    After the French GE the snigger will be on the other side of those smug ba$tards mugs.

    The reality of life in Britain unless you are coasting on 50, 000 a year and crucially on the housing ladder is pretty sh*t. The trick of BREXIT was to convince people that was Junckers fault. All him and Merkel.

    I suppose one day they will wake up. When the Tories flog off the Sacred Cow - the NHS - and they will do it in a New York minute.
    All valid points but given your history of being wrong about almost ever recent political event, is there a chance you might be right about this one?

    Right about what? You dont think life in Britain is basically sh*tty unless you are high earner, and even then not all that great unless you own your house?

    Or that the 17 million voters vs 16 million isnt exactly an overwhelming mandate for BREXIT?

    Or that T May has no plan except to wipe out Labour?

    Which bit didnt you understand?

    I rely on people like you to explain the complexities of such matters. However a lot of EU immigrants seem to think life there is pretty good compared to their home countries.

    You did expect Brexit to fail, didn't you? You didn't really anticipate the result of having Drunken Juncker and his gang of unelected maggots lecturing the British on what they should do?

    This is a post-UK election whether you and others realise it. Scotland is already been written off and NI is being sidelined. The battle for control is in England and Wales. (There's also that rather inconvenient expenses story.)

    Do you think that May will succeed or will she accidentally create a more powerful LibDems along with a fragmented Labour party and reabsorb some of the UKIP vote into the Tory vote?

    That sounds like emotionalism and hysteria from you, to be honest.

    I dont think you have much understanding why 17 million people vs 16 million voted BREXIT (and 9 million stayed at home).

    Why dont you check out the constituencies guide I posted on the other thread, and number crunch them? Your detailed prediction will be fascinating, I am sure.

    Sounds like Dublin without the NHS to be fair.

    You'll be calling me a feminist next.

    And yet I predicted that they had a very good chance of winning when all you Remanians got it wrong.

    I hope that some candidates from my favourite party are running.

    Waiting for your analysis, this is the polling thread after all.

    Yes, Corbyn needs to go after the Blairites and crush those damned reactionary, caplitalist-roaders. Such a demonstration of Labour unity will guarantee a Tory defeat on June 8th.
