the LDs/Greens return?

I noticed Ben Bradshaw on the radio was emphasising Labour as the only major party offering a referendum on the wireless this am.

CloakAndDagger - 30 Oct 2019 07:40:15 (#17 of 351)

Jesus. Matt Hancock on bbc is being a fucking moron. “Get Brexit done”. “Chaos with Corbyn”. The talking points have been delivered and he is sticking to the script.

We’ve got 6 weeks of this shit.

Moschops - 30 Oct 2019 07:48:03 (#18 of 351)

My MP has just announced she will not be standing in the GE

Tadagee - 30 Oct 2019 08:08:21 (#19 of 351)

My seat had Sam Gymiah with a majority of around 24000. Thought it might be interesting with him as a Lib but looks like he's standing elsewhere.

thisonehasalittlehat - 30 Oct 2019 08:10:52 (#20 of 351)

I'd encourage people to vote for any party that is best placed to defeat a Tory candidate.

Except the brexit party. Obviously.

And ukip.
