    HighlandTiger got a reaction from Pipers in UK General Election 2019   
    I think you'll be pleasently surprised just how many seats the Tories take from labour. There are only a few diehard labour seats that will stay labour forever, everything else is up for grabs and there are a lot of seats that only need a swing of a few percent is needed to turn blue.
    Labour will lose a ton of seats in London, some to libdems, the others to the conservatives. Corbyn is a liability, the jewish population will not vote for him, and because they often live in close proximity to each other, their votes can be the difference in many seats.
    Now if labour had a leader that was not a terrorist loving, anti-Semitic, Marxist moron, then the conservatives would struggle to beat labour. But all the time the Labour party is run by metropolitan sychophants, who believes that Corbyn can walk on water, he will continue to believe he has a chance. 
    My prediction... Tory majority by around 50 seats.

    @HighlandTiger - Not been in touch since the Nordfrim bonanza, that you most generously shared with the Forum- where we all did very well and, mostly, got what we wanted!
    Back in the real world, as you say, and that is where our current situation is failing, trying to please those who want it all ways!
    All the Best, HT!

    I think there are too many people getting stressed out because they are not getting the brexit they want.
    Well news flash........ ! In the real world not everyone gets 100% of what they want.
    The only brexit I want is to leave the EU and do trade deals on the best terms we can get from countries around the world. Anything else happens I'll live with it.
    The ONLY way to get a version of brexit, or not remaining in the EU, can ONLY be achieved by voting Tory. 
    Personally I'd advise everyone who doesn't want to stay in the EU to vote Tory. You may have to hold your nose to do so, but do it.
    You may not like the Conservatives, but voting for them in this one election to get out of the EU, doesn't stop you from going back to your previous party in future elections.

    Re. Brexit party v Conservatives. No point playing the blame game, but if voters do not use their brains when deciding who to vote for then we WILL end up with Corbyn as prime minister 
    It's very simple in any seat that has either a Tory MP or had a Tory candidate in  second place last election, you vote Tory. In all other seats you vote Brexit party. 
    The question is, do you want to leave the EU with 80% of what you actually wanted, or do you want to stay in the EU with 0% of what you wanted.
    With all the will in the world the brexit party IS NOT going to form the next government. So don't vote for them thinking that they will. The brexit party is a protest vote, nothing more nothing less. But there is no point using it as a protest vote if that vote gives you the opposite of what you desire. 
    Hold your nose as you vote, if you have to, but vote with your brains not your heart.

    @KDave @HighlandTiger  No point squabbling amongst ourselves re Brexit we all want the same out come. It is a great shame that BO JO states he will not engage with Nigel Farage. I think that is very short sighted & hope he will have a change of tune rapidly as we all know Corbyn is the biggest danger to this country.
    As HT I think it was said lets get out of Europe & the do what they have done many times, move the goalposts on them & sort a deal that suits us. Maybe a bit too simplistic, but where there is a will there is a way.

    I read this earlier. If true, it's the answer needed to get everyone into electric cars. I've always said, that until a battery can be created that can go as far as a car can go on one tank of petrol, and recharge within 10 minutes, then electric cars will never become the norm.
    If what is claimed can actually be backed up, this solves the problem.
    Great news, although we will need to build half a dozen nuclear power stations to create the electricity needed to be equivalent of the energy currently being supplied via petrol/diesel.

    The year is 2192. The British Prime Minister visits Brussels to ask for an extension of the Brexit deadline. No one remembers where this tradition originated, but every year it attracts many tourists from all over the world.
