Interesting to compare with our exit poll from last time. Looks like Green and UKIP voters have largely returned to their natural homes with the Conservatives/Labour. Labour actually outperforming last time % wise which suggests that the TEF might be a bit more Corbynite than your average voter - not sure anyone would be too surprised by that.

what's UKIP for exactly? I thought Nigel said he'd disband the party if we had a referendum.  Hmmm

So you think May, who has backtracked so many times I've lost count, is credible? Could you provide your rationale, as all I see is a two faced, lying, elitist cunt.

All politicians are two faced, it's why we should have democracy. It allows us throw them out of power. We have to cause them pain of losing office to make them listen. Without that they will ignore us.

It's so depressing to see so many gullible people who are football fans, from a town like Swindon, have been convinced by the mainstream media etc that Labour are some how unelectable, that  they have no choice but to vote Tory.

The stupidity of redneck hick trump voters in The US is one thing, but the fact that  is being replicated in Swindon/uk is enough to make an old man weep.  Doh

Fucking dumb ass hobbits.

Labour as a party is not fundamentally unelectable but with Corbyn Monoxide as leader it is. I don't think anyone is in any doubt about that.

Apart from the hundreds of thousands who voted for him as leader you mean?

This is exactly correct. I am a huge fan of Corbyn, along with those in his constituency who have voted him in every time since 1983. I admire his hard work and dedication to the role, improving lives, his humility, honesty, principles, and most of all the desire to take a wrecking ball to the inheritance-based, tax-avoiding, public-shaming group of multi-million and billionaires we have ruling everything.

I was not a member of the Labour party until they made him stand for a second time in their leadership 'election'. Fuck that! It was 5 to join the first time I think, then I had to pay about 20 a few months later as they'd raised it to try and put people off.

The media bias and pressure against him is huge. Huge. For very clear reasons. The Guardian don't even do him many favours. I started to doubt JC then realised I was just being gradually bombarded and berated by tactical coverage of him, my faith and belief in his obviously steadfast principles being slowly worn down and worming irrational doubts into my subconscious. You need to try and look past all of that coverage, but it is very difficult with the frequency and tone.

Unfortunately I believe, not because of what the media are saying but, because so many seem affected by it, that he has a very small chance. I only hope that, again, this coverage of so many people supposedly doubting his leadership is a guise for weaning away support, in the same way I had started to think. And that people see through another media ploy and stick to their guns.

Anyone with the smallest amount of compassion for other humans, particularly in this country, along with a modicum of intelligence, can see that voting Tory is quite insane unless you are one of their close friends/business associates. Their timing is great as the police forces investigating the expenses misallocation of the 2015 general election will find them guilty after this one is over, and it will have significantly less impact.

I now wonder if that spreadsheet of 'how to keep to tories out' is also a ploy to turn voters from Labour to Lib Dem, which will effectively empower the blues I believe.

Indeed, which is why I've stayed off this thread.

I don't understand the need for personal insults and name calling when people have a different political opinion to your own.  Some of the comments are nothing but insulting.

I will say it again, roughly 500,000 which if they all vote for him in the GE is about a third of what the Greens got last time and much lower than UKIP got.

Party membership/core voter support means absolutely fuck all if the floating voter won't vote for you in numbers, Labour experienced that with Miliband (E) and have not learnt the lesson with Corbyn and will continue to fail to do so until they realise its not student politics or that as portrayed in the Life of Brian.

 Smiley.  I mean I've meant no reference to which way I'll be voting and my views on the various parties.
