That's me out of this thread then.


I will never call KS party but it actual name,

Its about time the UK changed the voting from Thursdays to Saturday & Sunday.


More people would likely vote, plus parents wouldn't be forced to take a day of school when it's a polling station.


I've been voting by post for about 4 years
It’s not an airport, you don’t need to announce your departure.

I’m not sure moving the vote to a weekend would increase turnout here’s some interesting reading

I’m sure this was nothing to do with it…

Sir John was forecast to lose his seat despite winning a majority of more than 7,000, equivalent to 12 per cent, at the 2019 general election, highlighting the scale of the challenge to Mr Sunak following a significant national swing against the Tories during the intervening five years.

Re: The traditional CF voting intentions thread, week 1

Indeed.

It'd be interesting to know on current polling (usual caveats) what seats are actually "safe". There must be a ton of "at risk" big names.

Well if we take the extremely accurate CF poll, 10% support would leave them with 5 seats

Seph has no reason not to vote for another Party now that his favourite MP has bottled it.

I'm sure Seph will step up and vote Lib Dem. Now that his favourite politician has bottled it, his excuse to continue voting for what he acknowledges as incompetence is gone.

If we could vote online I think that'll increase turnout.

Context



On a related note…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-69052837

Quote:
Mr Tice will stand in Boston and Skegness in Lincolnshire, where Conservative MP Matt Warman had a majority of 25,621 in the 2019 general election.

Reform currently has one MP, Lee Anderson, who defected from the Tories in March.

"Contrary to what all the commentators say, the likes of my good friend Lee Anderson and myself, we are going to win seats," Mr Tice told the party's campaign launch in London.

He played down Mr Farage's decision, saying he would "be helping out significantly" during the election campaign.

The GB News presenter is cancelling his show on the channel for the duration to free up time for campaigning
.
Nothing to do with this, then?

https://www.ofcom.org.uk/news-centre...neral-election

Quote:
Warning to broadcasters who use politicians as presenters in election programming
With a General Election due to take place before 25 January 2025, we are also sounding a warning to broadcasters to maintain the highest level of due impartiality, in line with our enhanced rules that apply during election periods. Any breaches of election programming rules are likely to be serious and to result in Ofcom considering the imposition of statutory sanctions.

In particular, broadcasters are reminded that Rule 6.6 of the Code prohibits candidates in UK elections from acting as news presenters, interviewers or presenters of any type of programme during the election period. Politicians who are not standing as candidates in a UK election can present non-news programmes - including current affairs - during election periods, provided that programme complies with all relevant Code rules.

Seph’s a card-carrying party member. Given the mass exodus of Tory MPs and there being around 100 local associations who have apparently yet to choose a candidate, it’s more likely he’ll throw his hat in the ring himself, just 4 teh l0lz.
