Still time for a bit of 'personation' Daz - I'm sure Niall could give you a few tips.

Might be needed, DHD, Labour only hold that seat by 600 votes...

I'm voting labour. I flirted with the idea of voting Tory out of frustration and in protest at labours tactics, certain policies and stance and the way Corbyn has approached certain things.

However, The tories are utterly despicable and no matter how frustrating Corbyn is at least you know he's a good person.

The tories are an utter disease, their ludicrous deal they did with the gutter press around avoiding Leveson part two in exchange for basically murdoch and Dacre calling Corbyn a terrorist for 2 full months is as low as it gets.

Nope labour it is even though I know full well they will get trounced.


Well done! Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour team have run an excellent and inspiring campaign. I'm still hoping for a shock result tonight, even if it looks unlikely.

Decaf, the Irish (in Ireland) cannot vote for Labour. They do not organise here.


Irish people can vote labour.

Just like my response to the ST email where I lasted a full day before renewing, there I was at 07:05 this morning putting my cross for Labour, just as I have at every election, national or local, that there’s been since I reached the age of majority.

It’s been an odd campaign though. Despite having all the press barons on her side and with all the advantages of a slick and well-funded organisation, May comes across as a stumbling mumbling and confused old biddy who flipped and flopped her way through what looked like a personal waking nightmare. As that poster summed up her and her campaign ‘Strong and Stable – My Arse’.

In contrast, old cold Jezza seemed to relish it all and positively grew in substance, stature and popularity. I’m pretty certain he hasn’t done enough and I still believe he’s a fatally flawed politician, but if it hadn’t been for that daft old bat Dianne Abbott’s asinine performances at crucial times, who knows what might have been possible.

Of course the terrorist incidents had an enormous influence but even then, I was really hoping that someone would properly open up the Brexit debate and we’d get a discourse going on the world of detail that’s been so blatantly and wilfully ignored. I really hoped we’d get some idea of the way forward and what we're in for rather than all this bollocks of ‘not showing our hand too early’.

To get an idea of just how deep in the *%^@ I believe we are over Brexit, read this if you will. It's a piece by Will Hutton from Sunday’s Observer. Hutton is a political economist, an occasional journalist and is currently Master of Hertford College, Oxford.

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/jun/03/britain-being-led-to-epic-act-self-harm-brexit

And weep.

Electing Trump was an unbeatable act of collective stupidity.

But the Brexit vote wasn't that far behind. And its been downhill from there!

Oh, I won't deny it. Until next week, when I possibly will.

Am consistent on Brexit though.

I'd take Mahrez but NOT to replace Sanchez, if we have to replace him then we need Mahrez and someone else as good as him before we even start sorting out other areas, then we have new coaches?, new DOF?, so far nothing apart from a free transfer.. good luck selling those Emirates cup tickets.

Funny how some reference how well run a club Arsenal are when in reality a lot of it would appear rank amatuer. When are you reinventing yourself Arsene?.

I mean, I understand it doesn't really matter unless we actually sign someone come August. But you can't really imply nothing is happening on the transfer front so far.

Why should we care about unsuccessful bids?, also I'm sure that world record bid (if it actually happened) was in part financed on the basis of selling Sanchez afterwards, obviously the club were never going to sell him until ST renewals were in, we all know exactly how Stan Kroenke and Arsene Wenger operate by now.

Because it gives us an idea about the clubs ambition for the upcoming transfer window.

Too right. Remember he booked that player twice in the World Cup. And don't get me started on that time he sent Parlour off against Newcastle.

Terrifyingly encouraging exit polls.

May is toast. Sturgeon is damaged. Jezza is the coming man.

Looks like we'll be doing all this again quite soon.

Doesn't help with the shitpool of Brexit; quite the reverse in many ways.

Prop ye up for a wee border poll, Jezza....
Let's hope that tory figure drops so they can't rely on Arlene, though a one seat majority would never work

It looks like that moment has passed. Hopefully get a Labour revival in Scotland. Put those 30 seats back on and we're in...

That *%^@ Gove thinks they'll get a majority of 20

DUP have only 1 issue regardless of what they try to make us believe. If it comes to it this result could be a disaster for the north.

Got to feel sorry for the English folk now. No partners left in Europe except the jocks. Come on over lads, there's plenty of room for yis in the likes ofSligo and Leitrim. You can build a few roads up there, the European Union will pay for them.

But if the Tories gained in Scotland they must have dropped drastically in England.

It's so weird.

I still think the Tories will get a majority as per last time when exit poll said hung parliament.

But it gives terrifyingly enormous power to DUP.

And small majority or not that's May *%^@**.

There was an overlap but now he is the MP for Uxbridge, and indeed a cabinet minister. In case you don't know Uxbridge is in West London in the Borough of Hillingdon. It's where Brunel University is.

EDIT: I just looked it up. The seat's formal name is Uxbridge and South Ruislip.

Given your track record for getting every prediction totally wrong wouldn't it be better to champion a Labour win , then your 'kiss of death' would guarantee a win for the one you really wanted to triumph....?
