Maybe we are, maybe we aren't.

"ITV political correspondent Joe Pike says he "bumped into" the PM's most senior adviser Dominic Cummings, who said of an election: "We're not going to have one.""

Hopefully the Brexit party will grab 20 odd percent of the vote and no seats, then we can get rid of the Tories, and teach them a lesson for putting their own interests ahead of the country’s.


I think that will happen at a lot of places KM the brexit party will take votes from  the cons and labour will benefit.

Hooray....finally backed Labour into a corner so they had to at least make a decision, rather than sit on the fence like they have been doing. Corbyn fooled everyone last time, won't happen again! I expect a comfortable Conservative majority, who will then finally deliver what the people asked for, so we can all move on.

Absolute rubbish, the core Conservative leave vote will remain firm, it's the Labour vote that will collapse in leave areas, either by moving to the Brexit party, or more likely abstaining, because they hate Corbyn/ don't want a 2nd referendum a.k.a stop Brexit, and feel Labour are a lost cause.

Quoted from grimsby pete
At last all parties have agreed we will have a election in December,

After all these  months of infighting and petty insults from all parties it will be good it will all end ( we hope )

I hope the government gets in with a decent majority so they can govern whoever they are.


December election, I'm really looking forward to my Christmas Remoaning Turkey

Quoted from Maringer
The stupid thing here is that Johnson could have made his agreement (crap though it is) and got it through parliament (probably with one or two amendments) if there had only been more time to do so. It was his cynical prorogration of parliament later ruled illegal which has led to this.

I don't think forcing an election was his first choice - that was forcing a hard exit. Anybody complaining about this election and the timing of it only has one person to blame. Unfortunately, I don't have any faith that he will get the blame, especially as his cheerleaders in the press will spend the next 6 weeks dishonestly pumping out misinformation and outright lies.

Different scenario entirely, 2 weeks after the European elections, when the protest vote
managed to give the Brexit party 35%, like UKIP in previous elections the Brexit party will fare poorly. Leave campaigners know thst Boris has done everything he can, despite amendments and the opposition trying their best to stop Brexit. The leave voters will punish the Labour Party badly, anybody who believes in democracy will get rid of this 'rotten' opposition.

Already in full flow, looks like he's had a word with the chaps who were paying him £275,000 a year to write a couple of paragraphs every week, asking them, 'as there is an election coming, if they could swerve any sort of responsibility for Grenfell from the tory government to those incompetent fire brigade workers risking their lives.'

What the people asked for? Privatisation of great chunks of the NHS. Accepting bleached chicken from the US. I bet we’ll find that there isn’t enough money after all for all these spending plans Boris has been blathering on about because there’ll be a slow down in the economy.

Two words need to be mentioned: food banks.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.
