I'm exactly the same. So much so I don't really care who wins as long as we can get on with actually running the country with a majority government.

If Boris loses it, they will reward someone very handsomely to retire and trigger a by election for Boris to contest. Constitutionally, Boris can be PM without being in the Commons, though it would be politically very difficult to sustain for any length of time. And the way things have been lately, no doubt some public spirited, entirely neutral and very wealthy individual might ask the Supreme Court for its opinion.

Re: Election 2019 - Week 5

Every election there are rumours about the Exit Polls. Last time it was meant to be a blood bath for Labour too.

The thing is you could come to the conclusion that postal votes are bad simply by seeing the volume of them and knowing that older voters tend to disproportionately vote via post.

I also don't think it's illegal to report rumours you've heard. She wasn't revealing anyone's postal votes.

Re: Election 2019 - Week 5

The other 'stronger' rumours (i.e they're tweeted by actual political hacks rather than random accounts) is Labour's vote strong in London but collapsing everywhere else.

Labour has, belatedly, picked a side on Brexit. Unfortunately for them itís the wrong side. I think theyíre about to find out that just enough of their support in the rest of England and Wales was prepared to vote Tory to get Brexit done - similar, though not on the same scale, as Thatcherís victory in 1979, once the country, including sufficient natural Labour supporters, was sufficiently sick of the instability of the previous 3 years.

Polls suggest theyíre dead as a dodo in Scotland, which unfortunately is most likely to disproportionately benefit the SNP given how marginal so many seats are. Even if the Tories increase their vote by a few hundred in the seats they hold, in most of them the SNP only has to increase its vote by a few hundred and one to win. And I think those disaffected Scottish Labour voters who havenít voted Tory yet, arenít very likely to do so now.
