It will give whoever put May into power a virtual dictator power.
Especially as local short-lists will be supplined by central government.
Its a totalitarian takeover by the tories, UKIP smashed by tory moles,
liberal democrats smashed bu Cleggless' ambition.. Labour smashed by
hard left lunacy, and you will elect only candidates chosen by The Party.
I would be surprised now if Brexit will ever be achieved.
Democracy in Britain is probably dead.
If I had all the money I've spent on drink...
..I'd spend it on drink.
Wanting a degree of social cohesion and fairness along the lines of
Sweden, for instance, isn't "hard left". I find it most amusing that
everyone including the BBC is telling me I can't vote for Corbyn because
he is Not Appropriate and people of importance (Keith Vaz do they
mean?) won't accept him becoming Prime Minister. It is perhaps a
mistake to keep telling the British people too forcefully that they
"can't" do something - they might furn round and do it!
So they won't win then..
unless the several million who voted stay decide not to vote for a party
that wants to leave.
Do you really think this election is going to be as expected after the
I will vote for someone that will reverse brexit as will many young
voters that feel they were done in the referendum.
The older voters will vote on the lines they always have.
Anything could happen as a result.
I think there's been a lot of truth in that, but a lot of people
who had always voted Labour for decades have abandoned the party
in last couple of years for two different reasons, Brexit, and the
party's recent move towards the far left (popular with Labour
members, but less so with the bulk of voters they need to attract).
Both Conservative and Labour voters were split on Brexit - it
wasn't a hard left/right issue. Now the Conservatives have come
out heavily for Brexit, they've pulled in lots of Labour Brexiters,
and I think they'll pull in all 5M UKIP voters (UKIP will be dead
in 8 weeks). Conservatives will lose some Remainers to Lib/Dems, but
that will be small compared with their gains from Labour and UKIP.
I think the most significant thing historically will be the number
of traditional left wing voters who've moved well to the right just
to ensure Brexit goes through. They'll probably move back a few
years after Brexit, but for now, they regard Brexit as more important
than left/right politics.

Labour hasn't been a party of the working class - the white working
class for two decades or more. Not since Thatcher really.
Its the party of the nouveau rich middle class, you know 'me grandad
were a milkman but I am a sound engineer at the beeb, and own me own
Working class are way right of Labour.
No Apple devices were knowingly used in the preparation of this post.
My grandad was a proper London wheelwright, then a bus conductor and I
work for a university, so in theory I am an ideal candidate.
Except my other grandad was a barrister's clerk and a freemason. I guess
that side won over :)
