I've seen quite a few elections and voted for most parties in my time depending on what they offered the country.

This one seems to be defined by ever increasing promises of spending, and short adoption timescales suddenly fixing everything this time. I just hope they don't break Britain in their frustration to get/keep their own MP Job and impose their particular vision on us all.

Perhaps even it'll just be another hung parliament and we'll get to keep voting forever.

Enjoy your voting and lets see how the sun rises on Friday morning 97593_1575987553.jpg

Those that lose will dispute the result and want another referendum

Those that win will be unable to do anything without vilification by those who lost and their minions in the media and on-line

I despise the bulk of the commentators and activists (of whatever party) in this country, I have come to loath the whole broken process and despair for the future

It won't affect me, I'm too old and look forward to no longer being here but god help those left behind

(as you may guess by now - I'm sick of the lot of them and for the first time in my life will not be taking part)

I voted last week so cannot affect the outcome any more (postal vote). Given the awful weather this time of the year (rain for Thursday), I bet more wish they had requested a postal vote. I did not vote for a party but this time just voted for the individual who I thought would be the best local MP.

By now I've usually decided on whome to vote for and right now I've no confidence in any of them. It could be the first time that I've not voted in a general election.

My vote makes no difference; never has, I've always lived in safe-seat constituencies.

That's my strategy. We have a very good MP but who is now standing as an independent because he can't stand his party any more. He did a good thing for us when my mother in law had a nasty problem, so although i know he doesn't stand a chance of winning, my conscience will be clear. It's a safe seat where i am anyway so nothing i do will make the slightest difference.

I have always voted for the same party for the last 55+ years. I won't be voting for them again. Nor will my wife who has the same opinion.
Just dreading the 12th/13th December when this country finally loses the little status in the World rankings politically and financially that it was clinging onto.Sad

this thread made me think back on my political history. I started out with a childhood straight from the worst Dickens novels, born during the war and abandoned by both parent, raised in the country by grandparents then placed in a Baptist home for unwanted children at somewhere between 3 and 4 years old (they could no longer afford to keep me)

Narrowly avoided being sent to Australia as a "10 bob" child then finally taken on from the home by my father at 10.

More crap happened (schooldays are not really the best days of you life) and started work literally with the clothes on my back and nothing more

Out of work for around 18 months as a result of a motorcycle accident, under the age of 21 so no un-employment or sickness benefit (that's what real poverty is like!)

Ended up marrying the most wonderful woman who finally showed me what a family could be and helped me raise two amazing sons to very successful careers.

In that time I started out as a nihilist / anarchist, then hard left socialist then finally realised that not one of them cared a damn about society as a whole or the people suffering out there.

Looked for a party that caused the least harm and eventually became a "conservative" (note small c, I was never a "Conservative party member" )

Even then I realised that they didn't care what happened to our society nor yet the individuals therein

I guess the only thing that has changed throughout my voting career is gaining a clear understanding that the only role for the electorate is to vote in these evil swine so that they can lead a very comfortable life at our expense, with no legal consequences however they screw the country and economy up in the process

No wonder I hate the lot of them!

The pre-election dirty tricks have begun in earnest now..... the lies and false news being spread by the two main contestants are getting worse and even more blatant. Our so called neutral BBC is one of the biggest culprits......

No matter what.... I hope that ALL over 80s will totally refuse to pay a tv license again ?

Refuse, refuse any punishments, donít pay any fines....the worst that can happen is a warm bed and three meals a day, with TV, a library and a gymn.

HEY HO!

Yup...and in my declining years Iím almost (almost...) tempted to vote for Corbynís mob...theyíre promising so much improvement in everything, Iíll probably be 6 feet under before the sh1t hits the fan again, and weíre back to ďausterityĒ measures thus caused...
