We desperately need a strong government now...with a good majority.
We await the EUs response on the extension with more than a little interest.

From what I can see.... not election this year. [eusa_naughty.gif]

Liberal Democrats want no Brexit.
In Scotland this is the same policy as the SNP
There worried about losing seats to the SNP including Jo Swinson, East Dunbartonshire.

Labour are in trouble, no clear policy and they will lose seats in the North of England, London and the home counties.

The extinction rebellion damaged the Green party. Few will vote for them now. Caroline Lucas lack of involvement with the extinction rebellion damaged her reputation with the students. Lack of activity and interest in local issues such as Brighton pavilion gardens phase 3 means even older voters would think twice before voting for her now.

DUP' anti gay/ abortion stances means few will vote for them. There pro Brexit policy put them at odd's with many Northern Ireland voters too.

Conservative Party vote will be split between the Brexit party. They will lose seats in London and the north. The one to watch out for is Peter Bone, MP for Wellingborough. It's a safe Tory seat, but there's reports his hard Brexit stance is out of touch with votes there.

And all those MP's who swapped parties or became "independents" will lose their seats. The main parties will field candidates in their constituencies. Chuka Umunna who holds the safe labour seat of Streatham with a 12,000 majority will be gone after moving to the Liberal Democrats

It's a mess and they know it.

An election will put most MP's out of office and on the dole.

With Christmas coming up and facing being out of work.......I can't see these turkeys voting for Christmas :think:

I think Boris is in a hurry. He will use every guile he has to get an early election.
The EU, with Macron's help, may yet come up with the right answer.
Dong Prophesy...……………..December election.

I can't see them voting for an election on Dec 12 next week :think:

If they agree to it, all bills stop and Parliament closes. Johnson can then take the UK out of the EU on 31 Oct without an agreement or Parliament's consent :rolleyes:

With only 6 days of October left, that doesn't seem very likely!

Johnson wants to leave on the 31 Oct.
Still no agreement on the EU extension.

Once they vote for an election.... Johnsons got a free hand :think:

I think he'll take the UK out on 31 Oct........without a deal.

Here is a "reality check" for you :whistle:

The university students will be heading home around 12th Dec for Christmas. If the weather's bad people wont turn out to vote.

Without the support of students or rural communities, parties like labour or SNP will lose seats.

15% was the lowest and the vote still mattered :winedrinker:
