Live Election Day Thread

Who are you all voting for then, come on?

I'm predicting a well-hung parliament. As in, it's gonna be even more split than last time.

Hoping for a surprise Labour majority though. Can't have the tories running a muck for another 5 years for fĂșcks sakes.

If you need any more reasons as to why you should not be voting Tory (which you shouldn't), please visit my twitter account @thedailybmuk
There should be more than enough information there. Yes, this thread is biased

Understanding how culture works is a crucial part of understanding society.

There is definitely a contrast between cultural liberalism, cultural conservatism and Gramscian Marxism - and their effects on how people think and see the world.

Interesting piece by Rutherford - BlueLabour do at least provide arguments worth debating

Eh it's not like the left denies this. They're the ones always banging on about culture wars.

Most folk don't live in ivory towers.

Categorizing things as 'culturally left' is a blanket term for mad internet contrarians and trolls who like to lump everyone that disagree with them, a weary trope from vaccous, unremarkable people

if you say so.

It's a non-term used by limited minds.

I have minimal interest in how various pseudo-intellects on YouTube/Reddit talk about each other.

Where I disagree with you is that are clear cultural differences between contemporary conservatives and today's liberals - I would add progressive cultural values and nationalist cultural values, and far-right cultural values into the equation too.

As for blanket terms - the way people talk about Brexit supporters and conservative voters on here is much more representative of the situation you are complaining about than people observing cultural divides across political lines.

Okay, and I'm being honest in asking (for my own education) culturally, what is leftist and what is right wing?

I never said there was cultural leftism and cultural rightism.

What I have said is that there is a definitive rift between people who have socially conservative instincts and people with a more liberal or progressive mindsets. This is very much reflected in the EU referendum result.

There is also a fascinating cultural rupture on the left between liberalism and progressivism, which can be seen in everything from the US primaries to JK Rowling's tweets.
