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 fúcks 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

It seems these days u have 2b 100% this or 100% that.

My political n social views range from very liberal too fairly right-leaning and many of my friends n aquaintances cannot understand why I am not completey right or left.

If everyone fancies a good old polemic to read instead of COVID and Cummings stuff

Been blocked by a Tory in my town for criticising the government and Dominic Cummings on Twitter.

Shame really as I would have hoped this Tory would have messaged me privately to talk about my tweets and why I am wrong before blocking me.

Hypocrisy really as I’ve spoken with Many Tory members when I was supporting the party and campaigning for them and standing for county council we would discuss our annoyance of how we get treated by some just because we have a different opinion. This woman has been liking and retweeting my tweets for ages. Backing me up in replies. I then take a different stance on this issue and just goes and blocks me straight away.

This person was just a member but I have Tory friends from the local association since supporting them so I would hope they would contact me privately Before blocking me if they chose to do the same.

The reason I am mentioning this is to just get it off my chest but also to explain how quickly people can turn on you if you have a different opinion. Since when did freedom of speech and freedom of opinion stop

Politics is too personal, partizan and petty and perhaps the safety of attacking or blocking you on social media is our new cowardly way of operating!

If the critic does not even have to meet you eye to eye in a room, they often get cocky.....like car rage, where you are in a metal box, and can speed away when you would abuse a guy on the street on foot, lol.

If you met the blocker and talked about unquestioning Cummings loyalty, they might soften, but as on here, strangers and randoms fall out and refuse to compromise or listen.

Pros and cons of social media rumble on....with too many negatives at times😢

The older party guys in Ulster used to have personal and family chats and a bond, even though in public it was a battle, but until covid19, there was a distance between our modern leaders and no friendly relationship to fall back on....hence lack of trust and No Govt for years.

I get the Labour/Liberal/SNP rags desperation to get DC sacked as they want to prove that they can still get to a government that has an 80 seat majority but the tv/radio bullying of him is less clear to me (Sky showed their reporter buzzing the intercom at his elderly parents house and he was then annoyed that they wouldn't speak to him). They should be concentrating on the June 15th shop reopening announcement.

Hopefully this will put an end to the horseshit the lefties regularly come out with about the terrible right wing biased media.

Alastair Campbell is now sharing his faux outrage with us on Sky news, great viewing!

There is a lot of terrible right-wing biased media. There's no point denying that. There's terrible left-wing biased media too.

In this case, though, there's very clearly considerable public interest in this case. It's not a story that's been drummed up out of nothing. It should have been a straightforward 'man done wrong, man gets sacked story' like it was with Ferguson. If anything, Boris is the reason this has got so much attention - you should be bemused by the Tories, not the reaction to them.

Its the Tory back benchers who want him sacked the most. Especially the ERG and Steve Baker. It would have been a non story if they hadn't elevated it so this is not the Rest vs Conservatives.
