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 fΓΊcks 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

When you claim class has nothing to do with response to being attacked.....you reveal something.

What do you think that is?

Am not paying full attention, but are we talking about Labour leader Milliband here?

Like Labour leader's are better human beings????

Blair???????

TR has assaulted people on numerous occasions and committed mortgage fraud. He is not comparable to Prescot.

I didn't compare him to anyone...

I'm not even sure what "we can deal with WTO" even means?? "Default is Brexit under WTO rules" is yet another meaningless soundbite you've picked up from the Brexiteers. Its nonsense. The WTO does not cover vast areas of the economy. It's not some magic bullet.

Do we just sacrifice data security, (in a ever increasing digital age) the aviation industry, counterterrorism, security, policing, huge areas of financial services, medical supplies, pharmaceuticals etc just to heed the "will of the people" Not to mention breaching the GFA. Or are international peace treaties more collateral??

I'd argue if a normal pragmatic leave voter was made aware of the hugely damaging effect that a no deal would have across the country, they might, just might have second thoughts.

In regard to Brexit the country was lied to. What was possible, and the trade offs. As I've mentioned on countless occasions Northern Ireland was an afterthought. No one seemed to realise that taking back control of our borders would somehow impact our only land border with the EU. Who knew...

If politicians and journalists (not all) had been more honest with the public, people could have made an informed decision. Also, prior to the referendum, trade, customs, and the EU institutions were never newsworthy items.

How bad do things have to get before fact based evidence and critical thinking surpass hope's and dreams?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

It’s not a meaningless sound it’s at all.

If we have no deal ratified in parliament by the end of October our fate rests with the EU as to whether they will compromise (they won’t), we revoke Article 50 (we won’t) or the EU grant us a further extension (anyone’s guess).

So that leaves us essentially with having a further extension or we leave (or are kicked out) with no deal in place. That means we will be dealing under WTO rules.

As for dealing with it; businesses can deal with it. Mine can. I acknowledge some might not but others will certainly adapt and there will be new business opportunities. We aren’t going to cease to function as a country ffs.

Anyway I’m done with this now for another day. It’s late and I’m tired. I’ll pop on now and again to liven things up.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
We already trade on WTO rules. Anything which improves on baseline/default obligations is an improvement. Four decades of heavily interlinked add ons/enhancements has resulted in the most advanced trading arrangements in human history.

Reverting to baseline commitments is akin to driving down the motorway at 100mph and putting the gearbox back into first gear.

How would UK counter terrorism agencies "deal with" losing access to EU security databases? 750+ treaties cease to apply to the UK. But we'll deal with it. According to the government (most likely a conservative forecast...) customs checks alone would cost business £13bn a year. That must be music to the ears of the UK manufacturing industry...

What happened to the benefits of Brexit. Damage limitation is exactly selling it to me.

To be honest we've been here countless times on this thread but for some reason a few people believe (based on nothing but hope) that everything will be fine.

And yeah there are plenty of critics for Corbyn on here (and rightly so), I just find it hilarious how so many jump to TR defence.

Just saying people are quick to attack the right here but as soon as the questions are asked to Corbyn about his history, it’s a smear campaign. Replace Corbyn with a right wing politician and suddenly it’s true

By the way TR is a racist and should be challenged and ignored as a nut job
