The political parties, all of them, will only start listening to your needs and wants if they believe that you will get out and VOTE!
(and yes I know the age demographics of this website is more than likely of the over aged 50 bit of the age spectrum but I like to think we have some younger readers/contributors. )
Young people - get out and vote! (and tell your mates and sibs to do the same thing. 4hours and 30mins left in which to do so as I type this).
Just got back from the polling station.
My jaw almost dropped to the floor. Saw some young people, looked like 18/19 year olds with polling cards in their hands, on the way to the station.
Keep it up!
Who are the rude ar$eholes outside the polling station near the high school?
and then I saw the exit poll result and my jaw dropped even further.
And then the results started to come in ..............
I wonder if Nicola Sturgeon will want another election because she didnt like the result of this one? LOL.
And yet, Labour still lost the election. We won't be seeing Worzel Gummidge entering No 10.
And there you have it. A positive campaign by Labour has resulted in a massive 40% of the vote supporting Labours progressive policies.
Meanwhile, the nasty Conservatives lose seat after seat due in no small part to the nasty name-calling like the above from Burnside and the disgraceful mainstream media.
Make no mistake, Labour won this election. Against all the odds and despite all the lies, slurs, namecalling and nastiness of the Tories, their billionaire supporters in the media, and their nasty lapdogs
So when is Worzel entering No 10 to take power?
You don't get it Burnside. You nasty lot were expecting a 50-seat majority and for Labour to be wiped out. Positive political campaigning turned that upside down. Democracy is the winner.
Tories win, Labour lost FACT.
One thing we did learn from this election?
Diane Abbott.........really good at Hide & Seek.
Diane Abbott won her seat by a large majority but don't worry about that Huw, just play the bullshit card like all right wing twunts.
Lets face it, you won't want facts to get in the way of your horrible little bigotted views lol
She got 75% share of the vote, despite a nasty racist and sexist campaign against her. I've read that this makes her officially the most popular MP ever.
The "seriously ill" Abbott still had enough strength in her bones to send Tweets throughout the night. And I suppose no matter how incompetent a person is, it helps if their boss used to share the bed.
What did I say to deserve that????
I made a joke....,.admittedly not a very good one....,but come on!!!
@Scapegoat. well you've had an hour to respond to my 19:44 post and haven't bothered.
You are obviously just another keyboard warrior who hides behind your pseudonym.
You, and others on this forum, demonstrate a level of hatred of your fellow man, based on your political views, that I cannot concieve and cannot pretend to understand.
It is you, and those like you, who are the bigots. You need to take a long hard look at yourselves.
@webmaster. Please delete my account immediately. I have no time for this any longer.
Imploring all the young people to get out to vote didn't work too well did it, Lynne? Morris substantially increased her majority, and surpassed the combined vote of the other three candidates. It looks like this constituency is now a safe Tory seat, just as well Younger-Ross decided not to stand again, there's only so much humiliation he can take.
I know we can all get very parochial Burneside and that this is a Dawlish based website but........it functions via the World Wide Web
It was a general call to arms.
And what I said in the very first line of my first post still holds true
PS I see Ben Bradshaw's vote in Exeter was MASSIVE.
Do you really think the world is reading this site, and paying attention to what you say?
I have absolutely no idea Burneside who reads/posts on this site and where they may quite literally, physically, be based.
And neither do you.
