    My personal view is that there'll be either a massive turnout or a minimal one. I don't see a half-way house on this. Of course, it all depends on how the campaigns are presented but I think it might be difficult to see this other than a second referendum.

    I'll certainly vote and Mrs R has a postal vote. Not sure which way I'll vote as yet though, I want to see the party campaigns and have a word with my local candidates.

    I must confess I never used to bother voting, but this time I really must and it will be for Johnson, as I think voting for Farage may split the vote. I just can't understand why those two parties can't get together and do this Brexit thing.

    From FB.

    Jezbolah confirms that he wants 3.4m EU nationals living in the UK to be able to vote in this election. Along with 16-17 year olds. Boris to pull bill if these amendments get in and pass.

    The last Labour government tried that trick, basically to increase the Labour vote. It contributed to them being kicked out of power in 2010.

    They don't learn, do they? Have they worked out yet why the Brexit vote went the way it did?

    Something a bit more cheerful is Bercow's last stance.


    Boris

    Can't say I've ever been much of a fan of Bercow, but it must be a very difficult job.
