    Default General Election 2024

    At least 6 months of campaigning befoe the vote: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-67883242

    With the US presidential election this year as well, it'll be solid coverage on both subjects. I'm going to stop listening to the news now.

    I actually listened to the news this morning. It's amazing how the politicians' soundbites are even more full of words, without saying anything.

    Politicians are masters of talking without saying anything.

    Ironic that Nick Clegg achieves more working for FaceAche than he ever did as an MP. - Still a w*nker, though!

    I don't know who I'll be voting for. I trust Labour even less than I do the Conservatives, and the Lib. Dems. are even more of a non-entity than ever.

    I might use your trick, Rebbonk, and spoil my ballot paper.

    The Greens have announced their candidates for Warwick & Leamington and Kenilworth & Southam. I wonder if they'll keep their deposits

    Don't write anything abusive as the paper is traceable back to you. Rip in in two, as the tellers need to match both halves. - If enough of us do this it really ruins their evening!

    Opinion polls aren't considered particularly reliable, but going by this one, the Conservatives are screwed: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...shi-Sunak.html

    Agreed, things don't look good. I'm no conservative party supporter but the thought of Starmer getting in terrifies the life out of me. His minister for health has already stated that he wants the NHS to focus on women's issues and those that affect ethnic minorities. - That leaves me at the bottom of the pile (again) despite all my heavy financial contributions over the years.

    However, a lot could happen between now and the election!

    Thought I recognised you down here, Rebbonk!! It's the cost of being the cause of all that's wrong with the universe!

    I was going to strat a separate thread for the Bugdet, but it's basically a part of the election campaign: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-68488467

    I started watching it but turned it off due to all the childish behaviour. I'm honestly disgusted at the calibre of person we have running the country.

    I'm glad that Galloway got in to kick a few asses!

    I doubt sometimes whether a quiet and unagitated life would have suited me - yet I sometimes long for it.

    He's certainly going to shake things up, Margaret. Whether he'll do that in a good or bad way remains to be seen.
