As I indicated yesterday I have closed a couple of other threads and all election related discussion should take place here. If there is some major political/current affairs development that really does need its own thread we will start one off, however from the experience of the 5 general elections that have happened since the creation of the parliamentary constituency of Cable Forum, this is unlikely to be necessary.

---------- Post added at 17:53 ---------- Previous post was at 17:45 ----------

And for the closet Stattos amongst you, here are the results for this seat going back to 2005, taking our exit poll thread in each case as a vote for a fictional candidate in the Cable Forum constituency:

2005
Lab 23
Con 35
LD 34

2010
Lab 24
Con 32
LD 25
UKIP 4
BNP 3 (5 votes!)

2015
Lab 25
Con 36
LD 6
UKIP 21
SNP/Plaid 3

2017
Lab 40
Con 48
SNP 5
Ind 3

2019
Lab 21
Con 55
LD 9
Green 4

Can’t believe we had 5 actual BNP voters here in 2010!

So you can see from the above this has been a pretty safe Tory seat since its creation at the 2005 election. I’m going to stick my neck out and suggest it might not be safe any more.

I think the question is "How many flip-flops can Starmer do in six weeks?"

Place your bets.

I read it just before I went in the gym tonight. Never came out of a gym so pumped up before.

The way he tries to be “a man of the people” is absolutely pathetic. Stick to paying for your car fuel by trying getting your bank card scanned by a barcode reader you absolute plank.

Re: The traditional CF voting intentions thread, week 1

Not impressed with tories but having lived with labour and the mess they have made in Wales. Really not sure about them .More money than England for NHS yet worse figures on delivery. Elected a leader who
was funded by a company convicted environmental crime. Money was given after conviction so was known about. Not forgetting 20mph

Re: The traditional CF voting intentions thread, week 1

Sunak's historic legacy would have been the PM who banned smoking. However, this has been binned now so he won't have much to show for his term. I guess that's better than Truss though.

I think calling an early election so that your hard-fought for policies like Rwanda and the afore-mentioned smoking ban can't actually become law are up there on the flip-flopping front.

Re: The traditional CF voting intentions thread, week 1

Doubt that it matters what I vote.We have a Perpetual Tory MP here but recently/locally the Lib Dems have a small toe hold in local council.

It will be interesting to see how the next door borough will vote considering it's Bravermans fiefdom at the moment.

Re: The traditional CF voting intentions thread, week 1

I would like to know what prompted the seemingly rushed announcement.

Is the economy as good as it's going to get?
Scandal on the horizon?
Was Graham Brady about to knock on his door?
Something else?

Genuine question, you going to know what you're voting for this time?



Blair was a lawyer too btw...

Yes, but do others?

Isnt every election ? Seems like few keep all their promises, on either side.

That's me out of this thread then.


I will never call KS party but it actual name,

---------- Post added at 22:11 ---------- Previous post was at 22:06 ----------

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

I think it should be Saturday and Sunday as well.

That said I do like the overnight count hitting on Friday morning before it takes us into the weekend.
