General Election 2017 Poll

Because our last poll was pretty representative (despite the usual vocal lefties, we seem to be a bellwether), let's go again.

Vote!

Who I'm voting for isn't who I want to vote for unfortunately. It's become an anti Tory vote rather than actually being for Labour.

Being a member of Unison I kind of have to vote labour, I also like their manifesto a lot. However voting Tory to force them to go through with negotiating brexit, fail and spend 20 years in the wilderness as punishment is appealing. I'm also live in a Tory safe seat so meh.

There was a guy on 5 live earlier, he was in his 60's, he said it was the best manifesto he had ever heard. Just got to get JC and Abbott to get the figures correct.

That'll be the fourth one down m8 - the one with the former Olympic champion and Titanic survivor (or whatever he's claiming this week) as leader.

Lib Dems.

Where I live (Surbiton and Kingston) Labour have no chance of winning, and like fuck am I giving the Tories an extra vote.

Hah! I'd voted Lib Dem my entire life pretty much, but in the last election did vote Conservative, mainly as there was no talk of Brexit at that time, I thought Cameron was doing a pretty good job and the LD's had sold out massively.

Since then our local MP, James Berry, has been nothing but a disaster. He's used public funds to lease out a shop with his name above the door at the cost of 50,000 per year. This shop "office" is supposed to be a drop in centre for people to visit him and discuss problems, suggest ideas... he's there once a week for 2 hours. The rest of the time it's empty. He also refused to vote for EU worker rights in parliament, despite almost 70% of his constituency voting remain. He also supports fox hunting and was against gay marriage.

Hindsight and all that!

Is that really true? He only reports office expenses of 13k last year, and only half of that was rent.

I'm only going on what was written in a local paper a few weeks ago, haven't looked into it.

Regardless of the figure, he has barely used it as described and is still a giant waste of money.

Sticks in my craw to vote labour, but it's mostly to try and remove Tory majority. Would prolly vote LibDems is there was a real choice. https://www.tactical2017.com/

Popbitch had some fun analysis:

Back in the EU referendum, the betting odds favoured Remain because more money had been placed on it, even though a greater number of individual bets were on Leave.

In the US Presidential election, Clinton was favourite because more money was put on her, but many more people were betting on Trump.

In this general election more money has been placed on the Conservatives, but a shitload more bets are on Labour.

It can't happen, can it? Two is a coincidence but three would be a trend, right?

That's almost by definition though. How many people get excited about putting money on at 1/4, vs 4/1?

On which topic, you'll get 11/1 on Betfair for Labour to win most seats, which feels like much better value than 1/10 on the Tories.
