Find the most unlikely candidate and vote for them. If everyone voted for JR Soapstone (equal rights for Owls party) someone, somewhere might just get the message!

Heís right in one respect. The world is laughing at us and our Neanderthal population. Watch JRM live on Facebook and gammon watch. Rarely do we see a properly formed sentence. Itís mostly ďWTO NOW!Ē despite the fact they donít have an O level between them, let alone an Economics one. Turkeys voting for Christmas. Gobble, gobble.

What I do find interesting with this particular election is that the Liberal Democrats have failed to find enough candidates to challenge all the seats whereas Labour have.

Conservatives have also, but that's a given really. For years we have been told that Labour can't win here, but now they could and seem to have a decent amount of support. That's quite a change as one of the reasons they couldn't win before was simpy because there wasn't anyone standing!

As for my personal vote, I am so torn. I only have the three major parties to choose from so I might just go and draw a big c0ck on the paper. And balls obviously.

My own personal prediction is that both Tory and labour parties take a drubbing, many, many people are now thoroughly fed up with the lies and infighting from both camps.

Hmm, JRM, no O level, hmm, let's see. Oh yes, educated at Eton college. Second class honours degree at Trinity college. Learned to read company reports and balance sheets at the age of ten when he started investing in the stock market. (Note please that that's a proper degree, not a Billy Liar degree).

But he is a brexiteer so he must be a thick racist. Newres says so.

Got to be Liberal Democrats for me in the local elections. Slightly torn between them and Change UK in the upcoming European elections though.

I don't thing a c0ck and balls is strong enough. I'd wipe my a$$ on it. It will be interesting to see the number of "spoiled" or possibly "solied" ballot papers.. I believe it will be a record percentage.

Never understood why anyone would take the effort to get to a polling station only to spoil their ballot paper. Unless you're newres of course, they don't take kindly to people scribbling on the papers with a Crayola.

I wasn't talking about JRM. He will be unaffected and probably to the good as a result of Brexit. I didn't do any Keith Waterhouse novels in my English degree. I have read that one though.

I don't think they really care, just another column to tick. But I think there will be record numbers of spoiled papers and I just want to feel part of something that is actually growing for once.

🗳 Today is #LocalElections2019 day!

☑️ NORMAL PEOPLE: Go vote for who you feel will be best to represent you locally. Polls close at 10pm

☑️ GAMMON: Go on your local Facebook group and tell us you wonít vote for the main parties (despite the fact these are local elections), angrily read The Sun or Daily Mail, claim youíre voting Brexit party or UKIP, waddle along to the polling station and spoil your vote...thatíll show Ďem, wallow in your own brine, punch your keyboard, make out the media are hiding the truth, claim the BBC are biased, scrape your dried bodily fluids off your yellow vest, change your profile picture to include a union flag, or a poppy, or a soldier in silhouette [you choose], go back on Facebook and post a badly-photoshopped and pixelated meme containing factually incorrect information, then post another one as not enough people clicked like on the first one which annoyed you, ejaculate over Brexit, get angry whilst watching Question Time, go on Facebook to tell everyone youíre angry watching question time, bring Dianne Abbott into an online conversation despite the fact sheís probably irrelevant to the original post, punch keyboard again, mummy then sends you to bed.

Remember their candidate from a few years ago, had so little clue about pollution issues he thought bragging about his land rover running on used chip fat was 'being green' and couldn't see the irony of him heating his house in the country by burning wood. Oh how we laughed.

Your own vote or lack of it is of course your own personal choice. In the 2017 general election in the Newbury constituency there were 144/60,999 spoiled votes or 0.236% of votes cast. Let's see if this percentage is exceeded in these local elections but I would certainly expect some eating of words to be done if this relatively low percentage is not exceeded by some margin.

I'd rather be a "Gammon" chap than you. I don't think it's a coincidence that most people that join this forum find you to be an appalling creature. I did vote by the way. Always have. Always will.

Or even Jeremy Corbyn,

2016: We on the Labour Benches respect the referendum result and accept that Britain must leave the European Union."

FEB 2019: "We will back a public vote in order to prevent a damaging Tory Brexit or a disastrous no deal outcome."

Your own vote or lack of it is of course your own personal choice. In the 2017 general election in the Newbury constituency there were 144/60,999 spoiled votes or 0.236% of votes cast. Let's see if this percentage is exceeded in these local elections but I would certainly expect some eating of words to be done if this relatively low percentage is not exceeded by some margin.


I'm feeling quietly confident...😂

I think the message is clear, May must go, Corbyn must go. The only party leader with any degree of credibility is Cable, and he's going anyway.

UKIP virtually died when Nigel quit, however, saying that, their strength has always been in sending MEP's to Brussels. Now we have the Brexit party who are widely tipped to do the same. What I and others were surprised at yesterday was the almost catastrophic failure of labour to punish the Tories. The lib Dems turned out again to be the party of the protest vote with surprising results for the Indies. Mays election will be interesting to watch. I was thoroughly entertained by yesterday's events, it's an (interesting) time for politics.

☑️ NORMAL PEOPLE: Go vote for who you feel will be best to represent you locally. Polls close at 10pm

☑️ GAMMON: Go on your local Facebook group and tell us you won’t vote for the main parties (despite the fact these are local elections), angrily read The Sun or Daily Mail, claim you’re voting Brexit party or UKIP, waddle along to the polling station and spoil your vote...that’ll show ‘em, wallow in your own brine, punch your keyboard, make out the media are hiding the truth, claim the BBC are biased, scrape your dried bodily fluids off your yellow vest, change your profile picture to include a union flag, or a poppy, or a soldier in silhouette [you choose], go back on Facebook and post a badly-photoshopped and pixelated meme containing factually incorrect information, then post another one as not enough people clicked like on the first one which annoyed you, ejaculate over Brexit, get angry whilst watching Question Time, go on Facebook to tell everyone you’re angry watching question time, bring Dianne Abbott into an online conversation despite the fact she’s probably irrelevant to the original post, punch keyboard again, mummy then sends you to bed.


Personally, I think children should not be allowed to post here, but as 'newres' is here I may as well respond to his/her trolling ad hominem.

'Thought of you guys' - I'm not sure you are capable of independent thought at all. You post sneeringly about about others posting a meme, but in fact the entire text of your post has been lifted, word-for-word, from a childish online magazine on Facebook.

Pot. Kettle. Black.

I guess you don't have the intellect to make your own arguments, so borrow other people's lame stereotypes instead.

Except of course, when you drill down into the results the lib Dems did well in some very strong brexit areas but poorly in some remain areas, what was interesting was that the polls were wrong again. Let's see how well lib Dems do in May.

I'm disappointed.

I hoped that by pointing out the dismal calibre of your recent posts, you'd make the effort to say something insightful, or constructve. My low opinion of you was, evidently, still too high.

If you are a child, best you go off to a Pokemon forum or whatever entertains children nowadays.

If you think are an adult.. well, good luck with that self-delusion. With your inept social skills, inability to put forward an intelligent view rather than attack other's in a childish way, (or simply cut and paste other people's views as you are incapable of formulating a mature one of your own), and your general predisposition to be an idiot, I see a mediocre future for you.

Anyway, no point in engaging with you further. If I wanted to read any more crap (I don't), I could just go to the intellect-free sources that you cut and paste from.

Bye-bye, kiddie. dry.gif

The fact of the matter is Brexit is something that divides political opinions, like no other and it causes anger and resentment. The Brexit party is currently running at 30% in the polls and I would expect that figure to be nearer 40% at the EU elections. The reason... a lot of people won't say they are voting for Brexit because of people like you. They don't want to be branded a xenophobe or a racist or thick. Just so you know when you wake up on the 23rd of May to 2016 revisited.😂 People like you harden brexiteers opinions.

See! Learn something every day, 78.6% of people in Lambeth are racists! Who'd a thunk that? Probably a nazi stronghold as well.

UKIP virtually died when Nigel quit, however, saying that, their strength has always been in sending MEP's to Brussels. Now we have the Brexit party who are widely tipped to do the same. What I and others were surprised at yesterday was the almost catastrophic failure of labour to punish the Tories. The lib Dems turned out again to be the party of the protest vote with surprising results for the Indies. Mays election will be interesting to watch. I was thoroughly entertained by yesterday's events, it's an (interesting) time for politics.

Actually, having looked at the results your assertion re ukip is only partially correct when compared to 2015. Compared to 2018 the Conservative and Labour vote share fell equally by 7%, while UKIP gained 1%.

Given the enormous swing to the independents and the fact that Labour came out for a second referendum before the polls, this seems more like an anti-politician result than anything obviously Brexity.

I didnít, but to return to the subject, in polls Iíve seen the Labour vote is holding up. In my opinion if they offered a confirmatory vote theyíd leave UKIP for dead. Itís such a shame because despite what you choose to believe, the overwhelming majority of members and a clear majority of Labour voters are Remain.

Most people want to Remain now.

They probably do. They have just given up hope of what they asked the government to do being enacted. Personally I believe this was our last chance. When the chickens come home to roost we will know who to blame....

Whatís happened is that itís become apparent that what was promised wasnít deliverable. There was no access to the free market without free movement. Cameron warned of this but he wasnít believed. The chickens have come home to roost already and thatís why weíre where we are.

Iím accused of childishness but what is more childish than saying NO DEAL, JUST LEAVE when itís become apparent that the promises canít be fulfilled?

Because that is what was voted on? I don't remember anything being on the ballot apart from stay or leave... not degrees of either. Would you at least admit then that the actual question was wrong to start with. Should it have just been stay or stay? WHAT A CROCK of EFFLUENT you come up with. PS.. I can use shouty CAPS LOCK as well.😂😂😂😊

Germany about to tip into recession, France following it, Italy and Greece with basket case economies and people still think it's a great idea to shackle us to to the rotting corpse of a failed experiment.

What, so the recessions that all capitalist economies suffer are the fault of the EU? Oh dearie me. So were the WU responsible for the crash in 2008?

Not sure who the WU are but the cause of the recession was a bunch of crooked bankers dealing in dodgy derivatives. That's not capitalism. It's criminality.

For the record I'm a remainer. I was quite adamant that we should have been given a vote on it, and planned to vote leave, but something stopped me the night before the vote. So I totally understand the Brexit point if view. However, that vote was three years ago and since then we have seen the shambles unfold and one area where I think we all can agree, is that we are not getting anything like what we were promised. So should we revisit the vote now we know the truth? In my opinion yes, it's far too important to just let it go and I will continue to push for a second referendum, not because I didn't like the result of the first one, but because I don't like what has happened since. I try to take on board everyone's views, and opinions and I try not to get aggressive or upset by those who differ.

However in 3 years I haven't heard a single good, tangible benefit for leaving so I do get frustrated that the whole thing seems very tribal. When people say lets just leave with no deal, I question if they understand what that really means, ad mostly they don't. So we have a real problem and it is bound to cause people to get rowdy with each other. Newres didn't start off being the way they are, he's become frustrated with all the arguing and to be fair, you lot haven't been very nice to him either. I think some of you need to look at your posts and question whether you really think you are being reasonable and forming a valid opinion. Or playing to the mob mentality. Perhaps we need to call a forum truce, draw a line under what's gone and start again? We are all just people making our way through our lives and our journeys are all different.

And this he said she said nonsense is getting boring. You can't join the Brexit party as a member, but it is a political party. So you both made a good point.

I agree, but I am coming from the other direction. I voted leave but having witnessed the shambolic behaviour of the very people who would be in charge had we just left on the 29th March I am inclined to now think if we remained a fully paid up member it would not be a bad thing. My concern with another plebiscite is a similar 50/50 vote, (approx), which will solve nothing. Perhaps we need someone to stand up and say "f**k democracy we are staying in" because we are never going to agree this thing that history will call the "Cameron Cockup". angry.gif
