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.

Interesting night so far.

I agree.. for the first time in my life I couldn't bring myself to vote for any candidates though. TBH if a slug had been standing I'd have voted for that...so I did what I said I would do and wrote a few thoughts about the state of democracy. And then added a big c0ck and balls..🤣

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."

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.

In all seriousness though, given that the swing is to the Libdems, if Brexit was a big factor in deciding how to vote, Iíd say it was a very good night for Remain.

Let wait and see what happens May 23rd. Turnout will be far higher and a brexit option will be on the ballot.

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.

Thought of you guys:

�� 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 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.

You're the 'knobhead' on this forum, kiddy.

P.S. Dianne Abbott is never relevant to anything.

Yes, the only Remain party got far fewer seats than the Tories. What a Remainer Victory...

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

PS if there are any Remainer adults here I'm perfectly happy to listen to them. This place is a forum, after all. But not a kindergarten.

I'd be looking over my shoulder all day and night if u really believe that... after all extremists often commit acts of extreme violence. I don't quite see JSC or me firebombing you...we wouldn't waste our time and lives on such a saddo. Toodlepip.

It doesnít occur to them that Iím pretty much the only contributor with a different view and a new/returning knobhead posting and joining in the abuse dished out by the regulars is something much less than noble. And what was even more amusing was when he was responded to in kind he expressed disappointment and disappeared with his tail between his elderly legs.

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.
