People were asked if they would treat this as a normal general election or as a second Brexit referendum.

Normal general election: 67%

Second Brexit referendum: 17%

I want to emigrate. I hate this country.

JoStoyte - 18 Apr 2017 19:09:32 (#3 of 8269)

I'm already working abroad. Sadly I'm returning home on June the fucking 4th.

Off you pop then.

Can someone produce a brief summary as I don't have time to read through the threads.

For good Jo?

I'm going to put a pro Europe sticker on the car.

HerrWalrus - 18 Apr 2017 19:14:50 (#8 of 8269)

Will this be known as the unnecessary election?

You'll be surrounded by baying, gurning Neanderthals, accusing you of treachery, as they sweat into their 'Ing-ur-lund' football shirts.

I hate this country.

By definition 48% of us do. Keep up.

It's all Corbyn's fault.

Or the "Look A Squirrel!" election.

No, he really does though.

1OffManMental - 18 Apr 2017 19:17:47 (#14 of 8269)

I'm serious. I can't fucking stand this nonsense anymore. This idiocy is going to be squatting over the rest of my life spooling turd after turd.

Tangent - 18 Apr 2017 19:21:15 (#15 of 8269)

I love an election, and this is going to be fascinating. I will try and write a quick guide, but it might not be much use

xDiggy - 18 Apr 2017 19:22:13 (#16 of 8269)

Listening to Nanny's hateful little speech this morning gives me the same kind of feeling I get when watching news footage of travelling Inglish football fans smashing up a town square.

Sunfish - 18 Apr 2017 19:22:31 (#17 of 8269)

Who's got your vote, Tangent: David or Huw?

Tangent - 18 Apr 2017 19:25:12 (#18 of 8269)

I cannot not support a Dimbleby. (Although, in a fun fact, Huw Edwards is the only person who has referred to me by name on national television.)

xDiggy - 18 Apr 2017 19:26:14 (#19 of 8269)

As in, Mr Tangent, of Lewisham, pleaded guilty to four counts of petty theft and one count of perjury..

Andyourpointis - 18 Apr 2017 19:26:28 (#20 of 8269)

Oooohh, not gone away. Michael Crick:

BREAKING: The CPS have told Channel 4 News tonight that they are considering charges against more than 30 individuals. #electionexpenses
