    There are many people rightly pissed of with the status quo with good reason, not just in politics but many areas of society, but before you vote Labour you might like to consider that chopping your own bollocks off is seldom a solution. OK Dianne Abbott did at somepoint I suspect but thats a different matter.

    Yes but only if we are in Spoons am not coughing for three in any of the posh Cheshire or town centre places...unless you let her sit on your face as well, that would deserve and probably require more than three pints.

    I'm of the view that change is necessary. Labour are not likely to be a competent government. But " competent" within the confines of the present system is just more of the same and that equates to a collapsing NHS, chronically underfunded social care and real poverty for millions of people. I see the effects of the cosy system of politics Britain's M.Ps have made for themselves everyday and this government, like the one before it, are basically liars denying it is happening.

    Corbyn is an idealist. I don't agree with a lot of what he says, but he is right about some things and he has principles. That's just about unique in politics and he will fuck over the status quo. So he gets my vote.

    I'll try a cocktail of Viagra, Kronenburg and performance enhancing drugs in the hope of raising a semi.

    I don't know if its down to what he actually says or just a f*ck you, anti establishment vote, which depending on what you believe is what got brexit and trump over the line.
    Brexit and trump were always close votes though, and unless the polls are way out labour have much more ground to make up. I don't think its outside the realms of possibility though for labour to run the Tories a lot closer than the polls suggest and reduce their majority. The very fact that May has called the election though suggests this is unlikely.

    I'm voting Labour because if rumours are true we're having a decent MP here.

    If that wasn't an issue I'd vote Tory because I think they'd get us a better deal from Brussels.

    My prediction is that the Tories will storm the election in a landslide.

    I also haven't been right about an election since about 2001.

    I cannot argue with most of that, I am as far from being a Tory as you can imagine, the fact I am going to vote for them astonishes me.

    The fact that Corbyn flags up all those issues that you and I agree with sadly doesnt make him the answer to those things. The sad truth is he and his party are a shambles and un-electable a term of Corbyn would have the place on the road to being third world.

    As unpalatable as it may be there is really no credible alternative to the Tories and it is hard to see a point in the short term that will change.

    Because we've had the same style of Leaders since I can remember. That's what people mean by the country needs a change unless you're a lover of war, hate and division between mankind, then I'm guessing those people are quite happy with the way things are.
